Why do I feel scared and confused about becoming an adult?
What does it mean to accept that this is my
What is it I’m looking for? Will I find it? Does it matter?
Why am I so alone? Why do I feel like the burden of the world is on my shoulders?
What was I put on this planet to do, to fulfill?

Why do I become so immensely filled with thought and feeling that it seems uncontrollable?
How do I know I'm "normal"? What is normal?
I wonder why my parents decided that I had to come here, far away from them and my friends and everything I loved and that I was used to?
