Self-doubt, escapism, depression -sometimes they're part of the package, but it's a price I am more than willing to pay for freedom. It is a constant struggle, remaining true to myself, and it easily explodes into recklessness and implodes into self-destructiveness, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.
I salute you for your courage and determination.
