Is it a selfish thing, to be absolutely true to ones core? The more I am exploring myself, the more liberated I feel – but there is always a shadow lurking somewhere behind me. Like I am abandoning someone or something else in the process. While trying to nurture my nature, I am also stepping out of old skin that people know and love. The act of self-discovery and exploring the independence of the soul, is also the act of abandoning something else.
