"Life's no piece of cake, mind you, but the recipe's my own to fool with." -Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami.
"Time weighs you down like an old, ambiguous dream. You keep on moving, trying to slip through it. But even if you go to the ends of the earth you won't be able to escape it. Still, you have to go there - to the edge of the world. "- Haruki Murakami
Are we what we believe? We are all made differently. We have our own poisons and of course, what doesn't kill us make us stronger haha. We concoct powerful poisons for ourselves - that's the most amazing thing - and it's either we become addicted to them or we find ways to get better. Whether it's nature or nurture - it really doesn't matter. What matters is that we can never live somebody else's life, and that we know this to be true. Any sort of comparison then become superfluous, and we can begin seriously to live the life that we know is meant for us.
