“Sometimes, your insecurities and your inexperience may lead you, too, to embrace other people’s expectations, standards or values. But you can harness that inexperience to carve out your own path, one that is free of the burden of knowing how things are supposed to be, a path that is defined by its own particular set of reasons.”

tell me why

It was dark, except for a few lights. The  museum had closed most of its exhibitions. The seat at the info counter was empty. I sat on a bench where it was dimly lit. I flipped through the free postcard stand. I got bored. My phone was untouched. My drink was left on the floor. I stared into empty space. My mind was empty.

I started to cry.

I didn’t know why.

I still don’t know why.
