I have had the mind of perceiving life from my perspective. Forcing ideas to others while believing it's the most logical. Wisdom is surely humbleness. I will say, patterns do not define us, we might be repetitive beings on basic level but, we are adaptive beings based on events. Each person has a different experience and perspective at same age

This really was a mind opener. I now see why I have been weighing on so much guilt and hatred. I need to forgive myself and others
