about this story

Life is always complicated and overwhelming, and the future seems terrifying because of the unknown. To eat what life gives you or to be eaten by it. It'll be on your hands if you want to fight against the negative circumstances and challenges.

My life once seemed very complicated and full of fear. When I try to look forward to its greenery, it seemed very long and hard to reach what I wanted to be. A fresh but scary environment to enter to. Overwhelming, yes. However, there's no stopping. Terrified I may be but I was still walking forward. And along the way, I got to the point where I felt very down- that it felt like I didn't notice everything surrounding me became monochromatic. Sometimes, I lack to know the reason why I'd suddenly cry or break down. I couldn't see the real beauty after being blinded with only black and white. Even in my own reflection, it was hard to identify what color would fit me.

But then on the long run, someone found me and invited me to a church. It was a short stop I agreed to go to. For once, I confidently said that this was the partial answer I seek, and other answers might be on the side walks along the way I never gave any attention to. I'm always too serious overthinking how scary is the future that I forgot to rest and give some reflection about the steps I should take.

Life will be always tough and I'm still on the process of developing myself. So, I'm expecting for more blooming and fall seasons that will come my way on the long run.
