Do you know what I’m talking about?
You know, when life suddenly seems to stop and you take a good look at yourself.
For a moment, it’s like looking into a mirror and not recognising the person looking back at you.
Then you realise, that person is you.
And you can’t help but to wonder…
What the heck happened?
How did I become like this?
Where did “I” go?
It’s that sort of despair that only the course of time can cause.
You feel like you’re gripping for a past that you can never reach again.
You stare and stare into your own eyes but feel totally lost.
And you feel empty, hollow even, when you can’t seem to find a trace of the person you used to be.
The insight seems like a dream – no, a nightmare, which you can’t awaken from.
It’s unbelievable, unacceptable and just… wrong.
It’s times like these when you feel no hope for your future.
Everything that’s good seems to be behind you.
