When did you give up?
Let’s not get into that, it must have been a while ago,though i did get back up. Sometimes stronger, sometimes because i saw a means to an end. Mostly because i believed it would all work out, if not here than in the after-life.
What changed since you got back up again?
I kept falling,further. Masking it. Looking for reasons to keep me here. Earthly pleasures, lust,glutton,you know ..the works. They were temporary,I must admit, some were fun, some seemed menial. However at the back of my mind I knew they were temporary. That is when i started searching for something infinite. Telling myself that this whole world is temporary, and if i can brave it out and make it here clean, then i’m guaranteed eternal happiness.
So what made you cross over ?
Self-doubt. It was a disease,a fear, it crippled me. It made me believe that whatever I did,I would never make it out of here with that halo. I stopped fighting it. I burnt all my bridges and here I am today.
Do you think you will be happy here?
I wish things were different and i would be, but we all know the truth, that i won’t.
