"The mask of an eternal Soul"
This representation though not entirely accurate, I feel is a good depiction of the energies that reside in all of us. We can change our present state and, like a gift we gave to ourselves, brighten up whatever situation that we are in.
The internal struggle is never easy and it was never meant to be. . .
When we can learn to adaptor perspective, only then can we grow.
