It told me, “You must quit holding back…You must set off and let the world know you are alive. even when being different could mean to be at odds with the world, you must be firm in your stance. Else, you will suffer for the desires that you would have given to your heart if not for the sake of compromising what you want…<o:p></o:p></span></span></span></div>
