What is life for if you canโ€™t enjoy yourself? Why has religion crushed all that is good in this life? Why do you allow yourself to be led by all the shoulds and ought-not-to’sย they rammed down our throats when we didnโ€™t know any better.

Todos dejamos trozos de nuestras almas ย con otros, en la esperanza que no nos lleguen hacer el mal.ย We all leave bits of our souls with others in the hopes that they wonโ€™t harm us. Thatโ€™s a life truly lived; when you arenโ€™t afraid of getting hurt. When you know that the wounds left by others are now a warriorโ€™s scars.
