"I think about dying but I don´t want to die. Not even close. In fact my problem is the complete opposite. I want to live, I want to escape. I feel trapped and bored and claustrophobic. There´s so much to see and still I find myself doing nothing at all. I´m still here in this metaphorical bubble of existence and I can´t quite figure out what the hell I´m doing or how to get out of it..."

School is a tragic place. It takes up your complete youth and suddenly it is over and you have to cope with the emptiness it leaves behind. You have to decide what to study, where to live and what to do with your life. There is a constant pressure, from parents, school, friends, society. Everyone wants an immediate decision. And that´s the point where we have to stop. We don´t live for other people. Don´t do what someone expects you to do. You don't have to be the person everyone sees in you. You are who you want to be.

So stop making compromises. Escape. Run. Discover. Break expectations. Overcome barriers. The entire world is laying in front of you. Take the leap into the unknown.

If you don´t know what to study, it´s okay. You are so young. You life just began. Take as much time as you need. And even if you never find your place in the world, it´s okay. At least you lived, you risked something, you didn´t settle.

Remember that nothing should stop you.

You are free...
