I saw this photo and had to instantly save it.
I felt the energy within these words 110%.
I Remember being in school listening to everything everyone told me.
Whenever “I” had questions or did not agree with something.
I was told to be quiet or to not question.
To question life itself makes sense to me.
If you look at the picture you notice a “teacher” “teaching” multiple students.
“I” was that student in the back of the class.
Daydreaming about “unrelated” things that are not involved in “school” aka the system.
I felt like a prisoner of my own thoughts. In school, you can never express yourself to your fullest.
You are a “robot” that “agrees” and “follows” “commands” from the “leader” being the “teacher.”
As if you can only say yes and there is no “free-will.”
In school, there is no free will.
Originality is erased in “school.”
I could ramble on and on forever.
It has just been within the past few years I have “fully pursued” my creative journey.
In school, my art “skills” never had the chance to be fully expressed.
Now 2 plus years later here “I am.”
Becoming what I never “was.”
School never let me have the opportunity to become my greatest version.
I was always the “last person” to finish the tests/exams.
Usually getting the worst grade in the class and then defining myself by my grade.
Always getting help and being tutored.
“learning” things I never wanted to “learn.”
“Now” I know that I am “special”
I am here to be my original self.
Not to be competitive against other like-minded individuals similar to me.
I am here to be myself.
If I ever have children I will probably homeschool them.
Be your greatest version and have no one stop you from being your true self.
One last thing I would like to share.
“Question everything, including yourself. Do not accept what one tells you. Think for yourself and do not “accept” what “authority,” tells you.”
