Hidden Door

This is an experience that helped shape the way I think of problems. It was around 2004/2005, my first year of university. There were a lot of family issues that were happening around me that I didn’t know how to solve or escape. I didn’t feel brave or positive at the time. I remember just…

As We Grow Older
