Personal Quotes (10)

I'm the kind of person who feels scared of showing too many things towards people. I'm scared of people knowing a lot of things about me and having them focus on one thing about me. I'm scared of not being able to feel joy in expressing myself willingly
I quickly forget the memories of hard times. Just like everyone else, every day is a challenge for me
I am influenced and inspired by things that don't speak. By beautiful and pretty objects rather than people
If one always takes the safe road without any risks, he will have no change in his life
I try to feel the good vibe of other people. I try to receive good, powerful vibes and return it to them
I don't want to fail at love. It's been a while since I was in a relationship. If my relationship with someone that I had finally found to love didn't go well, I would be devastated. I would be overcome with shame.
My job is one which you have to do while imagining the things you aren't showing. I can't not think about how I look. What do I have to do so as to express myself differently from others? I think that's why I receive more stimulus from visual things. Liking design is a kind of breakthrough for me. Looking at beautiful things relieves my stress. I think art fills the gap between music and acting.
The depression that comes when you're exposed is much bigger and anxious than the depression that comes when you're locked in your own time. Of course, our generation tells us that it's good to communicate as much as you can and get close with the public. But I think it's necessary to keep a sense of distance.
Sometimes, I get presented as more than I am, fancier than I am. But really, there's nothing to me and trying to come to my senses in all that confusion, I think that's the truth inside me and I tend to debate between the two identities.
I think that a person who'd risk things would be short-lived. Because it seems that, in the end, risking things is having ambition. Because it seems that people who have ambition are always betting away their lives. If you meet people like that, they are really hard-pressed.
