I found this story so intense on so many levels that I'm almost out of words.
First, thank you for sharing!
Second, the ending questions were very impactful to me. I think, as tough as life can be, we owe it to ourselves to unclutter our lives. If not, I've noticed we suffer more.
Lastly, it is my belief that the bubble will expand unless we change ourselves and become a new version of us.
