I really just let myself vomit into this piece...
Life just doesn’t feel real, isolation with social media has made me feel so strange and I wanted to communicate that as rawly as I could. Knowing everything through a screen and without much physical contact with the outside world has each of us experiencing a morphed version of reality. I often feel insane, and have many inner battles with myself questioning the reality around us.
