  • Fernando Pessoa: May 20th, 1931

    "Today I feel as though I am living in a dream. The world around me seems to be a strange and unreal place, full of shadows and half-formed thoughts. It is as if I am walking through a mist, unable to see clearly the path ahead.

    I wonder if this feeling of detachment is a result of my constant introspection, my tendency to live inside my own head. I have always been more comfortable with my thoughts than with the world around me, and sometimes it feels as though my thoughts have taken on a life of their own, separate from me.

    But perhaps this sense of disconnection is also a sign of growth, of evolution. Maybe it is a necessary step on the path to a deeper understanding of myself and the world. Maybe I need to step back from the everyday reality in order to see things from a new perspective.

    I do not know what the future holds, but I am filled with a sense of hope and anticipation. Whatever lies ahead, I am ready to face it with an open mind and an open heart. For now, I will continue to explore the mysteries of my own mind, trusting that the journey itself will bring me closer to the truth."
