Notes: I’m not allowed to say “Can you imagine” especially to @minhosmeanhoe because then we just talk about sexy things like this. You guys can thank her for giving me this idea and cranking through bits of the story for it.
This is a manifesto to the youth of today: Young people who enter the working world after many years of studying careers they didn’t desire. They are far from adolescents but not yet men. Here exists an internal conflict between what they want to portray to the world and who they really are. When the future they are going to face is not clear or there is simply no awareness of where their future is headed, the mental toll can arrive after the first years of their professional career.
They end up burnt out, frustrated and exhausted: the wounds on the face and on the body are an extreme exaggeration of what really happens emotionally after so much “pretending” in everyday life.
