    I've always believed that society does not pay enough attention to mental health. Edzo is a good example of it. Mothers claim to know their child but then they go ahead and commit suicide or do other self harming things...We live in a world where people will never truly understand each other and that's really tragic but the least we can do is try to take care of our loved ones to prevent them from ending like this.

    I was worried that people would find out my inmost nature and I did not want to be warned against anything. I was also afraid that people would not see me in the portrait, and consider it another whim of a buffoon, that it would only make everybody laugh and that would be the worst thing.

    I used the word “ugly” just now, but there are people who cannot tell the difference between ugliness and beauty
