How much do we have to keep ourselves in hiding? Why can we not own our flaws and walk boldly for the rest of our life? Nothing stopped Helen Keller from writing. She knew she had to live with it throughout her life.
Our life on this planet is limited, and not all of us are born perfectly or live healthy life. But this does not mean we should stop living or hide from the world.
