ropes

what is there to transcend if these ropes are all we know?

 

i've had this concept in my head for a few weeks now, but didn't get around to it... finally, today i just felt too frustrated with myself for not taking enough photos.

 

our ropes... they exist and they don't. we were born into a society with certain expectations, certain limitations, certain possibilities.

it's not about 'fuck society', it's about accepting our ropes, accepting the reality we live in. and knowing that society and it's ropes were made up. they were created collectively in our minds. with that knowledge, we can live in society without having to feel like a failure when we don't live according to it's expectations... we can climb our ropes, not get tied up in them.

there are so many heavy hearts out there burdened by things in their minds because they are tied up and see no other way. there are other ways. climb your ropes, feel lighter <3

 

(and as always, please share your personal interpretation if you have got one).
