After you traverse digital forums long enough you begin to form a persona, a mask of yourself that you wear for whatever reason.
You may even change persona often as I have done in the past.
In the end however do you wear the mask or does the mask wear you?
You begin to forget what you looked like under the mask, you lose the ability to reconstruct the fragments of your old personality for it is shattered irreparably like glass.
For you are like a Jailer of your true personality, without letting it vent out every so often you tend to lose the key to its cage and eventually you lose that key in the dark oblivion of your mind.
Thus is the problem I have encountered lately, for under this digital mask there lies a man.
Under his skin lies flesh and under the flesh lies bones.
However, I am not that man, for I am Requiem~ on these forums.
But after you adapt so rapidly to the changing realities so often and change persona to keep that precious bit of sanity you keep your sanity but you merely lose yourself in the process.
Thus, I have come to a conclusion, everything comes at a cost.
Now that should seem obvious but anything can be risked as that cost.
Your life, your sanity, and even yourself.
Always remember who you are.
