Some things in life cannot be explained or understood.

You are one of these things.

What you like and dislike, your smiles and your worries, what you welcome in your life and what you avoid — this is you, and no, it does not need to be explained to anyone else.

Because chances are, they won’t really understand. But you don’t need to explain yourself to yourself, either, for the same exact reason.

You can observe your nature, feel it, be aware of it and return to it, but it’s very hard to explain it and truthfully there is no need to do so.

Just like in beautiful color combinations the tones are either very similar or in harmony with each other, your nature will be felt and appreciated only by those who are supposed to feel and appreciate it.
