What is it like to be you?

Tiring and frustrating at times, amazing and fulfilling at other times. I was born in the right moment and in the right place and it allowed me to have a life that is so much more than what the average world citizen can have. Being aware of it makes it sometimes very difficult to enjoy and to find real purpose. Always asking myself: Am I making the world a better place?
