Individuals with extra time inform me how they proceed to deal with an exterior global that won't undergo their imagined calls for and an ego that's outlined by means of its insatiability, this stressed demon that without end desires extra, that lingers like a tapeworm on the gateway to the soul, devouring and rejecting in keeping with its wishes.
