I’m Not the One Who Is Lost

Pink square with the word "empathy " in dark pink . "it only takes a moment " in white .

Slowly think about changing places.

Your new place:

1. You are a student.
2. You feel people’s thinking..
3. Your power < this place.

Watch this.

Now. How are you feeling?

How are you feeling feeling note writing adult writing about you?

People learning all around. You can.

I am not lost. I am me.
