It's funny how things seem to you on one hand, and how those exact same things can seem to someone else. When I was younger I used to wonder whether my concept of the colour yellow, for example, was the same as everyone else's. Did they see yellow as I saw yellow? Was what I thought of as yellow in fact red to someone else? The same with words. Where you see or hear the same word so often you begin to forget its meaning, or you can no longer tell if it's even a real word.

I wonder that aswell - is my blue everyone else's blue ;)

Hope things work out for you, I'm sure with a little time and space you'll come up with the right path of action.

Remember you have a great talent and in the long term don't waste it or throw it away.

I used to wonder that, too. There's no way of knowing, I suppose, how others really perceive anything.

Perception is a strange thing, like people who loose limbs yet still feel pain in them.
