At 5 pm, on a rainy winter's day, you return from an intense day of work. It's been a day filled with the voices of many, drowning out your own thoughts. You've faced a heavy workload and the weight of expectations from others, leaving you feeling like everyone depends on you, even when you struggle to rely on yourself at times.
Now, you're finally home, heading straight upstairs to your sanctuary, where you're shielded from the world's demands. The windows in your room are open, allowing you to bask in the soothing sound of rain. Outside, you notice several trees, six in total, and you can even see your neighbour's houses, each seemingly as isolated as you feel in this moment.
You slip into your comfiest attire, open your laptop, settle in, and end the day with a good movie, offering yourself a brief escape from the demands of the outside world.
