-Whenever his explanations of his name changes, people asked “why is it different all the time?”. He answered “Does it really matter though? It’s not that important“
Anxiety and loneliness exist all the time.
To me, how to reduce really matters and I think it’s homework that I have to work on for the rest of my live.
All emotions and circumstances are different. That’s why life is all about thinking. Therefore, I want to say “I’m also anxious and so are you, so let’s find out the answer together”
Did you enjoy the episode of BTS Suga? Even though he is like a superman producing BTS & other artists’ songs, it makes me sad that he cried in the shower after ‘AMAS’ stage because of pressure.
Just as how rough waves and strong wind make a great sailor, I want to send love and support to Suga, who has overcome all the pain and became such a successful artist in his position now. Well done Suga!!
