Today I had a nightmare.
I was with my friends.
Something was chasing us.
I was scared, I thought of nothing but myself and the will to survive.
I forgot all about my friends.
As humans, survival is hardwired into our system.
And because I was scared, I instantly clicked into survival mode.
A mode where we think about only our own survival.
As this thought came through to my mind, I stopped running, and I turned around.
I took the hand of my best friend and then we ran together.
It takes every ounce of energy to fight our own will to survive.
But I know, if I was the one that was left behind, she would've come back for me.
