Though, wouldn't it be awesome if it had killed all the parts of my brain that hold me back from being the best version of myself? The unnecessary fears, the useless feelings of the past, the grudges, bitterness or behaviors, bad habits... There are many more things of course... I wonder how much of my brain would be left.
Then, where the "balance" would be left?
Opposing extremes and counterweights over and across our shoulders are certainly needed in order to survive and safely advance on the tightrope of life one more step. :)
