The Human Aspect of Sebastian

I had it all, the job, the family, the body, and I sought everything that could heighten my performance in all aspects. I was addicted to being the best I could be. But after years of chasing perfection, I did not recognize the man I had become. My entire life, I had filled the void inside me with performance, and eventually, I had forgotten about the relationships in my life. I couldn't keep the mask on anymore and struggled to see any hope in living.
