Olga Vasilieva
Fight

Imagine a cocoon. Inside it life making its way out develops. If something external breaks a hole trying to help it will be born weak or die. But having overcome the path of maturation on its own and having strengthened oneself, it will be ready to meet the outside world. Nature creates obstacles, but it takes time, patience and work.

Fighting is a natural way of power.
