Photography『Lake Yamanaka, Japan』(2020)

From the village of Yamanakako in Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan

When living feels more painful than joyful, people are often bound by a sense of duty and responsibility that they must do, rather than obey what they want and want to do.

Joy comes from fulfilling the responsibilities that we must fulfill, but it gives us much more satisfaction in accomplishing what we truly desire.

Then, even if the attempt is unsuccessful and ended in labor, I would be convinced if I wanted to do it.

However, if you do it just because of your sense of duty and the expectations of others, nothing will remain except your disappointment and unhelpfulness in your failure.

I can only feel that I am an incompetent person who cannot even meet the expectations of others.
