Looks like with the second person dot creates kind of like a convenience distance. Like you're sort of watching yourself from afar you're disoriented so that sort of was a suitable way of like how you might feel when you suddenly like arrived in this in your home country where you haven't been for twenty years and then you know she's the person who season really sure who she is like she sorted feels very uncertain.

You know we're both like the same gender but like really like mattias. The character who. I feel like he resembles me more because i think sort of his struggles of just kind of like his his kinda like desire for like privacy in sort of like also the way he he really wants to help people right unlike. That's an instinct. I recognize myself to just sort of like. Oh yeah like..
