The Iranian people, mainly youths, live in a confusing parallel society in which the borderline between privacy and public life is not known. You must act as if you have 4-5 characters in any given situation depending on the time, people and environment you occupy. It's a confusing world. I don't wanna be blunt or rude to my fellow countrymen back home, but I often wonder how many of us inside and outside of the regime's prison, that is Iran, are suffering from some sort of mental illness. I mean, it takes a lot of energy to live like this. Many live double lives... One day they're quiet and obedient citizens of a theocracy and the other day they gotta be themselves. It definitely creates all sort of mental problems. I was there and I attest to this. And Believe it or not, it is real.
