Press “Start” to begin

I sometimes wish that I could escape all this, you know. Just run away someplace where no one knows me and can’t find me. I imagine that it’d be freeing. Obviously, it’s not practical nor possible in this day and age. It’s just a daydream that I have sometimes.

I feel like the odd one, like I don’t fit in. Makes it really awkward for family reunions or at a gathering with friends. Somehow, no one really knows me (except maybe for a few people, you know who you are). But I guess that’s fine. I don’t need everyone to know me but I would just like to be a part of something, I guess. I hide behind this mask of “I’m fine on my own. I’m a happy-go-lucky person.” Well, I wish.

Nobody really believes me when I say that I’m shy. Well, that’s cause they actually believe the front that I put up and no one really bothers to try to look beneath that. I wonder what they would think if I just drop all pretenses. I don’t think it’s wise to do that though. Being the people they are and with their background, I don’t think they’ll understand. So, why bother? With some of my choices, I wish life had a restart button or a go back to previous save option where I can just try again. But alas, it is not meant to be.

  1. Totally get you … Life is not that easy for introverts and shy people. But you don’t have to be in accordance with all the people. Why just think what will happen when you do that… just do it and then see what happens 🙂
