It’s funny, when I was a kid I was told I was the life of the party, that I was a social butterfly, that I loved being the center of attention. I think on the whole this is true, but I have times, lots of times, where I like to be alone. The problem is I don’t admit it. I run away and don’t tell anyone where I am going, I go to the bathroom and stay for 15 min, I don’t want to admit that I need the time to my self. It’s like I try and put up a front about who I really am.
We all have masks we wear, this one is mine, or one of them. Why don’t I just admit that I need the to my self, why don’t I just listen to how I am feeling. The worst part is I do the thing I think I should not and don’t even admit it to myself. If I could just listen to myself I could take the time I need when I should, instead of sneaking it in and feeling guilty.
What do you do that you feel guilty about that you should not? Maybe we can help each other choose ourselves and be happy and fulfilled.
