I feel like a shell of a person. A seemingly functioning human being, yet on the inside there is nothing. I am empty. My head swells with expectations from others, but where are my own values? Somewhere along the way, I lost them while taking the path most traveled. My heart beats for something more than monotony. My dreams stray away from the norm. I am stuck in a routinary existence and it seems as if I have lost all hope of escaping. I think of what I truly want, what I desire and all that results is an overwhelming feeling of confusion.
(As I sit here writing I feel so nervous that people will actually read this and see how I feel, how I really feel. It’s terrifying).
