Drawing the curtains.
“There comes a certain point in your life when you start to withdraw from people, preferring to build high walls around you, crawl into a cave and live in your own world where you indulge in emotions, thoughts and dreams which only you can understand. You don’t have to pretend. You don’t have to act the role, if you don’t feel like it. You don’t have to make a socially-acceptable comment for the sake of it. You don’t have to second-guess yourself and wonder if the words that were spoken were true or a pack of lies. You don’t have to please.
You can be yourself and not someone else you have to pretend to be.”
I stole this passage from D W’s post of the same title. Though both of us are being entangled in webs each spun by our own eight-legged creatures otherwise known as Emotions, I think we are alone when it comes to dealing with it, no matter how little we reveal and how much we hide from our friends and family.
You pushed yourself into this rut, and only you can crawl your way out of it.
