Blindly Wishing

And I can tell just what you want
You don’t want to be alone
You don’t want to be alone
-Two Door Cinema Club 

All I want for my birthday, the only day when I allow myself to feel superior than everyone else, is to not be alone. And for people to care. There, I’ve said it.

You might think of this post as a pathetic call for attention. I couldn’t care less.

  1. Happy birthday, Michelle. You know that as an Introvert that you are in the minority, but have hope. Everyone I have ever known has had something that made them feel that they didn’t fit in. They are overweight, or they were a foster kid, or they grew up poor, or they were abused by people who should have loved them, etc. Life will get better. There are lots of us out here. You have found a way to express yourself. Keep writing…try finding something…just one thing… that interests you today and write about it. I’ll be checking in to see what it is. Surprise me.

    1. Hello. 🙂 Thank you. I think it would be safe to say that I love who I am as an introvert, in the situations when I find myself enjoying myself by spending time alone, but it’s hard to say the same in a society where extroversion is much more significant in obtaining a job, meeting more people etc. Like you said, writing is the only way for me to express myself as doing it verbally scares me. I will. Thank you.
