I’m trying to be the person I needed six months ago.
I have been asked why I’ve changed, and I scoff. I haven’t changed, not really.
I have changed from being in the shadows, watching people like me walk with a smile painted on their features.
And I am tired of it.
I try to be bubbly, sweet, and kind. Because six months ago, that is who I wanted. I wanted someone who noticed my sad little smiles but didn’t really say anything. I wanted someone who made me laugh more than I thought humanly possible. I wanted someone who could handle ups, as well as my downs.
Overall, I have just become the person I needed to.
