This is not my story, or yours or anyone.
This is about us. “US” being a reference to that 1 among 10 people,
“the introvert world.”
The least understood,
The misinterpreted one’s.
Maybe we lack that exuberance outside. It is not that we do not wish to be visible or there is an absence of undying willingness to remind people time and again that we’re here to live a life which works according to the way it should. This
is to the people who struggle through crowds. It appears like everyone’s going to judge us for anything and everything. What if we fail to connect? What if our words fail to pop out from our mouths at the right time when we finally recollect our thoughts to share it with people. Why just thoughts? We struggle through basic talks, while arguments and debates remain a dreamed but wayward aspects of our nature. Why is that our favourite seat happens to be placed at the corner of a room always, is that while we peek through spaces of people around to search for a place where we ought to be unchaperoned. a place where we find solace. Is it that we are in despair all the time? No. We find maximal peace with ourselves. While you can look at us appear to be totally blank , while you may find extreme peace sitting next to us. But if you happen to be given a super power to look through our minds, you might be left startled through our thoughts and the marathons they play with one another and while we ourselves fail to decide which one won finally. It is because while you are totally abled to pounce on things and make them a topic of discourse, we happen to lack doors to let them out which ultimately creeps in there and entangles for existence with other presumptions. We are the uninvited lot for gatherings which partially happens to be our own reluctance to show up. Its not that we are unfriendly. Who doesn’t want friends and peers? But when you have experiences through early stages of life and sometimes throughout a lifetime, you acknowledge souls who have failed to understand the complexity of natures in people and us, being specific. We guard ourselves from distress coz it leaves an undying effect on our souls forever. You find us totally content when we have just ourselves through hours and days and weeks. We happen to charge our will through it, a will to manage through happenings and people we face now and then. We are not exasperated on plans getting cancelled. Infact we find a sigh of relief.
A relief to not have to face folks again, even for sometime.
There’s a multitude of shades of us.
This happens to be the start.
