At times I feel as if I am very far away from the people I’m around. When we talk, I have to make my voice extra loud so it can pierce the awkwardness that shrouds me. During those times when I don’t have the energy or inclination to make myself heard, I say nothing.
But even nothing makes me tired.
So I do as much as I can each day, and even on days where as much as I can is next to nothing, I’m grateful for this chance.
