With today’s daily prompt, I am pretty much sure that I can relate 100%. I’ve always described myself to be a wallflower and an introvert. Experiencing something of being outside is definitely common to me. I’ve been faced with situations wherein I feel like I am outside of things, looking into the window, and just observing.
One of the memories I’ve had of experiencing being outside is during occasions in which I can’t say a thing about a topic being discussed. In my mind, I felt like panicking because the people who are in that moment with me might think that I am so shy and quiet. It’s true. I admit it. Even if that is the case, it doesn’t mean that I have nothing to say. On the other hand, sometimes I really don’t have anything to say about a certain topic because I can’t relate to it. Why should I even pretend to become engrossed in the topic, when I am not even interested. So, what I do is drown the conversation in my head and just make my presence known again when I can join in because I know what the topic is about.
There are more more experiences that I have encountered which made feel like I am at the outside. This is just one of the many that just popped in my mind first.
