I don’t need a ton of attention but sometimes I realize that I am acting invisible like I was in high school. And many times I don’t want to be invisible. I got to get used to the fact that I have an effect on other people. It sounds obvious but it’s a concept I have to learn even at this impossibly late stage in my life.
I want people to see me and I want people to care what I’m thinking. I want to say honestly what’s on my mind. I want people to see me and see my personality sometimes. I think of interesting stuff all the time. If someone happens to care how I’m feeling that’s just a bonus, it’s something I’m not used to but it’s nice.
