I never really reacted to well in a crowded place.
Following behind others’ hopes and dreams, afraid to be seen as an individual or different, if you will. Always living behind the shadows of those you admire until they disappoint you with revealing their insecurities and guilty pleasures. During their reveal, you realize they’re human, nothing special. Just a mediocre gutless, spineless mortal that too chooses to hide in crowded places.
So I advise you to step away from the crowd and find out who you are.
I remember being a kid and looking up to and worshiping this one individual. I can’t even put into words how I felt when I saw them fall and burst into flames right before my eyes. Their ashes fell to my feet, and I gently stepped over them and made a promise to myself. I swore that I would never feel that level of disappointment again. I distanced myself from all crowded places.
Working on you becomes satisfying and complete when you separate yourself from all the unnecessary noise. Some may view you as reclusive, but you function more effectively without drivel.
Once I evacuated from the crowded place, I could breathe and see all the perfections that I carry. I stopped telling myself that I’m not good enough, but I’m worthy. Crowded places will have you guessing your self-worth, and hesitation becomes your companion. Until you remove yourself, you can’t help but compare and compete. Which, in return, will more times than not end in disappointment. But with space, you will learn that the best competition is you vs. you.
With self-growth and maturity, crowded places are just that. Crowded and leaving you without room to grow into being your hero.
