Back To Myself

An alumnus of both Ficlets.com and Ficly.com. Who, for some weird reason, is starting his time here with an abundance of cannibalism-themes stories. O.o


For the first time in a long time, I feel like myself. Of course, this does have its pros and cons.

On the pro side, I'm actually social. I can actually engage people in conversation. Conversations that I honestly care about. And about anything! Music, history, art, current events. Anything!

Also, I don't feel useless. For months, I've had the mindset that I am, even at my most constructive, a complete and utter waste of good oxygen. Oh, sure, I would put on the masks that I need to get through the day. People saw me as being helpful and happy, but that's just because it's what I knew they expected of me. Inside, I just didn't care. Now, however, I do care. I honestly want to help people, and feel overjoyed when I do. Even if it's something as simple as giving a stranger directions to where they're going, I feel amazing.

Unfortunately, feeling like myself does come with its downside.

Like the fact that the voices are back.

A beautiful set-up! What voice you've given you're character!

I can relate to how it feels to be this narrator.

Thanks. :-) I actually did base the character on myself, just without the voices. (At least, that's what the voices keep telling me.) ;-)
