Sometimes, when things don’t go right with life
Times when you find yourself waking up on the wrong side of the bed more often than not
Times when you wonder if you weren’t meant to be born as who you are now
Have you ever had the gnawing thought that you have been living someone else’s life all along? Another child’s, perhaps...
Maybe then you wouldn’t have gotten compared all the bloody time to other children from other families who seem more put-together when in reality, everybody is just playing a game of dollhouse
Maybe then, there wouldn’t be any such things as monthly shrink visits because your mental health would be in tip-top condition
You’re seen as an ordinary person for once in your damn life- another Jane Doe instead of the socially-awkward teen you’ll always be known as even though you’re no longer a teen
Perhaps then, nobody would treat you as the rare jewel you are but a simple rhinestone
Perhaps then, you wouldn’t have the depth you have right now to be even writing this
Perhaps then, you might be 'just like everybody else'
