no stranger than fiction


when you were younger, did you ever think you were the only person who had a brain, who could think, who lived, and everyone else was just put there to be in your life? (okay maybe it was just me... *tugs collar*) but that was how i felt till i was 9 and wondered what a friend was doing, and went, 'holy mother of moses other people continue living their life when i am not around.'

it was a relief the fate of the world no longer depended on me.

  2. Hahaha! I remember being about - ten? I guess - and for the first time realizing that my parents had actual lives of their own (!!!), they weren't SIMPLY my parents. I remember that the insight of that really threw me...

  4. I felt the exact same way, but instead, I thought everyone around me was a robot.
