An Uncomfortable Soul- A Short Story
Once again she has started talking to herself. It’s her‘alone-time’ when thousands of thoughts are crossing her mind. All those questions that include ‘Why me?’and every situation that made her feel bad is flashing from the past.She has a bunch of people around her. Those people who have different mindsets, different goals, and different approach towards life.
May be she builds stronger bonds with lesser people.
She is questioning herself, “Is it worth being here?”May be she doubts because,in this temporary world, she still believes in profound talks and eternal relationships. Not just her life revolves around building connections rather she believes in living them.
People often perceive her as one with detached persona.But she is a human with reserved emotions who takes a while to truly open up.She hardly discusses her emotions except when she feels she has built a strong enough connection with a person. No doubt, socializing is a difficult task for her. And for a person like her who is very choosy about relationships, it becomes more difficult but once she makes a bond, it is for eternity.
Yes, she is an introvert. That shy human, that private being who is silently observing people. The one who is the easiest to talk to and the hardest to understand. The one who endeavors to keep a tough exterior to the world, but underneath is somebody who is extremely humble and caring.
Obviously, she needs somebody. She wants to talk. She wants to share. She is caring and sensitive but maybe not everyone deserves her.
She is a comfort to her companions’ soul but the paradox is she will herself remain an Uncomfortable Soul!!
