In a Shell :: Beday 362

I watched this video at work today and just started crying right there over the towels I was folding.

I used to be that person. The one in a shell. Painfully shy.

Just like Harry, theatre was one of the things that helped to break that shell. But I can’t help feeling like if I had this video back then I might have chiselled my way out of it sooner.

I think about how I was back then and I feel like in a way my shell was necessary, just as Ze Frank narrates, but I hid in that shell far longer than I needed to.

And now, I’m thriving. I’m the kind of person who loves people and social interaction, and I’m brave and fun and exciting. I’m moving to a new country just because I want to.

I’m leaving my shell behind.

About Lananification

I'm a twenty-something Canadian trying to figure out what it means to be an "adult". I've recently moved to England to try to be an adult in a different country. It is just as hard. My Wanderings are travel blogs; sometimes I travel, and lots of times I write about it. My Meanderings are thoughts from this crazy, random head of mine. Songs and Reasons Why happens when I pick a song that means a lot to me, and tell you why, and then let you listen to it. In 2013 I wrote a blog every day for the whole year, minus a couple. Check those out in the BEDAY tag if you want.
