One person can change what happens in your life but a special person changes how you view things, how you behave which creates a whole new you, and changes what happens in your life.
I didn't think that would happen to me. I didn't have friends nor did I try to make some. I was fine being me, by myself, alone. It gave me the ability to not care what others thought and independence so I accepted it. In school I excelled with no effort without laughing with others or even enjoying my time there instead I read.
On my free time I read or walked around the field with nothing else to do. When I went home I hung out on the tire swing, alone. When people tried to have a conversation with me, I retreated into my shell and shut them out. When I was injured, I dealt with it myself in silence then walked it off like the pain wasn't there nagging at me.
I wanted to play and laugh with the others but I wouldn't allow myself to be free of my shell, afraid of what would happen. Then suddenly everything changed.
