Story: Let Me Be Me

I feel a ‘sense of belonging’ when I am by myself. Especially whilst travelling to places where I am around people I don’t know, complete strangers. That is when you can truly identify yourself as an individual because you’re not pretending to be someone else. When we’re with our family and friends, we often conform to fit in with them and their expectations. Whereas, when I am on my own, in an unfamiliar environment, I am me. That is when I’m the most content.
