You know that feeling..
When you’re surrounded by people but feel like the only person on the planet..
You want to scream and kick and cry and yell at them saying “HEY, IM HERE TOO!!”
But you don’t. You can’t.
And everything starts to blur together into one big mesh of laughter and feelings and emotions and nothingness.
And then WHAM!
Everything stops inside this space of self preservation and you feel like you can’t breathe and you’re suffocating and withering and dying, but that’s okay.
You look about. Observe the things happening around you and time has kept moving, pushing, SHOVING, but you’re still there inside a bubble where time has ceased to exist.
It’s as if the world is bouncing around like a pinball machine, yet the shield around you deflects everything within a 5 foot radius.
And inside this space, you become safe.
