This is my lo for Scrapvivor Week 5 "Put It In Writing".
I must confess, I have never really been as confident as I pretend to be. I like to be in large groups. I even sometimes (well a lot of the time) like to be the center of attention, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I am confident and self-assured. I think I like to be in big crowds because then I can hide without really being hidden. It’s kind of like “Where’s Waldo?” He’s there in the picture somewhere and he is the one that you are looking for, so you know he’s there, but finding him can sometimes be difficult. That’s how I feel sometimes. I want people to know I am there, and I want them to look for me. In fact I want to know that I am being looked for, but I just want them to find me and then turn the page and start looking for me all over again. But, Waldo is also an individual with unique characteristics. You can pick him out in a crowd if you look hard and long enough. I am unique and I really only want to be with those who care enough about me to search for me and not give up till they find me. But in other respects, Waldo is familiar and common place. He blends into the crowd so much so he seems to fade into the background. When I am scared or feeling anxious, I find solace in knowing that I am just an ordinary person with the same fears and insecurities that everyone else around experiences. I am no different than you in this respect, but in others my individuality is distinctively clear.
