"You lonely, Wanda? I know how you feel. However you don't have much choice; you're just too mean to have a roommate. Who would be stupid enough to put up with you? I guess we're both destined to be alone."
Matt went on to find himself something to eat then sat down to his computer with Wanda staring over his shoulder.
How many people do you know like this? Are you like this yourself? We build walls around us and box ourselves into our little world with our routines to carry us through. We push people away, not even realizing that we are doing it.
If we really want to share our lives with someone, we need to open up and let someone in. Even for those of you that are coupled already, have you become closed to new things in your life? Are you too comfortable with the walls that you have built around you?
It's really stepping outside my comfort zone but if there is one resolution that I have made this year, it is to try at least one new thing each week. Something that I've never done before or maybe something that I tried at a younger age and didn't like. Once a week, I'll step outside my box and look around. I may share these things with you along the way or I may chose to keep them for myself. This week, I tried my hand at a little short fiction. I hope you liked it. Hopefully, I will spark something new in each of you as the year progresses.
