Sometimes I wonder what my life would be like if I were one of them. Then I look at each and every one of them and I realize how fake all their ties are and how not interested I am in what they share. I see that I finally have what I really want, outside of all of them, and I'm better off than they are. But it's still interesting to think about what my life would be like if one or two things were different. Would I still be me? The me I know myself to be?
