The world snubbed her out like a flame that was burning too brightly, disturbing their desire for the dark.
You see they were unsettled by her desire to be different, by her drive to chase her wildest wishes in her own way.
‘You are like a turtle,’ they sighed. ‘You live too much in your own world. It’s time to stop dreaming, you need to live in reality now. Time is ticking. It's time to grow up. It's time to come out of your shell.’
With a smirk on her face and graceful wit she replied...
'I value your opinion, I really do but my shell is my safe haven. How are you to know that the inside of my shell isn’t a good place to be?
I could have libraries full of love stories and lyrics, rainforests that reveal natures deepest secrets. Damn I could even have a luxury mansion with chandeliers shimmering in the natural sunlight and magnificent marble staircases fit for royalty. You'd respect me then wouldn't you?
So who are you tell me that I should join your world when I’m completely content in my own. Do not judge what you do not know. My mind is a beautiful place and I will not let you make me think being an introvert is a disgrace.’
With that the world fell speechless and the girl drifted back into her dreams, dancing as she disappeared from their dismay.
