As she looked in the mirror, Sarah couldn’t help but feel a sense of despair wash over her. She had always been an outcast, struggling to fit in with her peers and find her place in the world. But lately, she had been feeling inadequate.
“For if they knew the truth, they would want nothing to do with a soul as damaged and broken as hers,” she thought.
Sarah had always struggled with anxiety and depression, and it seemed like no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t shake the feeling that she wasn’t good enough. She had always been told that she was intelligent and capable, but she couldn’t help but feel like a fraud.
One day, after a challenging day at school, Sarah decided she had had enough. She couldn’t take the constant feelings of inadequacy and the fear that she would never truly belong. She grabbed her backpack and stormed out of her house, determined to put as much distance between herself and her old life as possible.
As she walked, Sarah couldn’t help but feel a sense of freedom wash over her. She felt like she had a choice for the first time in a long time. She could keep walking and leave everything behind, or she could turn back and try to face her problems head-on.
