Miles Carter

"Finding Comfort"

There’s a lot I don’t know
For instance, I never know what I want to order before I go eat
Even though I always end up getting what I got the last time
I know what I want out of life, but I’m not entirely sure how I get there
And I didn’t know I had anxiety until last year
And honestly I didn’t know there were words for a lot of the things I feel
I don’t know if I mean the things I say
Or if I say them because they mean something to you
And I’m afraid you do the same when you speak to me
There’s a lot I’m unsure about
But what’s been bothering me most, is I’m not sure in who I am
I have an idea of things I like, and things I don’t like
The kind of people I enjoy being around
And I have a pretty good idea of how people view me
But there’s this voice in my head
It's almost another person but still me
It asks questions like, “Are you doing this because you’re a good person? Or because you’ll be praised for being a good person?”
And that question sticks with me because It questions my own genuity
Am I the person I present myself to be?

You’re never really who you are to anyone except yourself
Perspective is inescapable
From other eyes, you will only ever be who you are in relation to them
And this is why I question my own character
There’s a reason it’s easy to sing in the shower
Why you can dance alone in your room even though you can’t dance
It’s easier to be you when no one's watching
Because when people are watching, then judgement comes into the mix
And often times because you fear being judged, you begin judging yourself
And by you I mean me, because I’m speaking to myself as well
That comfortability I find when I’m by myself is the comfortability I want when I’m around others
Not just comfort in where I am, but with who I am wherever I go
