A different you: Being off on your own

by Aaron

It’s funny how different we can be when we’re off on our own.

Over the past several years, I’ve lived in Rochester, NY; Harrisburg, PA; Boston, MA; and Herndon, VA. In each place, I went there not knowing anyone. What I find most interesting about being on your own is how different you can be.

Back at home in New Jersey I have a personality that people know me by and acting outside of that personality can seem out of place. But when you go somewhere new where no one knows you, you’re more likely to do and try things that you normally wouldn’t. When my brother went to Ireland and Australia, there’s a different side of him I don’t normally see.

Being off on your own can let you break out of your shell. It’s the new you :)
