No Husband, No Children

In this drama monologue, Tiffany talks to her friend about being on the right path in her life.

Tiffany: Another day of invisibility.  I don’t exist for me anymore…I don’t think I ever truly have…everything is about my husband, my children…

There is no me.

That’s not the problem, however…I imagine that even if I had the time, for example, let’s say I had no husband, no children; would I be on some inner path to happiness?

I have to be honest with myself, I don’t think I would be…in some peaceful place.  On some powerful journey of significance.  No.  I think that all this time I’ve been imagining it, I’ve been lying to myself.  An escape; to make myself believe that there’s some happier piece of me that should exist.  No.

I didn’t know what I wanted before I met Dan..maybe I didn’t have enough time to iron out my wants…I wanted him, yes, but I never had any damn idea as to what I wanted for me.  Just me.

The question is if I will ever find me.  I don’t even know how or where to begin.  I don’t even know if I should.  I don’t even know if I really want to anymore.
