In the short dramatic monologue Runaway, TINA talks about her self-discovery based on her deep desire to find her true calling in life.
Tina: I always want to be somewhere else other than the place I find myself standing in. Since I was a little girl, I would always runaway with my imagination, visit other places that didn’t exist but were real to me. I’ve never been happy with my surroundings.
I’ve altered my path numerous times and yet still, I’m not comfortable with my environment.
I’ve been looking inside myself more lately and I think I’m beginning to recognize that it hasn’t really been so much about my environment. I am slowly beginning to realize it’s about who I am.
You see, I’ve been lost. I’ve never been fully grounded in anything and I think that my uneasiness comes from that place.
So now I’m reading all these self help books and watching motivational videos to gain some form of clarity in my mind and heart and be one with who I believe I am.
At the end of the day, I feel that the better I know what I want to give this life, the happier I will become.
