> Hi! My name is Stephanie, Stef, or Stephania whichever you prefer.:) Anyways, welcome to the world of 4's. I know exactly how you feel because I'am the same way. I'm 29 though, so I kinda have to start putting more practicality in my life-which I'm starting to do. But, I'am a "lost" person. I struggle between "society" and my feelings and my fantasy world as well. I know that there is a balance and that is what I'm working on. Yes, you are normal. We are normal. We are just people that in the end, will have experienced life like no other will ever know. It's because we feel and think so much, that we are able to really taste life. Our troubles come from this as well, so WE are the one's that have to learn how to handle it and control it. It is hard but I believe it is possible.
