What if I am staying up late because it is the only time I can really be me and not who I think everyone wants me to be?

@sikkdays "What do I gain from being awake when everyone else is asleep? Peace and quiet. There are no expectations to meet and no one to disappoint. Is the insomniac Chris the real me? Without the fear, anxiety and shame, I can just breath and relax."

This is exactly why I am a night owl.

@sikkdays As a kid I would stay up late because it was the only time away from tutors and parents and expectations.

It's entirely possible.

Do you feel happy or at peace when you stay up and are by yourself?
