He was sick of false appreciation. While people genuinely appreciated him but only he knew he did not deserve it. He knew he made it all up to gain respect of people around. Only he knew how shallow he was. Only he knew he needed to revisit his motives. There was stress inside. And so, he locked himself up; in his own world and thoughts. Cleaned his motives and stopped pretending. Rediscovered his real self. Now he doesn’t have many people flocking around him. But he found someone who loves him. He himself.
