I’ve finally found it in a much smaller place than expected. Where does the “cool crowd” come from? The search started when I was barely able to walk and has continued till the steps were harder to walk. Yet the secret came out when I least expected it to during this hideous Coronavirus period. For I soon discovered that it wasn’t the crowd that was cool but the individual inside it. Cool was a state of mind where one was truly able to hold their own identity with confidence and not worry what the world around them might think. It was a self-assurance that caused the crowd to form even if really was just one. The “cool crowd” didn’t go to an event but made it an event by being there in their own skin. The “Cool Crowd” I might have joined the party without even taking a drink.
