“I’m Great” – Monologue

Jack is hiding behind a facade and has no one at the moment he feels like he can open up to. So he is recording, on a laptop, himself talking to show to the only person he can talk to at a later time. He soon realizes that he doesn’t care for anyone so he just talks to himself in confusion and frustration.

Jack: (Opens laptop) Hey, you are probably busy cause you know, you’re half-way across the world. I tried calling you earlier but I guess you missed it. I just wanted to see how you’re doing? I really miss you. You’re legit the only person to call or message me in forever. I’m sorry I haven’t gotten back to you. I didn’t know what to say until now. I need you, I need anyone. Cause I feel like crying right now, and I can’t think of anyone else I can cry to. But I don’t want to bother you so I’m just… I just need to let it out so I might not even show you this. Isn’t that crazy, no one. I can’t think of a single person, none of my friends, not my family, a stranger, or anyone on this side of the planet that I feel like I can talk to. It’s funny, you know. I have everything I want. I’m free to do what I want. I finally have time, I finally have a day to have some fun or hang out with my friends which I always want to do because I never have time to spend with them. But now that I do, I don’t want to. They’re annoying to me, my bestest friends. I don’t even want to see them. It’s not like they did anything wrong, but I just don’t care for them. I don’t know what happened. Who knows, if you were here, maybe I wouldn’t care for you either. 

What am I doing? I’m talking to no one. (Closes laptop) No one can hear me. I swear I used to be so happy, I loved everyone and everything. What happened? Why can’t I feel anything?

(Opens laptop) Hey, you’re probably busy cause well, you’re halfway across the world. Just wanted to let you know that I miss you and I hope you’re having a good time. Sorry I missed your call. Don’t worry about me, I’m great. (Closes laptop)
