    I chose invisible because I can be quite introverted and sometimes just want to disappear into my own world without the energy of socialising with others. I think invisibility would be good as on bad days I can still go out and do stuff without the worry of bumping into someone when my energy is low. Also I could hop on a plane for free and travel anywhere in the world if I ever fancy a holiday :) I think that would be fun

    @Friendlyneighbour Thanks so much for your response!

    That makes complete sense and I empathise a lot with your low energy around socialising with others consistently. Haha I love the plane part! This has been really insightful, thank you so so much for replying! It sounds like a really logical and supportive choice!

    Lots of awesome, popular choices - I'm going to go for something a bit different. I'd love to have the power of knowing what music everyone likes. Music is important for me to bond with people, plus it'd make karaoke sessions and randomly breaking out into song even more fun :D

    @Azziman That's really interesting! I understand what you mean, music is an incredible resource! That's so wonderful to hear! Thank you so much for sharing with us, this has been super insightful! :)

    Definitely invisible because I feel like it opens doors and creates opportunities, where none seemed to exist before. When we are unseen, we have an enormous advantage in doing things we wish or need to do. Also, I'd like to have a break from the social life, I'd like to be on my own for sometime. Oh yeah, and I'd like to hear all the backbiting on me haha

    @zaynab_5 That's really insightful thank you so much for sharing. Being invisible definitely opens up a variety of different opportunities not available any other way. I definitely agree with you about the social life thing, you can just nip to the shops and avoid others when you're feeling a bit depleted mentally and emotionally.

    @LorryTruck I agree that certain parts of life would be a little easier to cope with if we could will ourselves to be invisible. I just wanted to check and ask if you're okay?

    @Brookee, I'd be invisible cause then my parents wouldn't know I was there and everyone at school would stop staring at me as if I was an alien

    @LorryTruck If you ever need to talk, don't hesitate to reach out, sending you a lot of love <3

    I think I would like to be able to go into book, it would just be amazing to be able to enter fictional worlds that you love when things in real life get too much!

    @charlieboyz I'm so sorry that everyone treats you like an alien, that's completely unfair, it's mainly ignorance to what you're going through though, so please know this isn't a reflection upon you as an individual!!
