To be a lostboy is to be an accidental paradox.
Lostboys are their own harshest critics and loudest supporters – they seem confident but work overtime to quiet their insecurities. They calm their chronic dissatisfaction through relentless self-reflection.
Lostboys are dreamers, navigating their day to day with their feet on the ground, but their heads elsewhere. They’re the extroverted introverts, surrounded by people but hanging out in their minds.
A lostboy is a pessimistic optimist - always hopeful for better days, yet easily triggered by external negativity.
