I get very upset when a friendship starts to fade, when someone cares less about me or doesn’t want to spend time with me. I know I should focus on the people who do love and care about me, yet I let the few that don’t get under my skin.
I know what it’s like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can’t. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside.
