    Specially when I'm not.

    I wield my "I'm fine" like a shield, protecting my heart and my sanity, keeping the pain locked away in some secret location I never visit. Those of you who have been strong for too long, who have held back too many tears, who have woken up with drenched pillows or waited for...

    even though something is seriously wrong.

    I don't want people to worry about me. I have decided. when I'm gone. I don't want anyone to have to pay for my mistake.

    Im too stubborn to let other people help me.

    I dont want to be a burden. I wish i could do it myself. I know i cant do it myself, but i dont have anybody to tell... Exept my parents, but they never listen... Sometimes i wish the world made me feel important and loved. I feel ignored.

    There once was a little girl,

    who was taught her mother's mantra, or more so, drilled into her 6 year old mind... "do not tell." "Do not tell that I left you alone overnight, while I went off with a man to drink and do the things 'adults' do." "Do not tell you haven't eaten anything except bread with...

    That feeling when someone asks

    if you're okay and you nod saying you're fine when you're really not. You hold back a tear and swallow hard with that lump in your throat, wishing someone knew how you really felt.

    I actually cannot remember the last time

    that I was honestly fine. It's difficult to always be that person that people can lean on, especially when you have no one to lean on. Maybe if I continue saying it I'll speak it into existence.

    So many of us automatically reply I'm fine

    when asked how we are, even though we're not. Yet, when a friend who is obviously not "fine" says it to us, how many of us take the time to insist, to ask how are you really? How many of us care enough to tell that friend: "Come on, this is me you're talking to. What's wrong...

    It's easier to say you're fine

    rather than explain what's really going on to someone who really doesn't care.

    I have a love/hate relationship with the phrase

    "I'm fine." I say it when I mean it; I say it when I mean the opposite. Because, let's face it - when someone asks how I'm doing, it's not polite to say "Inside my head, a blood-curdling scream is drowning out my thoughts." So instead, I say "I'm fine."

    I don't know why I always say "I'm fine"

    even when I'm not. When people ask me if I'm fine, I don't tell them what's wrong, I always say I'm fine then when I get home I cry myself to sleep.

    I am going to run, it will not be far enough.

    I am going to laugh, it will be forced. I am going to let my mind wander, it will always choose you. I am going to hurt, in the shadows where none can see. I am breaking and I have not the strength nor the willpower to hold myself together.
