    What More Can I Ask For?

    Things I Need To Repeat.

    Don't cut. Don't relapse. It's okay. Everything will be fine. She'll stay. Your mom will care one day. They'll stop talking bad about you. They'll stop lying to you. Your friends will be there. Don't give up again. Breathe. Youre okay.
