    I thought to myself, I'll hear people's problems and help them out because it's what I like to do. Then, one day, a man said to me, "You'll be hearing others' problems, but who will be willing to hear yours?" I said, "No one, because I suffer in silence. Until I've had enough...

    I am too considerate,

    I hate burdening people emotionally, financially etc so I just keep things bottled up, I keep things from my parents, from everyone, sometimes I wish I could share my pain but I hate being a burden so I think this is the root of it all
