    How do you ask for help

    when you know you are broken beyond repair? It just doesn't seem that there is a way to 'heal' anymore. Just have to endure the pain and bottle it up

    Don't think about whats bad in the world,

    stop using things and make everything around you better in whatever way possible, not by force just like "I'm upset that my car has no engine." "Hey I have a bicycle, and a chainsaw, we could make the pedals and the chainsaw chain and .......... heres a carmoterbike thing!"
