    I'm just done, all right? Now I'm a nice person. I'm not unscrupulous or anything, but I'm just done. Why the hell do I have to be perfect for people? I wanna be ME. Unfortunately I STILL can't be me because of my consideration for others. If I think someone has said something...

    Everyone says its ok to be imperfect

    when they judge you behind your back for being imperfect. They say that it will all go away when it won't. They say it will all stop once things get better. They say the darkness will go away once you turn on the light. No, it won't.

    Exactly that. It's been so long. The last time I remembered being truly myself, not caring what people think, carrying on with my life without a care in the world, loving my imperfections no matter what. I realized that it's not only been so long, but too long, since I was...
