    But It Breaks My Heart

    I'm going to do by best to speak literally here, but I'm not very good at it. So here it goes: I help people, it's what I do. I'm a kind, caring person and I think about the people I help out before helping out myself. It is my biggest strength, yet it is my strongest...

    pushing people away felt easier.

    i dont have to rely on anyone, burden anyone with my quirks, flaws and problems. It also disables people from leaving me, abandoning me and turning their backs on me. and anyways, i deserve to be alone.

    From My Parents

    I try as hard as I can to spend as little time with them as possible. They know little about me at all, even though we live in the same house. I think it's because I'm angry at them. I'm having trouble forgiving them for all that they've done. My dad is always so critical of me...
