    I haven't written anything on here in a long

    time, I guess until this point I've been okay. No that's a lie I've been telling myself I'm okay but I know really I need help. I've never felt so low, I'm convinced this is all my fault but at the same time I don't know what I've done. I have no one at all to talk too, not that...

    No one understands how much pain a person can

    I am not my mistakes,

    not my unsaid apologies. I am not my past. I forget this, all the time. I need to engrain into my head that I am made of lovely skin and strong bones- not past mistakes and regrets. I'm human.
