    Do You Know How It Feels When You Don't Even Fit Into Your Own Skin...?

    After my supposed best friend for life cut me out of her life recently, I'm not going to lie, it messed me up big time. Whenever I am surrounded by my friends, I feel even more alone than when I actually am by myself. I feel empty inside and I hate it. I don't know who to...
