    At school, even if I try talking nobody notices

    This Is So Freaking True For Me.

    EVERYONE ALWAYS USES ME!!! I've been told many times that being good is what matters most in this lifetime but I disagree with every single person who says that. Sometimes, I wish I had no feelings. I wish I was a selfish, greedy person who knew how to take advantage of people. I...
