    onto yourself. Seriously. EVERYONE has problems, whether they're spoken, seen, heard, hidden, shouted, written, drawn, or locked away. Many people are even great on putting on a facade, making it easy to believe you're "the only one" and "no one could possibly understand." It's...

    "Fvck My Life, Nobody Listens To Me"

    There's so much more to do than to always look at ourselves as victims and the rest of humanity, villains. The world doesn't owe us a good life, we owe the world compassion and care. We all have our issues, let's deal with them like grown ups.
