I Have Lots On My Mind

    I'm stressing out. My family can barely afford

    to buy food anymore. I haven't bought any new clothes in 3 years, I'm constantly paranoid someone is going to suddenly die, and the store me and my family runs is going to close within the next two years. Just thinking about it makes my chest ache intensify.

    Being alone seems easier

    as well as painful. But in being alone, I can't emotionally or mentally harm anyone. I'm too much of a perfectionist.. And now with this heavy apathy I dwell that I should just stay alone..
