    It's weird. I've always seen myself

    as a strong and independent person, but know I think about it, I'm actually so fragile with a really low self-esteem. My mask and facade was so good that I even fooled myself. That's quite sad.

    One Of Many

    My smile is one of many masks that I wear everyday. I think it is my most polite way to keep from showing people what I really think. People like it when you smile so I aim to please them.

    But I Wish You Could

    I never, ever created my mask of smiles. I never wanted that, as much as it has helped repair some things that were broken, when I was broken and open... not faking my smiles, I never wanted to play this game of happiness pretend. It's all so fake, and I feel like a clown...

    The Pain Is Too Big For Me To Handle.

    I have been burying it all my life. People hide it for different reasons......I hide it from myself. If I ever let it out the flood gates would open and I think it would over whelm me. I would then be so depressed I would not be able to dig myself out of the pit I was in. The...

    Thing Is Though...

    It's a lot easier when no one around you cares enough to try and dig deeper.Let's face it. No matter how good we may be at faking it if someone really tried. Really wanted to get underneath our skins, they could do it.
