    I don't want to bring anyone down,

    and sometimes, hiding it works well for me. Sometimes.

    I don't like to tell my friends

    that much because I feel like it's not their problem, only mine.... And that's true, yet I try so much to help them through anything.

    My friends and most people knows

    that I'm this girl who never fails to laugh and just smile at everything, like I don't even get angry and doesn't have any problems. This is because I've always been good in concealing my feelings. I tend to just keep everything to myself because I don't know any person who I...

    I Often Hide Emotions

    When I'm around my parents, my family, I pretty much never show how I really feel. It's become a habit over the years, I've gotten so used to it. No matter how depressed or sad I'm feeling, I'll mostly surpress it and try to not show it to them. Cause if they notice, they'll...

    I get so disgusted with people

    who tell me to smile and be happy no matter what, smile and the universe will smile with you, the more you smile the easier it is to smile. Those people do not understand depression. Such sayings are insulting to people in depression. GET IT THROUGH YOUR TINY, SHALLOW MINDS YOU...

    November is the hardest month of the year

    for me, but I'm slowly building my life around the loss, and fact that you're no longer here. I miss you so much, but I smile through my tears because you are no longer in pain. You're not suffering anymore, and I'm grateful for the time we had, Daddy. Love, your babygirl.
