    someone. Just don't try to force an overnight recovery. It may take time.

    Even when I'm Happy I feel it inside me.

    The pain that won't go away. It is in me, hiding, waiting. I'm like a prisoner to my own pain. I can't escape it. One wrong move, one rude comment, staying in my thoughts for just a moment too long and it's over I've lost the fight again today. The Pain Wins. I Guess Tomorrow Is...

    Growing up with insecurities,

    feeling like the world would be a bit better without me, I definitely know what it feels like to hurt inside. I'm a master at seeming fine on the outside, but feeling horrible on the inside.

    Hurting Because Of Others

    Constantly. It's like my whole life as been like this, at least of what I can remember. Prior to about 4th grade/10 years old it wasn't so bad. But once I became so much more aware it seems, at least to me, that people go out of their way to hurt me. I think I am a good person...
