    I really miss who I was.

    I was never this sad or down. I used to have lots of friends who cared about me, now it's just me, myself & I. I hate this.

    I went through a mentally

    and emotionally abusive and controlling relationship for a year and a half and finally got out of it and it opened my eyes to the world, how it works, and my place in it. I guess I miss the carefree, Innocent, trusting person I was before it.

    Ever since third grade,

    my personality went from outgoing to zero. I don't know whether it's because of the fear I was harboring at my math teacher that time, like the way she constantly humiliated and stabbed me with her self-confidence wrenching words. Or because of my mother's constant insults she...
