    I cry. But I'm just tired I cut.

    But I've just had a long day I hate myself. But I'm fine, don't worry.

    I'm getting accused of **** I haven't done.

    Like really why I didn't do it but nobody believes me and I've never lied to them. Everyone wants me to get better but nobody will listen to me. I'm almost 100% sure I'm going to relapse again, no matter how much I try to hold myself back

    I often smile and cry on the inside.

    I have learned as a child that people or strangers aren't concerned about how you feel. At least most of the time. If I want help I either help myself or find it myself. I've learned to just smile. A person must create their own happiness. You must depend on yourself. Anything...

    Many times my feelings make me cry on the

    inside. But I have learned that I need to hide my feelings. Most people I've met could care less how anyone feels. I keep my feelings hidden. When I meet someone and they ask you how you are I just tell them fine and smile. They don't really want to know. That has just become a...
