    When I was little I would eat a bag of chips.

    When I was finished I wouldn't throw the bag away because I thought It would be sad so I had a bag in my pocket the whole day.

    I Cant Help But Feel Sorry For Everything

    I am the type of person that cant shake the feeling that inanimate objects have feelings. Its everything in my life all the time. I wish it could go away, I cry because I don't want something to feel like I don't like it anymore because I'm giving it away. Its consumed me.
