    Wish I Could Be...

    But fact is, I can't. It's not with everyone. It's just with my family. Thing is, I can't tell my family anything about my real self. So it means I can't be honest with them about any aspect of my life for fear of being disowned. I can't be myself. And that means I have to lie...

    I Think People Are Naturall...

    I think people are naturally good and want to be honest, but there are simply times when you can't be.  Such as when you are asked a question where telling the truth would just hurt the other person.

    In the shower the water washes away all traces

    of the tears that fall down my face. The noise drowns out my sobbing. Nobody will know. Best not worry my family. Can you keep this a secret? I don't know what's wrong with me anymore.

    Every instinct is telling me to do that. But it's exactly what I can't do. Hearing how I feel is just going to push him further away. I can't stand it
