    The mind fails to articulate what the heart

    feels. And that's why we find ourselves in a situation where we can't explain what we feel. Sometimes, it's fine to withdraw back from everything and shut our the world. You're your own remedy.

    You can't impress everyone at the same time

    and in the end you'll be the one that has to live with yourself. Plus, if people don't want to be around you for who you are, then they'll be the one missing out on an awesome unique individual :P
