    Nope

    I Am My Own Worst Enemy

    Sure, there's all this pressure from peers, magazines, the media in general. But what are you supposed to do if you're harshest critic is yourself? No, I don't think I will ever be good enough for anyone else, that's been made obvious for the last 18 years. But it's even harder...

    Its not that I am not good for anything, its more like, I won't be good for anyone more than anything. I mean, I do things well sometimes and everything, however, I feel like its never going to be good enough for anyone. BroknWings

    Truth

    The truth always hurts no matter how much you hide it. It always shows in your eyes. All the chill runs through your heart. You complain it's a lie but deep down you know that their right. Deep down your afraid it's the truth. Your afraid that they know something you don't.
