    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.

    My mother literally just told me how much I

    suck at everything. She told me how ugly I am. She told me how dumb I am. She told me how unathletic I am. She told me how much of a loser I am. She thinks anyone who isn't in the popular group is weird, so me and my (few) friends are weird. She thinks I have adhd because im so...

    Waiting In The Distance

    I'm still waiting. Waiting for someone to be okay with me just being me. Waiting for someone to not care that I'm not perfect. Whenever someone's feeling down about a lack of friendship, a relationship, or the fact that life isn't going exactly as planned, the response is always...
