    Do They Have Any Idea?

    While a part of me is glad that they don't, it hurts even more to know that they don't know enough about me that I am suffering. I used to leave hints around the house, books on self-harm and depression, but they either ignored it or didn't get the hint.

    I keep it from them, they have their own worlds and prefer to stay that way. I know they all have issues and just showing mine would make it worse. I used to though, that's how I learned. They would avoid the issues and didn't want to talk about it. That's when I met my friend...
