I am so sick of being perfect. The perfect friend, the perfect daughter. It becomes so hard to keep up the image. It's hard when you realize that your parents can't help. Your friends don't know what to say. And it's the worst when you realize that everything that is going wrong is because you wanted it to. That saying, "outside I'm smiling but in my head I'm screaming" Oh, the irony. Sometimes I just want out.

When I was 16, I attempted suicide. I couldn't keep pretending I was: OK, smart, together. After, I let it go, and stopped trying to prove myself. I had a much better life after that. Self acceptance is the key. Screw your image. Enjoy the life you should be having.

Take a break. Sometimes you just gotta get away.

I know how you feel. It may not be comforting, but you should know you're not alone
