Reality Sucks.

It sucks, doesn't it? To feel so out of place in a world with 7 billion people. You have this idea of how life is supposed to be. You're supposed to be surrounded by people who will make you tell them what's really wrong when you say, "I'm fine." You're supposed to have this close family that's impossible to break apart.Those movies you see where the bad guys are ruined, you finally get the guy/girl of your dreams, and everyone goes home happy should be movies based on your life, not just fantasies. Bad days are supposed to exist only in nightmares, and dreams are supposed to be a living reality. But the real world doesn't live up to this picture you keep in the back of your mind, and it makes you wonder what it is really that you're even sticking around for anymore.

"what it is really that you're even sticking around for anymore?"

I swear I've asked that question a lot in the last few years...

Sometimes I wish I could find girls like you and make rounds teleporting to them just to embrace them so I could feel emotional relief as well

Life never works the way we want. That's why people become strong. Life throws them down, but they find a way to get back up, always. We are stronger than we give ourselves credit for.

Oh, I agree 100%. There's no denying that we're a lot stronger than what we tell ourselves. But you can't help but sometimes let those little thoughts like these run through your mind. Doesn't mean you'll act upon how reality is, but it does make you think about how things are sometimes.

You speak those words add if your reading my mind. It really is a feeling of hopelessness. I live like this story every day.

Sorry to hear that. I hope things work out better for you soon.

It's sad to see such a young beautiful girl such as yourself write something like this from what can only come from experience. I'm sorry that you are going through it and appreciate the kind words.
