I said I was fine, when really, I wasn't.

I said I could handle it even as I felt myself cracking.

I said I was strong when I'd never felt weaker.

I pretended to brush off every hurt while privately I agonized over them.

I said I forgave when really, I hadn't yet.

I said to 'forget it' even though I knew I was going to remember.


Essentially, I did everything I could to seem untouchable. I did everything in my power to prove that I couldn't be brought down (emotionally) by anything or anyone. It may not have been true, but I made every effort to make it look that way...I still do.
