What Do They Matter?

They aren't worth telling. Other people have real problems. Mine sound like the rather pathetic whimpers of a coward.

How could I possibly understand what pain is? I am ashamed of my weakness. My feelings are self-absorbed and contrived. Even to myself, I appear to be a fake.

If these were the words of someone else, I know what I would say. I would tell them that everyone's pain is real and that we are all fallible. We all need support from others at some point or other. Don't be so hard on yourself kiddo.

However, I can't help how I personally feel.
