I Know.

I know how you feel.
I've been there before.
It's like you are on the edge and you know you are going to fall but there is nothing you can do to stop it.
There is no one you can turn to because no one cares.
Family only makes it worse and friends just don't understand.
Then you get to that point where you don't want to have anything to do with anyone.
You have been through so much that you don't want to put yourself through it again.
So you lock yourself away and your heart and throw the key away.
You live everyday like a ghost, just roaming around, unwanted and undetected.
Then you start to break down with emotion.
Everything you had been holding in that whole time comes pouring out like a waterfall, with so much force it's like an explosion.
After the dust settles and your vision clears, you begin to realize what's going on around you.
You find that you are stronger than you thought and that you are capable of doing anything as long as you set your mind to it. You also begin to see what's really important to you.
You can see the difference between needs and wants.
You begin to not care what other's think of you.
You aren't going to change for anyone.
They can either have you for you or not have you at all.
People are still going to judge you but you don't acknowledge them.
They can think whatever they want because you know who you are and they don't.
In the end you realize that you lost a lot if people in your life but you also realize who your true friends are.
If they stood by you the whole time you were struggling then they will stand by you through anything.
They are the people that you don't want to push away.
They are the people you can depend on being there for you when you really need them.
Now you walk around with your head held high because you know you can survive anything.
