All my life I’ve felt like something was wrong with me. I’ve felt so alone and so so sad. I try to act like criticism, failure and rejection don’t hurt me. I bottle my emotions till the explode and I feel like I can’t breathe. I’ve been called lazy more times than I can count, I feel like my parents are always disappointed in me, like they love my siblings more than me. I can’t even express my pain properly. If I even try to tell people what’s going on my words get jumbled up and don’t match what I mean, and they misunderstand. I just need to talk to someone who understands me.
