I constantly wonder how my life looks in other people’s eyes. Do they think I have it easy? Do they think I have nothing going on for myself? Or are they fascinated with who I am? The thing is that no one will ever know my whole story. No one will ever know the things I’ve had to overcome. Not even my closest friends, not even my own family. The thing is that people are so quick to judge now a days. You only see a person from what they want and allow you to see. I always try to look as put together as if can and I guess that’s my way of hiding from the truth. It’s just that way, everyone will assume that everything in my life is okay, that I never go through anything. If only everyone knew how broken I am, and how I’m holding on for dear life on this one last strand that’s recently become very delicate. The truth is that no one really knows me. No one will ever know me and sometimes that scares me, because no one will ever know why I am the way I am.

My friend once told me “I don’t really trust anyone, I don’t really tell anyone anything.” At first I thought this was the saddest thing in the world, but then I realized it’s the rule to survival. If you never trust anyone, they can’t let you down, and you can’t be hurt. If you don’t tell anyone anything, they can’t silently judge you or even worse they can’t judge you out loud. Yeah, maybe I never see my friend overly happy about anything, but at the same time I’ve never seen her break down the way I have. I grew up thinking that when counselors told you, you can ‘speak up’ about your problems, that they would magically make your life okay. But it doesn’t work that way. There are just some pinnacles in life you need to face alone, whether you like it or not. Not everyone gets pass them, not everyone makes it to the other side unscathed and still happy. I guess I’ve also grown up seeing that. Life is never easy. But, you can’t quit. You can’t lose to life.
