There are some people, I’m kinda glad I’m not close with anymore.

Who hurt you so much that you started to hate yourself?

-Midnight thoughts (what made you so sad)

I didn’t need you, I picked you. And then you picked me back. And that’s like a promise.

-Margo (via John Green, Paper Towns.)

I find myself angry at the shallow empty behavior of people. I find myself hurt at the selfish and unreasonably cruel actions of the few. I find myself wanting to scream at them, is this who you are? is this how you choose to be? are these actions truly you?

and then I find myself questioning my own decisions. I find myself filled with doubt and insecurities. I find myself, having absorbed so much of the pain of others, unable to find my own release and now I am lashing out, cruel and unrecognizable.

I find that I can no longer laugh.

and then suddenly I realize that I cannot find myself at all.

You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people, but until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them.
