• Family: You never do anything for anyone but yourself.
  • Me: Really? I pretend to be happy because I know you're stressed. I act like I'm fine so I don't bother you with my problems. I fight the suicidal tendencies and the thoughts dragging and slamming me down. I fake a smile so you don't know. Truth is, I don't give a shit about myself... But I pretend to for your sake.

I know they’re going to be tidal waves of missing you. I know that for the time being I’ll wonder how you’re doing and I’ll still look over at your house. But if there’s one thing you taught me it was to rely on myself through some tough shit. I’m sad you’ve moved away but I know this is for the better, for the both of us. I’m ready to start over once more.
