Part of being real with yourself is realizing and acknowledging that some people of whom you truly care about simply don’t care about you to that same extent.
I constantly feel like breaking down but I just smile and pretend I’m fine and it always works until I’m alone with my thoughts at two in the morning when my room is cold and my eyes are heavy and I desire someone’s warm arms wrapped around me while they breathe softly onto my skin, assuring me that everything’s fine. That’s when I’d believe it.
