You think building walls around empty feelings will create strong foundations. You’re wrong. Trying to look okay to the world will not make you okay on the inside.
Throw down your work tools and pick yourself up off the ground. If you ignore the dark feeling, like a toothache, the entire façade will implode. The taste of failure will be like ash on your tongue.
Shout out to the assholes who have made it difficult for me to want to like new boys as anything more than casual.
