How does it feel to be alone? How does it feel to feel like there isn’t anyone who cares about you? These are all things I thought I would never have to know. If I knew this were to happen, I would have taken a class on how to avoid it. How does it feel to not be allowed in anyone’s house? Even your best friend who is basically your sister. How does it feel to be so bored that your popcorn ceiling seems insanely interesting? How does it feel to feel like you are the last person you want to see in the mirror, because you have been seeing that person every day in a little digital box? How does it feel to see only bad news when you look at the TV?
Now I know. Now I can grow from it. It’s only up from here.
