I get that the face you present to the world is not necessarily the way you always feel. I understand that you don’t want the world to pity you. And I also understand that sometimes it is just too much to put on a happy face for the world. Sometimes the circumstances are too overwhelming and too scary to overcome. I get it, because I have been there and I will be there again. And I know that we will make it through this. It is important to have people around you who you can be real with. Trust your friends, and if it turns out that you put your trust in the wrong people, forgive them and yourself, and move on to find people you can trust. This is not easy, and it is worth it.
