Do you remember the shit that happened to you as a child that makes you not wanna trust people as an adult? […] You’re lucky, because you can get on with your fucking life and you’re not dogged down by these horrible, oppressive childhood memories, and you know, you stand a chance of being a normal, productive person. […] You know, like, I remember things, and then, like, I think “Is this true? Did this stuff really happen, or am I making it up?” Because, you know, the older I get, things - the memory sort of becomes a little blurry, and then, it’s like, I can’t, I don’t know, but you just don’t know the truth anymore.
I am not the sad girl anymore. No, I am more than that. I am strong and caring. I am both confident and insecure. I am simultaneously one of the kindest and meanest people you will ever meet. I am ugly, I am beautiful, and I am bursting with fire. I am home to strange and brilliant thoughts. I am heavily flawed and I am still good enough. I am so much, and I will never allow myself to be reduced to a single word again. Even when I am sad, I am still so much more. I am not the sad girl anymore. No, I am everything.
You lost all interest in this world. You were disappointed and discouraged, and lost interest in everything. So you abandoned your physical body. You went to a world apart and you’re living a different kind of life there. In a world that’s inside you.

Sometimes, I sit alone under the stars and think of the galaxies inside my heart, and truly wonder if anyone will ever want to make sense of all that I am.

Listen to me. I’m shy. I’m not stupid. I can’t meet people’s eyes. I don’t know if you understand what that’s like. There’s a whole world going on around me, I’m aware of that. It’s not because I don’t want to look at you. It’s that I don’t want to be seen.

I used to think that I could never lose anyone if I photographed them enough. In fact, my pictures show me how much I’ve lost

I get way too sensitive when I get attached to someone. I can detect the slightest change in the tone of their voice, and suddenly I’m spending all day trying to figure out what I did wrong.

What’s wrong? Where do I begin? I don’t even know anymore. Nothing seems to be going right and nobody understands me. I feel like I’m stupid at school. I feel like my importance is slowly disappearing from my friends. I feel like a disappointment to my parents. I feel so unattractive. When I find someone I’m interested in, it’s like I don’t mean shit to them. I care too much about the people that couldn’t give a fuck about me. I’m just so tired. I feel like I can’t do anything right. What’s wrong? Maybe it’s the fact that I’m even alive. Nobody notices. Nobody cares.
He looked at me like I was crazy. Most of my lovers do, and that’s partly why they love me, and partly why they leave.

She says nothing at all, but simply stares upward into the dark sky and watches, with sad eyes, the slow dance of the infinite stars.

Nothing had changed. I was the stupid one again. I was the girl who never understood who she was to people.

I was as hollow and empty as the spaces between stars.
