I think it’s really important to not force things. If it works it works. If it doesn’t it doesn’t. You can’t make someone treat you how you should be. You can’t make someone care about you the way they should.
Ultimately when someone is really important to you, when you really love and care about them you do everything you can to make them see it.
In my experience I’ve been on both sides.
I’ve had friends who really wanted to be close to me and really wanted a good friendship. But I wasn’t there. I wasn’t as in it as they were. It’s sad because someone can do all the right things. They can be giving, kind, funny and sweet but if our minds aren’t on the same wavelength there’s nothing solid there. There’s always gonna be trouble.
I also been on the other side. Being that friend. Always looking out for the person, wanting to do everything, being giving, kind and sweet. Putting that friend above everyone else. But it wasn’t there. I kept trying, wishing and begging but it wasn’t there.
A time will come when you realize you have to let go. You’ll find new friends, you’ll have new experiences and new stories. Why bear the heavy weight of sadness, why continue to hurt yourself or the other person?
Letting go isn’t the same as not caring.
Is it caring more?
You’re caring for the person you’re unintentionally hurting
You’re caring for yourself
I wrote this in my English class when I was 14. I think we were assigned to write a poem as someone else or maybe a fictional character.
So naturally I chose to write Mickey Mouses suicide note. Ya know like any normal child would.
Suicide note #16
To whom it may concern,
As you read this letter
I will no longer be alive
You think you know me
You think you loved me
But really you just scarred me
Like a match to the skin
You burned me
Caged like an animal
Segregated from the world
It doesn’t hurt that you were evil
What hurts is
I have thoughts and opinions and I’m not holding them back anymore.
Not gonna be sorry for what I think.
Don’t use your phone and actually experience something for once instead of documenting it to make yourself feel like your life has meaning.

100% of people who tell you you’re too sensitive are saying it because they don’t want to be held responsible for your reaction when they mistreat you
This is too relevant.
Wise friend (directed towards me)
It’s nice talking to people who you know actually want to talk to you.
