August 5 - In My Own Words
– Sylvia Plath
Yes- it would have been easier to read those words, allow myself to surrender to my memories, cry, and turn over to find sleep, but who is that going to ease? Certainly not me. Not the people around me wondering why I need to read Moody Cow again tonight. And not even the people who KNOW how I'm feeling today because they feel the same.
So with that I decided to open up (to a certain extent) hoping to remind other people to be sensitive and kind. And remember that even after 14 years... or 5 1/2 years...or 26, this shit is hard. And our experiences as very young, impressionable people shape who we are today more than if we were mature adults. Not only should we embrace that to make ourselves stronger, but we should understand that to support each other.
