Key for symbols used to mark who is speaking

~Other People~ Me {1} (2) [3]

~Why don’t you get some help? There are so many options out there, you have no excuse.~

~You’re just lazy. You’re just weak. You’re pathetic, you’re a freak.~

~Family is all you have when the dust settles. Friends are fair-weather. Family means unconditional Love. No judgment. Trust.~

(Don’t try to convince me otherwise, I have learned it firsthand. Don’t try to talk me out of it, you have no leg to stand.)

~Why don’t you go and talk to somebody? There are people that want to help.~

--Lies, deceit, fake sympathy.
Pretending to care. Fake sympathy at a cost.
What’s an hour going to do?--

{I give them thirty minutes and the next time you see me I’ll be in a little padded room, being hugged real tight by my jacket.}

(What do you know? What do you care?)

{Why are you yelling at me? Why are you staring at me?}

(You know what?)

--What?--

[Wake up!]

~Who are you talking to?~

(The only person that can help me is me.)

[The only person that can help us is you?]

**You know what you have to do.**

I am starting over again, multiple journals, notebooks, sketchbooks, that I had written in since I was 16 were lost and stupidly I did not make copies. So, I am trying to start writing and drawing again in an attempt to possibly remember some of them or at least give them new life by rewriting them now that I am older.
