The other day a girl I work with said,

"You don't look like you would be depressed, I mean, you're always so happy"

It's the weight of trying to be this picture perfect person everyone thinks you are pulls you so far down in a hole you can't get out of.

You hold back because you know you're stronger than that. You can't show weakness. Because once you're vulnerable people can use that against you.

So you smile. And joke.

But then , you're alone. Your thoughts consume you. Suffocating you until you run to the things that make you forget all your problems exist.

And the cycle continues.
