I wish you understood

You don’t understand, and I wish you would.

You don’t understand what I feel, or why I feel it. You don’t understand who I am, or why I’m like it. You don’t know anything about me besides your own opinion.

I have faced more heartache in the last ten years than I thought humanly possible. You don’t understand what I mean when I say my heart will never be fixed. I know more about loss than I do being loved.

You don’t understand how deeply I feel.

I have spent the last five years wishing not to be here, and having to fight myself. You don’t understand that I’m not just having a down day. It’s a down life.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
