I hate telling you my issues.
I hate breaking down in front of you.
I hate having to confess my pathetic little habits to get told

that I'm beautiful,
that I'm a great person,
and that everything's going to be okay.

I hate being told the same thing everytime,
and not being strong enough to believe
that it's entirely true.

I hate having to be reassured constantly
that I'm not doing anything wrong,
that I'm worrying for nothing,
that despite my anxieties
you still accept me,
you still love me,
and that you're proud of me.

I don't want to bother you.
I don't want to burden you.
I don't want to scare you off.

So I'll hide.
I'll hide behind a mask.

Now you know why I'm always 'fine',
and why I'm always tired.
It might just be better if I keep my mouth shut.

i feel this way sometimes. the reason why i don't open up (one of my friend asked me that one day) because there are some issues i hate to talk about, my weakness, my life. i don't want anyone to know about my issues. but when that stress build up in me and i couldn't take it anymore, i break down in public. at that lowest point of my life i feel so pathetic, i asked myself why i couldn't be like other people who, like, has no problems and they always seem so successful in whatever they do.

I understand this feeling very well. Sometimes I try to explain my issues to my mom and she'll come back with "But you're such a smart person, blah blah blah." Like, my issues have nothing to do with my intelligence.
