So how does it feel to be truly happy? Like, 'Happy from within' as they would say? Cause ever since I was a child I've considered myself to be a happy and positive person, despite the terrible things that happen. And I tell myself "Im just a strong, happy person." but day by day I'm realizing that I never really processed  any of the traumatic things that happened to me, never really acknowledged being hurt, used, and so on. .

One of the biggest contributors to my depression now is needing people.. I tend to always isolate myself when I need help but now I just really need that. I feel so dead inside, I feel scared and lonely, it feels strange being in my body, in my mind, I don't recognize myself and feel somewhat detached. 

I feel like a stranger to myself tbh..

It is so hard to live life when you are running from the thoughts in your own mind. if anybody would ever like to talk with me I am a good listener I know  what it is like to stumble around in the dark.
