"Do you know what it's like to hate yourself?" He asked
"I do." She responded
"I doubt it." He replied "What reason do you even have to hate yourself?"
"Easy." She said "I hate myself because I know how many people have it so much worse, and yet the pain from hating myself is so much better than the numbness of not feeling anything at all."
Shocked he looked over at the girl and for the first time he saw the pain in her smile, the emptiness in her eyes, and the cracks in her facade.
