some days I'm so happy that I can feel my cheeks tender from my laughter. some days I feel so empty that my ribs ache from my loneliness.
I've always heard that there are people who feel everything.
I think that's me.
when i'm happy, I thrive. I love to be happy. I love being the girl who radiates happiness, who can make anyone laugh. I love to feel strong and kind and empathetic.
but the trouble with feeling is that you have to feel the negatives too.
when i'm sad, i'm numb. when I cry, I pour. when I feel lonely, it eats me up inside. when I over think, I sabotage my own happiness.
how do you turn it off?
how do I stop feeling everything?
