When I was 7
I was told a ghost story. I got scared and started crying. All the other kids were laughing at me for being weak
When I was 12
We were watching the famous movie, "The Notebook". I cried at the last scene, which reminded me of my grandparents. My classmates were laughing at me for being weak.
When I was 14
I got a bad grade in one of my exams. I cried since I thought my parents will be disappointed in me. My friends were laughing at me for being weak.
And now, I am 17
My mental health isn't at it's best. I cry every night, all alone, without any word to anyone. Because I don't want to be known as "weak"
