I say I want to be skinny yet I am always eating. I say I want good grades yet I procrastinate until it’s too late. I say I don’t want to be alone as I put my headphones in and never talk to anyone. I say I want to be a better and happier person as I sit here and count all the ways I hate myself.
"Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as an escape."
