Recovery Challenge: Day One
To General Self Loathing;
I know we’ve always been tight. I’ve never really liked myself, and I thought I had no reason too. You were my only friend, starting as early as second grade. No one that young should have to feel that useless, that pathetic, that paranoid. I didn’t make friends not because I didn’t want to, but because I was afraid they’d have hated me as much as I did. I took comfort in this constant, that at least one person in my life had the decency to be honest.
But I’m breaking up with you. You have left me sitting in a pit I dug and telling myself that I deserve it. That is unacceptable. I’m leaving you for friends I will not be paranoid of loosing and the ability to be myself. I haven’t tried that one in a while, but I think I will soon. For those days where I could have been on the monkey bars and laughing and shouting and making friends and being a kid, I am leaving you in the dust.
The girl whose life you can’t ruin anymore.
