I’m convinced that people like me should not have children.
People like me put up guards, wear a cloak of good humor, and fall apart behind closed doors.
People like me fool others all the time, make them believe they are functional, rational, and determined, and then do something erratic.
People like me try not to be a burden, save their feelings for a later, more convenient hour, and then lock themselves in their rooms all evening.
People like me…well, we are just tired.
Just so tired of pretending.
