  • i'm scared.
    sometimes i'm so scared it makes me shake. while writing this i can fell heat coming to my eyes as the tears start to well up. there is something wrong with me. i know that. but i'm still so scared.
    this is small compared to other things going on in life but every time, when i am all alone, i get scared. i feel a weight pulling down my shoulders so i slouch. i feel my hands start to get heavy as i type. almost as heavy as my eyelids. if i blink, tears fall. i'm scared and there is nothing i can do about it. i'm so selfish. i should be thinking of other people who are in a bad place right now, and i do for a little bit. but then i go back to thinking about myself.
    i'm cold.
