‘’I mean, you know your feelings so well and it can be really intimidating to other people.’’

‘’Yeah, and it is. And at the same time I know other people’s feelings too. It’s like, I know what your feelings are. I know what and where they come from. I know why you act the way you do when you’re not yourself. If there’s one quality I have that I’m proud of it would be that I understand people. And at the same time, you know, that’s what intimidates people. I know what you feel, and why you’re feeling it because I put two and two together and I make it four. But then I’m like ‘’hey, there’s a six and a nine over there and they’re also part of the equation’’. So what happens is I end up with a grand total of nineteen and I’ll present it to you, and you’ll be like ‘’fuck, you got me’’. There’s no escaping me, and I guess that scares people. You know, I think people stopped believing there’s still people around that genuinely want to know about their feelings and I enjoy that because I catch people off guard. I’ll expose your deepest fears and flaws and you’ll probably get scared, and you’ll most likely want to run. But the truth is; I’m not here to abuse those flaws and fears. I’m here to tell you that you can work on them, and that you can grow from them. Most of the time though people just run, and I’ll never understand why it scares people when someone actually, maybe even for once in their lives, understands them. I’m fine with that though. you need to run away from yourself? Then run. I hope those people, even strangers, realize that if they come back, as intimidating as I am, I will still be here. I want people to understand that it’s okay to be scared.’’
