Random Musings on Self-Love
Megan Starks

You really get it. We didn’t take drugs to get high. But we didn’t like who we were and were scared to death someone might see that. For some reason I always thought that all these people who said they were my friends would not like me anymore if they really knew me.

I never took drugs to get high. I took them to cover the terrible pain I was in. I took them to be someone else. I had such low self esteem.

That pain is gone and now it’s just me, take it or leave it. And it’s funny, no one has run screaming for the door.

Yeah, you really get it.
