I started weeping (literally) when I read, “Right now the focus needs to be on you.” First, I was just reading from curiosity, then it was more like an interesting story, then I wanted to hear your answer. Suddenly, I found something going weak inside, and then it broke. I just can’t stop the tears. My story is different but I got (get) the same alienation and resulting loneliness — and then a hard bitterness. No one suspects as I hide it behind a sweet kind smile and laugh. I can’t get close to anyone anymore.
