I am alone.

I’m not alone.

My heart hurts.

I have people that care.

It’s broken into so many pieces.

I have a community of people that care.

I’m scared.

It’s okay to be scared.

I am so completely alone.

I’m not alone.

I don’t know how to face the world.

I’ve made it through worse.

I hurt. The very core of me hurts.

Pain means you’re human.

I’m broken.

I will pick up the pieces.

I don’t know how to go on.

I will keep going.

My heart is broken.

My heart can heal.

I’m alone.

I’m not alone.
