I cannot remember the last time I was happy. I cannot remember the last time I woke up and didn’t immediately want to crawl back under the covers and sleep the day away. I cannot remember the last time I had a good day. I cannot remember when the last time I made someone laugh and not just because I accidently said something stupid. I cannot remember the last time I didn’t have a stupid guy on my mind that didn’t give a crap about me. I cannot remember the last time I felt loved.

But I can remember what drove me to be like this. Maybe it was the quick but hurtful comments made by family members. Maybe it was being cheated on and used by multiple boys. Maybe it was the “funny” pokes at my belly fat from friends, without them knowing it took days to convince myself to wear this shirt. Maybe it was the countless hours of school work that got me nowhere but failing grades and tears in my textbook. Maybe it was getting my heart broken. Maybe it was just my time to not be happy anymore.

But I can also remember what use to make me happy. Flowers, walking, the blue sky, driving around with friends, sleepovers, getting kissed on my forehead by my crush, feeling loved, my animals, school, taking pictures, friends, family, my crush looking at me in the eyes. I use to just be happy in general.

What happened?

I grew up and realized the truth.

That not everybody is meant to be happy.
