This is just the beginning of a short story about my life. Any feedback about how I am writing or to make it better would be much appreciated

“I’m Okay (Not Really) I Swear”

 

My life was perfect for so long I almost forgot what it was like to be upset. The key word in that sentence is “was”. It's crazy how things can just change so fast. One moment you’re living life and the next you can’t wait for it to be over. I’m not saying I want to end my life or anything like that. All I’m trying to say is everyone has that one thing in their life that they are either ashamed of or just not happy with. Well for certain people it’s the opposite, they have everything against them and they grasp onto that one good thing that’s keeping them together. That’s me. Which one are you? How do you really know for sure?  I know I have so many people in my life I can talk to about my problems but they’ll never know that it's almost impossible for me, I’ve shared very deep things with a select few people and then have my trust destroyed. Sure you can have some bad days but I can guarantee that someone lives life going through so much worse. I go day by day listening to everyone else’s problems and observing how they go about life. I always try and make everyone I meet happy or just make sure they’re okay. Those who don’t know me all too well would think that I’m the happiest person. I go through my day with a constant smile and attitude to match. It's all a front, a shield per say. It's so much easier than opening up to someone. I'd rather bottle everything and be somewhat okay then open up and eventually just have my heart torn to shreds... Again.
