Recently I’ve been feeling as though most people see my life and view me as living the picture perfect life. From the outside I have a stable family, I have friends, I succeed in school, I have a successful sister, my dad does well at work, we are living without my mom needing to work, we have a nice home, we have money, I “get what I want”, and I am just an overall happy person. What people don’t know can’t hurt them, right? I have honestly lost a lot of respect for people because of these views. I do not appreciate people judging me before knowing me. I don’t even think most of the people I interact with frequently view my life as having struggles. They still view me as leading a stable life. There are so many times where I wish that this wasn’t the case. I wish people could understand my situation. I wish that people knew the real me and could realize what I deal with. It has become very hard to even talk to the few people I do about what’s happening recently because they don’t know my background. They don’t know where I’ve come from and view my past as perfect as well. When I compare my life to the lives of my peers I may seem put together. I don’t deal with as drastic of situations in comparison to their own. But in reality I do. I have my problems in a different sense and always have. I have always been ‘struggling under cover’ so to say. But no one knows that. I have always been one to put on a happy face and act as though nothing is wrong, therefore no one thinks anything is wrong and never has been.
Some day I really want to spill my story, spill everything. But not to some random psychologist but someone who I trust and know cares about me in a personal sense. I want someone special that means a lot to me and I mean a lot to them. I want to open up to someone and soon. I know who I’d want to talk to, but not who would be willing to listen and to try and understand my side of things.
