I Hate Myself

By December 6, 2021No Comments

I hate myself. I hate that I overthink everything.  I hate the way I cry over little things.  I hate that I can’t be happy. I hate that I push everyone away. And most of all I hate that ruined the one relationship that meant the most to me.  I carry this pain with me daily and I don’t know how to let it go. It’s like the pain has been here so long I almost don’t know how to be happy anymore. I just want it all to stop.
