This world has taught me to always look at things with a critical eye- and to always be the distant one, in order to save yourself from being left behind to always put yourself first: because no one else will – and to always view things with a sense of humour, but to never take crap from anybody. This world has taught me to be the controlling one, to never be controlled – and to always smile, yes; but also have time to cry but to never cry in front of anyone, because that displays weakness and weakness is always wrong. This world has taught me that being vulnerable will get you nowhere, and let’s face it- sympathy is an extinct emotion, the mere traces of it left behind on the fake smiles on people’s faces because that is all that’s left of our materialistic world and everyone in it. This world has taught me that caring for anyone other than yourself is pointless because in the end you become the useless one. Yes, the world has taught me many things; but I can’t seem to learn my lesson.
»« IF I WANTED TO be spiteful I WOULD LOOK AT ALL THE HATEFUL MESSAGES YOU HAD LEFT ONCE UPON A TIME. IF I WANTED TO cry I WOULD THINK ABOUT ALL THE TIMES YOU HUMILIATED ME WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT. IF I WANTED TO BE RESENTFUL I WOULD REMEMBER WHEN YOU LEFT ME ALONE TO SAVE YOUR OWN SKIN. IF I WANTED TO BE ANGRY I WOULD RELIVE ALL THE TIMES YOU HAD LEFT ME TRAILING BEHIND; YOU TO LEAD, ME TO FOLLOW. OH DARLING, IF I WANTED TO BE BITTER I COULD. »«
