She's been through so much in her life
I don't know what to say, how to react
People don't care about her story
They care about making their life easier
Avoiding everything that is outside of their comfort zone.
It consumes them
Every moment spent on listening
Is a moment they will never get back.
It's really frustrating
Having to fake your mood, feelings
To maintain your relationships.
Between you and me
The mask on your face
Is only there because of the people you chose to turn to
They're not the people you want to trouble
And why, you're asking?
Because they have something you want and really need right now
The thing that keeps them from falling,
And you're the one risking it.
You're looking for it and you know you won't find it with "troubled" people
You'll find it with people who have confidence and stability in their life to hold you above the water
That's what you think.
In reality, those people, most of the times, can't help you.
Maybe they have the ability, energy, willingness, knowledge et cetera
BUT they need to keep themselves from heavy situations. they're looking for something you can't offer.
So who CAN help you?
The so-called "troubled" people.
The people who are handling a situation right now.
They need the support, knowledge and advice that you are seeking yourself.
They're the ones you should reach from now on. Or at-least put them first on your list.
