Everyone feels alone in some way. Alone means without anyone in your life that you can trust. Trust is a strong word. Trusting someone takes a lot of courage and strength. When you are alone you have locked yourself in your own little world. People who are sick with a rare disease are usually more alone then someone who is healthy and strong. Personally, I am extremely alone. Having my family hate me is one of the hardest things in my life. Usually family is everything, but for me family is not. I have tried to run away and find closure, but I always get caught. I find it hard to trust people and it is difficult for me to fit in. I know there are people in the world feel exactly like me. I feel things very strongly. That one word will haunt me forever. That one word could be from “ugly” and “skinny”, to “nice” or “smart”. But on the inside I know I am not these things. At home, I am none of these things. People think all these things but I am not. People feel like this all the time and my advice is to not listen to anyone and live your life the way you want it. Whether it is alone or with someone.
