And people make you feel worse bc how dare you be unhappy when there's starving children and homeless people. Everyone has their own problems. You have no idea what someone's going through no matter how happy they seem in front of people
one day, it just clicks. you realize what's important and what isn't. you learn to care less about what other people think of you and more about what you think of yourself. you realize how far you've come and you remember when you thought things were such a mess that they'd never recover. and then you smile. you smile because you are truly proud of yourself and the person you've fought to become.
