I thought I was stronger and one step ahead because I always have been. But this time was different, in the worst way. I got destroyed by words I never thought could hurt me, things I never thought I’d care about. And it hurt because I didn’t see it coming. And it hurt because I thought I knew myself and the girl I thought I knew would not let herself cry over this. And what’s so terrifying is realizing that maybe I lost that girl and maybe you took her with you.
