Christmas

This Christmas, I've never felt so lonely in my life.
So I painted a smile and pretended to be happy
Because no one wants to know if you're truly
fine or not.

  1. Nobody cares even if you are happy or sad yes.

  2. It is so touching. Friends around us, they're busy with their everyday life. They want to hear about joy, and read about happiness. Seldom you find people who sincerely listen to your heart. Take care!

  3. People love to feel needed. They want to be "there for you." But truly listening for the thousandth time, when the sadness or pain hasn't magically dissipated .. it gets exhausting, so I don't blame them. I just write. I shout out into the abyss of the internet and feel good about it. Then I sit back to see if, by chance, anyone else is listening.
