"Don't cry."Someone whispered. However she failed to listen as she continued to sob.
She cried over the things that were said to her. She cried over the hurtful things she said to others. She cried over the hatred she had towards her low self esteem and her unwillingness to speak her mind. She cried over the scars that were visible on her heart.
"Damn it! Don't cry!" A voice echoed through her minds. She tried to hold back her sobs, only to feel the spreading ache across her chest as she took in a deep breath before shedding tears once more, unable to stop it.
"Useless!" The voice scolded her. "Could you do anything else besides crying."
"Shut up!" She shouted back. "Just shut up!" She shouted once more before looking at herself in the mirror. "Can you just shut up and stop crying! It's useless crying you silly!" She said before forcing herself to smile. She made sure that her smile was kept in place before putting her mask back- her mask that showed the world that she is a carefree girl who could take jokes and take things at her stride, even if she interprets words into signs of hurt, anger and rejection towards her..
She could take it slow- after all, everything is just a facade. Right? Damn, she doesn't even recongise herself in the mirror anymore.
As long as you continue to be yourself, that's enough
