"Sometimes I think I want to die. I want to vanish from the earth and never be seen again. But I’m not sure that’s what I want. I just want a break from life. I want to go off somewhere by myself with no phone and no responsibilities. Somewhere where I don’t have to worry about my homework or my friends or my parents. Somewhere I can think all my thoughts and write them down if I’d like. Somewhere where I don’t have to be bothered by other human life if I don’t want to. But I need to stop dreaming. I have phone calls to return and texts to reply to. I have 3 sisters and a brother who need me. I have chores to do and homework to finish. I have school to attend and friends to have forced conversation with. It’s tiring. It’s all so mentally tiring. But I am a person and this is life so I must figure out how to survive."
