I have a lot of friends but feel lonely.

Listen, Lucy

I have a lot of friends but feel lonely. I have great ideas but feel suffocated by one word of criticism. I am beautiful but feel so ugly. My life seems perfect but it is anything but. I want to be more accepting of my flaws, to hear what others say rather than take it as an insult, to have a different point of view...but I can't. I am paralyzed by my own conscious.

I have so many things to be proud of, and one day I will see that. Because of you, people like me recognize it's just a bad day not a bad life.
