You’re feeling empty, right? That’s because you’re trying to please everyone else. You’re giving little bits of yourself away to everyone, trying to make sure everyone gets some of you. But then there is no you left for you. You’ve poured yourself out to everyone else. That’s why you feel so fucking empty.

I woke up this morning for three minutes. I rolled out of bed, put on my slippers, and stared at myself in the bathroom mirror. That was all I could take. I went back to sleep. I didn’t go back to bed. I just went back to sleep. I slept all day. I sleep most days. I’m asleep when I go to school, asleep when I’m telling the barista which form of caffeine I prefer. It never wakes me up, but I spend $3.50 on it anyway. I’m asleep when my professors are talking, asleep when I go to the store to pick up milk. Sometimes I wake up, but it’s terrifying so I go back to sleep right away. I want to wake up. I want to have a reason to wake up.
