To those who deal with my pessimism, truly sorry for my negative thoughts. Constant contradicting realism, thinking that life is an apple that rots.
Sorry for my mindset being so dark, even though I’m outgoing and bright. All my insecurities leave a mark, I wish for optimism so I’ll fight.
I know this journey of growth will be hard, this mindset I dealt with for many years. No longer a life that’s a broken shard an adventure for a new atmosphere.
I’ll push to grow, change and face it head on. Then my pessimism will be long gone.
