What hurts is when your best friend ditches you, and you are the one who gets yelled at
What hurts is when a guy you like is too busy with video games or silly little quotes
What hurts is when two guys who are your best friends love you, and all you feel is the love of your friendship
What hurts is having a sister who hates your guts, lies to get you in trouble, embarrasses you in front of her bubblegum friends, and picks fights
What hurts is having friends who care about how you feel
What hurts is knowing you can’t give up, no matter how hard you try
What hurts is that you are reading this and either don’t care, or are pitying me
What hurts is hating the kid next to you because he is a troublemaker and ruins your fun
What hurts is avoiding a kid because he smells bad
What hurts is not being able to tell your parents your deepest, darkest secret
What hurts is thinking of how school sucks and how I just wanna quit
What hurts is that I’m writing this
What hurts is that I don’t care
