I can't take it anymore

It's hard to live in a place you hate, with people you can't stand, and not being able to be the person you want to be. It's harder to not be able to see the people you love. To be taken away from them and to hear the ones you hate slander their names. But to be taken from your family by another blood relative, that is a wound that can never heal. The pain just keeps getting worse, some days it's unbearable, but others you just go numb and don't know how to feel about anything. I can never tell which is worse though.

When I'm away from home, I mask the pain, bury it in the depths of my subconscious and pray it stays there until I'm alone. No one see's me broken, not because they don't care, but because I could never bare it if anyone ever did.

I think I'd be able to put up with all of this if I still had my best friend. Sure I still see her, but it's different. She's changed, and so have I. We're still friends, and always will be I'm sure, but we walk our separate roads. We never were alike. And I don't know how we became best friends in the first place, but even if we're to end up in different places, I'd always be there if she needed me, because you can't let a friendship like the one we had just fade away.

This is really sad, but beautiful. I'd like to know more of what happened though.

This sounds like it would be a really good opening to a longer piece. Its a little choppy though, and more details would be nice.. But, I think I enjoy it more when people get to the gist of things rather than beating around the bush. This piece has a great meaning to it, very deep! Great job, keep writing!! (:

Excellent work!  I'm sorry this happened to you.  As Karina said, a little more detail would be nice.  But then again, there's always room to improve.  Keep writing! :)

I really like the depth of this article. It's very nice. The only thing I would say is for you to add more detail. Maybe including some things your best friend may feel towards you. Do you think she feels the same way you do. About being different/opposite? But otherwise excellent work :)

This is so honest - love it.  I totally get where you're coming from with your friend.  As we grow up, our friends change.  It's almost harder to be around them when they change because you still remember when you were the same...

I love the honesty in this. I don't know if I'd be brave enough to be that honest -- not only with the audience, but with myself.  

I want to say I relate, and I do, but at the same time I'm not claiming to know the burden your expressing.


Very well written -- simple, easy, and something I'll read again

So difficult! I can't imagine.

You did a great job of putting your thoughts into words. The best part, I think, is the second to last paragraph. Very good.
