Just because I hide my tears, doesn't mean I don't cry.
Just because I hide the pain, doesn't mean I do not hurt.
Just because I smile on the outside, doesn't mean I'm not sad.
Just because I talk to people every day, does not mean I am not lonely.
Just because I stand and fight, doesn't mean I'm not afraid.
Just because they are not visible, doesn't mean my scars aren't real.
Just because I cry out for help, doesn't mean I'll ever find someone to save me.
What you see isn't always what is real. Many people who suffer, do so in silence. We hide behind ourselves, hoping to one day be free, to heal, to be happy, to smile for real. For some of us that day may never come.
Try to appreciate the little things in life. Realize that no matter what you may go through, it could be worse.
You could be one of us.
