conversations in real life never happen this perfectly, so that's why we have writing.

i feel like it's not enough, but i can't take any more

i feel like it's not enough-
what isn't?
everything. everything i do, everything I've gone through, it's not enough
how so? i don't understand-
- no, of course you don't. you wouldn't. it's impossible to understand- it's even too hard for me to understand, and I'm the one feeling it
try to explain then. I'm here to listen if you need me.
i do. i really really do. i need someone to just...care
go ahead...
it's not enough. even though i've been through rough times, hasn't everyone? i mean, am i so weak that i crumble under the weight of life's load when everyone else can-
everyone?
-okay, lots of people can bear it? 
i feel like i haven't been through enough to justify feeling so helpless, so small
*silence*
and no matter how hard i try, i just cant take it. if anything else happens...I'll crumble
*laughs bitterly* i really am that pathetic.
*silence*
*silence*

aren't you going to say anything?
only if you'll listen.
sure i will.
you. are. not. weak. you are struggling. 
and don't you dare call yourself pathetic, you wonderful human you. 
even if it's the truth?
you know what the truth is? bad things happen to good people. horrible things. things we might never recover from. everyone can only take so much. and you don't deserve to have to carry any more.
you are so strong. and you are so brave. and don''t you ever forget that. I won't let you forget that for God's sake, because even when you can't see that about yourself I can see it about you. and i will tell you that. over and over again. incessantly.

you're gonna make me cry.
there is no one on earth i'd rather cry with.
you moron. i love you too.
a conversation

*me crying at my own thing*
