The Secret We’re Keeping from You

Listen, your friends are hiding their mental illnesses from you.  Don't get upset. And don't make us feel bad about not trusting you with this part of us.  We just can't, and it's not entirely your fault. We're just too scared to lose you. I want to explain why. If you follow me on Instagram, [...]

The Vision Board… Less Stupid Than I Assumed.
