I don’t mean to be overly analytical. It’s just my way of protecting myself and validating the emotions I’m feeling.
I don’t mean to push people away in times when I probably really want to be held close, to be told it’s going to be ok.
I don’t mean to take on the world alone and make you feel ignored, it’s just what I’m so used to.
I don’t mean to be bothered by things that don’t bother others, it’s just that there’s a reason why.
I don’t mean to seem difficult, but I promise I mean well.
I don’t mean to feel overwhelming, but it’s because my life is overwhelming me right now.
I don’t mean to.
