We keep crushing ourselves little by little in such small, unrecognisable ways unconsciously that one day we don't even realize who we really are anymore.
Because the person we became to impress someone, to hear someone out, to know someone better, to understand their perspective is simply not us.
We have different beliefs but we buried them just because they weren't ready to hear it or they wouldn't accept it and in all this we didn't realize that we were hurting ourselves in ways we never thought of hurting anyone.
Stop being sorry for others. And stop being sorry for yourself.
