My 9 year old brother started reading Harry Potter, and he asked me, so earnestly, “Were the Dursley’s mean to Harry when he was little?” I hadn’t thought much about it before, and he seemed so upset that I totally lied to that little kid. “NO! Of course they weren’t.”
But then I couldn’t get young Harry out of my head. There must have been a time before he was resigned to their neglect that he wanted their affection.
There will never be a time when I am not absolutely broken up over this.
I hope you find someone you can’t live without.I really do. And I hope you never have to know what it’s like to have to try and live without them.
I am so sorry to all the people I hurt while I was hurting.
I’ll never get over how much time I wasted on you..

I hate my body, my hair, my face, my thoughts is turning me insane.
Be with someone who would drive five hours, just to see you for one.
The timing in which people enter your life is very important.
There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you’d better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you’ll never understand what it’s saying.
