Not sure how these ideas are formed in young people's heads. You've been nurturing, and yet on some days my present mind wanders to a distant memory of sadness and confusion and not having someone to tell it to. I don't know exactly how I turned into that stoic little girl and further developed into an adult who constantly refuses to admit she needs help. I can handle this, I can do this on my own. I've perfected the "try not to need anything from anyone" mind-set. It's crippling, sometimes. Mostly though, I think it's my strongest fake crutch.
