Why are you just standing there,

Staring at me like that?

Please just…

Do something,

Anything.

I was reading the book 'Reconstructing Amelia' the other day and that one scene towards the end stuck out to me. Amelia is begging in her mind for her mother to ask her what's wrong but her Mom doesn't realize somethings wrong because Amelia seems okay on the outside if only a little stressed. When she finally asks if Amelia is okay, Amelia can't find the words to say and lies saying she's fine. She wasn't but I'm not going to spoil if you haven't read it. Of course the whole book made me cry in whole but that scene...it was a lot. LoveWithABrokenHeart

It's about the death of a girl named Amelia who supposedly jumped from the roof of her school and of what really happened to her. It's a really amazing book and written well but if you read it have some tissues on hand, it's a doozy!

XD It's a fantastic read, promise! It just has a lot of feels with it, like the Fault in Our Stars.

Oh dear...XD now that is a good read. Hilariously heartwrenching with the weirdest author in the world, but fantastic. :)

In response to your description, Sometimes a well made mask is also a double bladed sword.

Sometime, the others seem so oblivious to what is happening to us...

Yeah... It's true that you should take the first step, but first, it's hard, and second, and second, if they can't even remark that you're not well, is it really a good thing to tell them about it?...

True...but sometimes it is important to tell them or at least somebody.

Also true, even if it can be hard... Staying stuck in your shell never accomplish anything... and I talk from experience >.<

Why going out of the shell, when you can't be sure what will wait for you outside?... This is the thing you must not think in these case, yet you can't think otherwise...
