She walked in the bathroom with a smile on her face, letting her parents know she was going to take a shower so they shouldn’t enter. The pretty girl stepped in the shower, burst out in tears and took short breaths. She slowly put a finger in her throat.

You get out of it’s hold, take a breath of relief when you feel yourself relaxing slightly and then all it takes is one second and it all comes crashing back down, pulling you back in with 101 reasons as to why you’re not good enough.
