You know those people who seem ok even when they’re going through hell? Yes, the ones who pretend like they’ve got it all figured out and don’t need anyone and can deal with anything by themselves.

The ones who look like they can deal with anything and everything by themselves, are the ones who need someone they can break down in front of and rebuild again.
