A letter home

Hi mum,

Thanks for calling yesterday. You don’t know how much that phone call meant to me. I really wanted to talk, but I’m sorry. Something always seems to get in the way…

To be honest, no, I’m not okay. I’ve been sat here since 3am, head in my hands cradling these tears. I couldn’t sleep again…

University is tough, but I always liked a challenge. It’s draining me though. I’m tired of just barely getting by.

I can’t do it anymore.

Walking out day by day with a mask plastered on my face with a smile drawn from a sharpie pen. I was good at it before, but now the cracks are widening.

I don’t know what to do anymore…

But don’t worry, we’re all survivors aren’t we? I hope you’re okay. Please don’t burden yourself with my problems, you have too much on your shoulders as it is.

Love you mum  x

Hi mum,

Thanks for calling the other day. I’m sorry I couldn’t talk long, my friends were being as annoying as usual haha I’m doing okay.

University is hard but I can handle it, you know me! Always loved a challenge! But yeah, I’m okay thanks. Just getting by as usual, we’re all survivors aren’t we? haha Hope everything is going well at home.

Bye mum! X
