I'm fine by DestinyBlue I'm fine by DestinyBlue
This. This. This and This again.

Story of my life at the moment. Not because I don't want to talk, because I can't. Some things you have to go through alone. My piece Paint your Wings by DestinyBlue was also inspired by my situation, though there is more hope in that image... things have got tougher recently. I am very lucky to have some very close friends I can confide in including my beautiful Moogle :) I appreciate and am so thankful for them. Sorry I can't share more online...

Its such at odds with my personality. I'm an eternal optimist. Anyone who knows me or has met me at a convention knows I love to laugh and it takes a lot to get me down, unfortunately this is. Well, its inspiration at least :)

One day I'll be able to tell everyone everything's not fine, but for now,

I'm fine.

Edit: Wow, so many people doing this now it's almost a meme!
Yes, I am the original artist, and no, I didn't copy anything else. I know there's loads like this around now but there certainly wasn't when I drew this :)
I love that so many people were inspired, and there's certainly room aboard my bandwagon for everyone ;)
If you use this as inspiration please credit me, then I can put you in my special favorite folder:…

No, you're not fine. I can see it clearly. Come on my friend tell me what's happened to you. Let me hug you.
It's beautiful and anguishing. I love it.

People thinks that my life is awesome, and that I'm always happy. The truth is totally the opposite. I always smile, but I smile because I struggle, and I don't want to worry others, or seem weak. I don't want too much attention on my emotional self either... So I smile. I act like I'm the happiest girl in the world. Though I might as well be one of the most miserable. It's all on me, and my family's actions. Heck even a teacher almost broke my mask, with something I'd never think to get so upset at. Like, extremely. I've wanted to suicide... more than a few times. Nevertheless, I will smile eternally... For some reason I can't stop smiling for more than an hour. It's like a rule in me; Smile. My eyes always glitter, sometimes from tears than I'm holding back. Everyone thinks that it's because I'm happy. There may be someone who knows who I really am though... That person found out that I'm actually really sensitive. He might as well found out a bunch of other stuff... He reads hands. B-but he is not my crush lol he runs a resort! 

So, no one really knows me. Not even my parents. Not even my brothers. Not even my best friend. No one. And I, will smile forever without hesitation.
This is exactly how I am. To an outsider who doesn't know me, I'm the luckiest girl in the world. My friends know I've got emotional scars, but they don't know how deep the scars are or how many there are. My family doesn't see me as unhappy, they see me as rude, moody, and just about how any adult sees people when they're "controlled by hormones". Heck, my boyfriend doesn't really know the full story...

When it comes to those who don't know me, it's because I'm so antisocial that I don't feel comfortable talking to people I don't know, and because I've been shown multiple times that to show weakness is to tell them "Go ahead, mock me." My friends and my boyfriend don't know because I don't want to worry them or show weakness. My family doesn't know because they think it's "just a phase", that I'll "grow out of it soon", and that "it's just hormones".

Nobody knows the real me either. Heck, I'm not sure I remember the real me, because I've been creating a false persona for so long that I think I've forgotten my real self...

It's nice to know I'm not the only person like that...

There's a bunch of people like us out there somewhere...  Yuiko Kuruguya (Smile) [V8] Its nice knowing I'm not alone too.
To know one is not alone is truly the highest happiness one can wish to experience, isn't it?
You express life in your art
