Worthless. Stupid. These are the words I grew up hearing.they’re the words I try to outrun, because if I let them in, they might stay there and grow and fill me up and in, until the only thing left of me is worthless stupid worthless stupid worthless stupid freak. And then there’s nothing to do but run harder and fill myself with other words: This time will be different. This time I will stay awake. – All the Bright Places, Jennifer Niven
