Of course. But I have accepted it as a part of my life. I sometimes keep it astray for long periods of time, and other times I keep it close for a period of time. I can’t abandon something I love forever. It doesn’t work that way. I was abandoned enough as a chid, I don’t need to do the same that has been done so badly to me. I know I shouldn’t abuse myself, but people don’t understand the help it gives me, no one ever will exactly.
