So there's this guy. And he tends to be pretty popular wherever he goes. He has a somewhat large, but close group of friends. Just about all of those friends know that one thing about him; that thing that sets him apart from most "typical" guys (readers, you probably know what this is). He gets told that anyone who dates him, or who has him would be really lucky, and that he would be a really good boyfriend to whoever dated him. He doesn't always believe these things about himself, and frequently doesn't even think he's worth anyone's time.
Consequently, despite all his amazing friends, he feels lonely and worthless most of the time. He really wonders why anyone would ever want to pursue him, or what anyone could ever see in him. And though puts on a happy face, on the inside he's quite the opposite. His confidence levels are down the drain, and he doesn't know how to stand up for himself and be the confident guy he's supposed to be.
He's lost in this labyrinth, the same one that he's been lost in from all of the physical and emotional abuse from family and school since he was young. It's like the worthless feelings have been drilled into his head, and he doesn't know how to get them out. All he knows how to do is to take life one step at a time, and to hold back the tears.
I apologize for the lack of positivity in this story. But this guy wanted to have his feelings written down somewhere. Usually my posts are happy, but today led me to this one.
