sometimes it’s hard

sometimes it’s hard to let others know what you’re feeling, because you feel the whole world probably has heard your resounding thoughts echoing, echoing, echoing about your skull. sometimes it’s hard to realize that not everyone prefers the internal dialogue of a good thought sequence, debating between person and rational thoughts. sometimes it’s hard to let others understand that no, you’re not shutting them out; that’s just how you process what’s going on around you. sometimes it’s hard to verbalize your thoughts because your brain takes a little longer to muddle through your fears and emotions, leaving you confused until you can process your consciousness. sometimes it’s hard to say, “i need to withdraw for a while to access my mind.”
