You Don’t Even Realize

…you don’t realize how emotionally damaged and beat down you are until you’re trying to do everything to protect their feelings even after they continually hurt you… you try your hardest never to disrespect them and you do everything to make them feel good because you don’t want them to experience the hurt you’re feeling…
