I just want to be able to say, “How are you?” to someone. I have no one in my life. My family doesn’t exist. My coworkers are sugary syrup covered in hypocrisy and servility. I have no friends, they all abandoned me. It was a farce to begin with, their “liking” me. They all lied. No one’s checked up on me. My mother is more of a police officer paranoid about my wellbeing than a friend. We’ve declared our friendship to each other but I don’t think we’re really friends. The internet is full of psychic assault. The professional world is bullshit. No one is genuine. No one is smart. No one cares.
