Ever since I was really young, and despite some childhood trauma, I always did all the "right" things, and basically met everyone's needs, except my own. This pattern continued well into adulthood. I was perfect on the outside, and a mess on the inside. Remaining solid on the outside caused me to internalize all my pain. Because of this, I was inspired to become a Child and Youth Worker so that I can advocate for young people suffering in silence. My two decades of working in mental health has taught me one thing; there's no such thing as an adult. We're all just children, in bigger bodies.
