I’m Scared My Mental Illness Makes Me Hard To Love

I’m scared my mental illness makes me unlovable. It’s a statement I hate writing and a sentence I hate thinking about. But it’s how I feel.

While this is a small part of me, I can’t help but feel as though there is a giant neon sign following me.
