“Do you feel bad?”
I shook my head yes. I admitted it. I felt bad that no one had noticed. That I had done something for the attention of others and hadn’t received it. I tried ignoring it but I knew very well that it was there, again – the feeling of not being good enough. Something had been wrong with what I had written. I hadn’t written it well enough. I hadn’t expressed myself properly.
I didn’t even remember what I wrote.
