What’s one thing you didn’t know was sad until it happened to you?

I’m not a well-liked person. I’m loud and arguably annoying. I try to be kind, and make up for my flaws, and while it’s gotten better as I’ve gotten older, people have always made it obvious they didn’t like me.

But being told in a room full of my classmates to “just shut up” when I was expressing my excitement about something caused something in me to deflate and crumble. People can be cruel.
