They still don't understand what that girl in the mirror was going through. Nobody ever did. Nobody ever would. That girl in the mirror is not what I want to be. Never in my dreams would I have planned that. This is what other people made me. I am that girl in the mirror and I can't change that. I can never change that. Never. Never. Never...
