I know not what I felt like I needed nor what I wanted

I thought what I wanted was appreciation

I pushed for respect

And it made me disconnect

I shut every emotion from my life

But when you shut out emotions, you also shut out people

I had never felt so alone

My name is Makaela, I felt really alone for a while and as if I wasn't appreciated by those around me. I shut out the people in my life that I really care about, including myself.
