...Loneliness rots you from the inside out...

"Just what this world needs... another hyper-mature kid who's already burnt out. No wonder Tim sent her to me. I'm the fucking expect on the subject... Don't show emotions, don't let others get too close, and never let your guard down. That was what I told myself.
You see, if you build a wall and keep people out, then they can't get inside and hurt you. However, if no one can get in, you can't develop meaningful relationships with others. Your self-defense system backfires. By protecting yourself from harm, you wind up injuring yourself. Loneliness rots you from the inside out."
