To whom it may concern,I know all of you cared for me. Thanks to all of you who have helped me, I managed to last till now. But you couldn't understand my depression because for you to really understand it, you have to go through it, which I will not wish upon anyone. I do not blame you for that, but I will blame you if you let my release affect your happiness. We all did our bests but I still do not fit in in this world anymore and I know I never ever will. So this is my goodbye.
