I take part of that back.
There are, actually, two people who I desperately want to understand me.
One of those people already does. And the fact that she lives over 700 miles away, and the fact that I've never met her - those truths change nothing.
There's another person who I wish would understand me. She doesn't. She probably never will. There's too much distrust, for some stupid reason that's out of my control. I plan to continue to live despite this. So there.
