I don’t have to be cheered up all the time. On occasion, I just need to be left alone. Allow me to deal with the situation in my own way.
People need to realize it’s OK to be angry or sad sometimes. It’s healthy. It’s natural. And I don’t need someone to try and alter my mood. It is the mood I feel, and at times I want to see that mood threw. Let me stew. Let me fester. Let me be.
Stop acting like the jester assigned to my laughter. Don’t bug me and try to prod a smile. Just leave me alone. Get away.
I don’t need to be cheered up today. All I need is some peace and quiet, some solitary confinement. And I don’t need you. Not right now, anyway. Accept that. I’ll let you know when I’m all right again.
For now, I just want to take this on my own, unencumbered, unfettered, allowed to feel it all the way I see fit.
Let me be unhappy, just for a little while.
