Tooth Ache for a Rotten Childhood

“It is still summer, but the summer is no longer alive. It has come to a standstill; nothing withers, and fall is not ready to begin. There are no stars yet, just darkness.” 
-Tove Jansson, The Summer Book

You are not unique in your suffering.
The world is not cruel to you, it is just indifferent.
And the children do not bully you because they fancy you.
