What’s the point of having a glass, but there’s nothing to drink?
When people say, “I’m sick and tired of being second best,” it really hurts because I never even make it onto the leaderboard. I give everything my all and I’m never even close to being what everyone wants of me. I try and I try, and people take and take. And then I’m empty, and everyone expects me to be able to fill my glass all on my own so that they can take yet another sip and drain me again. Again and again, people use me for what I have and I trust them thinking that maybe this one is going to be different. But deep down, I know that they’re not going to change. And then people begin to lose interest in me and leave, because what’s the point of having a glass, but nothing to drink? And I know that at some point, I’ll be too tired to be able to fill my glass again.
