Hit hard 

This is going to hit a lot of people on a whole other level because this is one of the most crushing, but truest, things. 

The people with the biggest smiles. 

The people with the biggest hearts. 

The ones who care about people. 

The ones who check up on friends to make sure they’re doing well. 

The ones who would give everything to talk with a friend. If a friend is hurting and that friend is in need, they would go out to visit them, even if it was early in the morning. 

We find out these are the people who are hurting the most. These are the people who feel like they have no one — no one in their lives who care about them. They would give all the love in the world, but they won’t receive any love in return. These are the people who are hurting really badly, but they keep a smile on their faces every day. You would never know they’re hurt. Do you know why? Because they don’t want other people to suffer the pain they suffered. So, remember, just because a person is showing happiness all the time or looks like they don’t take anything seriously, that doesn’t mean they have not been hurt.
