“It always amazes me how it is so easy to appear one way to the people around you but to live inside as someone else entirely.”
K.L. Slater, Safe With Me

“You could say it feels a bit like dressing up in the brightest party clothes so nobody sees how low and lost you feel underneath. You'd be surprised how easy it is to hide your true feelings with a smile and a kind word.”
K.L. Slater, Safe With Me

“You don't always know how you're going to react to a sudden tragedy breaking your life into little pieces.”
K.L. Slater, Blink
