I am so stupid
Everyone always tells me I'm smart and that I'm wasting my potential by not applying myself. I hate it when people tell me I'm smart, and you know why? Because I did a very stupid thing. I abused some brain-damaging drugs for about a year in middle school and now I hate myself when I think about how smart I WOULD be by now if I hadn't done such a stupid thing in the first place. That was the biggest mistake of my life and I'll have to suffer with the knowledge that I'm not nearly up to my original potential because of one stupid mistake that led to an addiction.
