subject line: i think i dug my own grave February 09, 2017 by Hannah Brencher the friend zone I’ve been lying for so long I may have completely forgotten the truth. Every kiss, every text, every “I’m fine” has been another nail in my emotional coffin. What they don’t tell you about ‘Friends with Benefits’ is that one friend ends up slowly drowning in everything they can’t say. I can’t distinguish anymore between what I like and what I’ve grown to like because he likes it. I look in the mirror and I’m no where to be found. I only see the bits and parts that have been edited and sterilized to please him.
