Story Of A Boy. by 89pixels Story Of A Boy. by 89pixels
half of the reason why i made this comic is because i want to make a story dedicated to the people who are having a hard time telling others about their problems or feeling the need to keep them to themselves only. either it's because they're afraid to do so or because they feel the need to maintain a good image in front of others and not wanted to be looked weak and so on.

i made this comic because i always feel this way. this is probably why people hardly ever see me making rant journals and everything ^q^)>

but i feel much better recently when i force myself to open up to some of my friends and my parents. it feels less lonely and kinda nice since like... you know someone seem to understand and want to support you kinda thing.

i hope those who are having the same problem will find the courage and try to open up themselves too to the others and get a move on with their fear. :'D

the other half of the reason is because i want to draw a crying boy.i'm sorry it's my sado tendencies okay asjdgaksdajsgd

thank you to =nyappyxmine, *jaerika, ~miocapure, and ~milky-RETURN for beta reading this ^q^!! and spotting all the miserable mistakes ajsdga i can never live without you guys :iconrlytearplz:

edit: wow i was only gone for awhile to sleep and there were already 4k+ faves and 23k+ views when i woke up ajksghdkasd you guys amaze me :iconsparklesplz::iconohmygodplz:

oh and i was planning to reply to every single of the comments here but.... that was before. now i don't have the confidence to reply to like 400++ comments without sounding repetitive and everything :icontearplz:

and for those who said thank you, i'm thanking you guys back because i'm glad this little comic strip actually makes you guys feel better :'D.
so, thank you!

Great story dude.

I think you really got the point of all that with the decision to let the little child take the role of the stranger who understands because children often havethat sense of what really happens many adults or teens tend to lose very quickly as they grow up. Some keep that, most don't. Suprisingly, I myself made an adult cry when i was as young in a very similar way C: Shame I don't remeber that myself.

This was amazing. I could really relate to this. Sometimes all you need is someone tell you it's alright to cry to save you from the pain hiding deep inside.

Wow, that was amazing. A very wise woman once said: "It's ok to not be ok."

This comic reminds me of that quote :)
