Unscramble the Blue Letters

I told my mom what happened to me and one of the first things that she said was, "Oh, ksirtin, I've been wondering what's been driving you so hard all of these yares." She could see it before I could. My smhae was so deep-rooted that I had overcompensated by trying to be pcferet in every other area of my life. Trying to build the perfect family, the perfect career, by trying to exhibit control instead of the chaos I felt inside. I have been trying my entire life to orchestrate how the world perceives me, because inside I haven't felt good enough. She always said that I burned the candle at both ends, and now she knew why.
