Explain Why

Deep down on the inside, she's struggling to want to be here on this earth. When things take a turn for the worse, you just got to know your worth. All this time wasted, she thinks in her fragile mind. Why pretend you are good? When everything is chaotic and always going in the wrong direction. She prays she find's her true love, the one who will love her at her worse. True love is all she wants to feel, without feeling like she's a mistake on this earth. She wish she could paint it out for you. So, you can feel all the pains, the anger, the hate, the hurt and betrayal she feels. The torture of it all is feeling like a nobody.
She's always taking risk in her life. Every relationship she had, it's always the person cheating on her but never wants to let her go. Go figure! It don't make any sense, unless she's missing something. Everyone tends to talk down about her body. Why even bother with her time? Instead, of giving her fake love, why not just leave her alone? Please explain to us why humans take the time to get to know the next human to just be disloyal, disrespectful, fake in everyway, and dishonest? She asked why? Why? Can you explain? Or is it to painful to even have this go across your brain?
