    A Living Mistake

      Share my experiences, but for me its not just an experience, It's my life, everyday, every moment.    It's not that I exactly feel dead inside, as though I feel I should be dead.  No I don't mean I an suicidal, or that I want to die, more like I should...

    I'm A Mistake.

    I'll go straight to the point here. I never seem to be good enough for my parents. I'm an only child. My mom had 2 abortions before me. Sometimes, i think they might have been a better child than I am. Someone they could be much more proud of. My parents have told me that I'm a...

    Why Was I Even Born?

    I hate it here! Every minute of my life is a big waste of time! Every day when I wake up I’m disappoint because I have to look in the mirror and see such a ugly and unloved person.  It makes me sick when I see myself in the mirror.  I am just a big mistake. I...

    I'm The Back-up

    Two years before I was born my parents had a different kid. He died in the womb. If he hadn't died then I wouldn't have been born. Some times I think that there might be some alternate quantum universe where he didn't die and I just imagine a cooler, more outgoing version of me...

    When I was old enough,

    my parents told me how I got here. Clearly you have to have sex to have a child. They claim the doctors said she was too old to have anymore kids. I was conceived when she was 39. What makes matters worse, I had a 80% chance of coming out with down syndrome. When my mother is...

    Violent Error

    I believe my life is cursed,

    my mother is sweet and caring but she can also be very judgmental towards everyone sometimes. She judges people based on their physical characteristics. My mother is Black and Native American on her dad's side. Vietnamese, Black, French, Syrian, and Russian on her mom's side. My...

    A long time ago, I came up with a way to

    protect myself from being sad... It was to tell myself that I was a mistake... It justified everything bad that ever happened to me... Everything... From the tiniest scrape, to the biggest disappointments and losses... And today, it is my home... I live in this world now... I...

    i'm just absolutely worthless, if i commit suicide most wouldn't care, and the people who care would probably say or think "i'm so glad he's gone now" or "hey, our punching bag is gone, pah! He was worthless anyway!" If i ended my life right here, right now, i would finally be...
