    so sad and angry. I know things will get better but how do I deal with things now? Do I just keep telling myself that? It doesn't work. I've tried. I've tried so hard for so long. Now everyday I wake up I feel like I'm about to cry. I can't keep doing this. I want to die. But I...

    I've been depressed for two months

    now due to neglect and anxiety and have been trying to fight it. I then suddenly had the urge to commit suicide tonight. I don't usually tell anyone about my problems but it was like a must to tell my bestfriend about my plan. He then told my parents and they talked to me about...

    I'm tired of feeling useless.

    The only thing stopping me from committing suicide is God. I pray asking for questions as to why I'm treated so horribly. I have no one to go to. No one to help me and I'm slowly running out of options.

    By Declaring We Are Weak, We Become Weak, We Do Not Become Better.

    Whatever you dream and think of, you create. If it is hell, you die and see hell. If it is evil and Satan, you get a Satan. If ghosts, you get ghosts. Whatever you think, that you become. If you have to think, think good thoughts, great thoughts. This taking for granted that you...

    Depression is... An emptiness,

    that swallows us whole. It's not even just pure dark or light, pure sadness or anger, it's emptiness. My emptiness was caused by my sense of not belonging. Nobody likes me, or talks to me. Nobody wants to be my friend or ask me what's wrong. They just don't care about me. I don...
