    Facing The World By Myself

    People don't know how I feel. They don't know what it's like to be in a crowded room and still feel lonely. I feel like everyone eventually leaves, no one actually cares. That's the reason I started self-harming because I feel that empty loneliness inside and I can't help but...

    You get out of it’s hold, take a breath of relief when you feel yourself relaxing slightly and then all it takes is one second and it all comes crashing back down, pulling you back in with 101 reasons as to why you’re not good enough. It covers your mouth so you can’t talk...

    Today I was about to cry in front of my class.

    I tried to hide it by taking off my glasses and wiping my eyes but one boy saw me. Luckily he just asked if I was okay and didn't tell anyone. Everyone thinks I'm happy that I'm all by myself, but I'm not. I wish I had friends that actually like me and don't laugh at me...

    Unpredictable

    I can't see it coming. I'll be happy, carefree, excited, and then it just stops. Suddenly I feel empty. I feel like I'm being drained and then filled up with a cold sadness. I wish it would stop, but it doesn't. The reason is unknown to me. Why am I sad? I don't know if I'll ever...

    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...
