    I struggle with depression

    and anxiety. I feel so Lonely, even when I'm around a group of friends, I feel like I don't belong. I feel like when I die, none of what i did will matter.

    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...

    Everyday I go into school

    and everyone thinks I'm the awesome,perfect, happiest girl there. It's kind of funny. All I can do is sit in class and try not to cry. The hardest part is starting to tear up and having to force a smile. I'm so tired..

    They say you can't last a day in the real world,

    I say you can't survive a night in mine.

    Tonight my depression came to creep up on me.

    Why did I have to be born ugly, not that smart, and not "normal"? Who defines normal? Psychologist and society. Why should I listen to what they say? I have no choice if I did I wouldn't be this way. People make me feel this way. Words people say and have said play through my...

    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...

    I thought I finally pushed past my depression,

    I thought someone actually cared. But when they disappeared I was left with nothing. I think about cutting everyday again, Yet I haven't done it (maybe I am strong). But then I think again, and I feel worthless. I feel like I'm not good enough for anyone, and I constantly feel...

    If it weren't for the horrendous pain

    that my death would inflict on my parents and those around me, I would have been dead a long time ago. Although today I am not particularly suicidal, and actually had quite a good day. I still feel as though its a shame that I can't just die. And I worry that this is as good as...

    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...

    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...

    Depressed Teens Are Intelligent, Not Psycho!

    If you are sad about family stuff (yes, even abuse) or about conflicting inner personalities....you are smart enough to realize that this is not the way you want your life and the world to be. These things are at odds with your beliefs and thoughts.... Therefore they upset you...

    Here in a few days I will not be a teen anymore.

    But I still battle depression. One minute I'll be happy and then the next I'll be breaking down in tears. I've been this way ever since I could remember I learned to hide it really good. Until I lost my aunt 3 years back and I haven't been about to control it since then. I'm...

    No! I definitely don't think I'm special enough

    to be cared about and actually why would anyone care? My parents, the ones who were meant to love me unconditionally, have given me away so where am I suppose to look for a refuge? I'm just a thing that came up and they couldn't get rid of me.
