I Am Dead Inside

    I wouldn't say completely.

    . Over the years I've been slowly dying and it's been slowly getting faster. Now I'm so close I don't know when it'll be full.

    Dead inside , lost hope,

    nothing happy and being upset all the time is a mixture for hell. I'm living in hell. I'm feeling like the most miserable person around . The only thing worse is being homeless or a horrible disease or being crippled.

    I've been feeling completely dead

    for so long. I feel I have lost all good qualities of me and I don't think I can ever get them back. I do not enjoy anything at all anymore and sadly I have no dreams at all to motivate me for a change. I've lost all empathy for people and interest in them. And they did so too...

    nothing excites me anymore.

    these days I react based on how I'm supposed to react in a situation not because it's how I feel, because I don't feel at all. I'm almost always bored, I used to be able to empathise with people now I can't tolerate it when someone tells me their problems.

    Yeah, I feel dead inside.

    But it helps that if you take the first step to make yourself happy. Like treating yourself to a vacation, spending time with loved ones. Doing things that you enjoy. It really helps to boost your self-esteem.

    I am constantly moving in slow motion.

    While everyone else is moving on with their life I am still a mile behind. All I can think about it death and darkness and of how dead I really am inside. I am screaming for help. I haven't had a straight thought in months and it's starting to make an impact on my life.
