    How do you go on living,

    what's there to live for? How do you find meaning and purpose in your life, have something or someone to live for when nobody cares and appreciates you? No one takes the time to tell you how much you mean to them. No one takes the time to be there to listen and support you...

    The boy that I like is seeing someone,

    and that someone just friend requested me on Facebook. I should act civil, but I can bear to look at him. I mean, it's not his fault. It just hurts seeing them together. What do I do?

    Anyone ever had someone

    who really made you happy, someone who brightened your day and you know you brightened theirs, until they met a friend? And now that friend is the source of their bright day and you were left in the corner of the room to handle being alone by yourself?

    False Hope

    Right now I have a girlfriend

    but as with every relationship (the few I have had) once something goes wrong I'll always assume the worst. I made her very mad and she is right to be mad but some of the things that happened were out of my control. I know I'm depressed when I'm lonely or when I feel lonely...

    It seems like a stupid reason to be depressed

    considering that there are 7 billion people on Earth, but I can't interact with them properly. They don't seem to like me. I try to like them... but they are less and less human as the years go on. I'm a Creep. I'm a Weirdo. I don't belong here. I need help... I need love

    What I Hate Most About It

    What I hate most about it is that if I ask for help, if I let someone find out, then they'll feel pressured or guilt tripped into spending time with me. I don't want to make anyone to feel like that. I really don't want to pressure anyone into keeping me company, I just want...

    I feel really depressed right now.

    I always feel like my family and friends have someone else. I always tell people that I'm fine by myself, but I'm not. I hate where I am in life. Sometimes i think about ending it all. It seems a lot easier than living. I feel alone.
