    No matter how much work

    and time you spend towards something, sometimes it's not enough and it is not meant to be. All that is desired is a place where you can be happy and content. Be proud of yourself. So I just sit here with my interest in music and my debt, wishing I would of never picked up a...

    I know how to fake a smile

    even when I'm really low. Faking a smile is a good trick that helps me hide it. I don't want any stupid therapy

    I am new member but infact have been reading

    I am talented and I know I am,

    but my for some reason my legal guardians and their daughter have been telling me I'm nothing, I'm worthless, and I can't do anything my entire life. Always questioning me, criticizing me, saying little stuff like "you shouldn't wear that" or "you should be this way", "did you...

    Stuff Is Making Me Mad

    I've had issues with depression since I was 11. I eventually was put on medication when I wasn't self medicating with other things. I was forced to stay off my mood stabilizer when my mother went all nuts and threatened a lot of BS if I filled my prescription with her insurance...

    I Am Depressed

    Sadness is tears after losing a game

    or a broken bone, depression is sobs at 3 am when you're all alone. Sadness makes you blue, depression makes you numb. Sadness loses to happy, depression loses to none. Sadness is the curious neighbor, depression is the unwanted houseguest. Sadness is your hotel room, depression...

    Am I Dreaming Or Is It Me?

    I fall asleep to wake up to this dream. This dream of me. This dream of me falling off the track. Of things I can't take back. It's just a list of faces and known places. A heart that cannot be fixed. A mind that's on the fritz. What is this. What is this hole you've dug...

    The entire world thinks your worthless.

    You have nothing good going for you. Today you are 23 and yet you are still to amount to anything. You're a coward, you'll never commit to anything, including the ending you justify so well. You're a shame to your father who taught you so well, the man that couldn't understand...

    I want to sleep my days away

    until I have none. I want a drunken stupor that lasts in silence of my own house so I can dwell and be completely lost but without being lost at all. No one to call. No one to see. No one to hear. Just me and my empty thoughts. Alone. In complete bitter silence where my mind...

    I've taken the tumble into complete depression.

    It's been three years since i've experienced a moment so dark as this one. I feel like I can't breathe and the worst thing is I refuse to tell anyone. I'm ashamed of who I am and that I let myself do this. I recently stopped cutting, which I'm immensely proud of, but I feel even...

    I have no tears left and I want so badly to cry. I never feel happy. Almost nothing excites me or makes me happy anymore. It's been like this for almost two years now, or more I don't remember. I feel a sadness lurking around me all the time. Around my friends, my family, around...
