    Yeah. That's the right way to put it.

    Damaged goods. Or else I'm loosing my edge? Or else I try to understand what I'm ultimately clearly missing out in some people.... Whilst it's no news admitting this epic junk as much admitting I'm depressed - which my close relatives rebuke me for so I tend to not talk to...

    And that's why I cannot be positive.

    I feel bad that I have nothing positive to offer to anyone. I can't inspire people. And yet I love someone who inspires so many people with his positivity. I am just hopelessly waiting and craving for end of it all, through my death. The scars are too deep. They wouldn't heal...

    I can't understand why

    why anyone would want someone like me. I want to die everyday. I cry every night. I cut ever night. And all I ever do is hurt everyone around me. Maybe one day I'll get it right...but not any time soon.

    Don't think about whats bad in the world,

    stop using things and make everything around you better in whatever way possible, not by force just like "I'm upset that my car has no engine." "Hey I have a bicycle, and a chainsaw, we could make the pedals and the chainsaw chain and .......... heres a carmoterbike thing!"

    Don't understand how people talk about their

    eating disorders or cutting openly to strangers. I've never been able to and when I hear people talking about them to strangers...makes me feel as if I am even more broken and damaged. Like why can't I talk about it to people? Why do I find it so hard?
