    I am introverted, and this would be no problem

    at all, but my friend..... I've had enough. I cut myself on the arm. It feels good and yes I'm masochistic, so the blood makes it even better. If you guys have been paying attention to my experiences, you would know how all this pain has built up. I cant keep internalizing it, I...

    Isolated

    I can't find anyone. I haven't had a date in almost a year. I have no idea how to meet people. I have no idea how to speak to people. Things are really hard and it would be nice to find someone who would make it seem less so. I sleep wrapped up in my sheets because I don't like...

    Yes,I'm sad and lonely.

    Nobody loves me. Nobody understands me. I'm not a bad person,but people don't like me. I think that I shouldn't exist. I just want to die.

    It's much more easier to smile

    I guess I’m going through a life crisis,

    I don’t know what I want anymore, I don’t know who I am, it seems like I’ve totally lost my sense of identity. I have constant mood swings, I feel powerless and vulnerable. I feel very lonely. Misunderstood. Unloved. Ugly. Worthless. I feel like nothing matters, I don’t...

    How to save a life-The Fray This reminds me of

    when she broke up with me. I think I thought about killing myself 100 times that day. I almost did when I was walking home. I saw this grey sedan and I thought what a great car to walk in front of. I wonder if it looks better with blood on the windshield. I think about what I...

    Giving up alcohol was necessary

    for you see... Boozing made me depressed which in turn, made me isolate myself...which made me feel lonely...and then I would need to drink to shake it off...a 20 year endless cycle I feel as if I just don't relate to the "ordinary world." Maybe it's from numbing myself for...

    Seems all I do is work

    and come home and sleep then repeat the process all over again and again. Why did they print money anyway. Money is the root of all evil. Can't live without it and can't take it with you when you die.
