    To know who you are you must get away from

    emotional attachment to all people till you come to a place where everyone is crazy and you can play.

    I am so suicidal and no one

    even cares anymore. They wouldn't notice if I just left. I don't want to be forgotten. I feel so empty and upset

    Life is so dull 99% of the time.

    It's no wonder humans (and other animals) like getting high. Or creating fantasy worlds in the form of books, films and games. Or even just zoning out and listening to music. It seems everyone to some extent wants to escape reality and the dull monotony of life. How sad. It's a...

    A well known speaker started off his seminar by

    holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked. "Who would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you - but first, let me do this." He proceeded to crumple the 20 dollar note up. He then asked. "Who still wants it...

    Today I sat down on the ground.

    Stared at a door and just thought about slitting my wrists. I just sat there for an hour staring arms spread out like I actually cut them. I started wondering if this was why I wanted to see my veins so badly. Wondering what my purpose was. Why I ate the things I ate, drank...

    There's no point In living,

    you just study and when you're growing up people stop being nice to you, and then when you finish school you just pay bills and work until you die. Like they say, work out, eat healthy, be kind to people, die anyways.. I hate life, I wish I was never born :/

    The Freedom Of Not Having A Point

    Maybe there just isn't a point to life at all. Humans have decided that LIFE had to have a point. So all of these human things-your career, relationships, material posessions (sp.?), all of that ****, but does it really matter all that much? We are all going to die. This is not...

    I am actually considering suicide.

    Seriously . Again. This time, knowing that I can have a better life. Last time I thought it wasn't possible. This time , it's only because of ego.

    Lately I've been wondering this.

    I simply do not see the ponit in living at all. All we are doing is using up oxygen, and unecessarily taking up space that could be used for something much more important than us. We are simply an irrelevant species that deserves to die off, and I hope we do.

    Your skin isn't paper,

    don't cut it. Your face isn't a mask, don't cover it. Your size isn't a book, don't judge it. Your life isn't a film, don't end it. You are beautiful and you don't need to do this to yourself.

    Right and wrong. We are taught to differentiate
