    And I Hate To Admit It!

    Everyone ditched me last night I cried an I'm

    not a crying kind of person. No one gets why I'm sick of being alone why I'm sick of never having anyone there for me why I'm jealous of couples who get to cuddle kiss see each other and etc. Isn't it obvious? I long for something like that, someone like that.

    I am mad with myself, God, people, and life. I've tried so hard to get it right and for years I've been wrong. I just don't know what else to do, or where to go. I've talked with my mom, father, brother, and sister. I've tried my best friend, close friend, and boy friend. I even...

    I Tick All Of Those Boxes

    I have spent a large amount of my life depressed, which these days they reckon as mentally ill. Along with that has gone the usual suspects; low self esteem, vast amounts of stress, and lately, during the past 2 years, serious bouts of fatigue. Couple all that with alcoholism...

    Giving Up

    My God, up above, I've brought shame not only myself but you too. I ask you for forgiveness but I don't even deserve it. All I can do is to apologize. But will you turn your back on me? I'm so sorry.

    Say Depresson: No!

    I have long been in a stressful situation because of love. Even just a little and everything. But I gathered. I realized that I can not continue to live. After all, life goes on, you just need to join in its noisy stream.These rules helped me)
