    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)

    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.
