    My Fault

    I know the reason why i am so sad and depressed is all my fault. From all the mistakes I've made, to all the things I've done, to all the things I've said. They all screwed up my life. I havent been happy in so very long. I don't know when was the last time I actually smiled...

    I Know

    I usually catch myself saying this whenever I'm sad. Knowing this really can make you feel better. <br>or in my case, it can make you relize that you like feeling unhappy. As weird as that sounds.

    I Wish I Could Stop!

    I really make myself miserable every single day. It has become a sort of habit, to just sit down and think of all the things I'm missing or to look in the mirror and hate what I see. I keep comparing my life to the life of others. How everyone seems to have it all. They all seem...

    I'm Messed Up.

    I have terrible thoughts. Sometimes I wish I was being abused, or raped, so people would feel sympathy for me. I'm a sicko for thinking something so terrible, and I know this. I also wish people around me were smart enough to see me for me. Because I can't. I don't know who...

    Somewhere Inside Myself I Know There Is Happiness. I've Felt It Before.

    I don’t need anyone. I don’t need anything. I have let myself begin to believe the opposite. I have let my emotions overcome my sense of self, along with my sense of reality. I have let my fear and analyzations dictate to my mental wellbeing. I have let my mind beat me up. I...
