    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...

    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.
