    I feel guilty for being alive.

    I feel guilty for being able to breath and walk and talk. I feel guilty for ruining my parents lives by being born. I wish they never met and got married, I wish they never had me. I feel so bad that they have to work to support me. They hate their lives so much. Today is their...
