I Feel Like Giving Up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,148 People

    I can't cope with everything anymore I'm giving

    up with life all together. I've got so much this year to get through and I can't do it. There's so much on my mind. So much ahead of me this year that's all negative. I don't wanna do this. I can't do this anymore.

    I try. I really do. But I guess not hard enough.

    I'm right back where I was. The pain inside is ripping my heart to shreds. I don't want to be alive any more. I'm just being real. There's no point in pretending. Things will never be ok because I can't make them ok. I don't have it in me to be a survivor. I just want to have a...

    I. . .just feel. . .so empty.

    I'm giving myself until next March - exactly

    one year. If I don't match in residency then, that's it for me. I buy a handgun on a credit card, and that's it. The effort trying isn't worth the outcome I'm getting so far. No pity/sympathy - I'm just writing this to hold myself to my word when I read it again one year from...

    School year is almost over

    and it's put so much pressure on me to maintain the grade I have. It's a struggle when every hard work you put in, every sleepless night of study you put in won't show up the same amount in your test. When you put in all the hard work but that hard work is not enough. You go to...

    Two things I don't understand in life.

    I don't know why God made me and why He loves me. I've betrayed Him so many times. Two things I know in life. He made me and bought me back. But I don't know why. I'm tired of the fight. Weary of the feelings. Drained of hope. What is the point of all this? Pain...
