    I seldom feel like this,

    but I feel like everyone and everything is so far out of reach. I don't know what to do anymore. My depression is getting the best of me. I'm surprised I made it this far.

    This summer was a tough one.

    I was still playing catch up from last summers mess. I had taken some time away and things here at home quickly went to heck. It was my own fault simply because I know better than to leave for extended times during the summers.This summer I was so busy trying to keep weeds...

    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...

    When trials turn into tribulations when waves

    seem ready to crash over you a torrential downpour of life is ready to sweep you away when you are left pondering what in the world to do when you see no solutions it makes one feel like just throwing in the towel declaring life the winner

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

    I can't take living with a fake smile, day after day, with no one knowing how torn apart I truly am. I'm also thinking of cutting myself or even worse. I. . .just don't know what to do anymore. I hate being alone with no one to talk to in school. I hate being judged by everyone...

    Just having a really hard time right now.

    The love of my life just used and abused me so badly, except I still love her. She told me she would always love me, no matter what. Then turns around and blocks me on everything, changes all her contact information, and makes it impossible for me to ever talk to her again...

    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...

    Not Just Alone

    The real pain of loneliness is not being alone, it is knowing that no body wants to be with you.

    I'm a senior in high school.

    It's my last year I should be excited and everything. Instead I just feel like giving up and dropping out of school. It's not like I don't make good grades. I just feel like what's the point anymore? Maybe it's the fact that I had a miscarriage three months ago. Ever since that...

    so long. The thing is, I know I don't have it super bad. I know people have it worse but for some reason I still don't want to be here. I know my life isn't the worst thing ever and that it could be worse but I'm still unhappy and I hate it. I feel like I don't belong here...
