    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...

    It feels like this is all my life will ever

    amount to. Just feeling sad for no reason, feeling completely lost and alone all the time... I wish I had my friend here right now, but I keep forgetting, people have their own lives, I'm nothing special and I can't trust in anybody to really be there for me... This sadness...

    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 don't have much drive and hope anymore. Nothing I do is ever right. I hate feeling like I'm totally worthless to someone. Its hard having your only parent hate you.

    Just having a really hard time right now.

    Just let me fade away.

    People like me don't deserve endings, happy or otherwise. I can't do this anymore. I can't bear this burden any further. I am so tired, so cold... all alone in this world. Just let me fade away. Let's put an end to this charade.

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

    I can't stand this anymore. I'm ready to be done with life or get the help I need. I have no money & I don't know how to get in-patient help or where to go. I just can't take it anymore & it's not fair to my daughter.

    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...
