I Feel Like Giving Up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,312 People

    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...

    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.

    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...

    I have six more friends

    who I need to take care of... Once they're happy, they'll leave. Just like everyone else... We're left with memories to curse us, by reminding us of all our loss, pain and that nothing good ever lasts... We're left to suffocate in darkness, searching for answers and begging for...

    I am tired of trying

    and getting nothing. I can't do anything right. I'm so imperfect. I hate everything about me. Why couldn't I be someone else? Anyway any moment now I just want my life to end so I don't have to deal with this **** ever again. I already know that I'll probably end up having no...

    I just got off of the phone with my niece,

    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...

    Sometimes life just feels like it's not worth

    living...my feelings don't match my circumstances or vice versa. I've lived through a lot of terrible things and when I start to feel like this I count my blessings and remind myself how fortunate I am. But I'm human and sometimes I really do want to just give up.
