    I try not to hate myself,

    but I keep finding new reasons every day. I can't be the person I need to be, I can't be strong all the time. It sucks because I know people are counting on me to keep it together and I know I can't hold on because my life is already being held together by tape. I'm trying, I...

    So worthless. What a nausea inducing feeling.

    I've had panic attacks arise from feelings of worthlessness. The world suddenly feels like it's collapsing in on me when I am struck with how worthless I really am, then suddenly I can't breathe, and my chest feels so heavy, and stars form around my field of vision and I feel...

    You ever just feel so.

    .. Worthless? Stupid? Lost? Do you ever just want to die? I do. Very, very badly. I don't care anymore. I just want to die. I don't honestly care who would miss me. I want to be happy. I just feel so depressed. It's bothering me terribly, but everyday I step out into the world...

    Even though I know I have people

    that care about me, a house, a warm bed, pretty good way at looking at life, I sometimes feel lower than a pregnant ant. No one could make me feel this low other than myself.

    I don't only feel worthless,

    but I am. It makes me guilty because I hide it from others and I don't deserve them. My best friend got mad because I did something. I told him I didn't do it because I'm too weak to be alone.He asked for forgiveness. I feel like I'm holding him back. His family is richer and he...

    It feels as if I don't serve a purpose here on earth. I just feel completly worthless. It's like I'm always standing on the sideline of life, trying to participate but I always end up failing. It freaks me out. I don't want to feel like this and I really don't get WHY I'm...
