    I feel worthless. Its one of the day

    that I doubt myself. Its one of the day that I feel like, I have no use. Like this afternoon, my lecturer was giving us our test back from last week. My friend (whom I knew since 7 yrs ago) and I didnt really study, because we did the homework and often, the exercise. I think I...

    There is only one person in the world

    who can make me feel like this and it's only because I give him the power to. Sometimes I wish he would just punch me. Then I would know it was real. That I wasn't crazy or overreacting. I'm not looking for advice. I'm not seeking pity. I just needed to make my thoughts...

    Unexplainable Hatred

    Its the same thing everyday, wishing, waiting, hoping, praying that he will just go away. Just leave. Or at least, ignore that I am here.   I have to stay in my room all day long, as im doing right now, and wait for him to leave the house. While im upstairs in my room...

    Since it's summer, you'd think it would be a

    time to hang out with all your friends and go to all sorts of places. But those privileges aren't quite there for me. I'm trying to get a job, but no one seems to be hiring. So I just sit at home doing useless things that make me notice how useless I actually am. None of my...

    who loves me to my core, I have two amazing children who are my world and bring me so much joy, a great sister and a best friend who lean on me for support and would be lost without me. I have all of this and I still feel like nothing. My heart feels so empty sometimes and I...

    I'm so tired of always being this weak.

    I'm so tired of never letting my inner voice speak. I'm so tired of never being heard. I'm so tired of my opinion never being counted by others. I'm so tired of always giving but never receiving. I'm so tired of being always nice, but always so stupid too. I'm so tired of others...

    DISSIPATE

    I don't find this linked to my past depression, but it's of course painful nonetheless. I go through bouts of severe loneliness and can't control them. I feel worthless, a burden to others. Sometimes I can't even smile. And then at times I'm the happiest person in the world. I...

    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...
