    No. It was never like me.

    To escape conversations. To walk around the school alone in free time. To talk with nobody. Not even myself. To get irritated with the slightest of the things. To rant about every ******* thing. To not even see the good. To cry silently. To yearn for something but never voice...

    Relationships are never a permanent solution to

    loneliness. Loneliness remains consistent even when you are together but it's simply hidden. It's waiting to unleash, ready to force its will upon you like a spring being compressed. Over time I've learned this is a natural reaction that I can identify. Feeling sad is part of...

    Sometime during the past summer,

    I started to be consumed by the overwhelming feeling of loneliness. Even though, I hung out with a few of my friends, but it didn't seem like it truly worked. In a way, I feel like my loneliness gets worse, when I'm around people because I notice everyone having many friends or...

    The thing with depression is

    that unless you have it, or have had it, you can never fully understand what it is like. This is my way of explaining it. Depression is like you have been thrown into the middle of the ocean, but you've never learnt how to swim. There are people around you screaming at you to...

    I have completely fallen apart.

    I don't know what to do anymore. I have lost all hope. I can't talk to any of my friends. It will solve nothing. There is no way to describe the despair that I am feeling. I need someone to hold me and to mean it. No one ever will.

    Hope?

    Loneliness is one of the more constricting emotions I experience. It’s the emptiness of being invisible in a room full of people. It’s the desolate feeling of struggling without stirring compassion. I see people move forward with their lives and I see those who are involved...

    How I Beat Depression

    First off, I want to say that I'm not a doctor, nor would I want to be. More and more, it just seems they are pawns of Big Pharma, handing out prescriptions like candy. This is NOT right! Our bodies, minds, and spirits are nourished by food, exercise, interaction with others, and...
