    i've ever been in place

    where i am not exist for others, place where no one wants to sit next to me, place where friends are just people who stuck with you, place where no one will even care if your phone die.

    Alot of times I feel out of place.

    I feel unwanted and invisible. Sometimes when a person talks about someone great they say soo much good about them. I've never had someone put me on a pedestal like that.

    I am broken. I am sick.

    My soul is torn, shattered, I'm needy. That's ok. Because I was never raised. I was never cultivated. It's ok. I'll be ok. I think.....I just want to be fixed in the ways that I've been so broken. I didn't do this on my own. I know that "my life is in my hands" but if...

    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...

    I don't fight it myself emotionally

    but I don't try to stop it. Because I believe Depression is a very big deal and it shouldn't be misunderstood or under estimate by any means. If you battle depression I'm so sorry. I'm here for you always. If you ever need to talk to someone I'm here.

    3 days of hell left. Not

    so sure I can even put up with that. As a small kid I never would think I would have so much pain from just breathing. Damn, was I wrong.

    "I'm worthless, I suck,

    life sucks, I wish I could end it all..." that's listening to toxic stories. Changing to better stories is neither impossible nor easy. If you feel swallowing that poison is more real and true than developing a feeling of hope, that's only because you're most familiar with those...

    Ever have a day where you want to just take the

    day off from life? Curl up into the fetal position and disappear, cry, yell, and get all other emotions out of you, in hopes that you may feel normal for a little while?

    My Life

    I'm perceived as the funny guy. The guy that makes jokes. In a way it's a facade. I use it to hide who I am. What's inside of me. I appreciate humor so when I talk to people I use it. I'm very creative. They say a poor life gifts you with arts. In a way I should be thankful... My...

    In your loneliness and pain,

    you've created a nasty little imp for an imaginary friend, as many many people have, including me, and you listen to its stories about "rotten worthless you" for entertainment and masochistic comfort, because it's hard to find comfort anywhere else. I'm not criticizing, I'm...

    I have always felt unhappy

    I guess it's just one of those nights.

    .. I hate these nights. All I want to do is cuddle up in a ball, my music so loud I can feel the beating of the base through my headphones, and cry myself to sleep. But I have to just stay strong. So really, it's just one of those nights.

    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...

    Some people feel miserable within the easiest

    and most comfortable of lives. And some people manage to cope when horrible things happen. Could feelings be overrated if so unattached to real life? Most of the world's poor are too desperate to waste time and energy indulging in how they feel. Try getting neutral. Just try...

    After my mother died,

    the deepest lesson I learned was: Perspective is Key. Were we to focus exclusively & long enough on the fact that we'll all die, we'd all go truly psychotic. So we're all hustling ourselves to some extent, or living on faith as some put it. And we can choose the stories to tell...

    I'm so depressed and lonely right now.

    Lost any joy I had with whatever games I own. And nothing nice to watch on TV. No friends or girlfriend to call. Nothing to do, just lying on my bed trying to decide whether to sleep or get up and do something. Why am I typing this? don't know, something to do I suppose.

    Telling someone with depression to "just be

    happy" or "just smile" is like tossing a kid with no arms into a lake and saying "just swim"
