    I feel like I don't deserve to be happy,

    anything good that comes into my life, I always know it will come to an end. So I always expect the worst to happen, and I subconsciously end any happiness early because I feel as though I'm living a fake life. No matter what joy comes into my life, the sadness always comes back...

    I have been fighting Depression,

    Suicidal thoughts/actions, and self-harming every single day since I was in eighth grade. Which was about six years ago. I started to self-harm when bullying got to out of hand at the new school I was going too. I then started to become more addicted to the feeling of it on my...

    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...

    I live in a dark dark place.

    There's no way out of the darkness. The harder I try the deeper I sink. Nothing brings me out. I don't think anyone knows or maybe they just don't care. I stay quiet and in my room as much as possible lost in my own thoughts. I look for ways out. I don't have any friends. I can...

    I feel so alone. I have no friends.

    My family doesn't talk to me unless they want something. My only social interaction other than my boyfriend is at work. I live in a town full of old people and snooty tourists that expect the town to cater to their whim. I have no hope of making friends here but I can't move if...

    I am so depressed. I literally think about

    killing myself every single day of my life, but I'm too much of a coward to go through with it. I'm sick of living. I have no friends, and I never will. Everytime I think i find out, they abandon me and make me more suicidal than ever. I am so sick and tired of this waste of an...

    I've had a rocky relationship with my daddy

    this past year. He's never had to deal with a child with so many mental illnesses and most days he just doesn't know what to do. Which makes him have bursts of anger because he's so frustrated with life. But today was so very different than all the other days. We weren't...

    I fight depression and the fear of abandonment

    everyday. What makes it worst is that I am married and still fear it. Try to explain it to my wife and she helps for awhile and than distant herself. It becoming a up and down roller-coaster.

    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...

    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...

    The feeling of depression: You wake up in the

    morning, wish you didn’t wake up at all (why couldn’t I just continue to sleep…?). You come to a realization you are here again, it is another day. The shape of your mouth wears to some degree that of a reversed smile. Life purpose is missing. You turn on the TV and try...
