    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...

    Hi I'm 17 and very confused.

    I used to be the happiest person ever, everyone would always say how every time they saw me I was smiling and I even got yelled at my my coaches for smiling too much. But my smile wasn't exactly because I was so happy it was just something I did out of nervousness and insecurity...

    How can there be so many people on the planet

    and so many lonely. I smile but inside I'm screaming HELP ME! Just care...Hold me, love me. Don't just say hello and keep walking. Don't tell me you can't give me what I need, when I ask for a hug. Don't ask how I'm doing when you don't care. Don't be there only when it's...

    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"

    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...

    Embarrassed much? Yes.

    It is embarrassing, isn't it? It is embarrassing to be ruled by feelings such as sadness, emptiness, fear, low self esteem.. 45 years old and I find myself starting over again. What once came too easily, now seems unreachable. I know. I KNOW that it is me stopping me. I know...

    The sad part about depression,

    is when u burst out crying alone in your room, and u realize that no one truly knows how unhappy u are bcz u don't know how to explain whats going on and no one wants to listen either..

    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...

    Events that suck, making your life tougher,

    don't always cause addiction to self-pity. In fact a mind sharpened by adversity is a Blessed tool. Again, build good habits.

    no I won't kill myself. life is just too precious. But I'm tired of thinking about dying. I'm tired of being lonely and depressed and I'm just frustrated and sick and angry. I hate controlling my tears. but I hate crying. I just wanna burst out. rip myself apart. That.. right...

    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...

    REGULARLY PRACTICE some study.

    A learned addiction, an obsessive focus on well-being is far better chasing after feelings. I LOVE my self-pity. that's the miracle cure, the way out, the paradoxical key to stopping your addiction to "I'm less than happy!" I chose to tell myself these familiar old lamentations...

    For you who don't understand what depression is

    or don't feel it: Depression is the empty feeling in your stomach. It is the feeling of wanting to cry almost every second of everyday. It is feeling lonely even when you're around people, and wanting to be alone and at the same time wanting to feel important. It's the nagging...

    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?

    I could curl up and die a homeless bum,

    or drink myself to death, but I choose to read and write at the library instead. The wealth of human creativity is my addiction, my church, my purpose. Knowing humans survive disaster we can't imagine keeps me humble and thankful for what I do have.
