    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..

    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...

    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...

    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 am so lonely at this point.

    Everyone around me has a relationship, and I've never even had one. I had a crush on my best friend a while back, and I was dared to kissed him, but because I did everything went awful and I ended up single, lonely, and depressed. It's been 2 years, and I feel that the only...

    I feel like I'm on a journey by myself

    and when I meet new people, they never stay in my life. Which is why I lose myself in writing, the experience of life and nature. If people is all we have then why do I just hold onto myself? Because friendships die, but then new ones come. As you evolve they support your life...

    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...

    At the end of the day no one gives a ****.

    Not friends, not family, everyone is selfish and self-absorbed. They don't really care, the only thing people give a **** about is their own ***. I feel like I have no one. No place to escape, no arms to run into. Nothing.

    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...
