    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.

    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 feel like I'm generally too much

    for anyone one to handle.. or too messed up. I push people away but I'm so tired of being lonely. It's like a physical ache in my chest. and especially now that it's summer and my parents work 24/7 so I'm alone by myself and its not good for me mentally. Im scared.

    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"

    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 depression has never been this bad.

    I'm zoning out and am polar opposite of how I usually am. Rejection has never hurt this bad.

    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...

    and I have no idea who I wanna be or what I wanna do with my life, and almost everyone around me is pressuring me to make up my mind. One part of me says to do one thing, another part of me says another. I'm tearing myself apart and no one has been able to help me

    I feel like I'm hanging on by a thread,

    i need to get out and move away. But not just move cities, move countries. I need to get as far away from everything that is going on around me as I can. By then sometimes what I think is going on around me is just in my head. I might be insane and I can't run from my insanity.
