    I am writing this. Cause I wanna die.

    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...

    I went to the graveyard yesterday.

    It was my mommy's birthday and I brought flowers for mommy's and daddy's grave. After I placed down the flowers I started to talk to my mommy and daddy about the things that I experiences lately. People were looking at me with sad faces. And were talking quietly. They said...

    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...

    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...

    May we awake every morning relishing a few

    moments warm secure and depression-free, before painful memories return to change us back to that less-healthy state. I fight depression building on those remembered moments of morning calm... because I know that's my true heart finally getting through the habitual noisy whining...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    REGULARLY PRACTICE some study.

    A learned addiction, an obsessive focus on well-being is far better than chasing after feelings, which is also an addiction. I finally admitted: I LOVE my self-pity! That's the miracle cure, the way out, the paradoxical key to stopping your addiction to "Oh no! I'm less than...

    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 hate myself so much. My childhood & blame just eats at me... And destroys everything, including my peace of mind. I just want to rest. You know really rest. I don't want to kill myself. I do but I don't. I just don't see myself ever loving me.. It's such a struggle to breathe...

    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"

    Y'know the Bre'er Rabbit story of the tar baby?

    You can choose not to fight it & realize it's a fake. Is the first feeling you notice necessarily truest? I've learned WELL-BEING can be a choice more easily as you REGULARLY PRACTICE some study. Thankfully not proudly, your friend.

    since I was 13, I'm 25 now. Everybody always says thing won't be this way forever. I'm starting to feel that line is a bunch of bull. I'm really getting tired of this fight. I'm ready to stop fighting, it really isn't worth it anymore.

    Hope?
