    Sometime during the past summer,

    I started to be consumed by the overwhelming feeling of loneliness. Even though, I hung out with a few of my friends, but it didn't seem like it truly worked. In a way, I feel like my loneliness gets worse, when I'm around people because I notice everyone having many friends or...

    Every single day is a battlefield.

    Sometimes I catch myself breaking down crying or feeling miserable and the day is going somewhat good. Of course, I know some of the causes on why I feel like this such as my parents fighting, and me feeling abandoned at school and not having a lot of friends, and other things...

    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 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...

    and just floating around in it because of the state of mind I'm in. Instead of actually LIVING life and making things happen, I'm too tired, down and anti-social to be even bothered to do anything...and time is slipping through my fingers.

    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...

    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...

    I don't know what to do anymore. I have lost all hope. I can't talk to any of my friends. It will solve nothing. There is no way to describe the despair that I am feeling. I need someone to hold me and to mean it. No one ever will.
