    This site is the only place I can truly express

    myself, and it kind of makes me mad it's the only place because it shouldn't be this way, but I'm thankful for it anyhow. I'd say 90% of us on here are depressed. I'm sitting in my room in front of my computer right now, crying, drowning my sorrows in beer, listening to music...

    I have everything about myself,

    my face, my body, my scars, my skin, I just hate it. I wish I wasn't born into this world... - I'm already dead in the inside.

    Mess

    ​My life is a mess. I'm an unattractive slob who's too loud and can't keep her grades up in school. Everyone thinks i'm just going through a faze, but I'm not. I'm depressed, and no one cares about me enough to see it. They think i'm fine. They don't know that I hide in my room...

    I don't care if you are underweight

    or over weight. I don't care if you have braces, frizzy hair, acne, or a disability. I don't care, because to me: YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL💕

    Sick Of Beind Depressed? Enjoyment Vs Pleasure

    When depressed, we turn to drugs, meaningless sex, alcohol, food full of fat and sugar, movies, video games, etc. These all give us small spikes of pleasure and do some good in lifting the gloom, but when it's over, what's left? We have less money, possibly STDs, gain weight...

    Not Easy To Change That...

    What I have to do is learn how to accept that I'm not perfect.  Accept that I've been banged up mentally pretty badly. Accept that I'm older now, that I will have bad days, that I will hurt..   That I will be depressed. that there are times I'll hurt so badly I'll need to sob...

    Always have and probably will

    for a while. Of course it doesn't upset me much that I hate myself, it encourages me to try and pinpoint why and how I can change it.

    I Hate Who I Am

    I hate what I see in the mirror. I hate my past. I hate my present. I hate everything I am. I go to bed every night wishing I would wakeup with some disease and only have a few months to live. Or that I would die on the way to work in a car wreck or have a massive heart attack...

    Been There, It Gets Better

    If you hate yourself, it means you have empathy. It means you're human. It means you care so much about others that you're willing to damage yourself for their sake. It means you punish yourself so cruelly every second of most every day, for the sake of those you love, and...

    It Should Have Been Me

    I had a twin brother; when I was old enough my mother told me about him. He died a long time ago even before I was born. The doctor saved me but he was too weak. I tried to cope with it, the thought that I had a brother I'd never get to know. It was an accident, its something...

    I hate myself. A lot.

    No one can hate me more than I do. I don't hate my body, I hate who I am. I wish I have never been born and I often think that the people around me would be much happier if I never existed in the first place.
