    Born The Wrong Way...

    You will laugh, you will judge me, you won't understand... But still I want to write it. It began when I was little, I was only five and I already hated myself. I hated the fact that looking in the mirror was painful. I was looking at myself and thinking 'this is not me!'. I...

    No guy wants me, no one likes me,

    and I HATE IT! I'm always there for them but they aren't there for me! :( Why do I bother to live when no guy finds me beautiful and wants me? What the **** is wrong with me? :(

    My friends often make fun of me.

    They say they're joking but it really hurts me. I don't want to tell them that because they'll laugh about it and keep doing it. They laugh about my insecurities. it hurts a lot.

    I had dropped a glass

    and my father expressed his disappointment more than once. I risked cutting myself to pick up the glass. my thumb is bleeding but I don't care. Things like this make me want to die even more.

    I know a lot of people are going to comment

    saying how stupid I am being. But I truly do not like myself. I've never told anyone this.. because it's kind of embarrassing. I like some things about myself.. but there are a lot of things I wish I could change. I run varsity cross country.. so my thigh gap is almost non...

    Goody Two Shoes Freak

    I was always that weird quiet kid who always knew the answer in school.  My family moved a lot and I was introverted so I didn't have many friends and honestly, I didn't really want any.  I hated kids my age for being stupid and cruel to each other.  I hated adults...

    ME

    Never Happy Endings On These Dark Sets

    Its just all wrong. And the one thing that felt right went left. I climbed up and fell down. I woke up and fell asleep. I drove fast and flew by. I wanted and didn't take. I have fallen and can't get up. I attempted but failed. I studied and forgot. I felt like a winner but lost...

    On the outside I almost seem to be

    so successful, and have so much potential, but I'm dead inside. I hate myself. I'm locked in a constant downwards spiral of *********** and self-doubt, all while people tell me how great I am and how much I mean to them. I hate this, I just want to escape and everyone to realise...

    Sometimes I wish I could cry,

    only the tears can't be found. I'm surrounded by a thousand screams, but I can't hear a single sound. I'm walking through a land of darkness, without even a flashlight. I'm hit by a thousand fists, and I've forgotten how to fight. I know that I need to breathe, but my...

    I legitimately hate myself.

    I just feel like a pathetic loser. I cried so hard last night that I actually collapsed. I'm buckling under the stress of work and school. And if I can't handle this, what makes me think I will be able to work and plan a wedding? Work and have kids? I feel so sick and worthless...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    For so many reasons. For being part of the
