    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...

    I hate waking up feeling nothing

    but physical pain. I hate not being motivated, i want to wake up either terrified or overly exited but instead my life is a dead line.

    Honestly I'm so useless.

    Like I its rally can't do anything right, for anyone. I resent that I was born. I should've been a miscarriage or my mother should've had an abortion. I'm such a **** up. But my parents paid money to get me and I'm not going to kill myself since I was so expensive... I wasn't...

    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...

    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...

    Everyone says no cutting.

    No self mutilation. No hurting yourself. They say it hurts them so much. Well I haven't cut and now I am getting more tired of all of this. My head hurts. My body aches for a few more cuts. And they keep saying no cutting no cutting no cutting and instead of imagining large cuts...

    Hello Everyone -- I came across this site

    when I googled "I hate my family" so I figured I'd give it a shot to hopefully find other people who can relate. I am so sad lately because I feel like the one thing I always wanted was always so absent from my life (love). I haven't dated somebody in years, I feel ugly, I...

    I can't even look at myself in the mirror

    because I just hate myself. I don't believe I deserve to be happy or to feel content. I try really hard at trying to find a job but keep getting rejected and my boyfriends parents think I'm a loser for their son. And I agree with them. I have completely given up

    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...

    Once I yearned to live a beautiful life.

    .. until I realized that I am not a beautiful person. I was born into poverty and neglected; the world of delights and opportunities was just fantasy to me. There's no horizons in this world of mine... just concrete walls. The sky? It's but a frame for the sun that illuminates...
