    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...

    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...

    I am worthless, and everyone makes sure I

    never forget it. Out in public, I am always a target for taunts and cruelty. I am very nice, soft-spoken, and helpful to a fault. I have had people tell me that I am boring and they don't like me to my face. For example, I made my coworkers stockings and personal ornaments...

    Never learn from my past experiences.

    It's like reading an old book and knowing how it ends but going ahead anyway. I should not be allowed to think. It's this hope for something better and maybe a bit different. I hate myself!

    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...

    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...
