    What Point In A Person'S Life Where Need To End It?

    I often wonder when I read stories about depression and PTSD and other disorders. Its a highly complicated situation where the one who is trying to sort this out has so many layers of pain, memories of things that happened in the past. Depression is something that stems from...

    With Some Exceptions.

    If someone hurts me, I won't hurt when they do. When I say "hurt me" I don't mean saying something sort of mean. I mean when someone completely crushes you. I don't care if they get hurt. They had it coming. I wonder who I hurt to deserve to be in pain... Probably a lot of...

    I see so many woman who enjoy suffering.

    They hate and generate it out to everyone around them. Why do woman get turned by S&M? Just look at the sales of Fifty Shades Of Grey. Good men do not want to hurt, and yes there are many of us.

    There are so many people

    who are suffering. I hate to see them suffer and often feel helpless for not being able to help them in anyway. I wish I could take everyone's pain so that no one has to suffer. I get emotional reading about people who are depressed,suicidal, severely ill, poverty stricken...

    That hurting is a sample of the hurt going on

    in others. That sample is given to you so you can try to untie it and cure it. I do this whenever I realize it.

    Hurt When I Know Others Are In Pain

    I Hurt When I Know Others Are In Pain because either I caused their pain or they don't deserve the pain even though they might be the worst person ever.Pain is by far the worst feeling and I've felt it for a long time and it's crazy to see someone else suffer too.

    It's Had To Detach Myself From The Suffering Of Others

    I wish the world was filled with rose colored

    glasses. I wish that everyone could find their own happiness in life. Emotional ups and downs take tolls on everyone. It makes me hurt when I see others in need of just a small piece of happiness in their lives.

    I feel like my friends

    and family each have so many reasons to hurt. My aunt died recently and although it was hard for me to lose her, it was even harder to watch my mom go through her grief. I can't tell the people that count on me how much it hurts me to know their pain, so I feel like this is the...

    Going through school to be a counsellor

    for Trans* people who have been abused or have addictions is something I really want to do. Though when people are in pain, I can't help but carry their burden with them.

    Sad And Helpless

    I feel so sad and helpless when I know my friends are suffering for what seems to be selfish motivations on the part of others. It saddens me that there is absolutely nothing I can do to help or change the situation. Why can't people just be kind to each other?

    My Brother Michael

    He was three years younger than me but we were in tune together more than we were with all the others. I don't know what it was, it just was. We were the only two with auburn hair, the others were all blondes. Maybe that was it.... No matter how far apart from each other we were...

    He is everything to me

    and I cannot see him in pain. We live apart and I cannot be there for him. If I were, I'd take him in my arms and let him know he's cared for. I can't make the pain stop or go away but I can let him know he is loved. I don't know how long his heart will be broken of how long...
