    Over the past few days I have been seriously

    thinking about suicide, (first time in about 2 months). What changed? Why all of a sudden do I feel this way? Why does everything seem as though it has no point? Why have I stopped caring about just about everything? Well it's quite simple, I came to the realization that I don't...

    but it might be better off. I put things out there and get vulnerable and hurt sometimes.

    when I do tell someone I'm depressed. That I am not okay. I just can't talk about it, so instead I usually write it all down.

    I keep most things to myself

    because if people knew the kind of thoughts I had, yeah, I'd no longer be welcomed in society. Would probably be locked up in a questionably-run institution. Because my thoughts are terrible.

    that I don't mind anyone else to know. If I can't tell someone, I don't tell anyone. It makes me think twice before speaking. How's that bad? If more people thought before speaking, think of how nice that would be. Because of this trait many nosey or gossipy people don't...
