    Though I Never Will

    I will never try suicide again. I know that I will just mess it up and make my life worse, like I did as a teenager. However, I can't help but think about it sometimes.I am just so tired. I am tired of being in pain, tired of feeling sick, tired of fighting, and just plain tired...

    The Easy Way Out.

    Sometimes I feel like giving up. Let go of everything, and end this nightmare called life. I won't though, giving up shows I'm weak, I can't afford weakness, not in the world we live in today. I don't want to give up all the time,I just want to run away from my past, live in the...

    Constantly

    I'm getting that annoying thought more frequently... I have a hard time putting away the ever present desire to blow my brains out...but I'm still too much aware of the stupidity of such decision.   It's still there nevertheless.... Other days I just want to lie on the floor...

    So Many Times

    I just tried to give up on writing this story, see there? Okay but seriously, don't get down on yourself for feeling that way, it's natural to want to just lie on the ground in a fetal position and not want to move. It's okay to feel that, we just have to avoid acting on it.

    Actually I feel this quiet a lot recently.

    I have lost faith in science. There's just this constant stress and pressure going on. I wish I could just go to sleep one day and never wake up. Life hurts too much. I think, even though I'm young, that my heart is just so tired of feeling all the negative things. Not much...

    Sometimes.

    So many times I wanted to give up in many areas of my life.  I think if I do, then there's nothing to go on.  I tell myself positive things and the last thing I want to do is give up.  Does it mean I don't give up?  No, cause it still can occur sometimes and I also know, I am...

    Almost Tired of Waiting

    I promised someone to wait for him whatever it takes, whatever happens. But as time goes by, I feel so hopeless that leads me to a thinking of "GIVING HIM UP".  Before he left, he promised me to communicate with me once in a while, by the way, he is in a...

    Life

    Sometimes I want to give up, b/c sometimes life sucks. It seems like when somethin good comes around the corner is somethin worse, it's like an evil curse. You ask yourself "Why me", when I needed a shoulder to lean on I couldn't even count on family.

    Give Up?

    Giving up? Yep, it's easy to give up, but It also means surrender. I hope for an impossible wish that will never ever come true, to be a girl. I stick at my hopes everyday and I feel my life today is not worth living. I'm a pessimist, I don't look at my positive points, I always...
