    Things We Love Can Be The Hardest...

    I've read a lot of articles, messages etc. Calling suicide the easy way out. I don't know if it is. Sometimes I feel like I would be helping everyone around me, If I put this barrel to my temple and said goodbye. I even made a mental note, to take time to sit and contemplate the...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    I realized that nothing is ever going to change.

    All guys think they're more important than girls, they always will. We aren't equal to them, we're below them. We make them our entire world and we're just a part of theirs, we're interchangeable and disposable because we don't matter, they do. No guy is ever going to put you...

    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...
