    Courage?

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.
