    sometimes my endless positivity ends up with

    the world falling short of my expectations and people falling short of them. usually I am the happiest person in the room but tonight I just want to curl up under my covers and pretend like I don't exist until you decide I'm worth talking to again.

    I haven't had this thought in a few months

    thanks to someone who has been giving me hope that I'll have a great future, but that won't happen until I make it happen. Adulthood scares me to death, college scares me to death, responsibility scares me to death. These constant suicidal & anxious thoughts haven't made an...

    The moments when I feel like why

    even bother trying seems to come often. All alone that's my only hope. Can't give up though other wise you'll let those who called you not good for anything win and excuse my French but **** anyone who doubts me. Don't believe me just watch. Keep your head up to those on here.

    I won't do it, but I want to give up

    frequently. Early on, life was pretty miserable. Abuse at home, lead me to be very nervous and untrusting. I've settled now into a complacent state. I'm able to keep going the majority of the time by trying to have fun, using my sense of humor to change what could be very...

    Have you ever felt so lonely

    and alone in your life? For the people whom I frequently talk to in here, I probably appear as someone who is jolly, doesn't have any problem in life. No, that's not me. I feel like there is a black hole living inside me that sucks out all my happiness. I'm still not over my...

    It Would Be So Easy

    It would be so much easier. I could forget about all my fears of never getting better because I would know for sure it wasn't going to happen. I could stop fighting with myself to take chances when I really don't want to. All my frustration would be gone. Maybe I can never reach...

    How Could Thanksgiving At Home Have Been Such a Bad Idea??

    Well, it was the dumbest one I could have possibly had.  Starting with the fact that no matter what, my parents always assume I'm gonna puke up everything I eat.. so to them, anything I eat is a waste of food.  And then what's the point in putting any effort into not...
