    Why? I don't see why death should be a solution.

    Can someone please explain it? **** off to whatever person that has left you. Is life boring or just sad? Take medicines or drugs. Feeling alone? Meet someone. Afraid of socializing? Drugs/alcohol. Made something that you regret? Fix it, change life, be kind. Can't accept...

    Life May Seem Worthless But You Mean Something To At Least 1 Person.

    Lets see where to start... To start my parents tell me everyday how much they hate me, wish I was dead somewhere in a ditch, or tell me that I'm worthless all the time. At school I'm picked on called Gay and other things, having people tell me to go home cry and cut myself, do...
