    Tonight

    Honestly I'm praying I don't wake up . I can't deal with this nightmares and I can't deal with the reality that also makes nightmares. Everything makes me want to scream and run and keep running and never come back. I even feel abandoned on here because no one talks to me like...

    Seems like the perfect choice to me,

    I am just going to overdose on sleeping pills anyway. I always wish that because my dreams are always better than reality.

    I think it will be the most peaceful way to go,

    it won't hurt and it won't be some weird freak accident that caused death. Just going to sleep and never waking up.

    Painless Death!

    I am just so tired and weary about these pressures of life. Frustration, disappointment, pressures come all at once. It's as if I can no longer able to rebound from the pressures of life. I am too tired to live my life. I want to end it all. I am not a suicidal. I can't commit...

    Is it wrong to just want to ended all in a

    peaceful way? To go sleep and never wake up?

    I am such a waste of space.

    I just want to go quietly. At least for once I won't cause any drama and hardship for those around me. If not, a gun to the head would suffice.

    I want to spend my last day with my favorite

    I really want to pass away in my sleep.

    Ive attempted it before and would try again except I don't have the pills. I can't handle this anymore. I really hope I just for some reason pass away in my sleep tonight.

    I'd give my life to a cancer patient,

    but I got to wait at least 63 years to go before I can rot into the ground. Emotions are futile, and they show your true personality, your real mood, including happiness. Why do people enjoy displaying themselves, weak and vulnerable for anyone to tear them a part?

    I want to die. I want to die I just don't want

    to go to hell. I want to serve God as an angel. I'm out of place on earth here. What I just realized is how easy it is to die, but so many of us are scared to, the ONLEY thing that is holding me back is the fear of going to hell.
