    An Everyday Wish

    Ohh how I wish that I was never born, life would have been so much easier.  Constant rejection, always feeling like a failure and a loser.  The whole world looks at you like your crap on their shoe.  Why was I born anyway when im so meaningless.

    Sometimes

    Sometimes, Just sometimes, I wish I’d never been born! Life’s been hell! And anyway, What’s the point of living? Life’s been hell!

    Why Wasn'T I Aborted?

    It's always strange when the topic of abortion comes up. I defend a woman's right to choose what happens with her body, and I argue that making it illegal won't keep it from happening. What I don't say, what I'm always thinking, is that I wish my mother had aborted me. I envy...

    I Dunno

    The things I hate in this world are all too real, and the things I love are all too often an illusion. I suppose that’s partly my fault. If I was given the choice to disappear right now and be totally forgotten, no one remembering my existence, I just might have to take...

    selfish thoughts

    Life's too much of a hassle.

    It's like the perpetual running on a hamster wheel. Utterly tiring, and you have to struggle just to keep up with it. Most days I just wish I were dead honestly. Life is just an endless struggle signifying nothing. In the end, whether now or 100 years from now, you will be dead...

    I grew up with these sayings drilled into my

    mind by my mother. "You're my future. I only trust in you. You are my everything" "When you grow, you have to take care of me. And buy me everything I need." "When you grow up, you have to take care of your 10 year younger brother because I'll be too old to provide for him...

    Thanks, But No Thanks

    I don't mean to be nihilistic. Life has meaning for most people. It has its ups and downs, but basically it is worth living. For me, life has not been worth living since sometime in childhood. When, I don't exactly know. Can I identify a precise time? No. I find that doctors...

    Non-existant

    Do you look so far into the dark realms Where daemons crawl and drain all emotion, Where only blood is found? Do you think you can find me here? However hard you try I am not here The only proof of me Is fallen bodies in red silk dresses But is that really me? Certainly not I am...

    I Absolutely, Whole-heartedly, Desperately Wish I Hadn't Been Born.

    My confession is similar to the other confessions in this group.  However, in my case, I do not hate the world.  I think the world is beautiful, and there are a lot of wonderful, kind, intelligent people in the world.  The world isn't the problem, I am.  I'm not good at life...

    If Only....

    I have felt this way for as long as I can remember.  I can recall at the age of 4 asking my mother why she had me.  She just got angry and told me I was stupid. She got angry not because of the questions content, she did not care how I felt, she was mad because I was...

    So Close

    Well I was born, but then a few weeks or months later, I had an allergic reaction to one of my first shots, I didn't start showing until my mom found me unresponsive in my crib. I was rushed to the hospital via ambulance, and died a short time later in the hospital room. The...

    The Thought Is There Often

    I know things are looking better in some aspects but there are so many times, all too often, that I just feel, wish, wonder what the heck I'm doing here. I love my children and years ago I loved my life but only a few limited pictures that pop up. Snapshots of happiness that live...

    This Repulsive World

    I am horrified at the fact that I was brought into this unbearable world thirty years ago. It was all well-intentioned of course; so many harmful things are well-intentioned after all. The first thing that happened in this miserable life of mine was that my biological parents...

    I wish I had never been born I just wish I

    hadn't. It wouldn't have changed anybody's life. It wouldn't have made anyone unhappy. On the opposite it feels like I'm an enormous burden. All my friends wouldn't have any worse lives, they would have had even better ones - without my mess. My family would have been so much...

    I am healthy. I have a loving wife whom I adore.

    I have supportive siblings. I have friends. I have numerous hobbies I enjoy. I am successful at work, and have a good, well-paying job. I have a nice home. And yet I spend most of my time wishing I had never been born. Always hopping from one small island of happiness to another...

    I used to think that the world would be a much

    better place if I had not existed. I would not know pain. I would not know I missed on happiness. But then I thought about all the people whom I affected. People who were sad, and I made them laugh. People who needed help and I lend them a hand. Would someone else have been...

    I Wish They Never Wanted Someone...

    ...because they got me. I have no use by the people around me. And that's what I've always wanted. To be wanted. And even when I am, I don't deserve it, and eventually they realize it and leave me. Otherwise people will show interest in me... but then when I'm insulting and...
