    I don't really have much to say about it.

    It's pretty simple - The very few moments of pleasant experiences don't make the 8 decades or so of awkward and painful struggling worth it. But it's the only game in town right? Life is a nightmare and then you wake up in hell

    I Wish I Was Never Born

    And not only do I wish I were never born, I'm angry about being born. I had no say in the matter. If I had been given the choice, I'd absolutely choose to have never been born. What a miserable, hopeless mess this life is. My purpose in posting this is not to seek advice or...

    I'm not depressed any more

    and have come past anxiety. Over each year things seem to get slightly better. I built a family a company, a free life, I feel healthy and normally energetic. At times I can really be touched by music or events around me. Yet in all that, the balance of the 40+ years struggle to...

    I'm 21 and I feel like I wish I was never born.

    I've missed out on so much in my life already because of my severe social anxiety and my fear of failure. I didn't play sports or get involved as a kid or a teen nor did I have many friends, nor could I even get close to the most beautiful, most amazing girl in the world. I was...

    When I was growing up,

    my dad was an alcoholic, the teachers were abusive, and I was threatened by my mom. This all was happening when I was in kindergarten. It is strange how experiences can leave a scar on you, one that doesn't seem to go away. This scar has been surfacing and ripping open for...

    If I Had The Choice.

    If I had the choice I would observe this planet for like a few minutes and say no thank you. I do not want to be some drone. Envying what I will never have, wishing to win the lottery. Then wanting to spend the money helping others, while those in power would do everything to...

    I dream of another world,

    a place were nobody can hurt me, this is the only way I know how to keep on living. I dream of a world where I am loved. I have been treated badly since I was very little, and I was taught at a very young age that I was a mistake, which is something I still believe. I don't...

    I'm so angry at society

    and all the things that are expected of me. I've been wasting my whole life in school and now I have 2 years left of college and I still don't know what I want to do. I'm pissed that there is so much out there that I can't do. And it all comes down to money. That's why I've been...

    Good Until 3

    I am like many of you, not suicidal but deeply regretful of my conception. I think I had about 3 good years on this earth and, coincidentally, those 3 years were from birth until age 3, the ages where you can't remember anything. When I was almost 4 years old, my eyes began to...

    Further, I resent my parents

    for bringing me into this awful world to have to endure this awful thing called life. I was a Pollyanna once upon a time. Back then I was delusional, young and naive. That quickly withered away as I got older, and especially after I graduated college and got into the real...

    If I was never born..

    I wouldn't have to live through the pain I do today. If I was never born this world would've been perfect. If I was never born people would've been happy. If I was never born I wouldn't wanna die today. I just wish I was never born.

    because I feel I can't talk to anyone else about what I'm thinking. This is a good place to vent my frustrations about my life and not be judged or ridiculed. I really wish that I was never born. I am near middle age and have had no truly happy experiences in my life. No...

    No Good Reason

    I don't want to kill myself. I do what I have to do. I fight, struggle, whatever you call it. I was just dropped here, and have been cursed by the day I was born. I will go on, but I really think it was a waste my mother didn't abort.   Updated June, 10, 2008: I am meant...

    Similar. Maybe not that I was never born -

    what a thing to wish for! Sure wish my life was different though. When I graduated from high school there was a school organized trip to Europe but my parents decided no for me as I was still age 17 and only 4"11. So I spent the summer at home in the sun and grew an inch...

    As much as I try to make the people closest to

    me feel happier, I really am depressed myself. Very, very depressed. I feel like I was born amidst the wrong group of people, and I've yet to find a home in this world. I'm always thinking about whether to end it all or run away or be a coward and do nothing. And my true friends...

    Life sucks, really, what is the goal?

    I'm angry against everybody, against school and teachers, against my father and my step mother. I just want to go away or I don't just leave and never come back, life is so annoying here, staying here is boring, wake up every morning is a new challenge, because life sucks.

    It have been getting worse.

    Like I was created by mistake and I'm just waiting to be erased. I can't remember when I've lived last. The life I've lived 26 years with my husband has been a complete waste. We aren't even partners. I don't feel love or passion for him. This is the life I chose, basically...

    Most sharing stories stories here on this subject are a lot younger than me at 55. However, I feel connected because I've hated life since I was 12. The bottomline is that life is much more a struggle than it is a adventure. There's far more pain 'n sorrow than joy 'n happiness...
