    They don't understand.

    They don't see how much I hate my life. They make me feel about an inch tall and I'm miserable. Nothing I do is good enough. For example, I tried throwing my grandma a surprise party for her birthday. I planned it all, and called all her friends. She found out about it said she...

    Do They Have Any Idea?

    While a part of me is glad that they don't, it hurts even more to know that they don't know enough about me that I am suffering. I used to leave hints around the house, books on self-harm and depression, but they either ignored it or didn't get the hint.

    No Clue

    I keep it from them, they have their own worlds and prefer to stay that way. I know they all have issues and just showing mine would make it worse. I used to though, that's how I learned. They would avoid the issues and didn't want to talk about it. That's when I met my friend...

    Its Not My Fault

    I genuinely think that my family have no idea at all how miserable I really am. My mum thinks that I'm making myself like this, and I get some kind of kick out of being depressed and if I left the house more often and got up and motivate myself then I won't be so depressed. She...
