    I've been thinking this

    for years for someone who I love the most but I'm still don't know how. Seeing someone you care so much dying slowly for years is hurting.

    Sometimes , when my depression gets bad,

    I wish I could exchange my life for another that is dying and has loved ones who will be hurting. Like a young child, or a father, mother, sister, brother. I wish I could exchange it for someone who wants to live 100% and deserves it more then me.

    If in the verge of death,

    someone I loved and cared about died in front of me I won't be able to take it. I will be so heartbrokened and can't live life anymore. If I die the person I love or care will get a chance to live and I'll be happy.

    If it were possible to turn off my life

    for someone else's to get saved I would definitely do it right now. I see no bright future for me. It I could bring someone back to life and have me dead I would too. I'm just so tired of myself. Of never being enough. Of my freaking life.

    I honestly believe I have a low sense of

    self-preservation, if I love anyone enough I do believe I would give up my life to save theirs. It's not that I want to die or I am suicidal or anything, but for some reason if it came down to it. I would take a beating, a knife to the chest, a bullet for anyone that I truly...

    I came close a few times in my life already.

    But if I knew I could get someone, especially a woman or a child out of harms way, but knowing that I wouldn't be able to save myself...it would already be done and over with.

    Easy. Pushing someone out of the way

    And when I say SOMEONE,

    that is referring to any animal. For example, a wolf. If a wolf is about to get shot I'd jump in front and take the bullet for it, and as long as the wolf can scamper off safely, then it would be worth it.

    "Sometimes life gives you two options: losing
