I Think Depressed People Are the Only Real People Out There

I've never been diagnosed as depressed. One reason being I've never been to a therapist. But I just wanted to say that I think people who are depressed are the only ones who are real. I really believe that people are not all that happy as they make themselves out to be. I'm only 16 years old and I already wish I was a child again. Back when I didn't know there was bad out there. Don't get me wrong I have a great family and great friends but theres just so much bad in the world. The past year and a half I have been juggling bulimia and cutting. I know I can get over them, but its like whats the point ya know?

I just wanted to vent and didn't know where else to do it. Just know that you guys are the real people and are all worth it.

I want to go back to the age of innocence where I still had faith in the world. I do sometimes when I get an urge to do something that benefits some random person i'll never know, but I wish everyone was good and not bad.

I hope the therapy works out for you.. and for Me too. *hugs*

I always thought that cutting yourself made the pain alot more worse. You should try to vent your depression by listening to some of your favorite music. Least ways it doesnt leave scars that will never go away, and you cutting yourself isnt going to heal anything. It just shows scars of regret and shows everything you went through to make you hurt yourself. People will ask one day why you have those cuts and you may feel embarrassed by saying why. If one day you want to forget about the past, then you cant because you will always have something to remind you of it. There are alot of people who know how you feel, like the other 2 comments you are not alone. The whole point of EP is for everyone to listen to everyone. xo

Masking the problem won't make it go away. What you need to remember is that you are NOT alone and you would be suprised how many people just like yourself stuggle. Seek help now don't wait. YOU CAN turn your life around ;)

Wish I could tell you that you're still just a kid, and that things will get better...but I don't want to lie to you. The issues you struggle with now may or may not fade away, and new ones will take their place or simply share space with the old. <br />

Regardless I hope you feel better. I know my commentary probably wasn't too uplifting :-P
