It gets better,right?

July 2nd, 2015by Dollyx

I guess here goes,

 

For pretty much all of my life, my mom was there. It was her who cared for me and despite having me at a young age, she still made ends meet.With that being said, I doubt she expected my asshole of a father to make such a negative impact on my life. It wasnt like he was in my life since birth, he wasnt even there to witness me being born.Still, my mother being the woman she is, let him in so that i could grow up with a father.Well, that went terribly wrong because his oldest son began to sexually, mentally, …

It Looks A Little Hopeless, Hopefully It’s Not

June 23rd, 2015by AKidWithAName

I recently have been feeling more screwed up than usual. I am honestly amazed that I haven’t been asked to leave my house. I am making my family’s life miserable, but they still attempt to love me. I wish that I could be a better person. We all know that it’s my fault that my family’s a mess at this point. I literally am a waste of space.

There are only a couple things keeping me on this earth:
1. My friend and her mom. They are the nicest people I have ever met, and they are the …

I hate business ! I hate money ! I hate capitalism / capitalist !

June 19th, 2015by niki

I hate business !
I hate money !
I hate capitalism / capitalist !

The main reason is because business kills creativity & ideas . money kills creativity & ideas . capitalism / capitalist kills creativity & ideas !
There are a LOT of good ideas , creativity , imaginations , inspirations , dreams , & even good deeds that business / money kills ! simply because of a petty, shallow reason “it doesn’t make a lot of money or profits ! ”

money makes the world unfair ! business makes the world unfair ! capitalism makes the world unfair !

plus , the world becomes a boring place ! …

June 19th, 2015by ariii

This is a long story, so bear with me.

From the beginning: I’m a female, live in a pretty rural setting, was 20 years old when things got really bad. I’ve experienced complex trauma and was pretty angry, violent, self-destructive, depressed etc. all through childhood and adolescence. I moved to a new town in my late teens, got a job at a local social services agency, and moved into an apartment, which after about 9 months my partner moved into also. Mid December — right before finals week at college, actually — my partner and I ended things and she moved out. We had been together the …

Starting Over

June 16th, 2015by RealTalk30

Can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to start my life over again. Locations, friends, schools, jobs, girlfriends and fiancés.. everything. Starting over use to be incredibly hard. But once you reach that end.. there is most often, a fork in the road. And you must choose a path. Death..or starting over. I’ve reached my end enough times to realize that at the end, you lose a lot of cares. And if you can manage to come back a smarter wiser person, you come back with little to lose..but everything to gain. As long as there is breath in my lungs, my heart will …

SSRI

June 13th, 2015by vimto66

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI)

S to the S to the R to the I, S to the S to the R to the I,
Blocking my Serotonin reuptake to keep me alive.
Mirtazipine, Citalopram, Ventafalxine too,
My brain must be swimming in Serotonin soup!

I can’t just rely on these antidepressant medications,
Gotta keep exercising, eating good food and practise meditation.
See my friends and family and avoid procrastination,
Crack out the play doh and get some inspiration.

I can’t hide it, I belong to the one in four,
I hope this condition never comes to knock at your door.
If it does call me up and we can talk some more,
You are beautiful and …

Keep enduring!

June 11th, 2015by uni_4802

“Endurance” what does endurance mean? Hi everyone! I’m new to this site, but I’m sure we are all here for the same reason. We have suicidal thoughts or have actually attempted to take our life. I was diagnosed with ADHD at 9. At age 11 I was diagnosed with depression. I was never abused nor […]

A light in the dark.

June 10th, 2015by Unremembered

I went out with K again, and it helped a bit. I don’t know why. We didn’t do anything special. But we talked a lot, and now I know she’s like me. She sees the problems like I do. Well, not as much as I do, but a lot more than most people I know.

I still feel strange. Out of place. Like I’m from somewhere else. I still see the problems. The issues. But now I don’t feel hopeless. I feel like there’s a solution. Like there is a way out. A light in the dark. K showed me that.

I still have near to no faith …

Reasons to fight on?

June 8th, 2015by jennnnhey

I feel like the most pathetic person in the world. I hate almost everything in my life, and so i know i deserve it when i say i have no friends. My colleagues hate me, they make fun if me and bully me, i am not sure if bully is the right word for what they have done to me but that’s just how i feel. Everyday i wake up thinking “how am i going to get over this hopeless day?” I sometimes just want to stay in bed and not going to work not going to meet anyone just stay alone. But i am …

Has anyone tried EFT Tapping?

June 1st, 2015by donsmith78

I’m not sure if anyone has ever tried it but ive found it fairly useful. The theories of how it helps are varied but its a useful therapeutic tool and one of the few that can be done by yourself. You’re basically tapping on a set of pressure points while saying emotional statements. Full disclosure it looks sort of silly lol. Also and more importantly is it causes you to face emotions you may have supressed which can be horrible quite honestly. It has an emotionally detoxing effect. So depending on how much stuff you’re supressing use with caution. …

Still Hanging In There – Even If There Does Not Seem To Be Any Light In Sight

May 31st, 2015by Justanotherfaintstar

I was twelve-years-old when I had my first thought about ending my life. I do not think that there was a specific event that triggered it. I think it was just an accumulation of many different events and circumstances that left me feeling helpless and completely out-of-tune to the world and my life. I did not have many close friends in school, and my family always seemed to jostle me back and forth with their demands and expectations. People saw me, but it did not feel like people took the moment to look back and actually acknowledge me and get to know me. As I …

Nash Grier’s Advice for Self Harmers

May 31st, 2015by ghost187

“My advice for self harmers would be that it’s not worth it. Your bodies a temple and you don’t wanna take out on your body just for like an emotion you’re feeling. You know you can like take it out on something like go boxing. Just don’t. You shouldn’t be hurting your own body ever. Never. Like unless it’s an accident, which I do all the time, but don’t ever purposely do that. But if anyone knows anyone dealing with something like that er or even remotely close to that, what I would say is look at the individual. Don’t look at the scars. …

Broken hearted prayer

May 30th, 2015by broken123

Dear God,
I know everyone has hard times in their life. I know people all go through different times, extents, and ways of bad. But I’m wondering why mine seems to be the worst case scenario on all accounts. I’m wondering why I can remember more bad times than good. I know there will be bad times. But there has to be good times too. I’m wondering why you took my mom away. Things seem just have gotten a different type of bad now that she’s gone. My step dad is now drinking himself to death and picking up all my moms old habits. Why did …

Friendships never last.

May 28th, 2015by Terrible

When push came to shove, and I found that most of my friends left me. It seemed like they had left me to die.

I will never forgive some of them for leaving me when I needed someone. I felt so alone already, and when they left, I fell into a deeper depression than I was already in.

I guess I’m writing this to tell the truth. Most friendships don’t last. I was friends with someone for 11 years, and as soon as high school came around, everything changed for good. We drifted apart, as people do, and became different people.

We don’t talk anymore. There are still …
