I’m sad because I can’t be the person that I want to be.

Lost. Am i alone?

  November 9th, 2018 by Hope Dream Love

If you all dont mind me asking……how bad are things for you? Do you have anything aside from depression amd anxiety? I havent been here in a few months and things have been…..strange to say the least since then and i believe i am far past the point where i even have a chance at being helped. However the extrememly few friends i have, have been as helpful and understanding as they can be. Im just so tired of things being the way they are now.

What Is Sanity?

  November 9th, 2018 by WaterWorks

Every time I wake up I feel more disconnected, like my mind is slowly pulling the plug on me. I think I’m sane but everything inside me is saying otherwise. Do you wish you had some Multiple Personality Disorder, and it gave you the ability to turn everything off and have “Charles, your success oriented and aggressive secret alter-ego,” take over and make things happen. Just have that Fight Club experience. I’ve been trying to fix me but maybe I don’t have to. Maybe all we need is to let go of this purposeless sanity and find some friends on the inside. Because no one …

Why?

  November 9th, 2018 by shatterediris

Welp today I looked into ways that I could make money.

Nothing looks that promising…. Everything will be effort like more than working a regular job would be. But I can’t work a regular job because I know I won’t ever manage to actually work part time and I could not handle full time work it just made me unable to do anything else, everyday I would get home and then worry about not being able to wake up on time to go to work the next day, which led to the week being me being up all night crying then going into work for 9 …

hurt

  November 9th, 2018 by Eleanor

It really, really hurts. And maybe I did do this to myself. I don’t know. I’m not convinced that this isn’t hell.  I’m terrified.

i’m tired

  November 9th, 2018 by justhope

every night i go to sleep feeling ugly, and a stupid dumb fuck. i can’t cry and that’s pretty much fucked up because i can’t let it go out, i can’t express my feelings, because i don’t know how to… and every time i decide i want to speak up i just can’t, it just doesn’t seem that important. and i’m sick of everybody’s problems and trying to fix them. who’s fixing me and my problems? no one.
and in my head is everything just so fucked up. i just can’t anymore… and then there are the songs that i listen that somehow express what …

I am back in South Africa, even worse off. I fucking HATE South Africa. I certainly do not see myself as a Saffa anymore. If the weird specimens with their foreign accents they taught themselves to look superior of only being overseas for a month at most, is not pissing me off, it is the domestic lot. The plane was the worst. You just want to grab the idiot by the ear with his loud winey, bitchy voice pretending to be foreigner while you can clearly here the strong accent lurking behind it, and the typical attitude. There certainly is no shortage of this extreme …

Good luck guys

  November 8th, 2018 by TheChimeraMonster

I’m the only one who read these posts, of people reaching for the finale. And the only thing I can think is “Go on! You can do it!” Or ” Don’t give up, you can finish this”, “life isn’t for us anyway” etc, etc?

I can’t lie about this, not even for myself. We maybe would be better dead.

Truth has a way of returning

  November 8th, 2018 by fakehappy

except the truth is seldom absolutely positive.

This time it involves a past love that openly admitted their vindictive nature. An inability to love without some kind of competition that results in someone’s heart being shattered.

And that’s not love.

Guess we get what we deserve. They got their heart shattered And now I’m the blanket they cry on about their pain. I did ask them to stay away but they work into my head.

I feel less human everyday. My heart says I love the most destructive or unempathetic people and it’s killing me. As an empath, I need love.

At this rate I’ll never have a kid, and …

Where do you go when you have nobody?

When you have no one who loves you, cares about you, wants to be with you, or help you? I am alone in this world.

I wish I was never born

  November 8th, 2018 by eternaldarkness

Sorry for all the posts. As you can see, I am not doing well. What is consistent is my desire to never having been born. My entire life has been spent suffering, either at others’ hands or my own (depression).

Had I not been born, I would not have to go through all that I’ve been through. I’ve been knocked down and gotten up and knocked back down and gotten back up more times than I can count. But there comes a time when you just don’t want to get back up anymore, when you don’t want to struggle …

Gawd, life is so depressing

  November 8th, 2018 by eternaldarkness

Not just
-my own life (health, friendships, relationships, career, money, security, etc), but
-society (hatred, discrimination, poverty, low wages, crony capitalism, corruption, etc) as well as the
-environment being destroyed (our water being polluted, thousands of species going extinct, etc)

Just…everything.

Where’s Captain Planet when you need one?

Also need a “Captain Planet” for my broken life. Apparently I’m unable to fix it or lead any semblance of a normal happy life. 🙁

Life is so depressing, me and my broken life, and everything around me in this world is also broken.

Back in the grips of utter despair and pain

  November 8th, 2018 by eternaldarkness

Well SP, I am back. I was last here about 4 months ago. Not that I haven’t been very depressed since then (for sure I have). But I guess there’s depressed, and then there’s DEPRESSED.

I honestly don’t know how to go forward with my life. My life is utterly broken, as is my health and my spirit and my will to live. I don’t necessarily want to die, but I don’t want to be in this constant horrible pain anymore.

A lot of it is situational. Heck, I would say most peoples’ depression are because their life isn’t going well …

Frost

  November 8th, 2018 by Rain

You know…I wasnt always the Ice Queen.
I was warm, feeling, maybe even happy. I lived in a world of summer days with happy animals. The grass was green and the skies were the bluest, filled with the whispiest cirrus clouds. I smiled genuinely at the public and poured love upon lovers.
…and now…I walk through gardens and leave a trail of broken concrete where healthy grass was. Flowers wither and turn black at my touch, consumed by frost. A never ending blizzard darkens the sky for a final time. Cute little bunnies turn into broken skeletons and mice turn into howling sharp fanged wolves. Predators are all …

Are there any East Asian users?

  November 8th, 2018 by morado123

East Asians countries are one of the countries with the highest percentage of people who committed suicide.

But it seems like most of the people here are of the American continent.

Are there any one who lives in East Asia here?
