Can I run away from my life? I want to be somewhere that no one know me and live there. I hate myself when I'm being with eveeyone. Maybe if I'm alone,I do not need to care what people think and be myself.

Some people are going to reject you simply because you shine too bright for them. And that's okay. Keep shining. 💖 I believe in all of you. Every single one. You are beacons of light and nobody can take that away. 💛

I feel so behind in life and I’m mad at myself that I’m not living the life I want. I’m actively slowing myself down and it feels like I’m just fighting with myself.

A year ago, I didn't think I'd make it to see my 14th birthday. I thought I wasn't strong enough too, that my e.d, anxiety, and depression were finally going to win. In 8 days I'll be 15 years old. I never even imagined being 15. It never seemed possible, I've almost made it, I survived. So to everyone who is hurting, thinks its not possible, its possible, I believe you can survive💙

Me and my sister said the same thing at the same time and I cannot help but to feel so happy because we really understand each other 😍🤗🤩😆

I got a message from a friend: Hey I miss you, especially the way you walk into the room and light it up with your smile and laugh. I replied: I miss you too. What I wanted to say: I miss me too... when I walk into a room now no one will even notice me. I only know how to fake smile and look happy. So people could stop asking questions. The closest way to describe me now is to a zombie, all I do is sleep,eat, work repeat... Do you also miss the happy you??

Does it ever really get better? I don’t think so. I’m having what feels like just manic moments of okay-ness, I’ll smile and even laugh but don’t feel those emotions. I’m afraid all the time, my stomachs is in constant knots, I can’t remember the last time I felt normal. Feels like I’m losing it and I don’t know how to deal. I’m using alcohol to sleep, letting men use my body, and I’m barely hanging on here. I just keep breathing and hoping each moment will pass.

For today ?, No, I don't have a story 😂 But I have something to told you (yeah, you), if you ever feel like nobody's need you, nobody's love you, nobody's want you Just keep going with what you done right now, I know you're trying your best and that's it ! I don't know about all of you (who read this), but I care about you, I believe in you. So much love !

I haven't found my purpose in life. I feel lost and confused. I feel sad about life, sometimes angry. I've always had a negative outlook towards life. I was extremely anxious as a kid and never could understand why I wasn't normal. I'm trapped in the past and can't move forward. I'm stuck.

i need advice. i have a group of friends at school, and since i’m an introvert, i hardly talk to them. i always wait for them to talk to me first because of my lack of self esteem. i have a few classes with the them and sit with them at lunch, but they always seem to talk within themselves and hang out without me outside of school. how can i be more interactive/interesting/talkative towards them? i hate feeling like i don’t belong.

I beat myself up so harshly about the smallest of mistakes, it's sad. I want to change. I swear i do. But i don't know where to start, or how to change..

Someday I’ll be happy. There will be nothing to worry about. This is my dream.

Can’t even breathe i have so much stress. I feel so lost. I don’t feel anything but worries and sadness. I just want a break. I just want someone. I just want some sort of happiness. I’m tired of saying and typing the same things. I’m tired of the same food. I’m tired of the same places. Tired of the same problems. I’m so so so tired. Jesus I’m so tired. God I’m so tired
