Do you ever feel so unwanted by everyone around you that you just want to disappear?

I isolated myself for 5 years. All because i was scared that no one would like me or because i felt i wasn't worth talking to. When i went to college, it was the worst two years of my life, it got so bad that i started comtemplating suicide, i'm so so glad i didn't act on it!! Now i go to another college which is by FAR much better than the other one - people are much more nicer and kinder, i'm getting help and working towards coming out of my shell for real. Things are getting better! 🙏❤

i don’t know if anyone can relate but this weekend i actually interacted w ppl and did things instead of isolating myself and being unproductive and i feel like it’s drained me physically and mentally bc maybe i’m just used to that?? idk if that even made sense

“It gets better!” No offense, but fuck off. I’ve been waiting for it to get better for YEARS. no, there’s no miracle thing I’m going to miss out on in life. Life fucking sucks. Maybe I’m just a whiny little baby who can’t hndle anything, I don’t know. But I didn’t ask to be like this. I’m so fucking done.

I dont really know what I want. I just know that something is missing within my life and soul.

I am currently trying to find the words to say to my father, who is in prison. I haven't talked to him in a long time, and this is really hard for me to do, as I have never had a relationship with him, but I want him to know what's going on in my life, since he wrote me, and my mom, apologies for leaving us.

Has anyone been hospitalized for depression/suicidal thoughts before? My parents are considering it for me, but I’m terrified

I would say something like just think positive thoughts but we all know that doesn't work. I just think that every one here as gone through so much and I'm just here like bleh. I feel like I can't do the things I want to do bc others think I can't or they don't want me to. I feel tired. Tired of it all. Btw you're awesome. If you read this far (most people probably didn't bc this is really long) good for you. I'm thankful you are caring. You actually read this whole thing. You're the best.

if i like art, should i pursue studies in art? or should i just grit my teeth and pursue studies in biotech or pharmaceutical science, like what my parents say i should do?

I should be sleeping right now but I'm just laying here crying in the dark, I feel so inadequate and I hate myself. I can never get anything done right and I'm so directionless in my life. I don't think this life is for me.

What's the point of telling people you have a mother, when she's so dead to you. You don't even think of her as your mother.

I can’t keep fucking doing this shit. I’m done. I fuck shit up all the fucking time. All the little hongs have built up and I’m about to spill over. I shouldn’t be alive. I don’t deserve it. I’ve tried reaching out but it doesn’t work. Fuck it. Fuck it all. If I even have the guts maybe I’ll be gone tomorrow when I do it if I still want to. We’ll find out I guess. I’ll probably post beforehand anyways. Whatever.

Right now I’m scared because my little baby boy. My Cat will be 19 in March 1st. I’m Bipolar and I know how I can be I’m not using that as an excuse and not saying people suffer but my story is I was 14 years old and with my mother on our way home from the store a Drunk Driver hit us head on killed her spared me. Then lost Grandma not even a year later. Which left me with a bunch of House stealing Money Thieving family.

My parents are always fighting. Lately I’ve been having really bad anxiety due to school work and I haven’t been able to sleep these two things are just making me freak out but mostly my parents fighting any help?

They said I couldn't do it do so I tried. I didn't do anything amazing or magical but at least I tried. I failed 😢 but now when someone tells me to at least try I can tell them that I am.

I’m finally living life for myself and taking up great opportunities academically and socially. I’ve been hanging out with my friends more and I’m starting to see someone, but I’ve always made more time for myself. I’m feeling really confident and proud of who I’m becoming :)
