I feel like I am so far behind in life that I will never catch up. Everyone is doing so many things with their lives. I am just here. Frozen. I have been a ghost for years. I wonder if that is all I will ever be.
The mentally ill urge to stay up and not go to sleep just to experience peace while everyone else is sleeping between 1am and 5am.
i never expected to make it to this age, and now i have no idea what to do with my life
Suicide is often a cry for help that wasn't heard in time by anyone.
I love quotes formatted in this way i dont know hits different
Como se supone que lo haga.
Pedir ayuda como si nada.
He caído tantas veces.
Y me he levantado siempre.
Pero cada vez he perdido pedazos de mi.
Partes que han dejado de existir.
Y he tenido que reinventarme.
Crear una risa, una memoria, un momento, una persona.
Que ya no sé quién soy.
Me siento en una pausa que nunca acaba.
Y la vida sigue.
Y ya no quiero ser.
Y ya no quiero sentir.
I don't like who I am. There is nothing good about me anymore. I am sick of wasting my time. I am worn out. I am really tired.
If you’re not in a good place today: be easy on yourself and be patient with yourself. Sometimes it’s slow or even feels like you’ve gone backwards, but that’s okay. Keep going.
One thing I taught myself was to never judge a person who commits suicide or experiences suicidal thoughts. It takes a giant force to make a person go against their own survival insticts. As a third person you can see things more clearly, but while being in the dark mist of depression you can't see the light
Being in the dark mist of depression, all you can think about is getting out. Nothing else matters despite getting a moment of peace, and who can blame them?
I wish the best for everyone going through such pain. It is NOT easy.
