Also I am sorry for all the people who are depressed or going through a tough time and I wish I wasn’t born because then the world would be better for all of you. Don’t take this as pity. Bye.

Hi! My name is Molly and I know that no one really cares about me but I need to tell someone about this before I kill myself. I want to die and I feel imperfect and abnormal. When I was born I was premature and I was 700 grams. My lunges were too small so I had trouble breathing and I was born with mild cerebral palsy. I know that I am lucky but it doesn’t feel that way anymore. I didn’t eat as a baby until I was 2.5 years old, and I have a scar on my stomach from the tube. I know that my life could be worse but I feel like no body cares or thinks about me, and if they do its about my twin sister Sophie, who was twice my weight and will have everything. She is smart and will be pretty and have everything. I am like her, but all I can hear is that how are twins if you are much shorter than her. I only ever feel second best to her. I think that now as a teen I’m going a identity crisis because I keep questioning my gender and sexuality and feel like I have no self-esteem or purpose. I have no idea 🐬 I am going to do with my life, and I hate that people keep asking who am I. I feel imperfect in a perfect world and broken and a mistake. I feel guilty about things I haven’t even done and about the smallest things I have done. I have been self-harming for a while, and when my parents see me biting my nails I feel so ashamed. I also more recently have started pulling out my hair because I don’t shave and feel so ashamed because of it. I want to feel pain and I scratch myself every day. The worst part is that my family will never understand and I can never imagine not being like this. I am really sorry if you don’t care and for ruining your day. I don’t deserve pity.

I'm actually worried for myself. I just wish my life could end, that I didn't have to struggle. I want to get help but idk how. My friends don't know and neither does my family rlly it's easy to fool people that don't care enough to notice or look.

You are depressed.

“Right now you are absolutely sick to death of life and just wish it would all end. And from the sound of things, other people don't understand. I know nobody wants to hear this, but if you want to get better, you should seek help. It's only going to get worse if you don't.

Good luck and I hope things get better for you somehow.”

Everything in my life is just messed up rn

You are becoming depressed.

You're not seriously depressed yet, but you're getting close. You're starting to enjoy life less and things really haven't been going your way. Talk to people you care about and try to get some advice from them. If things get worse, seek help. I hope things get better. Chin up, because you're perfect just the way you are.

@I don't know.,

Hii, I feel you- we’re similarly aged and I know what you mean about always feeling pressure to be perfect- for me, it’s like I always feel like no matter who good I did in something, it could’ve been better and nothing ever feels right for me- where I live high school starts at a different age so I’m already in high school- also the lyrics from the song sounded really good! You’ve got talent :P music isn’t actually my string suit but I like writing stories :)

If you ever feel down try and look in the positive side of things- (that sounds so dumb, i know and it’s what everyone always says but it is kind of true) I know it’s a hard thing to do sometimes but please at least try :’) sorry that this response is so rushed I need to finish off an English assignment :-

I'm 13. Almost 14.... I don't know anymore. I can always make a happy situation sad.
I don't want no meds to make me happy,
Cause I'm afraid of what may happen.
The stress is gaining up on me.
And I'm waiting for that person to make me finally break.
I just want relief from my stress,
And I don't wanna feel like I have to impress anyone no more.

Lyrics from my song "I don't know."

My mom said I am just having hormones going crazy... I believe her. I'm just tryin to find out who I REALLY am. I'm a teenage girl going into highschool next year. I am smart, and I love making songs. I struggle with feeling like I have to be perfect. That's what I know.

I'm chasing perfection with two broken legs

To @SuicideGirl and anyone struggling,

I’m truly really sorry for what everyone is going through. I know my sympathy means nothing and I know it doesn’t always help but I know how you guys feel.

My whole life I’ve struggled making friends. I’ve been replaced, forgotten and hands-down mis treated by almost all my friends in the past.

Please read this. It might not help, in fact it probably won’t magically cure your feelings but please read. Here’s my story:

A few years ago I thought I finally made the best friends and I was the happiest i had ever been. We made our own secret language, wrote a comic together and just did practically everything together. Personally, I’m an empathetic person who is sensitive and also very socially awkward. So even the smallest things feel like the greatest pains to me. I don’t experience attraction in any way (at my current state) but I love my friends so so so much and they are like family to me. I trusted people too easily in my past and I’d let them into my heart (not in a romantic way but I cared so much for them) . So basically I had these really good friends, I’d help them with homework and just- i don’t even know how to explain it but I was so extremely happy with these people. After a bit less than a year things felt different. I don’t know how to describe my feelings but it was like, I had friends but I was alone. Every time I’d bring something up to them they’d just nod me off. I know it seems like nothing but I had already had so many friendship troubles and past issues. It’d hard to explain how much it hurt. It got no easier from there. 2 more people joined our friendship group. One of them started hanging out with one of my best friends before- as in, the group of friends i made (i’ll call them maddie, Emma, Stacy and Chelsea for the sake of this). One of the new people was with Stacy way more- Stacy was one of my best friends before the slight falling out. They literally did the exact same things I did. I felt so replaced. Like there was a huge gaping hole in my heart. Again, this sounds like mild friendship drama but it hurt so so so much- way more than you think, believe me. Looking back, it reminds me of the song ‘deja vu’ by Olivia but with friendship of course- it really really hurt.

They started telling me they were forbidden by their parents to be near them because I was “too mean”. My confidence and self esteem went down. They’d always avoid me and run off when I got near. They started sitting in this arch in a wall with their backs to me so i couldn’t join in. Some of the teachers noticed and. Told them off. They said sorry and all but ti didn't change their attitude.

One of them started talking behind my back. In the morning they read off a list off a list called “10 reasons I hate *my name*” to all my friends and mutuals when i wasn’t there. The glares and avoiding soon turned into bullying. I went around and tried to become friends with other people but I went to a small school and had pretty much cycled through everyone. A lot more happened but I don’t wanna go through it all. With all this social stuff, my grades were starting to drop. Any other perfectionist’s out there, will understand the feeling when NOTHING is ever good enough- It never seems to be good enough for me, nothing. I had so much stress and I’d cry every night. It seems so worth less but seriously, it was SO hard for me. I know how dumb this sounds but I can’t go through it all.

Anyways, i moved schools now. And I stick out. A lot. When everyone is on their phones in lunch time I’m the one kid studying. There are people I’m friendly with but it’s not friendship. But I’m getting closer to having friends than I’ve been before. And real friends this time. The stress is still getting to me but I’m finally coming out to be able to live properly again. I’m pretty much over the moon to have realised that life is worth living.

Believe me, you are loved, beautiful and special. You are the only you and no one can EVER EVER replace you. People would fall apart without you. You are loved so much, I cannot stress this enough. I’ve felt worthless too and like nothing can cure you. But you’re wrong. You are so amazing. Life is so worth living. There are no good times without the bad. In fact good wouldn’t even feel good without the bad, it would be boring. And PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t hurt yourself. I know when people feel this, they don’t wanna specifically feel hurt they just want the pain of life to end. Even if there isn’t a huge event going on, if you just feel like a hopeless case, you are so wrong. You are so special and loved. I’m basically repeating myself now but it’s true, i promise. No matter what, there are people who feel you and who can understand and help. I know how you feel. Please feel free to vent to me if you need, i don’t mind and I understand. No matter how small or big it seems. I promise you can trust me to vent to. You deserve a life and if anyone tells you otherwise, they. Are. Wrong. I’m so sorry this is long but thank you so much for reading and please feel free to vent to me if you need to! ❤️❤️❤️

I'm very depressed and think of suicide all day long. I've been depressed for about 2 years, thought about suiced for 1 year. I started cutting myself a couple months ago. I also cry myself to sleep every night, I'm even trying not to cry right now.
Best bands to listen to in my opinion:
- Citizen Solider
- Smile Empty Soul
