Unhappy depressed. - September 2nd 2014, 02:54 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I don't really know how to explain but, everything is a whirlwind right now (if you've read most of my posts I've been having a hard time with almost everything). I can't think straight and I want to cut myself. Everything I do I fail at. I just feel like a failure and I know I shouldn't. I don't know how to ever be better. I'm scared. Scared of everything almost. Like the future. please help me. I feel so alone. I am in the dark.

you are not a failure. i reassure you that no matter what happens, you are better than a lot of people and i think that you're a nce person. I also know that you're strong and i dont think that the challenges that you face are too much for you. You'll make it through it all and you're not alone. I'm here, we're here and everyone else is going to support you. I dont know what made you feel this way, but this too will pass.

I dont know just how much you're going through, but you can overcome it. That i promise. Never give up.

If you want someone to rant to, remember that i'm always here.

Manda, a lot of people are quite similar to you in that they fear the future. A lot of people fear it for a variety of reasons, the fear of being alone forever and not finding someone to share it with, the fear of never going to a good college, going to university and getting a good career. Even more than those. For me personally it was the latter. I feared the future because I felt like I had no place in it. My friends were going off to college. My brother too. Then he went off to university and I feared the future because I feared being left behind. The truth is, we're all different people, for whatever reason you fear the future, you're a completely unique individual. You have your own path ahead of you and it's up to you to design it.

I know that loneliness is a huge factor in fearing the future. We all want to meet someone who we can spend the rest of our life with but remember that people are met in all kinds of different places. School, college, university, at a social club, book club. Wherever it is, there's a person out there ready for you, even if it's just as a friend you're looking for, they're there. Unfortunately, not everything we want always comes to us, sometimes we must go to it. If I hadn't have gained the courage to go to college I'd never have met some really wonderful people, had my first boyfriend and nor would I have been introduced to the career path I'd like in the future.

Different places of education provide different results. I don't know which country you live in, but if you're still attending school, think about what you're going to do afterwards. College or a job, even go self-employed if it takes your fancy. You have the power t decide what the future holds for you. It's up to you do write your future, shape it to what you'd like. You don't have to fear the future, you just have to be in control of it.

Life is for living, not for losing.
