Giving up - March 24th 2010, 02:26 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

It seems no one can help me. They all - say - they want to but they can't. And I realize thats basically my fault. So, I'm giving up on myself. And I'm telling all of them that its okay to give up on me, too. They can stop caring and they can stop replying to me and they can leave me alone and they can give up, like I am. None of them understand what I'm going through and if they give up on me and they stop caring, it would make all of this so much easier. It would make leaving easier. I want to leave. I want them to tell me they don't care and that they've given up and that I don't deserve help, because they're right, I don't deserve it. I waste their time and use up time someone who will actually utter more than three words in an hour could have and its not fair of me. I can't do this anymore. No one gets it and no one seems to want to get it. I'm giving up on myself, they can too.

Hey Taylor,

I totally understand what you are going through, you sound like me three or four years back. I felt like nobody should be there for me and if they would just leave me alone, that would give me the proper reason to give up. But instead of looking at the people who are around you and obv. care and love in a negative light as somebody to push away, why not see how lucky you are and embrace there love and give them the chance to help you! I know it doesn't seem like anybody understands you and nobody knows exactly what you are going through because nobody is you but that doesn't mean they don't understand a little bit, everybody has been through hard times in life, and they want to help, so let them. People who truely care are never going to give up on you or leave you, no matter how hard you push them, they might not always come to you first but that's because they want to give you space. But they will always be there and I would embrace that while you can, and get the proper help. You can have happy and good life, but you have to let yourself get that help. If you can't talk, maybe you could right them a letter or something explaining everything thourgly! please don't give up, you have so much good in you and so much life left to live!

I know I must be the billionth one to say this to you, but don't give up. People aren't giving up because they care about you and believe in you. If they didn't think you could get through this, they would give up, but they know you can. Do you know why these people aren't helping you? Do you know what you need? If so, tell them. But there is no need to give up, everything will be okay. If you can, try to open up a little more. I know how hard it can be to talk but once you let things out, it feels better to have them off your chest. Don't give up on yourself. BELIEVE in yourself. Change your thoughts. Tell yourself you will feel better and tell yourself how. Your mind is a huge part of how your body feels. If you can change your thoughts, you can change your emotions and actions. They are all connected. But you have to have faith in yourself and know you can do it. I'm always here to talk. Don't hesitate to PM me.


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.
