Confused. - May 22nd 2011, 07:15 PM

I have a "good" (good meaning not poor, but not rich) family and have not had to go through anything bad in my life so far (losing anyone, drugs, bad living conditions etc), so why do I have these thoughts of hurting myself? I don't talk about them with anyone, for fear of them thinking I just want attention.

I'm pretty self-conscious about everything - my weight, my height, my hair, etc, even though I know I'm not "bad looking." My friends always make jokes about my height (I'm 4'11" and am about to be a freshman in high school), so to save them the trouble, I just diss my height before they get a chance nowadays. I'm also not really even sure if they're really my friends. I feel like there's always someone better they'd rather be talking to or hanging with, and there usually is (which is shown by when we'll talking or hanging out and then they'll just ditch me when they see someone else). I try not to show much emotion to them or anyone, really.

I don't really know why I'm typing this now and posting this here, as I've never really shared my "feelings" or whatever you want to call this rant with anyone. I guess the main question I have is why do I feel so depressed all the time? Pretty much the only reason I'm still here is because I'm too much of a coward to actually kill myself.

I'm 5'1, so I know how you feel xD We're fun sized, not short. Anyway, be happy with who you are, because in life, yourself is the one thing you can always be sure is real. <3
