i fail at everything - July 26th 2011, 05:21 PM

my parents are mad and keep yelling at me. i cant take it. momma and daddy yells at me again and again. what do you have to be depressed for? you have everything you need. we give you what you need. what made you do that to your body? why the hell are you doing this to your own family? you have people watching us. people coming back. momma walked outside. what is your f'king problem maddie? daddy put his fist into wall. i cried but could barely breathe. when he went outside i went back to my room. im not going to cut. i want to die. they didnt whip me though this time. i hate what i've done to my family. its all my fault. like they said, i should be happy for what i have. others are not as lucky as me they say. fml. so much for my break from here for a while. i fail at everything.

The first thing I want to say is that depression is not your fault. It can affect anyone, and it has nothing to do with how awesome your life might be, or how terrible it might be. No matter who you are or what you have in life, you can still be depressed. Look at celebrities and well known people who are depressed. To some of us it seems like they have it all; money, looks, fame. But some of them still come out and say that they are depressed. Is it because they are unappreciative of what they have? Maybe. But more often than not, it's honestly because they are depressed. And that's something they can't help.

You are not a failure, and your family should not be blaming you for their problems. You can't help the way that you feel. If your family feels like you are ruining things for them, that's their problem. Right now you need to focus on helping yourself, not worrying about what your family thinks. I know it's hard that they don't understand what you're going through, but you can't let it hold you back from helping yourself, because right now that's the most important thing.

Have you talked to a someone at school, like a counselor, who might be able to help you out? If nothing else, it might help to have someone that you can talk to regularly about how you are feeling, and about your home situation. You need to find someone who fully understands what you are going through, and I think you'll feel a whole lot better if you do.

I am here if you need to talk. Remember, YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE. You might be depressed, but that is no where near the same thing. You're having a hard time, that does not mean you fail at everything. The people who are given obstacles like these are the people who are strong enough to get through them.

Hang in there. We're all here for you.

A lonely soul in a land of broken hearts
