Why am I still here? My life has no meaning. All these bad days just all add up. I feel like I’m dreaming. I WISH I was dreaming...so I can just open my eyes and feel nothing but joy...but then my life would be a lie...because I feel anything but...all I wanna do is die... I’m just stuck in a rut...a rut called life...where all I think about is ending it all, and picking up the knife...the knife that’ll end all my sorrow...the knife that won’t make me worry about tomorrow...because tomorrow I would wake up in Heaven...and be rid of all my depression...I’d be rid of all my pain...then nobody would ever hurt me again.

This is a very emotional piece. It's actually something I can really relate to. I really hope things are okay. Times like this you really wish you had someone to talk to. Also there are times you just want to stew in your own funk.

I try to use my writing to escape into a happier place. Well I have to say suicide is not the answer, even though it might sound like the easier way out. I suggest just talking to anyone willing to listen, even if they are a stranger. Just letting everything out can sometimes feel so good.

Hi Rachel, This is another sad, emotional piece. You are still here because you have a purpose. Your life has meaning. You have to find it. Suicide is not the answer. Giving up is not the answer. Life is tough. It's hard to get thru especially when you feel you are alone. I don't know how old you are, but find someone to talk to. If you are a student, seek out a counselor. If you are not, go to the nearest hospital. If you can't do either, then at the very least, call this number to talk to someone: 1-800-273-8255 . Please keep in touch; private message me if you want.
Keep writing. You are special. You matter. Your life matters.
