  1. I know this sounds petty/stupid but I hate how people are just so darn mean. It's caused me to hate the world. I know the world has plenty of nice people, but I feel like the nice people are a minority and it's basically us against the world. I know it's a rather black-and-white way to think but the only people I see are usually either completely nice or completely mean, no in-between. Anyway here are examples of things I've seen mean people do, especially on the Internet- -Tell people they don't agree with to literally **** themselves -Call other people sub-human and say they don't deserve to live or to be respected -Promote violence against certain groups of people which include anything from hurtful damaging words, to literally physically harming them beyond repair -Not even bat an eyelash doing anything of the above It's gotten to the point where I don't want to say which side I'm on politically in order to avoid controversy. If I stated my political views, I'm afraid that someone will attack me the ways I have described. I've seen both sides attack each other far too much. It's horrible. It's disgusting. I want it to stop. It normally happens on the Internet and I want to leave. However I'm young (only 19) and the Internet is a big part of my life. It's as real a part of my life as offline is. I want to quit but I feel powerless to. I'm stuck here. The Internet reflects the world and people's minds. Even if I do quit, just knowing that people are so cuorrupted will be enough to keep me depressed. Not to sound like the elitist, but I hate being such a "nice" person. If I were a meaner person, none of this would faze me.
  2. I used to have this problem. Well, I still do in fact. This may sound corny but remember that you are special in your own way and each soul is a part of this world, it contributes to it and there are people who are really glad you are here. It may be hard to believe, but people aren't lying when we're saying that. I compared myself to others all the time. I used to think that I would never be truly happy unless I was "better" than everyone in some sort of unconscious way. Yes, I had that big of a complex. But eventually I grew out of it, and perhaps you will too. What really matters is that you're willing to be a kind person. Talent is overrated. Kindness is a truly underrated trait.
  3. I'm only 19 and I'm hopelessly depressed. One of the things that contributed to my depression was basically just growing up and realizing the world is not the nice place I thought it was. Most people eventually find that out and don't get depressed like I do. I, on the other hand, didn't take it very well. I have little faith in the world, and I really don't want to feel so cynical. I feel like I don't belong in this world? I also feel depressed for other reasons, including the fact that depression is a disorder and I can't control it. I'm always sad/stressed/anxious for no reason. I'm down in the dumps 24/7 and sometimes the feeling is even beyond just being sad. I know I should just never lose hope, but I've been trying hard to break out of this every single day for 4 years (perhaps even longer). It's gotten to the point where I'm furious. Why can't it just go away forever before it takes away any more years of my life. I'm beyond sick of being like this. Unfortunately, some people's advice to me had been just "to get over it". Then I start feeling like I'm weak because I can't "get over it" like most people probably could. I feel so whiny all the time. Sorry if this is pointless/venty, I just needed to vent and I'd really like someone to talk to?
  4. Hello. I'm 19 years old and have been struggling with depression on-and-off since childhood. I consider myself a fairly optimistic person and I like to help people out. However, I do have quite a few mental illnesses which keep myself from truly being as happy as I want. It sucks, but I think we can all make it through. So, I'm looking forward to meeting the members of this site. Feel free to start a conversation with me! I decided to keep my introduction short and sweet, but if you want to know more then just ask. Don't get too personal though.
