  • The death of my beloved family pet who was my beacon of stability in an ever changing world, moving to a new state and the onset of depression and existential crisis. I sat in my room for two whole years dying slowly from lack of vitamins and sunlight, deciding that nothing mattered, because we're little bits on a little pebble in space and we're all going to die. My entire life turned on its head, I had no friends and felt the need to hide everything from everyone, including my family. I've gotten over most of it, besides the depression and crisis parts. But hey, it's driven me in school to learn more about sciences and math to hopefully get a better understanding of our world, or at least do something everyone can be proud of. Now I'm a high-honors junior.

  • My whole life for the last 10 years or so has been a low point. What's the point in life when you are too ugly/short/scrawny for any woman to consider you attractive?

  • low point when I just realise how superficial people are to be honest? myself- right now thank god not anything. I mean I have my family and friends.. what more can you ask for? there are people out there who can't even do the everyday thing I can do so maybe just thinking about them and how we take things for granted makes me at a lowpoint.

  • The last year. In them I have been betrayed and stabbed in the back by 2 ex freinds that I thought were close freinds. They even made me feel guilty like I had done something wrong when I had not. I foolshly forgave one of them only to have her emotionally back mail me with our freindship soon after. I have not talked to her since. After that I stupidy asked out one of my female freinds when the others encouraged me to. I lost her as a freind because of that. Latter I got a big crush on my close freind that stayed by me when the others betrayed me. I recently spent many months getting her comfortable and less shy around me again. Now I just want her as a freind but I'm not sure how to do so without hurting her. I don't want to keep putting myself out there with her not even giving a hint if she likes me more than a freind. I tried but I keep panicing when I try and tell her that I like her. I just want my freind back. I don't want my heart to race when she comes in the door and I just want to be able to hang out with her normally with her not being shy around me either. She has slowly been getting less shy with me. However I don't think that it would work out with us. Eventually I would soon be brave enough to ask her out but if I do then I can't just be her freind anymore and I run the risk of loosing her. I don't know if there is a way out that does not hurt her? www.girlsaskguys.com/.../q2109720-how-do-i-go-back-to-being-just-good-friends-with-her-how-will-she
    That and I failed my last math college course so now I have to change colleges and most of my units are specific to that college. I just feel like I'm waiting for something that just does not want to happen. I'm just working each day for something?

  • 2012 was the worse year.
    i was in my heightest point in my life. i had eveyring anyone can ask for. then everyting crushed. one thing after another, it was like domino effect. everyone told me that things would get better...
    broken marriage, broken family, lost everytihng.

    i had to start over -
    "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" - looking back, i am still rebuilding myslef. I am optimistic and i know i am okay. I have my health and a great support system.
    Life is a challenge, dont stay in one spot and dwell on the past/negative. Move forward and do whats best for yourself. When you are happy with yourself thats when you can help others.

      @Noxifer626 please don't tell me how to feel about my life. I also cannot feel how you feel about yours. I can only speak for myself. I'm very mentally unwell, don't guilt me into feeling bad for you because I cannot handle my own illness.

  • I was having sex with a guy, and I caught feelings. The feelings weren't reciprocated, and I lost my dignity, self esteem, and etc. I lost respect for myself. I loved him, and I couldn't get enough of him. That's the sad part smh. I allowed myself to repeatedly get hurt, because I thought that things would be different or change. That will be the last time I ever make myself too available, and emotionally open to a guy.

  • I was shooting heroine everyday and over drafting my account often when I was managing a restaurant in orlando, florida. I quit cold turkey about a year ago and now even if I was offered any for free I would reject it. Probably the hardest thing I've ever been through.
    I gotta say though, quitting heroine is easier that starting to floss. I can't get myself to floss no matter how hard I try
