I've been like this for years now and I've tried my best to get over it. Always thinking that it was all In my head and I'll get over it but it just happens a lot and I can't help it. Today I couldn't even get out of bed.
I have marks on my body and my friends have seen it but they don't say anything about it. They asked about it but then quickly dimiss it when I give them a bull shit excuse. I regret it and I'm never going to harm myself ever again. I promise. It's gotten bad lately but I will never hurt myself anymore.
Nobody knows how I feel. Nobody asks. It's better like that I guess. It still hurts but I can't reAlly bring myself to talk about it. I reach out to people I know when they're upset over a break up or anything else.
But i I was talking to a close friend of mine about someone we both know. She was going through a break up and I reached out to her. I talked to him about it and he told me this.
"No one likes sad people because they bring sad vibes to us. And then we try talking to them, they don't want to.."
that just makes me feel like a burden if I ever open up to someone...

For me personally, I enjoy giving my two cents and hearing people out. I am not one to get depressed as I tend to think from a very rationale point of view so I don't get what you're (or anyone else is) going through personally, but I do many people who have gone through similar things and I do like to help. I'd rather listen to as you say "sad people" and help ease their burden, rather than them take it all on by themselves and potentially never get out of that mindset of sadness.3

Depression is a hard burden to carry... because it is often only really alleviated by others carrying the pain with us... Empathy is not the cure, but it does being intense relief... Kind of like relieving fluid pressure from a wound, after its built up...
I'm sorry that your friends are the kind of people who can't handle sadness... but not everyone is like that... I had the same problem with my boyfriend... and we ended because of it...
By the same token, some people handle it extremely well... I have a very close friend I talk to when I am sad, and I always feel better after I talk to him... he is such a blessing...
