I'm pretty much just really sad alot of the times. I know I most likely have depression. Words can't explain how sad I've been feeling. Everyday it seems like it's getting worse and worse. I have very low self esteem which is probably the cause of it all. I'm not very good at explaIning how I feel. I cut myself alot. I hate myself. I'm ugly and I've been told it too. I just feel stuck and I felt like venting I guess. I cry most of the time and my anxiety is very bad. I get very nervous when I go out. I hate crowds. Whenever I tell someone how o feel, they don't take me seriously. I want to die. There's more reasons why I feel soo horrible but I'm not going to type everything down. I know this sounds dumb and stupid. i feel trapped. I'm too shy to do anything. I'm 16 and a girl. Everyone around me is happy except me. I try to be but I really can't no matter how hard I try. I havent been to school either. I just don't feel confortable there and I just don't have motivation. I guess I just need words of encouragement.

It'll be ok. I'm sorry you're going through this Sad You're not alone, I'm still in treatment for it. It does get better though.

Chances are you're not ugly and you don't want to die you want the pain to die. Don't be afraid to reach out! I remember being stuck at 16, just like that. I never thought I'd make it but I did and I'm still here. It's sounds so cliche but that is a really hard age but you can do it. You came here and told us how you feel, that shows strength.

It might look dark and scary right now but it won't forever. God has a plan for you. It's in action right now. Hold on *hugs*

Aw thanks. But it's so hard. I look at everyone else and they seem so happy. I don't know why I feel so down. I just do. I have no self esteem and nothing good ever happens to me. Smh I hate myself
