#1 Tired at the end of the day.

Feeling like your batteries have worn out. -Tiny Dynamine

#2 Hurting yourself to please others.

#3 A lie for all to gawk at.

This is reality. Look at people’s social media accounts. People post the best parts of them online and try to hide the negatives. Denial is almost built into our systems. It’s disgusting.

There’s no need to share every private thought and event that goes on in your lives, but don’t make your life seem like all fairy tales and happiness. It’s a lie then… -Amy John

#4 Fading away.

#5 Time doesn’t stop for anyone.

Death is inevitable. You’ve seen others go through it, you should know your time is coming. But I don’t think you should live with a noose around your neck.

Instead, take it off and use it as a swinging rope into death when you’ve full and well completed everything you’ve wanted to and lived life to your fullest. Your hands aren’t tied for a reason. Take control. -Amy John

#6 What depression feels like.

Look at the shadow… it seems that his own chipped parts are casting that chipping shadow. Maby it meens that we are our greatest enemies. -Georgiene Kröppel

Cannot function without that chemical push. -Janina Prado

Suicide is considered spineless. So here the spine itself is the noose. -lenthu

Trying to save what’s meant to be gone. -Mystic Carnage

Hoping for the parents you never had. Wanting a complete family… -Cringeworthy Potato

False freedom from our worries at the expense of who we are. -Anon Anonymous

Giving all of yourself to others.. exhausted.. draining yourself to death to please people. -Ashley Mayes

#28 Painful breaths each time.

#29 The beautiful music of death.

Sometimes music is what makes you forget about everything else. -Mystic Carnage

Surrounded by airheads, the girl who isn’t an airhead has the shadow of an airhead wich means she’s faking that she’s an airhead. -Mystic Carnage

#33 The last bit of light cant help.

Being carried away by the darkness in life, clinging on to the small amount of hope. -Cringeworthy Potato

Looking at your tree of life from a distance can overshadow life itself. You’ll be contemplating life instead of living life. -Beth Sprooten

#42 The music of loneliness.

Loneliness to the point of imagining they’re there. -Cringeworthy Potato

#44 Drinking the night.

The night owl. Or insomnia, depending on how early you have to get up in the morning. -Kristin Connon

#45 Another perfect child to fit into society.
