Hi, Teencentral. I’ve written here five times over, life is just getting more stressful, and I’m more depressed and so freaking scared of the dark that…I think this is my last story. I think you might be able to tell which stories I wrote if you reread them. It’s been nice going through your stories. I’ve had a crush I’ve tried to get rid of (which I still haven’t got rid of), I’ve had cousins poke fun at me, I’ve just been depressed and alone, I’ve had horrid things appear in the mirror, and I’ve had Takii and Jigoku through all of it. They’re both telling me I should just die rather live through it, and I think they’re right. I just can’t deal with this anymore, nothing’s working, it just seems like I am alone. It seems like no one will help me. No one’s gonna really help, anyway. Goodbye, Teencentral. It was nice, and thank you for really trying. Guess it just wasn’t supposed to work out.
It must be very scary seeing things appear in the mirror and to feel like you are alone through it all. Thank you for reaching out to us at TeenCentral again for support.
Development during the teenage years can be a very trying and confusing time for many. Often it feels like you are all alone and that no one understands. This can lead to feelings of worthlessness and depression. Have you ever sought out professional help such as speaking to a therapist? If you are unsure of how to do this consider speaking with a trusted family member or perhaps a teacher at school or your guidance counselor.
If you are feeling as if you are going to go through with any of these life-ending thoughts, please consider reaching out to the National Suicide Hotline. There is always someone to help and speak to 24/7. Another great option in the new Suicide Prevention hotline, you can reach them by dialing 9-8-8 from your phone.
