TW: SUICIDAL IDEATION AND INTEREST IN SELF HARM
I don’t like talking about what I’m thinking/feeling normally, but damn have I been on the struggle bus lately. I haven’t felt this low in a good while and that scares me. It’s not often I get this low this quickly with nothing to instigate it. I don’t want my friends to worry about me so I put on a smile and I keep going like nothing is happening. But something is happening. I feel worthless. I feel like I’m not enough. I feel like I’m…I’m nothing. I don’t want to feel such sorrow all the time. I feel like I’m not worth having around. I feel so many things that I can’t even describe. I don’t want to leave my friends here by themselves, but I’m suffering and I just want it to stop. Whether that’s going back and undoing my clean streak or it’s going away for good, I wouldn’t mind either one. It’s so tiring all the time trying to be brave when all I can think about is what I can do to end whatever the hell is happening in my head. I don’t want to be here if this pattern of harmful thoughts never stops. I don’t want to worry anybody so why talk about it? If I were to undo my clean streak I wouldn’t need to talk about it because then it would be in a physical form. I could have that release I’m so badly needing for my emotions. Although, I would need to figure out how to hide it. I don’t want people to feel bad for me because of what they see. So for now not talking about seems to be the best option. But then that leads me to another reason why not talking about it isn’t ideal. Not talking about it will make everything build up inside and then eventually I’ll explode and if I do that my friends might leave me. So to prevent that I should just leave right? I mean if all I’m going to be thinking about it just that why not act on it? If I can’t focus on good, positive, thoughts for a very long time what am I even sticking around for? I’m not worth being remembered. I’m not worth the tears or the grief. I’m not worth much of anything from my point of view. I don’t feel like I bring anything all that great to the table. I feel like it would be better for the greater majority if I eventually disappeared. I wouldn’t be at risk of hurting the people I care about all the time that way. I wouldn’t have the chance to worry them since I wouldn’t be around them anymore. That’s what’s best for them and me. The constant fear that if I act on my thoughts my friends will feel bad for me, leave me, worry about me…it’s just too much. I don’t want them to suffer because of my suffering. That’s not right. Leaving is the only solution I can think of. It’s better this way anyway. No point in staying if I don’t have a purpose anyway, right?
