    "Everyone says they have the greatest friends. I wish I felt the same way about mine."
    I don't have the greatest friends. My best friend of 15 years cheated on his wife with my ex-girlfriend while I was still with her. Plus despite the fact that he knows I attempted suicide because of child abuse he still treats his own kids the same way. I have other friends but after that I don't really feel like I can trust anyone anymore. For the last 3 years it's been really difficult for me to really get close to anyone because I think no matter how nice they seem they're just going to stab me in the back at some point. The saying "with friends like these, who needs enemies" always comes to mind when I think about him. So yeah I can relate. Maybe we both just need to find a better group of friends, I don't know.
    "I still cut fairly often. It's a coping mechanism for unbearable physical pain and even less bearable emotional pain. I just don't let you see it or know it anymore. I really don't go deep, just deep enough to see blood and cause a minor endorphin rush."
    I do not understand people who cut. That's only going to make the pain worse and it doesn't just hurt you. Well physically it does but emotionally you're hurting the people who care about you. Plus just the way I am, I'm in physical pain all the time, that's been my entire life and it can never go away. How do you think that makes me feel when I know people are hurting themselves like that. As much as I would like to just turn off my emotions and not give a damn I can't. I almost broke down reading this and I don't even know you. It seriously bothers me when people hurt others or themselves because I don't want anyone to feel the way I do, not even for a little bit. Some times it can't be helped but this isn't necessary. If you won't stop for yourself or some random stranger on the internet do it for someone you know, someone who cares about you. Please seek help.

    While I don't personally cut, I know that some people do it because it gives them an endorphin rush, as the original person said. I don't think it's a good thing, either, but I understand it. The short burst of pain and the small rush after makes it easy to forget your problems.

    Um... there's no point in trying to explain it to me. I'm never going to get it. Point is I was trying to get them to seek help. Regardless of whatever their reasons are fact is it's not going to solve whatever their problems are. It's only going to make things worse. I use to know someone who cut and she ended up spending time in a mental institution because of it.

    I could say the same thing about pretty much every girl I've ever had a crush on. The feelings DO eventually go away. Not entirely, but eventually you will find someone new and move on. Though hopefully you'll actually talk to the next one... Just don't ask me how cause I'm still trying to figure that part out myself.

    "There is somebody in this forum who makes me genuinely consider quitting coming here. This person has indirectly attacked me more than once. I wish there was a way to block him, but there's not. Thankfully, there's enough decent people who stick up for me to keep me coming back...for now."

    There are people who suck everywhere. Learning to deal with them may be a useful skill. Good luck.

    "I'm so conflicted. I recently quit my job because I got a better paying one, but I was sad because I had a bit of a crush on one of the managers my age that I was pretty friendly with. But, I have a girlfriend already, and I love her more than anything. The only thing is we are taking a break from hanging out for a bit because she is working three jobs and going to college. I promised her I wasn't going anywhere. But in her absence I find I'm looking for any excuse to talk to or hang out with my old manager now. I still don't feel any less love for my girlfriend, I'm just afraid one of these days I will. I'm 99% sure I'd never cheat on her, but I still can't help but think what could be if I broke it of with her and asked my old manager out."

    "I think it's crap when people come onto this thread to talk about how they can solve my problems and that their situation is just as bad or worse. No it's not. People are different, and your situation is not "the exact same as" mine."
    I can't help but feel this is about me. If I see something that is similar to something I've already been threw myself I just post my experience hoping that it might help someone out. I think it's better to try and help someone and fail than to not do anything at all. Especially on the chance that I might actually succeed which if I said nothing could never happen.

    I think that you should probably include it in your confession if you don't want anyone to comment on it because I think that some people around here want peoples perspectives on there confessions. It's impossible to know if someone wants comments or not in this thread. Except if no one wants comments there is, then we should stop. I do agree on the part where people talk about how there situation is worse, that makes me really annoyed.

    "I can't stand the university I am at anymore. I am a senior though, and it makes no sense for me to transfer somewhere else. I have gone through clinical depression here, and was sexually assaulted by a fellow student. There are too many bad memories at my school. When someone asks me if I like my university, I smile and say yes, because that is what everyone expects me to do."

    you must know something if you're admitting to it being a possiblity.

    It's kind of impossible to be depressed and not know that you're depressed. You always know how you're feeling.

    It's kind of impossible to be depressed and not know that you're depressed. You always know how you're feeling.
    Sometimes, though, you're not sure whether it's normal sadness/feeling down or true depression.  Or sometimes, you feel ALL THE THINGS at once and don't know how to explain that.  A person maybe should know how they're feeling all the time, but I would be inclined to say that they actually might not know.
    Difficult does not mean impossible.  Very little is impossible if you want it badly enough.

    I agree with @turdl38 I've been thinking about this all day but I never found the right words.

    Technically they're the same thing. Depression is just another word for sadness. I really don't like those happy pills that treat a normal emotion like some kind of diseases. Need to fix what's causing the depression instead of treating the person like they're the problem.

    Exactly, @EverydayCait.  They are NOT the same thing.  Every human in the world feels sad sometimes.  That's very different from a true clinical, chronic depression.
