Regret, Anonymous (16)

Recently some important dates passed for me. 2 years ago I had a plan to take my life and a year ago, a day before the other plan, I actually tried. Nobody knows about this attempt and I’ve kept it a secret because it’s embarrassing for me and I hate myself for it. My method wasn’t super effective, I didn’t do enough to die but I felt the repercussions of what I had done for the next few days. It’s so scary for me to think back on this time now, especially now because I feel like my life was so good then. That might sound weird, but I had such a strong support system and I now realize I had a lot going for me. I took all of these things for granted and I wish I hadn’t because I lost a lot of them later last year. Throughout December and January, I thought a lot about trying again but I didn’t. I felt so alone and confused. The fear I felt after my attempt is what stopped me from trying again. Now I just feel so stupid for everything I did in that year or two years. I messed up so many things and I was awful with everything. I’m still trying to forgive myself for things I’ve done to others and myself and I have problems with self-harm on and off and my anxiety is always there but I just wish I never did any of that. I was so dumb for trying to do what I did when my life was so good and now I’d give anything to go back to those times. I’m trying to rebuild who I am now and forget about what I did but it’s so hard to forgive myself for everything and move on. I have so many regrets and I just want to be a good person and be loving to everyone and for everything bad to be over. It’s hard

I’ve dealt with mental illness nearly my whole life - anxiety and depression to be exact. I’ve come to terms with it over the years, yet I’ve found myself lost within it. With acceptance came erasure

Men have feelings too, Anonymous

As a male, we have that sort of stigma that we need to be mentally there or strong. Holding back emotions so that we don’t burden others. And I know it’s easy to say “ well just don’t.” But it’s not t
