    I feel you, every day I feel this not need to be here in this life and world. I don't understand why I have to be here if no one needs me, I'm scared and worthless and invisible and no one understands and I feel like I am stuck in this deep dark pitch black void that I have fallen into and I will never be able to get out of it. I am not needed, just like how you felt. No one needs me here, no one cares, I am not good enough to be needed in this death of a life. Life is literally death so why do I need to be here? why would I be made just to suffer in pain and darkness in this life? I don't want to be here. All it is pain and suffering and when people say It will get better, it will never get better because those are the people that do not understand what you are going through of just not existing in this world. Why do I need to exist if no one cares about me? I am worthless. I am invisible, I don't exist. Just leave. I don't need to be here. Only if something pushes me over the top and deeper into the void a lot, I will do it, but right now I am too scared and too much of a coward to go through with it.

    My best friend knows that I cut and so does our group, so now she's doing this thing where she looks at our wrists everyday. But she cuts too….

  • Anhel Ita

    Very nice,But I right now I feel like I’m not alone in the comment section that’s why I’m saying this.. I feel suddenly drowning but if I call for help nobody will care. I’ve tried to hold myself back from self harm. But it seems as if that’s the answer to everything

  • YoonminSK

    So, yes, i do have depression. but not major. wanna know the story?

    I felt bi for my dear closest frend that made me think she liked me too. the things she did made me feel wanted by her. so, i took a step and told her how i felt. she said everything is fine, so i felt fine. then at school, she told me she feels uncomfortable when i am around. so i left the friendship group that i was in w her, and that felt like my family. i stopped being her frend and only talked very little in real life. then texted her a poem that was sweet. but she doesnt accept me, anymore. so i felt sad and dark. two of my other frends noticed and helped me, but i wanted to be alone. i feel like i fuck things up now. im starting drama and, dont feel wanted anymore. then my mums sickness got worst, (its okay, shes still breathing and alive) eventually, she has something wrong w her blodd pressure, and she couldnt breathe a few times, which worries me and makes me feel, mad. i told my mum about me being bi and she supported me SO MUCH. and i felt loved again… until, she lost her job. which makes HER depressed. theres two in the family depressed. then i found out, my dad starved himself to sleep lots of times. so, i felt even more mad and sad. so i cried. i felt like one day i would loose my parents. then, my dog passed away. i cried my ass of. ofc i did, this dog was like my brother, now im scarred for life. and today, well today, my other frend had lost the girl that i had feelings for, trust. and so my frend started saying she doesnt trust me anymore. so, now i feel,

    This depression shit is beating me man 💔 I can’t anymore

  • Danny Davis

    I suffer Worse depression then him

  • Shannon Paige

    I have always felt I've been different from my friends. I never felt normal. Never felt worthy. I feel like everything I do or say is wrong. People would ask me if I was ok and I'd always respond with "I'm fine" with hopes they could read me and know I wasn't fine, and ask again or pull it out of me what was wrong. Every day is a different. One day I'll feel super ambitious & have a new perspective on life and the next 2 days I'll be in a downward spiral and I can't pull myself out of it. Mental health is not to be taken lightly. Short films like these make me feel like I'm not alone. Thank you Nathan. This was a beautiful project 💛

    Everything will pass. I live by this. Sometimes I think it's the only reason I'm still here. I have it tattooed on me, 'this too shall pass'. Nothing lasts forever so appreciate the good moment and know that the hard ones WILL pass once again❤

    I’m 17 I’ve just graduated from high school 3 months ago. I’ve been struggling with depression for like 5 years. I have a full time job at a warehouse which is pretty much all my life is. 3 months ago me and my girlfriend broke up. We were together for 1 year and 7 months. I’ve never been closer with anyone in my life. She struggled with mental illness as well and started to get help for it. Eventually she had made so much progress and I was stagnating in my depressed state and dragging her down. She left me 3 months ago. I lost my best friend. 2 months after this happened I reached a breaking point and decided I had to get help because I couldn’t stand that I had hurt her, I drove away my best friend. For a month I worked so hard on improving myself and getting better, I honestly made so much progress. I was being driven by love and the hope she would hear me out and be willing to come back to me. When I finally tried to reach out she made it clear that she wants nothing to do with me. And that brings me to where I am now. Back to not being able to leave my bed. Back to feeling horrible about what I did to her. Back to hating myself for what I did. For the first time in a while I have been thinking about ending it. Because I can’t bare the thought of a life without her and because I feel hopeless and like I have no reason to get help anymore. I am so broken, so numb. When he brought up his girlfriend in the video I started to cry very loudly but no tears even came out. I am lost, I am hopeless, there is no light in my life anymore. I keep repeating to myself “I don’t know what to do” over and over.

  • Myself Mohammed

    Someone not me but someone in mind keep telling me that you are not good enough, no matter how hard you try you will lose in the end , you have no talent just give it up. But no one ever said me that you can do that ,try harder, I got your back… Am I really a bad meaningless script?

  • Brett Olson

    I remember being a teen and constantly going in and out of major depressive episodes. I haven't been that low for years now. I always found the best way to get out of depression, no matter how bad I felt, was to focus on my health. Drink a lot of water and get some sun by going on a short walk. That would get me out of small ruts. What got me out of depression completely was creating a vision of what I wanted my life to look like in the future and then slowly work towards it. This gave me hope and a sense of purpose. Then I started fine-tuning my purpose and focusing more and more on my health by going to the gym and eating better foods. After a week of working out and eating healthy, my mood dramatically shifted and I could think super clearly and more positively. To anyone in depression, I hope this helps. Health and purpose. 2 very important things that depressed people lack.

  • Joana L.

    U gonna feel like everything need to stop.. And pain should be end soon.. Everyday like nothing can make you feel better only at night.. U feel u got your own place…cry and believe u will be fine again for the next day even you know.. Its gonna be the same. Fake smile and what I good at the most.. Pretending I'm fine. 😊 You may see someone is alive in front of you but they are dead inside.. Just still wondering what can be the reason to be here.. Still be here. Thanks for the video. At least no one know who I am. Its better stay that way..
