Recently I feel like this topic has been laid on my heart.  It's all I see on the news, online, with people I know in real life etc. and it breaks my heart.  Where people who are transgender feel hated by society, so much that they will kill themselves.  I don't completely understand personally what it means to be transgender, but I have enough friends in my life who are to understand that people feel hated for it.  That they sometimes hate themselves when they are either before or during or after their transformation stage.  That they don't like what they see in the mirror, and hate their bodies for it to where they want to change, and when they do change they do not feel accepted especially by those they love in their lives.  Know that if you are transgender, that you are loved here.  That you don't have to feel excluded or separated from the group.  That you are unconditionally loved.  If you are transgender, and have enough boldness to post in the comments your experience and how you feel, know that you will not be hated or rejected here.  That there is a safe place for you to retreat to, and that you will find love and acceptance here.  I have seen enough reports recently of people committing suicide about this to say that enough is enough, and something needs to be done here.  That something is wrong with societies outlook on people if they are willing to bully someone enough about a part of who they are to where they would rather die than live one more day dealing with people abusing them.  This disgusts me to the point where I cried for everyone who is transgender and is dealing with this.  Feel free to reach out to me personally if you're going through this, know that you're not alone, and that you are loved.  You don't have to change who are to be accepted, we accept you and love you just as you are here.



Note: I wrote this when I was full of emotion and slightly concussed, let me know if this offends anyone.
What gives you hope?  What motivates you to keep going when you're at your low point?  What is your reason for being here?

Hello.

I have seasonal depression and for the first time in the 4 years I've had it, I wanted to take my life last night. I got so close to ending it all, just wanting to end all the emptyness.

Words can't even begin to feel for everyone here. I've been in the closet for a real long time about my depression when I was younger. All I can say is that I know what you all are feeling. I know what it's like to struggle or to have society look down on you for being "different" or having people tell you (um, yes, including family even) that there is "something wrong with you" your whole entire life to the point where you begin to even believe it. Then you realize that there isn't anything wrong with you. Peoples interpretation on those who have never had depression just simply don' t get it. They don't nor will they ever understand it at all what so ever. That means people, that they are the one who are ignorant. I think we are lacking compassion in this society and it really pisses me off how we all treat one another. Instead of being more supportive and genuinely caring, we now live in a world where high suicide / depression rates continue to rise becasue we neglect as a human race to look after one another. Oh how I really wish I met my husband at 18, before meeting a man who would lead to my whole "wrist" issue, who forced me to have sex with him when I was saving myself for marriage. A man who verbally abused me. A man who took his issues out on me. A man who stalked me up to another state and then I found out in 2008 that he was still looking me up!!! What a true sadistic nut job! Sorry to be rambling, I just wanted to share a huge warm sincere THANK YOU ALL for being more brave than I ever was about my issues when I was younger. I have a tremendous amount of respect for all of you because when I was younger I never could have admitted to my issues. I also am grateful to being alive and with the support of my husband, I have found someone who doesn't discriminate against me and my damn wrist. Thank goodness for a great tattoo artist but, I just want you all to know, how sincerely proud I am of all of you for sharing your stories / situations. Please stay safe and that you are not alone. Thank you for allowing me to briefly explain my story. I wish you all the best and happiness will along with love, prevail. I promise you.....

Hi,
This group told me one of the users.

I have a problem. I live in my world. When I was little, have brought up me cartoon Cartoon Network. Children were afraid of me because of my otherness. So far, I have a problem with make friends with someone. My only close person to me is my plush Dick Dastardly. Is a character from the Wacky Races. I love him very much. I can't part with it. I don't trust people, after the boyfriend cheated on me and left. I feel as a problem for everyone, and for my plush Dastardly, I'm a great person.

I can tell that this group has the best of intentions, but...

Whenever I see someone say to 'get over' depression, it makes my blood boil.

You do not simply 'get over' depression. It is an illness, a terminal disease and it has no cure. And so I feel as if saying 'get over it' is just trivializing the entire situation and reducing it to a small, trifling thing one can 'get over'.

i could not agree with you more! My dad was the same way about it to me as a kid. My mom really didn't want to deal with me. Don't even get me started about my grandparents as they are just rotten evil people straight down to the core! (On my moms side only!) It truly warms my heart hearing you say that it makes your "blood boil" regarding peoples intake on depression and how we should just "get over it". Damn straight about you can not just get over it. So I completely understand where you are coming from. Thank you so much sincerely for saying this. I am so grateful that my husband does not hold my past history against me.

You are very welcome.

It's just that it makes me mad whenever I hear someone say those words!

My mother who has battled depression for my entire life will never get over it. I wish there was a miracle drug that fixed it or a magic cure. But there just isn't.

My grandmother doesn't understand either. It's lead to fights between them at times, but she tries her best.

You are very lucky to find such a good guy. Sounds like he is definitely a keeper!
