Brendan Cares

Sometimes I write poetry and stories. I have suffered the worst from depression and lived. Feel free to lay your troubles on me or ask for advice. My blog is a judgement free zone.

In the decisive moment I won the victory over myself. I chose to live. And believe me, it takes courage to choose life under those circumstances.

—Henrik Ibsen, The Wild Duck

When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.

—Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life

Anonymous asked: Ok so I have no friends, everyone I know hates me, I have already tried to commit suicide 5 times.... People call me an attention seeker because of the cuts on my arm.... Am I worth living? I screw everything up, I can't do anything right. Some say there is something to live for, but I don't have anything. Why should I continue to live?

you have to look within yourself for answers. i can’t give you a reason to live. you will find what you’re searching for if you look long enough and hard enough. 

Anonymous asked: I try so hard to be better, but I'm failing miserably. I'll think I'm fine, but I never really am. And I don't have anyone to go to. I told my mom a few days ago (about cutting) because I broke down after a fight and she told me I was doing it for attention and needed to suck it up. Now she's acting like it didn't happen. I'm fine with that though. I hope she forgets. I'm just afraid I might just get pushed over the edge very soon and there's no one to stop me. Literally no one cares.

no one cares? did you see my url? hang in there kitty. 

Anonymous asked: School is so hard and my teachers are always just trying to pressure me some more. I skip school often but end up getting scolded for that. But I can't be in there for 6 hours without breaking down. Not even like we learn anything anymore. I have no friends in school, either. Everyone thinks I am a loner and maybe I am because I enjoy my own company. But I want something that will make school bearable. What should I do?

school sucks. such sheeple baaaaaaaaaaaaa. man i know the feels. you feel so isolated yet it’s like everyone is watching you. skip if it’s unbearable. life gets better after school, there’s not as much of a herd mentality. 

Anonymous asked: Hey, sorry to bug, but I sometimes get this weird feeling in my chest, my dad called it anxiety, and I'd like to know how you deal with it? My boyfriend thinks I should get a fidget ring or toy. Do you think that would work?

a fidget ring serves as a distraction. it should help but you don’t need one. you can change your train of thought by thinking of something else or counting or observing etc.

Fuck Israel

as I can’t sleep

despite the peace

only broken by

distant traffic

I think of gaza

the hell fire

raining down on

people like me
