    I'm a 27 year old male, when I was younger 15ish I fell into a strong depression, I self harmed for years. As I got older I learned how to cope better, little by little I started to heal, or so I thought. The reality is over the years I've learned how to suppress. If I smile, people see me...

    Just been remembering what a counselor asked me last year. She said "when was the last time that you were actually really happy about something.". To this day, I cannot think of anything. It's quite strange. Past experiences were OK, but I wouldn't say I was really happy. It's a tough one.

    I feel like I need to die

    I literally have no other way of putting it, I feel like I need to die. I think the worst thing for me is I don’t know why I hate myself so much and can’t allow myself to be happy. I know I will never be able to change these things and so I feel like I just have to die
