Default I'm in a stinking funk that's feeding on regret and the "good times"

How many times have you asked yourself, "What's wrong with me?" Yeah, probably too many times to count. In a way, I know how I ended up like this- so annoyed with how I've lived for the past year- not really living life to the fullest but rather just trying to get through each day. At times, I did enjoy life but other times I thought about not living. I feel like such a coward. I can't own up to my emotions, and I'm a girl. I honestly feel so weak. Clearly, I'm depressed but I just can't say it out loud. I hate when people take it lightly. I might be being a little dramatic but I feel so troubled. I have so many questions that if you locked me in an empty room I would just keep thinking, dozing off, thinking (fuming, frowning), whatever. How do you get over regret, things you wish you could take back or relive, that you keep replaying over and over again? How do you stop being sad about the happy kid you used to be and believe that you can still be happy as a teenager and in the future after being depressed and feeling so empty inside? It has to be possible. Well, anyways that's just me rambling on in my sad state. I wasn't really specific but I guess that's just another way in which I am a coward. I just find it so hard to open up. That's just me. I can't just talk about my life like so many people on here can. First off i think it's because I'm not so unfortunate or underprivileged and then I feel really guilty about being sad when other people have actual reasons, but often depression just grows out of confusion especially when you're a teenager and you're growing up, right? It sucks but I can't change what has happened...yet somehow I still wish I could...

sorry you're feeling so bad :(

try not to think that because you're problems arent as bad as some people in the world your feelings are any less important. theyre as important as anyone elses, try not to feel too guilty about it.

hope you can feel better soon :)

Regret is hard to deal with sometimes. I find that when I begin to regret everything, old wounds from years ago return and I have to live in a hell for awhile until the regrets go away and I accept who I am again - the person that made all those 'wrong' decisions.

It takes a certain frame of mind to keep on regretting things, so I usually try to avoid getting in that frame of mind in the first place. But time usually does the trick for me. Time and whatever else I can think of to make things easier. Music, long showers, etc.
