I Am Wondering What the Point In Living Is

you know , the two comedians that I thought were hilarious both committed suicide. Isn't that weird. 4,376 People

    The Freedom Of Not Having A Point

    Maybe there just isn't a point to life at all. Humans have decided that LIFE had to have a point. So all of these human things-your career, relationships, material posessions (sp.?), all of that ****, but does it really matter all that much? We are all going to die. This is not...

    Living Out Of Obligation

    I just got out of class. We had to do a quick project/conversation in pairs(language class). being that there was an odd number of students in class today, I just sort of stood there. I tried speaking to someone but was ignored and everyone around me spoke as If I wasn't even...

    I'm still trying to figure this out everyday,

    every minute. My thoughts are just everywhere and it takes forever to calm them down. Whenever I've calmed a certain thought, others pop up. I can never clear my head and think about what's the root of the problem. There's just too many obstacles to go through and I am...

    Death. Why is it such a heart breaking

    conversation and thought to have? Why fear death when that's all we're living for. Why judge when someone's wanting to die early on their own circumstances when your going to die unknowingly. People always say "If you could know when and how your going to die, would you want...

    Life is so dull 99% of the time.

    It's no wonder humans (and other animals) like getting high. Or creating fantasy worlds in the form of books, films and games. Or even just zoning out and listening to music. It seems everyone to some extent wants to escape reality and the dull monotony of life. How sad. It's a...

    Here's the thing that screws with my head.

    Afterlife. What if there is actually an afterlife, and it's just as bad as the current life? What if I escape the pain of this life only to land somewhere worse? When I imagine death, it's liberation, a release from pain. But my family is Catholic, big believers in hell, and...

    I feel sad, so sad. I am unemployed,

    I decided yesterday morning

    that today is the day I die. I've been nervous and stressed about this decision on and off for years but I finally feel I've reached the point of no return. I expected to be scared but oddly I am calm and somewhat relieved. It makes sense now, a little doubt, but no fear. This...

    I want to be shred into wings of a butterfly.

    My blood is a velvet coat, covering my last reminiscence of shame. I walk into a hall, the wooden pathway growing thinner, darker. Many doors, though no windows. Maybe, just maybe, I'll fall to the hands of a door trap, knocking the life out of my body.

    I mean. You are really insignificant.

    You just spend time preparing yourself for a boring life and school, and just bs your way through most of it. Ultimately, you are just preparing yourself to die.
