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. 4,615 People

    I really thought I was gonna make it,

    but it was too much for me. I tried and tried and tried over and over but it keep being thrown back into my face. I just don't want to try anymore, I don't want to become a burden anymore. I wish I was stronger but I'm not, I made mistakes and never corrected them, have...

    Instead Of Fleeing The Absurd Meaninglessness Of Life, We Should Embrace Life Passionately....(Camus)

    NOTE: FOR MENTAL...NOT CHEMICAL DEPRESSION (while they do somewhat dance together)  Sartre commented on one of Camus stories: "The absurd man will not commit suicide; he wants to live, without relinquishing any of his certainty, without a future, without hope, without illusions...

    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...

    One More Sunset

    Nothing ever seems to make me feel better than seeing a vibrantly colorful sunset. I watched one yesterday and it was amazing, I cried. I keep on telling myself one more sunset, to try to convince myself to fight the dark thoughts and this damn disease. Being sick sucks...

    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.

    They say that suicide is bad,

    but they don't realize that when a person life is bad enough, suicide what seemed like an option. Actually it always seems like only reason to be free. Words will always do nothing because it will always cover up the pain for mere seconds. I don't know if I'm going to suicide...

    Death. Why is it such a heart breaking

    Attempted once. Failed.

    I will attempt again. There is really no reason for me being here. If I'm not here the sun will still rise, there will still be clouds in the sky, life will go on. I don't need any of that "but what about the people who love you" ahit either, because no one loves me.

    A well known speaker started off his seminar by
