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. 4,299 People

    I am often left wondering what is my purpose of

    living. This does happen quite often in one point of someone's life, 1-4 to be exact. But the extremity of ones dark thoughts come at a costing price. No words could describe the ripping sensation that continually lingers in my chest/heart. I can barely breathe and feel...

    I feel like if I just didn't get up,

    nobody would notice. I could just go on and on already dead and it would be weeks before anyone found out. What's the point if my life doesn't mean anything to anyone? If I'm not important to anyone, then me being around isn't important

    What is the point of living?

    I'm alone, completely. I have $6 in change in my purse, my bank account is overdrawn by $700, and I owe more than $10,000 in regular loans, and $30,000 in student loans. I'm unemployed and over-qualified for anyone who's hiring - they won't even look at me. If I don't get a job...

    Seriously, what is the point.

    i have no desire to do anything. i don't want money, or fame, or a house, or a car, or nice things. they all just seem so...petty. I just want someone to share my life with, but no one wants a man who's only ambition in life is to love and be loved. So i just sit here, existing...

    First Time For Everything

    I've been depressed as of lately. Very very depressed, but I always hide it so well in front of the face of others. I start to cut people off, the people that I love the most. I stopped playing roleplaying games, even though I am being forced into playing one tomorrow with our...

    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...

    Every day I look at the sun setting

    and realize that I did nothing that day. No one loves me, I don't love anyone, so what's the point? I'd gladly end it but am too much of a coward.

    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...

    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.
