    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.

    A well known speaker started off his seminar by

    holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked. "Who would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you - but first, let me do this." He proceeded to crumple the 20 dollar note up. He then asked. "Who still wants it...

    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...

    It's difficult to find reasons to live,

    but very easy to find reasons to not die. The worst feeling is that of not wanting to live, but not having the capability to die, either. Purgatory. So, I'm trapped in my mind, alone, with all of these mental disorders, hopeless, wondering what the point in living is. Maybe it...

    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...
