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. 4,011 People

    I have arrived at the point

    where I wish to end my life, and have a detailed plan for doing so. It is at this point that I have realised something rather crucial. People don't end their lives when they can't face tomorrow. They end their lives when they realise that they can't face tomorrow, the day after...

    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...

    Today I sat down on the ground.

    Stared at a door and just thought about slitting my wrists. I just sat there for an hour staring arms spread out like I actually cut them. I started wondering if this was why I wanted to see my veins so badly. Wondering what my purpose was. Why I ate the things I ate, drank...

    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...

    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...

    Right and wrong. We are taught to differentiate

    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...
