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. 4,559 People

    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...

    Meaningless

    Well, life hits me again like a baseball bat in the jaw. No, I didn't lose a family member or my dog, it's just that in the end of the day, when I have nothing more to do, I start thinking about stuff. Thinking about what happened to me today, what could've been the day if I...

    I am failing a class

    that i need to keep my job that i suck at. I don't know what to do if i fail. I am too old to start a new career and have no skills to work with. I am not really suicidal. I am too much of a coward and have a child i love too much to see get screwed up

    I am so suicidal and no one

    even cares anymore. They wouldn't notice if I just left. I don't want to be forgotten. I feel so empty and upset

    We live. We die. We, perhaps,

    live again. But why? The world seems to get darker each day. I don't believe there is a god. So you see, what is the point? In the end, we all die.

    I hate my life. I hate meeting people

    and making bonds with fake friends. If I I'm not valuable enough to be someone's friend or boyfriend then why try? I really want to live for my family but I have trouble coping...I don't know if I'll be strong enough to make it.

    One More Sunset

    I really don't know where else to do.

    suicide is constantly on my mind. I try to be positive but it's not helping anyone. I don't want to bother anyone. which it seems that's what I always do even when just trying to hold a conversation or just checking on someone. I felt like hiding the pain would help but it's...

    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...

    I really want to kill myself.

    The only thing that stops me is the fact of what happens after you die. I'm not staying for my family, friends or anything else but because of the unknown afterlife or if there's even an afterlife. My family is christian and I've been raised in church so I'm not sure.

    So I told my mom the other day I would not kill

    myself for her. Along with that I'm afraid of committing self-murder on my last breath so eternal consequences there and I would hate what it would do to my brothers and a couple of my aunts. The rest, well pretty much **** em. Everything falls away in the end anyway.

    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,

    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.
