    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

    Sadness does not go away.

    Change your life, change your way of thinking, find other ways to deal. It makes me laugh I am at a determinate age where I am very self aware of the truths in this world. I'm sure love and beauty exist s in the world but it no longer exists in mine. Happiness is a pleasant...

    What's the point of life?

    Like why do I exist? Do I have a purpose? If so then why do I feel so lost?

    There's this tree in my backyard,

    it's huge. I spent so many years of my childhood playing in that tree. I had my first kiss on a swing under it. Some of my happiest memories happened under that tree. But lately whenever I look at it I think about hanging myself off of it. I look at it and think it's sturdy...

    What seems to be the point in living is

    anticipating. Waiting for the nice things to come. Like right now I am waiting for tomorrow, looking forward to visiting my grandma. the day after tomorrow I'm going back to the city I live in, seeing friends and my boyfriend later on. But I hate those days when I don't have...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Death. Why is it such a heart breaking

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
