    I tell myself to keep writing

    because I know it will help me but I don't care anymore. My rational mind scolds me and tells me to not be trusting of my indifference towards life. I am on the bus heading to a doctors appointment with my primary care doctor to talk about depression. I don't want to go and it's...

    I can utilize an analogy: Simply my feeling,

    please do not judge: A pencil,upon each side is written. Hope,dreams,belief. = Into the proverbial pencil sharpener. = I cannot hope,believe,dream,"why am I here?"

    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...

    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...

    Attempted once. Failed.

    I will attempt again. There is really no reason for me being here. If I'm not here the sun will still rise, there will still be clouds in the sky, life will go on. I don't need any of that "but what about the people who love you" ahit either, because no one loves me.

    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...
