Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But think of if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the very best in its field. Great blog!

It's all going downhill.
The only thing constant with every passing miserable day is that yesterday was better. Even memories hurt. I don't want anything. I just wait.
It will inevitably get unbearable someday.
That will be the day of my freedom.

I just wait.

Is there anyone who waits with me?

Eeyore 17/05/02(Tue)03:10 No. 5393 ID: 0c2267

yes, i wait with you, friend.

a young witch once told me "do not dread death, do not run away from it. it will always catch you. do not run towards death with open arms. it will catch up to you in its own time. just be at peace, and you and death will meet in time."

so for now, be at peace, friend.
everything will be okay, if not now, then later. one day, everything really will be okay.

so be at peace, and rest at ease, friend.

I try to be at peace. But this world really pushes me.
I see me fade a little more each day.
One day I will know absolute peace.

I wait for that day with you.

I have a nice job. I make decent money. My family loves me, and I can afford to send them money regularly to help them out. have nice colleagues and I live in a nice country.

Despite all that, I'm still sitting alone in my apartment at 8PM on a Saturday with a half empty bottle of Vodka in front of me.

What the fuck is the point of it all if you can't even be happy?

I wish I had the balls to kill myself to be done with being unhappy...

As a teacher, I take some comfort in the thought that I am a warning to my students.

"Don't be like me," I say to them. "Find a job that pays well. Find someone who will treat you well. Hope for a better tomorrow. Learn to love, and learn to listen. Keep trying. Keep fighting.

Don't be like me."

>my consciousness being dismantled
I have a lingering fear of brain damage. For many years I have suspected that I will likely die from a severe head trauma. It almost makes me sick to my stomach to imagine being alive with a partially incapacitated brain, even if it only lasts a few moments.

That said, death I wouldn't feel too bad about. Been waiting for it for a long time now. Being dead would solve all kinds of problems for me, but I'm not going to kill myself because that would hurt other people.

I have begun to evanesce in the memories of my ex - the one I care for more than anything in this world, and the one that drove me here. The pain that 6 years of love amounted to nothing in her eyes, and worse, that after only one year apart, she has begun forgetting all the reasons we were together.

Being alive while I disappear from this world is by far the most painful thing my heart has endured. At least being dead means I won't feel it.

No actually our data tells us that it probably stops with us and or we are just part of a larger multiverse that exists infinitely. Lawrence crause did a talk on it at UCLA you can find it on yt.

At some point there has to have been a beginning and to posit god just begs more questions.

Only the biggest retards could not understand that.

What doors have you closed to never reopen?
What paths have you left untaken behind you?

I'm never going to be an engineer like I wanted to as a kid, nor a writer like I wanted to in university. I won't be an artist or a musician either. I have to work a dead-end job and save money, probably until the end of my days, unless there's still hope for my dream to open my own company--but I'm 33 now.

I won't get to work in coding, that door was closed when I got there.
I won't be either a comic book writer nor a penciller, I closed that door by being a retard.
I won't be even above average, my insanity closed that door for me.
All I can wish for now is to be medicated hard enough to bear a semblance of normalcy and keep a job for more than a couple of years.

Here is a list of a few random things that cause my anxiety to explode
In no particular order

-If my living space is untidy

-Touching anything that my mother has touched
-A good majority of social situations
-Having friends, keeping friends, losing friends
-Babies and children
-Cancelled plans
-Untimely or late message responses
-Minor misunderstandings

-When my living space gets messy, it erodes my self-confidence; makes me feel like I never get anything done, not even the dishes--so what does it matter if i even try (seems to be the beginning of every depressive phase, my apartment fills up with trash, dishes start to stink, I fall into a hole).

-When other people violate the unwritten rules and rituals I live by (like taking another glass for a drink instead of reuisng the one they have) I experience almost uncontrollable outbursts of anger (I've actually thrown people out, abruptly and without explanation, for doing this).

-When someone does something the wrong way and it's obvious they simply don't care if there's an easier, more efficient, or more effective way to do it I visualize strangling them to death and it starts a little seed of hatred for that person that will never go away (and it seems to be a hallmark trait of people who work in management--even if they are good managers, when they don't delegate a task they tend to do it themselves in the worst posssible way and then walk away confident in their having "got it done").

-Talking to people in positions of power over me who do not acknowledge their privileges and yet subject me to their whims makes me acutely nauseous (also managers, but in my case particularly the people who sponsor my visa who never seem to be aware that I have to stay in their good graces--personally and professionally--lest I be thrown all they way back to my home country).

-Having unanswered calls, unreplied messages, etc induces a kind of paralysis in me; I can't return people's inquires because I assume they already hold me in contempt and don't want to face whatever consequences they have prepared (which happens to me on a daily basis--everything from having to listen to twenty minutes of scolding for not interrupting my work to answer a personal call to fired for not replying to an e-mail for five minutes--every day; I wish I were making it up).

-Time itself induces me to panic almost constantly. I often wake up with a jump--to my feet, sometimes an hour before my alarm wtih my heart racing while I desperately try to figure out what day and time it is and what I think I should be doing. I catch myself avoiding looking at clocks when I know that it's getting close to the last minute, which is partly why I put clocks in every room of my apartment in positions such that it is possible to see the time from any angle, anywhere (there's even a clock in my bathroom I can see from outside the apartment). Whenever I have time off I don't relax or enjoy it; my heart races and I check and recheck my schedules to make sure I really have the time off. It's not that I want so much to be working, but that I am extremely uneasy about having uno Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

Ive had really bad social anxiety for nearly ten years and i find it all comes down to the idea that a small series of misunderstandings can domino out of control. Unusually it just leads to awkward silences and other people pulling away, but I've lost jobs because of this. Anything can cause anxiety if shit goes down.

This. All possession of anything is really just an illusion. Unless your legacy permeates the human race nothing you do matters, and even then on some time scale the human race never mattered to begin with. Any purpose you have in life is just made up by you or somebody else.

Does anybody else take a grim comfort in the sadder aspects of life? We cannot feel happiness if not for the bad times, and all that is good must eventually come to an end. Why not embrace these things rather than fighting them? Why do we fight such an inevitable part of life?

"All things must come to an end...life, love, and even the universe itself."

Several conversations have been had here recently about this very phenomenon, but yes, in brief, I have given up on trying to deny the depressed and morbidly-infatuated part of myself and I'm now trying to integrate it into my greater active perspective. So far, I feel more "comfortable", in a loose and difficult to describe sort of way, with myself and my mind. People know that I usually feel blue and think about death a lot, so they've mostly stopped saying things like "you should just think positively." It kind of gives me the breathing space I need to figure out how to deal with being happy on the limited occasions that I am, actually. It's weird.

During a significant part of my life (roughly its 70%) all I knew was pain, solitude, misery and alienation, clinging to my bones like rotten flesh. Even now, there isn't a single day that I don't think about death or suicide.
So I think I naturally try to come back to what I recognize as familiar: darkness, despair, helplessness.
