Has anyone ever thought of giving up? What keeps you going?

Sometimes I feel so anxious and I tired because it is a living hell. It makes me think of giving up. The only thing that keeps me going is my little sister and the hope that things will get better. No condition is permanent. That is all I have to say.
Does anyone go through the same at times?

body just keeps going, no self destruct button, laziness, detachment, habit, various desires and hopes, human psychology, etc.

Family keeps me going too. And a little bit of hope. I did try and give up when I was a teenager, even though life still is a struggle I strongly regret trying to leave my life and family behind back then. Getting mental help made improvements so giving up now is something I don't think about too often.

I gave up lots of times. After you give up, eventually there's nothing else to do but try again. Sitting alone without talking to anyone for long enough eventually drives action.

What keeps me going? Nothing. I'm just so useless, that I even can't kill myself, I can do nothing, no matter how much I try, there's appears to be not enough... I just remain alive, but dead inside at the same time just waiting for the time when I finally get physical death... I don't want anything else, I just want to end it all, just all that nightmare called "my life". I just want that everything come to the end finally. That's the only my wish, I'm crying for death, but I didn't deserved it to be easy... There isn't any hope for me as well...

Even shy people can be sassy sometimes...
I'll put drunk raccoon in my signature as well, because I CAN...

Feel like giving up all the time. And lots of conditions are permanent. Unless you mean that some of them end when you die.

I don't have any hope that things will get better. I expect them to keep getting worse and worse, because I have no evidence they will do otherwise. I continue to live out of spite.

For forty-seven years I've put up with it now. I must stop Christmas from coming ... but how?
