How do you function and live every single day for every single second of your life?


I donít know how much longer I can take this. I move like molasses at work. I canít even get up when I wake up to go to the bathroom and I let myself cramp in discomfort. Lol. Anything except getting up. I want to drop out of society. But I canít. This life is not just for me. Itís for my family. I have to do it. I have to keep living and being productive. I have to do chores. I have to fix. I have to. This life must go on.

why do you feel the need to exit society?

I think you said it yourself, is there really a choice? We have to keep going whether we want to or not. That's our only choice.

using the word "YOU"


seems a direct Divide by zero

destroying the operating system instantly. kernel panic intended?

referencing NULL

generating a worm, virus, bug. not just one. universal mass destruction weapon.

all human nature. all day. all time. incorporating initial word "DO"! too

I honestly feel the same way. This life was never for people like me. Just take it one day at a time, find the positives in your life, it doesn't have to be something big.

That statement can be taken in two different contexts. I think you mean that we have to keep working and being a part of society but thatís not true. You can live in a sewer, the mountains or forests. The convictions we put on ourselves are because our fleshy, carnal ego. There is a way out of daily society though. We just wonít like our options.

But one thing is true. Once youíre born, once youíre a person, there is no way out. Even if you kill yourself, youíre not out of circle of existence. Thereís still more. Once you exist, you have history and even when you die that doesnít go away. You canít ďnot existĒ once you exist.



I've been seeking happiness for years.
I've lived in hiding from the darkness.
I've spent so many hours in question.
I've prayed that God finds me soon.
Only to realize I must find myself.

I've read stories of people who do that but I don't know if I could ever do that. The more I understand about life the more I'm beginning to realize that this all about connection. At least for me personally the more connected I am to other people the more complete I feel and when I'm alone is when I feel the sadness and negativity creeping in. This is very interesting though because I've loved being by myself for most of my life.

And yeah that's something I always think about. Even if I escape this world my soul will live on so there's no guarantee that I will never suffer again. Like you said it keeps going from one lifetime to the next. We mine as well find ways to enjoy this existence as well.

By believing that suffering is what life is all about. You have to do whatever you can to etch out an existence with whatever hand you've been dealt. You start becoming stronger the more you can push through the bs. The more problems you deal with, the more you learn about life. I guess that's how I see it.

Lmao, I'm the same with getting up x].

The older I get, the more clearer things become, and the more depressed I get because of all the BS around me. Some days I just think "What are you doing? Really, what are you doing???.." To myself/family simultaneously because it feels so null. Not just for me, but for a lot of people, it feels like their whole life was setup for failure. :/

Most people don't seem to be cared for enough emotionally/financially by their family, and then if people say "it's because it's expensive" blahblahblah, then why have kids in the first place if you don't even have a house??? So many people forced to finish degrees they don't want to and stuff like that too, and ironically a lot of the time they don't land the prestigious job their parents wanted them to get from x STEM course lol.

It's really incredibly frustratingly difficult to see the "positives" of things when you're seemingly losing all the things you value which is basically where I'm at now. :/ I'm worried about my health and passion atm.

I don't wanna exist

What do you mean? You have your family depending on you financially?

But these posts are just a bunch of platitudes tbh.

Sorry not sorry

I just feel I am stuck with this as of now. I don't know what will happen few years from now. I don't really have any plans. No ambitions. I am not enjoying my life, but I cannot escape it. I know that very well. How long can I live like this?

Talented people do a lot of things, but Geniuses do what they do best.

Maybe you don't have to? I feel this way most of the time i.e. Dragged down by everything. I was thinking of exercise but uh, I haven't tried that but at the same time, it is all within my capabilities to do so. There's one sentence that sticks out in a CBT anxiety and phobia book that comes to mind and that is that even though you have a bigger hill to climb than most people, you can still take your time to climb it. It's just that there's this big gigantic hill in the way. It can get very befuddling. (that was not in the CBt book).

Not exactly.. I’m saying that you will never NOT have consciousness. You don’t rest once you’re dead because your soul will always live. It’s part of the paradox of life. You are everlasting and never lasting at once. Whether you believe in it or not, it won’t change anything. I’m just warning people who say “it’s all over when you’re dead”... It’s not over.



I've been seeking happiness for years.
I've lived in hiding from the darkness.

I've prayed that God finds me soon.
