  • I really don’t know why I continue living

    Ey, i dont actually know what u are going through but i can tell you tried and failed many times, you feel like u dont worth living anymore, like everytime you tryin to stand up and walk something brings you down. Or mybe everytime someone hurts u get pain like a stab in your heart and you feel like your heart is butchered now. Mybe you really tried your best but now you feel like you cant. You want to give up and start an after life... mybe u are right. But do you know why people succeed? What they went through until we call them "legends"? It might seem as impossible right now and feels like you are hopeless and worthless but my friend im ensuring you you are getting stronger. If you went throught a dark night then there is brighter day infront of u..all you need to do is have faith, rise up, start a fresh and see the opportunity in each new day. Remember anyone can love you when the sun is shining, in the storm is where you learn who truly cares for you buddy!!
    Everything will be so good soon, just hang in there and dont worry bout it too much.

    I am hopeless and depressed person, whose life has no value , so when I am living then you are far better than me. So, Enjoy your life. Always see the people who are in bad condition than u then u will feel , how lucky u are.

  • There should be a reason why you should be alive, you should enjoy life rather than completing a life sentence on Earth. You should live a life for yourself. Eat, pray, sleep, explore and do what all YOU like.

    you are still alive because still you've to fulfill the purpose for what you are here. Still you've not fulfilled it that's why you're still alive.

    @sup I'm only speaking the truth 😊

    nice quote for the positive go-getter type of person,
    but for the depressed person it probably just invokes anger and bitterness .....
    I feel for anyone and everyone trapped in the grip of depression and anxiety
    because I spent my first 16 yrs of life being hated and beaten and insulted
    and being prevented from developing ..... Depression is really anger which is not activated.
    take a bath towel and twist it from furthest corner to opposite corner, then when it is done, fold it in half, and beat the living daylights out of your bed until you are exhausted - its wonderful therapy and a release.
    Something unusual that was amazing for me was EFT, Emotional Freedom Therapy. Check out online Gary Craig. Its free, you dont need to pay anyone, and for me, it was liberating.
    Also Breath Work, or ReBirthing, can be amazing, allows lots of anger and misunderstanding to surface - its not cheap, and you do need a guide, but it can be incredibe.
    Also St. John's Wort is darn good at lifting depression. For it to be effective you need to take 3 x 300mg capsules a day for 21 days, and then have a 7 day break. Ignore the nonsense online about 300mg a day will change ya life ... it wont. You do need to take it as Ive said, including the 7 day break.
    Hugs to everyone.

    Great Quote .... but,
    someone who cant sail won't have a clue what you are talking about ..... adjust your sails incorrectly and you'll be heading for a capsize

  • So that you can die one day?

  • You just need to find something worth living for.

  • a lot of depressions comes from simply NOT knowing how to live "successfully". WE are constantly compared by people to the lives of other people and we can't be "other people". In time we do it to ourselves too. We miss out discovering what we can do, and fixate on what we cannot do. I remember going to ballroom dancing lessons with my ex-wife and having her sighing and moaning about how hopeless I was at it, then we divorced, and I met another lady. This lady knew how to follow her male dancing partner and we made a great team. When one of us made a mistake we laughed and carried on. We enjoyed our dancing. My ex-wife couldnt enjoy her dancing because she was a bully, she had no idea how to follow her dancing partner, she constantly pulled him off balance so he didnt show her up, and she kept him controlled with her sighing and moaning. Families do this to us too. They frequently compare us to other family members having expectations of us and for us which are illogical. Let people go. Be there to support them in which ever direction they have leanings towards.

    The biggest controller in my life has been guilt. Guilt ladled on to me in layers by the people who raised me. Guilt for not being like other people. Guilt for being different. ( that was a big one, dished out like a sacks of wet sand stacked on my shoulders - and then laughed at for failing in my attempts to carry it all and failing to succeed in the manner that they recognised as success). Idiots.

    Rejection came next. Phew, thats a heavy one for a child to work thru. A social worker described me as an "alien child" because I was the child who no one wanted, the child who was different, the child who spent lots of time on its own so it would not have to suffer the insults, the humiliation, the being laughed at, and the huge sense of not belonging anywhere. Those disgusting people knew no different, they were trained by their parents to behave like that, with a mantra that said what happens indoors stays indoors - that way, of course, they cant be corrected and proved to be wrong in their behavour.

    I still repeat what I say about depression is unexpressed anger. And much of that anger is being angry at not being allowed to express ourselves without condemnation or criticsm. Learning assertiveness is tough, but most people can be taught. Sometimes we can redress the balance of power with words, words that can cut someone down so they instantly learn a new respect for us, and this too we can learn.

    And there is much truth in that saying, if at first you dont succeed, try, try, try, again,
    Frequently, its anothejr person, or persons, who need to change.
