Maybe death isn't such a bad idea? - September 15th 2017, 02:21 PM

Nevermind what I said. I don't think I'll be ending it yet.

The dry feeling persists though. This literal feeling of dryness and emptiness. Sucks.

Right, forget about this whole thing. I'm being a whiny bitch, that's all. Sorry for the bother. Just becomes too much to bear after some time.

I've felt the same way, and had those same thoughts.

A psychiatrist at a lecture said explaining the effect suicide has on the family helps convince patients to hang in there. Apparently my idea that everyone would be happier without me isn't correct. Apparently it can be devastating.

So I'm still alive, and now I'm like, well, since I'm still here, might as well do good things. Don't know what my purpose in being here is yet, or if there even is one. Maybe there isn't one. Maybe it doesn't matter. Maybe that's the wrong question to ask. Maybe there's a different question I haven't encountered yet.

There is a meaning to life. The meaning of life is to reproduce and die. I'm afraid I might only be able to fulfill one of those two things. However, I don't know which one it will be.

You see, my goal in life is to attain physical immortality. Like Gilgamesh, I will do anything to never perish. So either I will be immortal, or I will reproduce. Perhaps both can be done, and one might say that they are the same thing (your heir carries your genes, so he carries a part of you).

Hopefully it all works out and I can be a loved/loving, desirable, wanted, immortal man.

Hi,
Your not being a whiny bitch at all. Your obviously suffering, whatever the reason. I've found that just keep myself busy by doing anything (from the dishes to hw) it'll help me cool down and then I won't be inclined to hurt myself when I'm upset or angry. It's important that you do get help because it's obvious that your finding I hard to cope. Maybe talking to your family or friends would help??


Keep calm and carry on.

Maybe. I don't think I really want to die. I never did want to die. I'm really, really really really scared of death. I think anyone is. But sometimes, it just gets so bad.

I'm giving my life some time to get better. We'll see when I'm 20. If I'm still alone and without experience by then, I think it's Face McShooty for me.

Hi again,
I just feel like giving yourself a deadline will only put you under more pressure. I don't know how old you are, but 20 sounds very young, I know for sure a lot of people don't get their act together, or feel any better that young. By 20 your still getting new experiences and there's so much more to do. I'm sorry that you feel this way. You can always PM me if you want to!


Keep calm and carry on.
