Hey there breakbeat.

I'm sorry you feel this way, it's such a terrible feeling to feel like you have no point. The thing is, if you killed yourself you'll never get to see what potential you have. Everyone has some sort of point in life, but sometimes you have to wait and see it. Maybe you can try thinking of things you like doing or are good at-- they don't have to be things you love or are amazing at, but things you enjoy. Then, you could try to do something that somehow incorporates these. For example, if you like to help people, maybe you could try helping out at a homeless shelter or hospice care. If you like kids you could try helping out at a school that maybe has a high percentage of kids who come from immigrant families so you could help them learn English better and such. I think trying to help out in the community could help you find some sort of sense of purpose and up your confidence, even if you don't find "your point". If you really are feeling suicidal, I'd urge you to try to call a helpline (hotline numbers can be found HERE) or check out some of the stickies at the top of the Depression & Suicide forum. Good luck with things and if you need anything or have any questions just PM me.


"Love me for me, accept the fact I'm true, live like I want, fufill my dreams,
Dream of me, run out free, capture your words and never let them go."

I'll see you on the other side.

Hey,

There is always point. You are the point because you are worth it. You would be missed if you weren't here. You might think that no one cares but you will have touched many peoples lives and there is always someone who cares. I can understand that right now everything might feel so pointless but everything won't always be like this. Things can and will change; it might not happen overnight but things will change. They can't stay this way forever. If you gave up you wouldn't have a chance to experience this. I think that no matter how bad life gets you should never give up. If things are that bad right now then they might not be able to get any worse and so they will only be able to get better. You deserve to be happy and you will get there so keep hanging on.

If you ever need anything at all then I am always here. Stay strong

well i did try to do stuff like that. i even started a group to help feed the hungry through music. like get local bands to play benefit shows to raise money for my local food bank. but ive just lost interest in doing that anymore. i have a friend that took over the group for me. but i just dont get the feeling of accomplishment from doing that.
