I can't do this - November 13th 2009, 06:10 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I can't see myself living past 18, I don't know, I just hate this world and all I want is to escape it. I dream about leaving the earth in any way because I just can't see myself being able to actually deal with life. I can barely deal with it now. I don't know how to live in this world, and the more I learn about the world the scareder I get. Maybe I'm just selfish and too lazy to work in this world. Or I just don't want the responsibility that comes with life because... I don't know why. Because it's just too hard? I just think of myself ever living to adult hood. I make plans, I make goals and dreams to try to put myself in it, to work for it. But they all seem like they'll never happen. So why bother?

You have lived this long. That is saying something. You are so brave and strong. Things will get better. I know how it feels and if you would like I could tell you my story or you could share yours. I am here if you need someone to talk to.

Hey Kaitlin,

We all have goals and wants in life, and it's ALWAYS possible to improve your life so you can get closer to the things you want. With that said, you do have to find the strength within yourself to get motivated and take responsibility for yourself. Ultimately, it is up to you in order to make the positive changes in your life, so that you can get what you want.

Don't be afraid to ask for support either. Ask your family and friends for support. I would definitely suggest speaking to a counselor or therapist so that you have a neutral place to express your feelings, as well as having someone to help you form a plan in order to get in a better mood.

If you ever do want to talk, you can PM me. I hope you feel better soon Kaitlin.
