I want to die - February 17th 2012, 12:16 AM

Everything is meaningless. There's no point in doing anything. I can't even cut because it upsets a friend. That's the only thing that helps this emptiness. I can't do this anymore.

Hey,

Do you know why you feel this way? Life is anything but meaningless, I realize that it may feel that way now but life gets so much better if you just keep hanging on. I realize you say that cutting is the only thing that makes that emptiness go away but honestly, cutting doesn't really help. It just makes matters worse and the fact that your friends are upset about that is probably a good thing. It shows how much they care about you. If the cutting upset them, imagine what would happen if you ended it? They seem to really care about you, so maybe you should open up to them and let them know what's going on...friends are good to have for support, especially when going through tough times.!

I really think that it would best if you talked a professional about what you're going through. They can really help you get out of this dark place that you are in. If you're going to kill yourself, please, PLEASE call a hotline or go to a local hospital! Your life is worth living. Just hang in there!

If you ever want to talk, feel free to send me a PM.


all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
woah,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.

<3

I think the journey to finding the meaning of life IS the meaning of life. You're struggling right now, which means you're learning. Every time you overcome something you don't think you can get past, you get stronger. Strength makes the situations get less and less difficult down the road. If nothing else, there's nowhere to go but up. It's a little bit of tough love, but if you're not happy with the final dish, change some of the ingredients... If you're unhappy with your life and the cycle that we all get stuck in, the only way out is to try something else. Maybe talk to your friend about how you feel. Maybe tell an adult at school or home that you're lost and are struggling. Maybe start a journal online and just get the negativity down. Try something you haven't tried before. Make a change to see a change. And if all else fails, remember that this too shall pass.

We grow and gain sapience and we learn what's important.

We were meant to live for so much more; have we lost ourselves somewhere we live inside?
