Unhappy I Used to Think Life was Fair - March 9th 2012, 09:34 AM

First of all, this isn't triggering nor suicidal, I'm just kind of depressed right now...

So I used to think that if you did the good things, you would get good things back. My life hasn't been very nice the past few months, so I decided to help others out for nothing in return. I had hoped that by being nice, maybe my life would look up.

During this past month, I have lent my parents money, I have expressed my support and even modelled for a friend who wants to become a photographer (all of my friends make fun of him), I have written a recommendation letter for a friend who is hoping to stay in Canada, I have lent my brother money most times he's needed it, I have taken a co - worker's shift when he couldn't make it, I've been trying to be really nice to people I don't normally like, and I've just been trying to be a really approachable guy.

I didn't expect my life to be dazzling, but I hoped that maybe some light would be shed; that something good would happen to me for a change, anything... The opposite has been happening however.

I didn't do very well on a test I studied really hard for, the girl I used to get along with well is now putting all her focus on my best friend, I've been getting less happier by the day (alcohol and friends aren't solving this anymore), and worst of all, the girl I've been gathering up the courage to ask out got a boyfriend today. This was a really huge blow, and my body for some reason feels really numb right now...

I think I might need some help soon, I'm not great right now but I'm afraid things could escalate to what they were 3 years ago if things keep going like this...

Hey there

I am sorry that things are going so bad for you at the moment. You most definitely don't deserve all this. I hope life gets better for you soon, I know it will get better eventually but I hope it does that soon.

There is a saying we have in Hindi. It goes like this, "Go on doing good karma without worrying about the results". My mother has always taught me/shown me, that we need to keep on doing good things. If not for others, then for ourselves. Because it makes us feel good. And the saying says that we should not worry about what good will come of doing nice stuff. Now not to go all preachy on you, You're a wonderful person. Those things that you've done are proof that you are. Be happy, simply because you're such an amazing person. They might not appreciate all this today, but one day they will realize how nice you've been to them and they never appreciated it. Do all this to make yourself happy. For your self satisfaction. It will come back to you one day. What goes around comes back. Today might not be that day, but that day will come, probably when you least expect it to come!

I hope that helps you.
I am always here if you need to talk.
Take care and stay strong
