I’ll make it to my next birthday. It’s no longer worth it to keep fighting.

You wouldn't have posted this if you didn't want some sort of help.

And you have yet to answer a question I asked you previously; if you're feeling this down, why is it you continue to get up and even come here as often as you do?

You might not be as hopeless as you think. That's why I asked you, to get you to acknowledge the reasons as well.

I hope you don't mind me saying, but if everybody in the world 'gave up' because of the hardships in their lives, the human race would die out within a hundred years.

I feel like I have very little going on in my life, myself. Every day I see people with friends and romantic relationships, and I find myself spending all of my time resorting to forms of escapism (tv and games) just to get by. However I have never, not once considered 'giving up'. This is the only life I'll ever have - I might as well live it.

I can't recall if you ever mentioned having a family. Blood relatives? If so, isn't it worth fighting for them? The fact that you're on here making these comments shows that you do want help. You just don't know how to get it. Perhaps that is what you need to do - reach out to others who feel the way you do.

Are there no groups for people with depression? In another year, things might brighten up, and you'll be looking back and thinking 'I'm glad I didn't do anything reckless'. But once you've 'given up' there's no going back.

I don't suppose I've made you feel any different - but I just wanted to voice my thoughts on the subject.

Hope to hear back from you, buddy.

I can’t answer you on why I haven’t committed suicide yet and keep coming back to this site. Probably lack of planning

I highly doubt that. I think you want things to get better, to not feel like this; but you're unsure on how to go about it.

Well, talking is a good first step. Continue.

I want a lot of things but than there is a reality. I went through deep depression a few years ago both my physical and meant so state where in very bad places. It took three years of almost re-inventing myself I made some major life changes. Life changes that I thought would help me get past all this for good. But then reality of the things hurting me the most I am completely powerless to change. So here I am again back in this same dark place.

I don't know why you'd think this, since to me it seems you've long since done the hardest step already: making a serious change for the first time.

Now I'm curious for you to elaborate on what exactly you think happened to all but undo that progress? Are you sure you're not over-dramatizing it a bit, perhaps?

I don’t think any progress is being undone. Rather, I believe that progress never fixed the larger issue my persistent loneliness. People say go out there put yourself in challenging situations, meet new new people, step outside your comfort zone. I’ve done all those things but nothing ever changes for me.

That's dumb advice I've heard all my life, from my own family. And it's never helped me. They had no idea what was going on with me and were essentially pushing their old ways onto me and expecting since it worked for them, it would work for me. JUST STICK WITH IT.

So, I agree it's bad advice. Don't follow it.
I mean, it's a little tricky. I will agree you need to meet new people, which might entail stepping out of your comfort zone, sure, but it doesn't have to be putting yourself outside, in challenging situations, etc. Those two do not go hand-in-hand.

You're more than allowed to meet the people you want to meet, wherever you want to meet them.

Like, I've rolled my eyes at so many people who are AFRAID to tell someone they met their significant other online, like they'll be made fun of or something. I say meeting someone like that is what matters, not WHERE.

So if you only have friends online, hey, you have friends. Go for it. Every single friend doesn't have to be the cliche who always visits your house and then you go rock climbing together, where you meet your future wife.

I hate it when this kind of cliched lifestyle is pushed onto everywhere, especially when it doesn't appeal to everyone. Meet new people, but meet them how you want, and if it makes you happy, to hell with what anyone says about it.

You're here with a lot of like minded individuals. I'd say you're already at a place where you can start making some friends, today even, and work on it from there.


I've been in a similar situation and this worked for me. With any capacity of friends, you'll find you start feeling a lot better, in a lot of areas.

Many of these interactions are superficial the chances of meeting someone on forum that turns into a legit day to day friend is minimal. It’s hard to establish real connection with someone you might not ever physically meet.
