It’s over
#11
Just getting through the day is better than Game Over. I know because I lived it, one shitty day after another and I'm still here, the shit didn't win and it's a life worth living, far from wonderful but a lot better than it was.

There is no surrender, Lonewolf!

life sucks alright. For some of us things get worse instead of better. Life is full of pain and misery.

I've stood on the edge of the black abyss quite a few times and looked down into it, very nearly opting out. What stopped me is I know that life and things can change in a single day.
Yes I still get depressed and when I do it can seem like nothing will ever change. But I've been there before. I know I'll be depressed again in the future.

I'm not going to tell you 'nice things' as you put it. But I will tell you what changed my mind about ending it. Of all the sh!tty things that can happen in my daily life, there have been moments where I have found myself feeling good, smiling even. I wouldn't have had those moments (as brief as they sometimes are) if I had committed suicide. I'm at least giving life a chance. You never know just what curve ball life may throw at you, for better or worse. But that makes life interesting.

You feel pretty down at the moment, but in a weeks time you could be feeling totally different and glad you never chose to end it. Death is permanent, life is not. Try to get something out of it, anything.. while it lasts. It'll be over before you know it.

I agree with Jakotae. It's what I've experienced too.

Why do you feel so down today Lonewolf?

Why not try living for those who didn't get the chance.
I'm not making this a competition and I don't in any way mean to imply that there are worse off than you. There is... there will always be someone worse off, no matter who you are.

What I am saying is that if you can't find meaning for your own life, do something for others. Do something who those that wanted to live, bit couldn't, like putting a flower on a child's grave. Or volunteer at a soup kitchen or habitat for humanity even if you need that help too. Maybe giving help and kindness to others will make you see how grateful people are for help or how much good there is in the world or giving a family a good thought about a stranger doing something nice.

It's not always about doing for yourself that gives you a leg up in life, sometimes it helps to forget your own troubles and help others. It doesn't matter what you don't have, focus on what you do have. You have the ability to do all those things and probably more.

(Yes, it's in another thread. I originally meant to post it here. Since I doubt you will see it in the other thread, I copy/pasted)

The feel good moments that I experience is like the calm before the storm. I’ll have a day even where things feel good and then bam back into a dark spiral. It never fails this is just a continuing trend that I’ve experienced most of my adult life.

Like I said I’ve taken action before and for awhile things go okay. But I always end in the same place

 You've been saying basically the same thing the whole time you've been on the forum. I'm not saying you haven't taken action, but what all have you tried?

Do you still work at that same job? The one where your supervisor or coworker or someone was trying to get you into trouble? 

How about the friend issues you were having? How is that going?

Do you have any fun? I think you posted not too long ago that you only work and sleep...? You have to make time for yourself. 

What in your life is going well? What are you grateful for? Sometimes we start to focus on all the negative crap that's weighing on our lives and we forget that there are still good things too.
