Would you mind sharing some sad conclusion you had about life?

Asked by Christian95 (3250 points ) November 2nd, 2011

I feel like crap lately. I’m having only black thoughts and I often stop on the street having thoughts like “Oh,look at that little old man,he might not be here tomorrow”.
So would you mind doing some sad thought sharing?

That you can’t help someone, no matter how much you love them and how hard you try, if they are not willing to be helped.

And there is my sad thought for the day.

The more I think about it and the more I learn, the more I become convinced that there really is no good political system.

That life, inevitably, comes to an end.

That no matter how hard I try to change the world around me if others don’t care I won’t change it enough.

No matter how hard I try I won’t get accepted.

There are no guarantees. No matter how much you think you might know someone and what they might do, they still might betray/abandon/disappoint you.

And conversely, you might do things you never believed you would do, given certain circumstances.

I’ve realized that we are constantly working our way to the top only to end up on the bottom once again:
You start out at the bottom in grade school, then when you finally get the the top it only lasts for a short while before you are, once again, on the bottom in middle school. Same thing with middle school and through highschool. When you finally graduate you feel like you finally made it to the top only to realize that you are in fact back on the bottom; whether it be college or a job. By the time we finally work our way all the way to the top in life, we die.
Life is a constant stuggle to make it to the top only to pass before we can really enjoy it.

When I was young, like teens and younger then I felt things so deeply, even things that had nothing to do with me directly. I’d be in tears for days after seeing some tv show about starving children, abused animals or if a friend had a family member die. I wondered if I’d always be so depressed and obsessed with thoughts of sad real stuff I couldn’t touch or have much effect on.

All I can say is it let up on me in my early 20’s. I started to have less obsessive thoughts, fewer bad dreams, less “connection” to what other people were feeling who were close by me. I don’t want to say I stopped caring, stopped looking or whatever but I’m just not as jarred as I once was at it’s an absolute relief. The sad conclusion is some people just feel more deeply than others and process differently.

That youth really is wasted on the young and the passing of time is indeed like a train going downhill.

Something sad is that sometimes you might have a regret with an ex lover. You wish you could have done things differently and then you imagine being a 70 year old person with that regret of being so mean but never have been forgiven, even if the two have moved on with their lives. I just dwell on that sometimes that such close lovers could never be friends again.

I find that despite many years of trying to prove him wrong, my fathers pet saying “People, for the most part, are no damn good” is true.

You can’t always control how your life goes. Too many variables can get in the way big time.

I’m lonely. I miss my husband and I now have no idea what I’m on this planet for.
Edit:
Yes I do know why, it’s so I can endure the suffering.

You can love someone and they might even love you back but sometimes there is nothing that can come of it.

augustlan's avatar

I’m sorry you’re feeling down. Sometimes, there is plenty to be down about. There is also always something to be happy about, too. Try to remember that, when you’re in a dark place.

Life under normal circumstances is generally good. What people do with it in normal circumstances can occasionally be pretty sad.

Misery loves company.

It isn’t fair. And some people would rather ignore the people who draw the short straws than accept that fact.

Learn to be your own best friend, when push comes to shove you only have yourself.

NostalgicChills's avatar

That life isn’t fair, things won’t always go according to plan, and perhaps the saddest realization of all; life doesn’t always start with “once upon a time” and end with “happily ever after”.
Life is simply not a Disney movie.

Pandora's avatar

Misery loves company and bathing in it isn’t going to make you feel better. Quite the opposite. But I will give you a sad fact about life.
You attract what you put out. If you want to feel better about life than you have to look for the good parts and nurture them. No one else can do that for you. If you do that then you will attract people who are happy to be around you and help you find more things to be grateful for.

@SpatzieLover There’s a quote somewhere that says men are worried about what they can’t see.

@Christian95 Go to church. Lay it on him. He can take it. That’s what he died for. All better.

People suck. I keep trying to lower my expectations, but they keep surprising me by delving even deeper into utter disappointment.

Christian95's avatar

Thank you guys for all your thoughts.I feel some what reassured knowing that I’m not the only one who has these conclusions.
