Why should I keep going?

Asked by ArtiqueFox (974points) March 21st, 2010

The future has no light. It’s will be all problems and suffering. Why keep living? This fucking century isn’t worth living in. Why should I keep going?

Why not?

Will not going on be an improvement in any way?

Your future has light. Right now you just can’t see it. The light is actually in you.

I know how you feel though… but life has so much to offer and you’ll see that once you take some action to turn it around.

Oh, and you as an individual have lots of offer too.. why deprive the world of that?

I hear you still have to create a catch phrase for realist.

If you drop dead, its not like your life will improve. You’ll be dead. You’ll never know for sure if your life would’ve been worth living. Why are you worried about the this century. You have no idea what wonders are in store for you. Everyone has good times and bad times. Some worse than others and yet some of those manage to make their life wonderful. Joy in your life can only be obtained by you. But first you must look for it. Its not going to drop in your lap. Heck if you take a cold shower you will find comfort in warm towel. You have to learn to look for the little joys and in time they will add up to daily joy. Look for only the bad and you’ll find that too.

Because it is the journey, and not the destination….

Am I missing something? This sounds like depression, not just existential angst. Go see a doctor if this has you really thinking about checking out.

Being really depressed about life is serious business. If this is just blowing off steam, it’s still a worrisome way of doing so.

I can’t tell you life is worth anything, because I have been in a place where it wasn’t. It was my malfunctioning brain that nearly got the best of me. The meds helped. Learning that others appreciated helped. Learning that I didn’t want to hurt my children that way helped. It was a struggle. I see more to live for now, and I never want to go back to the place I was in. Never. I know now how to ask for help if I need it.

because you really don’t know what was round the corner when you’re dead
