I feel like that more days than not..Between a very demanding job and taking care of kids I have about 30 minutes to myself every week of which I am to ****3ng tired to do anything productive. Everyone tells me not wish my life away but I honestly can't wait for retirement.

OP.... on a serious note.

Yes its worth it.

Over this past winter, around christmas particularly, even christmas day... Id sit thinking, gun? pills? razor blade? noose?

many in my family have taken their lives... i managed to fight through the tears screaming at the top of my lungs sometimes, full of rage, hatred, sorrow, grief... all at the same time.

i think the rage and hatred kept me alive.

ive been working on replacing those feeling since then.

Pain , depression , anger , can weigh one down.
These poisons arise out of the deep
seated sense of lack or deprivation.

Thats all it is.

Don't feed the lie that you are deprived.

Get a puppy. There are doctors that actually recommend that to patients dealing with depression.

My button popped off my jeans as I was walking into work today. And then when I was tying my scrub pants on, the cord broke. Someone's trying to tell me something.
Fate is telling you to walk away from that neurosurgeon life and open that nudist colony. Sh*t on jeans and scrubs.

I sometimes wonder why I am. I mean Why I am the way I am.

Do you ever feel like the pain of life far outweighs the joy and happiness that sometimes comes along?

I mean, is this really all worth it? Don't mean to bum everyone out. Just thinking out loud.

Discuss....

I think its time. I mean, if you watch a movie that really sucks, do you get up and walk out or do you sit there thinking it might just turn around completely?

Of what you have seen, will your movie completely turn around or will you get up and walk out? You have options.

What was it that Ernest Hemingway said? "Find something you love and let it kill you", or close to that.

There will always be bad times, but the good times should outweigh the bad. This aint no practice round, best do what you can. Where will you be in 10 years? 15 years? Well, what are you waiting for?

there is no 'do over' so I try to make the most of everything.

it sucks feeling down. 99% of the time I distract myself by trying to learn something new, or expand in an area I'm familiar with.

...this keeps me from sitting around thinking about the heavy stuff....usually.

Realizing nothing actually means anything and no one means anything,..no one is special,..'we're" not special in the cosmic scheme of things,...was very freeing.

helped me stop worrying about the world and other people,..or taking on others problems as my own.

now all I care about and work for is my family.

yeah life can suck,..but you have to make the most of it,..because you only get one.

if you're in a miserable situation, change your situation.

the painful confusion of dealing with new situations and routines is smoothed over by the reduction of stress due to your previous situation.

temporary Big Stress will equal Less Stress in the longterm,...basically.

just have to be willing to take that first step towards changing your life,..and then another one.

life seems to be a type of marathon.

to paraphrase Rocky, "it's not about how fast or hard you run,..it's whether you can keep running."

perception is everything. you have to try to see the good in the world too.

there's days walking down the street you go by a park and hear little kids laughing.

That's a pure and innocent sound. It's a good sound,..a natural sound. Learn to value and appreciate moments like that and the world can look and sound very different.

You Sir need a motorcycle. I heard once that you'll never see a motorcycle in front of a psychiatrist office unless it's theirs. Believe me it helps.

The purpose of life is living.


Try to do it well.
