I'm a hedonist and I have found it helpful. It helps to keep my mind occupied. But I do agree that suffering gives life meaning. For me, it justifies the pursuit of pleasure and compels me towards an interesting life. Stoicism is nice too though. It's very peaceful.

Felt like shit yesterday but I am so glad I don't today. The negative thoughts are gone. I know I am suppose to be out looking for jobs but I'll take it easy today. No more thoughts of suicide over stupid shit.

I'm glad to hear it. I gave stoicism a try starting yesterday. Read some Marcus Aurelius, some stoic groups, articles...it helped me to get through the work day and do my job well, not feel any dread. So I agree with you that it works. I try to keep busy to deal with my thoughts/voices. Hang in there.

Glad to hear you're feeling better. One day at a time.

you know what... whenever you have those intense sad depressed thoughts just light up a joint and listen to some happy music! Try it once and you will see =P



Fuck this unfair world and do whatever you can for yourself and dont look other people fake ''happiness'' to distract you. In my opinion, the most important thing that show who is a real fighter and a winner in this freaking life is NOT the successes you will have in jobs and interviews and test etc but how many times you failed but still stood up in your feet and keep going and keep trying and fighting. And you sound like a winner to me and a fighter

I am not those things at all. Truth is, these thoughts of mine do not go away and being unemployed for about a month really really angers me. At this rate, I hope she just kicks me out. Fucking tired of being alive and I won't go in detail but I'll truly be happy someday.

Since you believe that you will be truly happy some day (meaning that you still have hope for a better days) why do you want to kill yourself? I wish i had just 1 hope and i will be fighting like crazy for it!

I think a lot of problems in this civilization, especially in the US, stem from people being caught up in winning and losing, caught up in self-improvement, some stupid "being the best me I can be."

Not having a job or license doesn't make you inferior. According to my consultant, "all jobs suck." It's a rat race, and it totally blows. At you're not a wage slave, stressed out for a pittance, just making the rich richer.

When you're on your death bed, will you look back and say, "I wish I had worked more?"
Now that is good advice for everyone. Thank you for wise words, and so true
