Default "Hope"

I have a "see what happens" approach to suicide.
I guess for some people that's just hope. I don't like calling it that because it doesn't come off as being like a grounded solution. I like painting what could happen as a possibility that's almost pointless not to observe, because that's something my thinking brain can understand. That keeps me alive without really keeping my "hopes" up.

Sometimes even that feels pointless, though. Sometimes I'm just suffering because whatever, fuck me I guess. Like there's no reason for it, and no reason to endure it.

Better to post that here than to crave sympathy from actually nobody.

I wish for you that you find the good path.

BTW, obviously, you're a fan of S&G's "The Sounds Of Silence". One of my favorite songs.

I know how you feel. I used to feel that way as well. I have since come to understand however that suffering seems to bring a new kind of awareness, though I believe that it isn't necessary for having this new kind of understanding, and in fact I believe that suffering isn't really necessary at all. For me, meditation really helps in understanding myself and things more clearly. Also, listening to Alan Watts lectures on YouTube, and watching the thinking allowed videos (among other sources for overall health) have really helped me as well I think. Lightening up on myself and treating myself and others well has really helped me too (not to say that you don't already do these things). Staying away from unenlightened television helps me too I think.
