Default Life is not a gift

I get told that life is a gift, it is beautiful, and that I should be thankful that I get to live.

But then these same people tell me I have it good. I'm sorry, but if being stressed out all of the time, wondering when you will get your next day off, constantly fearing that it will get worse, having so many disadvantages when it comes to your physical appearance (I'm a woman so my appearance unfortunately will affect how good my life is), having low intelligence, having severe depression, severe anxiety, being hated by a lot of people, getting bullied, etc, counts as having it better than most people, then I do not see how life is a gift.
I honestly think anyone who has never had the chance to live (for example they got miscarried and never ended up being born) are the lucky ones. I envy people who died as children. I envy people who died before they were born. I seriously envy all of those people. A lot of people feel sorry for them. I have nothing but jealousy towards them. I want to be those people so badly.

I think that the younger you die, the luckier you are.

I am 19. I wish I died when I was younger than 10, but I haven't. I guess 19 will be the age that I die then.

I'm also not willing to go to a mental hospital, talk to a suicide hotline, or see a therapist or psychiatrist.

A lot of the stuff you said are true, life is certainly not fair, and can be very hard. But that is the point, we're here to learn from hardship. However I absolutely feel and know what you're talking about, life seems that way to me too sometimes, but have to keep fighting. The struggle is not easy nor short, but you'll eventually get through it, which then will be and feel well worthwhile.

Wow, I feel the same way exactly. I often look at obituaries and news items and think "why them and why not me?" I envy all of those people too. I had to reach out to you. Just to let you know you are not alone in this.
