Tried my best, have been deealing with depression and self harm lately. But I kind of hate psychologists, don't feel like they can do much for me.
And it feels like having cancer, you know you are going to die, but everyone else enjoys keeping you alive, keepeing you suffering, is always them an never you. They decide what do you want and what should you do. Pic unrelated (I just like old books). Maybe I just need some one to talk to, or even just writing it all.

Is this how you feel? Nothing in your life holds meaning? Everything is superficial because it has no meaning to you? You feel constantly tired and bored because there's nothing in your life that excites you on a deep, meaningful level?

If so, I was/am where you're at. Normal things in life don't have meaning for me. I don't care about sex, money, love, family, friends, popularity, ect... I seriously doubt I will ever have a normal life, and honestly, that comforts me.

Unfortunately, no one can help you but yourself. If you don't find out what holds meaning for you in your life than you will eventually kill yourself or at the very least just lay around and waste away.

Reading about and practicing Jungian psychology helped me get to where I am; I'd still be where you are if I didn't accidentaly discover it and try it out long enough to see results. It was shear luck finding it, but it helped me more than anything else has. I'm not trying to sell it to you; what worked for me won't work for everyone. You're going to have to try things out and hopefully you'll find something that works for you.

It took me a long time to get to the point where I accepted myself for who I am instead of hating and punishing myself for what others thought I should be or what I thought I should be based on what I percieved to be what others wanted. I'm by no means 100% happy and fulfilled but I'm a lot closer than I was only a few years ago.

I want to be clear. I'm not trying to prevent you from commiting suicide. I don't care about saving your or anyone else's life. I know first-hand what kind of hell life can be; I also know it can always get worse. In fact, I have a couple of 'emergency exits' just in case I slip backwards into the meaningless, depression filled state I was in. I refuse to live that hell twice; it's the only thing I'm truely afraid of.

What I'm trying to do is ease your pain as much as I can, because I've been where you are and know what it's like to suffer like you're suffering. The only thing I hope I can get you to understand/feel is that you're not alone, someone else knows what you're feeling, and someone else cares about YOU and YOUR PAIN and not saving your life because of the taboo of suicide or because they're terrified of death. I recognize that this is not about me but about you and how you're feeling. I understand that this is not about me trying to 'fix' you or patronize you by suggesting that you don't know how you're feeling or what you're feeling is wrong and if you just copied everyone else and lived their version of life that you'd be fine. Fuck everybody else. Most 'normal' people are fucking stupid when it comes to things like this and do infinitly more Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

not going to comit suicide any soon, if comforts you to know. Promised to sombody, one of those "stupid people". I see it as when some one injuries but is mature enough to ignore the pain, it would be more painful for all those "stupid people" to see me die than it is for me to live.

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post something like this. Basically I'm looking for something akin to 4chan's /adv/. My post isn't about finding a girlfriend so no one has any interest in helping me there.

I'll try and keep this short and sweet. I'm very unsatisfied with where I'm living and what I'm doing right now. I'm finishing up my third year working towards a computer science degree. At one point I was convinced I would be happy doing this, but nowadays I'm not feeling motivated, both in and out of class. A lot of friends I've made in this program are constantly coding, working on projects outside of their classes as well, and I figure if I don't have that sort of drive then this might not be for me. In classes, I'm keeping up, doing what it takes to make the grade, but I'm not soaking up all I could be like someone who actually enjoys what they're studying. What sucks is I'm not sure what I'd like to do, either.

What I'd like to do is move closer to my girlfriend; she lives about 2 hours away in an area I feel like I'd be happier in. I want life experience in general, like living on my own and managing my own finances. I've lived with my parents the last 20 years and I've held jobs and managed my money internally, but I've always had their support for living necessities. Problem is, I know it's extremely hard to find work, especially well-paying work, if you're not a graduate or skilled in some trade. I only have 3 years of college education and retail experience to put on my resume. I'm extremely doubtful I'll be able to find suitable work with that.

So I guess my question is this: should I stay or should I go? If I stay, how do I stay motivated to continue my school work, or how can I identify my passion so I can work on commercializing it? If I go, how will I find work that pays well enough to allow me to stay afloat? What kind of trade would allow me to start working relatively soon and make comfortable paychecks if all I'm interested in is making money?

Useless 15/03/21(Sat)17:09 No. 326

Can't think of advice besides 'suck it up'. You know what you have to do, don't throw away 3 years of work. Even if it's not what you want to do in future it can set you up for your next step and your independence.
Don't focus on the work, focus on the goal you're gonna achieve by completing it to motivate you. Instead of fucking yourself now to move away wait til you graduate and be in an excellent position to do so.

Girls hang out with guys they used to date because they intend to get some use out of them using the premise of sexual gratification at the very least.

If you think she is cheating on you, your relationship is probably shit anyway. Either she is cheating on you, or she isn't but you are too paranoid to trust her.

Either she is a cheating hobag, or you are an insecure twat.

So I've dealt with depression and social anxiety most of my life and I'm 24 now. I'd say besides my music I'm pretty much unmotivated. But I'm not even that good at that. Don't care about making a shit ton of money and spending it on crap I don't need like a lot of people. Every time I look for a job it's through the filter of what I can handle without collapsing from mental exhaustion and slipping into a worse depression.

I keep getting hassled to go back to college and get a bachelors degree because it will "open doors for me". Which I think is bullshit. The only thing it's going to open is a door straight into massive debt. If I had an idea of what I wanted to do and was motivated I would go, but because I'm clueless and unsure I don't want to throw away money. I already did that with an associates degree and here I am now still unemployed.

The future looks bleak for me and I can't "fit" so to speak. I see people around me getting by just fine and enjoying life. If anybody knows anything about MBTI I'm an INFP. I've always felt like I never fit in, but I never had the confidence to forge my own path.

Every day I'm burdened by the question, "Is this all there is to life?" I understand you need to work to survive, but it's like somebody dropped me in front of a maze and said go do that. And I'm just thinking "fuck you, why would I go through all that effort for absolutely nothing? I'm not gonna be part of your fucked up chaotic system". And to be clear I'm not criticizing people who want to go through that maze. I'm just saying it caters to certain people and if you fall outside that you are generally faced with a rough time. Especially when you voice these concerns and people just tell you to stop complaining and do things like everyone else.

I just want to know. Is this me? Is this my fucked up mentality and has someone been through this and came out the other side happy? I need to know if someone has made it past this because for me it's hard to see things getting any better right now. Fuck

Realize now from reading others posts here that my problems are really petty and trivial in comparrison.

I'm in my early thirties. I've been very unsuccessful thus far in life. At present, I have no friends outside of the internet. Lost my job two weeks ago. Car is acting up. Still living with my parents. Never have had a girl friend. Feel like my life is just one big rut. Went to college years ago and fully paid for two semesters entirely with money i earned from my first job believing fully I could get some sort of grant to take care of the rest of the semesters, but for whatever reason I did not qualify for any, so two semesters of college and an emptied savings account later and the next nine years I worked full time in retail.

You are not alone brother. I'm 25, I did finished economicshere in romania, i got a job... i earn 350 dollars per month, i dont have friends, i never had a girlfriend. few months ago my father died 6 months ago and me and family struggle, can barely get passed every week, with the money i earn. after our loss, i pretty much closed contact with online friends (only ones i had) because i just want to be lonly, dont need compassion or pity. The walls around the yard might fall every day, the roof is leaking, winter is coming, gas bill will be expensive, and i feel like crying thinking at it all, but there is nothing more, i can do, i'm going to go foreword like russians used to say in ww2, foreword no matter what, maybe another city might offer you other choices?

I offer a mentorship program that some of you might be interested in. As it is, I'm pretty busy with my businesses and game development, but it's great that you guys are wanting to make a positive change in your lives. I'm 28 myself and was in a similar rut to many of you, I've got my fair share of problems and woes as well, but I can manage them easily enough through a few different methods.

I'm not saying I'm better or have my life more together than anyone else in this thread, but I no longer lothe myself or seek escapism all day, I get a decent amount of things done every day with proper scheduling and I'm in a loving relationship as well.

I'll be straight up with you guys, I think everyone in this thread should get social security disability benefits and join my mercenary band of freelance artist/desingers/skilled folks of all kinds, there is tremendous talent here, but it's getting eaten away at by depression, ennui and melancholia.

I know a lot of you have secular jobs that take up a lot of your time and that was one of the biggest sources of stress in my past, but now I get a barely livable wage each month and I make do with it; in honesty I prefer it this way because it forces me to rely more on my wits and thin outside the box if I want to have more than 100$ at the end of each month.

I'll answer any questions anyone might have about anything I'm reasonably knowledgable in, so don't hold back. I'll check back here in a couple of days, anyone who wants to get at me can email me.

when i was a kid around 10 or 11 i learned the word 'transsexual' and i thought that might apply to me, but i was in a rural environment with no-one i could talk to about it so i thought it was twisted and deviant and fucked up. then my older brother got addicted to heroin and almost tore my family apart and i swore to myself that i was never going to make trouble like that for the family, never going to bring shame to them like he did. fortunately i didn't have a heroin addiction to be ashamed of unfortunately i substituted that for being a trap because i was dumb when i was younger. so i told myself that being transgender was the worst thing i could ever possibly do to myself or to others. then my parents sent me off to a all-male school which i hated but i didnt want to let them down like my brother had so i just tried to kill the tranny in me and keep my head down. then when i was about 16 i started geting really depressed, drinking, smoking pot, oxycontin (ironic, no?), the whole 9 yards, to escape how fucked up i felt.
when i was 18 i went to university in a different city away from my family, thinking i could be free to do the whole trans thing away from them, but i didn't. i made friends and then i told myself that by being a tranny it would be letting them down or betraying them and they would all hate me. i was too scared to do anything more than occassionally crossdress in my dormroom and then i'd feel ashamed for weeks afterwards. i spent the next 2 years drinking myself into oblivion, suicide attempts etc etc.
but then i flunked out, moved back home and stopped drinking, got a job and just worked and saved money. still living and acting s a guy, but not at all feeling comfortable as a guy and hating that the world saw and treated me as male.
recently i moved country and am now living alone and working. i have enough space and money that i could try be the trap i think i was supposed to be. but i think i succeeded in killing the transgender inside me. like, it used to be i'd crossdress and feel some kind of authenticity but now i barely feel anything. but i still hate the fact that i am a male and when other men treat me like i'm one of the boys i want to scream. i hate my body, body hair, flat chest, dick, height, shape. but i used to feel like if i looked more feminine, that that would be ok. i used to be able to imagine what i'd like to look like or pick out features in y appearance that i like. now my body is completely alien to me. i don't recognise my face in the mirror at all. i function socially by just trying to be inoffensive and agreeable and not causing too much trouble for anyone, and the rest of the time i just get stoned.
i don't feel like i have a personality at all.
i've got heaps of student debt and i work in a dead-end job. i have no idea what i want to do long-term. i could go back to university but with no idea what i'd study Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

I guess that's why we're all here though, right? Okay so I've tried everything I can think of from starting things slow and building up the friendship with them first to the point in which they feel they can trust me with anything and the answer is still "I'm sorry I just don't like you in THAT way" or "I... Don't see us working at all" but I've also tried going in full ham, just straight in no fucking about "let's fuck" and still got nothing, any tips?

Do a mixture of both. Be a nice guy, get to know her, but use subtle clues to show you want to be more than just friends. Always escalate the relationship, ask her more and more personal questions, watch her to make sure your not overstepping boundries, and generally treat her like a human being. Being small and scrawny doesn't mean shit, as long as you look like you take care of yourself, and you have confidence, your sure to find a girl. Don't spend too long, Oh also, always be receptive.Also, don't take to long, I've found girls tend to loose romantic interest after about a month or two, even if she was really interested in you, she will assume you don't feel the same way and move on mentally. If you get tunnel vision for that one hot girl, chances are you not only will not get that girl, you won't notice the 3 or 4 other girls that were showing signs that they like you.

Has anyone done work like this before or used these websites? Will I be able to use Open Office or will I need to pirate MS office? Is the pay worth the time investment? Can I do this work for less than a month and just drop it?
