Yep, this is an actual board. Congratulations to you.. you sad, lonely individuals. I think the best way to describe this board is to just copy paste the post that inspired it's trip on to /777/:
"There's too much happiness on this site already. We need more cold stuff, more darkness and unhappiness.
I propose a /grim/ board. Where we gather to share jokes that aren't funny. Grim stuff like gore perhaps. Murder stories. Genocide. Results of war. Pictures of areas in the dark. Pictures of crumbling ruins. Pictures of thing that are decreasing in value or are stagnant in value in the sense that they cannot get any more undesired. Also, Nigrachan is obligatory."

Lets have a minor tweak of the rules from the /777/, version. This board is not for gore. Gore posters will be banned. It's just for generally miserable shit, just go with the stuff that is in the above quote and you should be fine. Any further rules will be made up as we go along if necessary and will be added to this post.

Go Wild.

To request future /777/s use this thread.

Everything you do. Everything you see. Everyone you meet. Every cent you make. Everything you own. Everything you've achieved. Every time you get laid. Everyone you love. Everyone you hate. Everything beautiful. Everything horrible. Every moment you spend with her. Everything.
No matter what you try to hold on to, it will pass. As will you. You will die, and your rotten carcass will be forgotten. Your life, erased. Humanity will go extinct. The earth will crash into the sun. The sun will be absorbed by a black hole. Everything will crash into itself. The universe will explode, and everything you did will be forgotten. You are nothing. A drop of water in an endless sea, vanishing in the blink of an eye. Nothing.

Helps you to stop caring a bit. Humanity emphasizes the grandeur of being significant and worthy. This to me is only the ego talking, and I dislike the ego. We aren't friends. This nihilistic understanding helps clear the slate of false goals and starts the seeking of the pleasure that should exist in life.

>>3688
Why? To continue being more miserable? I'd rather succumb to the fate that should have happened that to escape and know that my home universe has left without me. Understanding the universe's mechanisms should be just that: an appreciative understanding and accepting your fate. To take action because you are afraid of death is a little silly. Sorry.

Dear Rosa
Every time I see you I get physically ill. I cant tell if I love you or hate you. But hey I know you don't want to see me and i don't want to see you so it would be for the best if you tried a bit harder to avoid me. I wont talk to you if you don't talk to me.

only once in my life did I ever feel that way about anyone

I would vomit if she smiled at me

five years later and I still think about her every other hour, five years later and she still stands across a field in my dreams, five years later and I still talk to her in my sleep

I don't know how far removed you are op, but don't do anything drastic and just let time pass

there will come a day when she looks at you again

so don't do something crazy today that you will regret when your time finally comes

What is this fucking biological trickery? I am certainly feeling it too. I have no problems talking to other more attractive women but there is this one girl who I'm so incredibly nervous around because I'm terrified what she thinks of me. I've barely talked to her but already the thought of her being with anyone but me hurts like a motherfucker. This feeling is so intense that I can't even concentrate on anything else while she occupies my thoughts. I should just man the fuck up and ask her out already, this can't continue, I'm even beginning to lose sleep over this. If she refuses I can begin the healing process I guess.

Is this love? It can't be, I don't even know her.

Excuse me for not being very /grim/ but you lot are about the only social life I have, which is I suppose grim in itself.

For those of you who choose to resist, how do you combat depression? Post tips to help other anons.
For me, looking forward to something is the key. Plan a walk in the woods, a cigarette or weed break, or counting down the days to a potentially good movie or video game. I go day by day like this. Sometimes its not so bad

who said anything about relinquishing self-determination? Just because one prays doesn't mean he thinks God's going to help him. I might not be as strong in faith as i used to be, but I've also come to realize the pointless nature of arguments over such topics as "6000 year old Earth" and evolution. To me personally my religion will always mean something to me, even if i don't necessarily believe all of it.

I agree with what some of the other anons have said. Music is what keeps me going sometimes. I suffer from mood swings, I'll go from sad and down to frustrated and angry. When I'm sad, I usually go fishing with some ear buds in and listen to Sunny Day Real Estate, or other tunes within the emo genre. When I'm frustrated, I run while listening to something intense such as Misery Signals or State Faults.

Go outside. If you don't have a job, get one. It's going to be hard at first, your mentality will accommodate to it eventually.
I was in a similar position not too long ago. Going outside ALONE with your thoughts does wonders. Bring music along as well. I don't mean to sound like some hippy faggot telling you meditation will solve your problems, but it helps. Go to a secluded area outside, and just think. Let any random thought cross your mind, and take note of your emotions when you think of these things. When you do this enough, you may find hints as to who you are, and what makes you happy. I did this for years, and eventually found self peace.

The girl I love and I can never become a couple because her parents are racist muslim douchebags. She claims she doesn't love me in "that way", yet she texts me and calls me everyday like crazy. More often than not I wake up because of her messages, every morning like clockwork. Also she constantly tries to change me. It already feels like we're couple, but without all the good stuff. I can't stop loving her, I can't live without her, I can't be with her. I just wanna die.

Right now you realize that you will never be anything special in your life. The fact that you are currently browsing and reading this means you're a nobody.
The idea of becoming a happy, successful you is futile. No matter how hard you strive to achieve your dreams, you will fail. Only 1% are actually living happily according to their personal goals and dreams.
You may think your happy but your not.

Right?! Why the hell does it matter? I come here because I get to say what's on my mind since I have no one to say it to in person, unless it's a stranger that cares to listen to my rambling for 10 minutes.

And even if it was a stranger, the only response I'd get is "Ughh. Ok.". At least here my message marinates in place for a bit so others can pass by and read it whenever.

I started out life wanting to make a substantial difference. I realized after noticing what people tend to value that they don't deserve the good I have to offer. Fuck 'em!
Yeah, it would be nice to make a scientific revelation so that the people that don't deserve my words will be flushed out as a result of their own mindless stupidity. Gotta catch up with new-age values or.. Darwinism!

In light of saying that, I would be one of them flushed out because I have a problem retaining and conceptualizing that crap that is spoonfed to me. I don't really care tho. Only those that are worthy should pass along. Enough of this old-age bullshit that seems to somehow find a firm place in a society that has outgrown it.

I'll get off my soapbox in a second, but if you see optimism as synonymous with self-deception, you should realize that pessimism is often times no less self-deceptive. Cut yourself some slack, jeez

When in the deepest valley of sadness, what moments in life do you look back on to cheer you up? While life seems hopeless now, what was the happiest time in your life?

For me, it would probably be my last year of high school. I had a small, tight group of friends, and loved Cross country. None of us were really 'popular', but we didn't care. Life was simply bliss. We would play Frisbee at the small park, sit around by the pool, and go to the lake. When everyone was busy, I went to a secret pond no one knew about, and just listened to some American Football and my thoughts.

Unfortunately everyone moved on during college. I look at these times with bitter sweetness.

It seems you will be leaving us soon — not through death, but through lack of depression. Though, for us left behind, left still here, the result is exactly the same. You will be gone, and we will remain.

This place, this /grim; it is a dark purgatory where we all wait in tears and blood for our fate to come. It looks like you'll be moving on to heaven; lucky you. I wave goodbye to you in much the same way as his friends waved goodbye to Frodo when he left for Valinor. Yes, you're going to a better place, but you won't be the same so there is a sense of loss, for all involved. You won't ever be returning.

I'm not going anywhere. Despite my lack of depression, I will still frequent this board every night. I'm not some faggy SJW that wants self approval by trying to talk anons out of depression, I will stay because that is who I am.

I have always felt a deep connection with depression,loneliness and misery. Not that I have been either of these things for long, but that I feel that you can find life's answers though them.

The most brilliant and unique minds of human kind have reached understanding through these very emotions. I am by no means saying those of you who are affected with these emotions are lucky, quite the opposite. I do believe you are all unique however. We can all learn much from each other.

I've been depressed for about 7 years and heavily depressed for 3 months (can't get out of bed or do anything.)  just a back story for you.

It took me so long to realise this, and that is that I've been raises my emotionally vacant/retarded people. I need emotional support but none has EVER been there. It's like "we are helping you so much"  and they are with money and free rides, picking up my shopping etc. But my father has never been emotionally open to me, even though I am to him. I don't think he even acknowledges or understands his own feelings or life experience. I think he's insecure and scared of them. Which has left me alone. Previously I thought he didn't talk to me because he didn't respect me. But you don't really need to respect someone to be open with them, just care about them and love them. For a long time I had this sensation of not knowing who he is and I didn't know why. I think it's because I grew up and realised how complex and deep people can be but he remained as empty as he ever was.
My mother is more open but still emotionally crippled and unstable. Her mum is dumb, and her father was abusive. Despite being more open (now) she was an even worse parent than my father when I was growing up, as even though my father is so emotionally vacant, he did actually do activities with me and my sister.

So now I'm in the worst place of my life crippled by depression, panic attacks and agoraphobia and I only have two emotionally retarded pieces of shit to look after me even though what I really need is someone to share with (who is actually open themselves) , and someone to be comforted by.

I've been diagnosed with aspergers and though I may be strange, I do think the label fits. It just looks that way because I was raised by retards and never figured out how to have proper relationships. I don't even have friends any more.

I've never been emotionally close to someone in my entire life and It makes me want to die.

I have the same problem, except slightly different, in that, through my father's emotional insensitivity, I never learned how to be a person. I was rejected my entire life and was told that the way I was is completely wrong. Now I sit in a room alone, weeping, numb, unable to connect with anyone. Always feeling like every person hates me. My emotions are messed up and I have a plethora of mental problems.

Please /grim/, if you ever have children, make sure you are in a good place, ready to give them love and allow them to bloom. You are going to create more suffering otherwise.

I can agree with OP. I have so many masks to put on I have no idea who I am anymore. What's real or what's fake. It is at times more than what I can bare.

Went for some therapy and I will see how that goes but I am not hopeful as anything I do tends to fail.

But OP... I understand my father is a Vietnam Vet who destroyed my mother's, sister's and my emotional state to a point of non recovery.

For a few seconds a mind finds itself devoid of the set it has been accustomed to most of its history. In this new state it finds itself free from the attachments to the past where opportunity, freedom, and serene comfort meet. Manifested is an atmosphere/entity that one should consider to be the state of mind to strive for. However, the problem here has already been made known, albeit indirectly. You cannot exist in this state if you are aware of it. For every time you happen on it you realize its presence; you are aware of it. In turn, you immediately reflect back on yourself, your accomplishments, what you have done to get to that point. This trail of thought inevitably resumes the state that you are most familiar with: a relentless concern of others; a relentless concern of how others conceive you; a relentless concern of how you see yourself. At this state, where self-reflection exists and where careless concern of others and yourself does not, thought stops. The potential for true thought is interrupted by the mind closing back into its state most familiar, restarting the cycle of endless social and personal identification, interaction, and validation prominently sought in society. It’s the ego that will never go away. Someone once called it the “little dog” that always chases you everywhere you go. It’s hard to find happiness when you know that you can’t realize/know/be aware of it when you are. Is this “ego”, or “little dog”, a name given to the state of mind brought about by society? What becomes of a child who grows up in a world of his own who eventually gets sucked into the world of society (alternatively named the ego)? The fact that such questions are even being asked means that the person who posed the question has reached the point of no return, for he is now aware. He can never be fully happy again.

Someone said that happiness is like a butterfly. Chase it and it will elude you, but focus your attention on something else and it will quietly sit on your shoulder. The child hops like a frog, he sings like a bird, he swims like a fish, he is already happy. He has no reason to seek it. Drag him into the world we created, and he realizes he can no longer hop like a frog, sing like a bird, or swim like a fish. He is held in contempt for doing so. He is no longer happy, and so, as the cycle of our lives go: the ego manifests, which seeks validation from others, looks upon himself, and looks upon others with judgment. He becomes aware of the concept of happiness. To an extent, he can no longer be that which he once was. Only a fraction of it if the attention is diverted from it within the society that created that state of mind.

Is it true that the only way out of this misery is to break down the barriers, the social rules, and to let continue the naive happiness of childhood into adolescence and adulthood? If true is the case where money must be sought for the minimal joys of its value, instea Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

Eeyore 14/08/06(Wed)17:55 No. 3648 ID: dfcfc2

This is kinda the way I see it. A child is born happy. A happiness borne from innocence.
As he grows up, his innocence is shed. He questions himself. He is embittered. He judges.
But in time, he gains experience. He begins to understand himself and his relation to the world around him and to his life. There, a happiness borne of knowing, rather than blissful, innocent ignorance can blossom. That is maturation.

I think when we have entire societies of people who are too wrapped up in their own mentalities, putting on airs to obtain the internal validation they seek externally, superficiality crystallizes and embeds itself firm in a group as custom.

I think in a way, we are all still children. The only adult thing about us is our bodies. Our psyche has yet to be reconciled appropriately with ourselves and the world around us.

How are you going to die /grim/? Be realistic.

I plan on staying in the Army even after college, maybe trying to be a ranger/contractor. Given that, there is always the chance of being shot in some shithole. I wouldn't mind giving my life so someone else could live. At least I would be remembered by that person, for some time.

I also smoke/dip, so cancer is there for me in my later years.

And lastly, If these two things don't kill me, suicide definitely will. When I'm old, and have no kids, there won't really be a point of living. Might as well just off myself to end the drag on life.
