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.

Beyond -- 海濶天空 (Boundless sea and sky)


The song itself is in Cantonese, so I added translation:

Today, I see the swirl of snowflakes in a cold night
I (too) swirl afar with a chilled heart
I give chase braving wind and rain
Unable to make out the shadowy trace in the mist
There’s a boundless sky and sea
Would you and I change?
(Who are not changing?!)

Many times, I face up to cold shoulder and ridicule

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.

Any particular reason for that specific age?

Same here. Dying with beautiful scenery in front of me would be ideal. Dying in some cold hospital bed sounds miserable.

Eeyore 14/09/01(Mon)22:29 No. 3719 ID: 162482

For me, it is either suicide, accident, or disease.

Let me elaborate:
I have had suicidal tendencies for a while. Even made several plans on how to do it. Yet I have never done it. I don't know why, it seems that part of me wants to see the future.

I am often involved in some stupid stuff, and I rarely care about my safety while doing that stuff, so...
Although nothing killed me yet, but... You never know when will I run out of luck.

My mother and her mother both have diabetes, so there is possibility for that.
Also, I smoke, so there is possibility of cancer, as well.

But, on the other hand, who knows?

I'll likely end my own life. Current possibilities are severing my jugular or jumping into oncoming traffic. I don't necessarily want to die this way, but my brain has been going into suicide autopilot lately. Too stressed out for too long.

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

I can relate to this. There's something tremendously freeing and hopeful about it. It's as if for the duration of the track all social pretense about happiness and the naivety of it all is shed and what is left are emotions of pure melancholy that make me feel like I'm truly alive for the first time.

Sounds like a fundamental problem.
change yourself. you have to find out how you work then optimize yourself for your desired result.
change the world around you. you say your entire life is fucked up? change your entire life. do it slowly or all at once, its up to you.
find a sustainable lifestyle that makes you happy. This cannot be something temporary or something that makes you worse than when you started. I mean things like working towards your dreams or bringing life to others.
the way you think has more effect on your life than you think. Find a way of thinking that enables you to be happy and productive. A philosophy, spirituality, mental state of mind.
everything that happens in your life is a result of your actions alone. Whatever happens in the future is a result of your actions alone. You have around you the tools and information to change your life into whatever you want. You have exactly everything you need at any time. Search for things enough and you will find them. Sometimes they will come to you.
Only use the past as a reference on how to act in the present, don't dwell too long in the future, and live in the present. You will face obstacles in ways you cannot imagine, just keep going.

you are the architect of your own demise or your own salvation

to a better day

Eeyore 14/09/01(Mon)08:05 No. 3717 ID: 90cd76

I just try to have a lot of distractions. Hobbies, activities, movies, sex, anything. Usually, these things do very little to stop my depression from settling in, but I still have my occasional good days, so I guess it's just a way of improving those and being able to look forward to such times.

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.

Dear Jess,
It's better to go through a bad experience and learn from it than to wish it never happened, I suppose, but holy shit, you really know how to cut somebody down. All those years of abusing me, and having a realization that you treated me pretty terribly, just so you could ditch me on the metaphorical side of the road the moment you change so you can give someone else the lite version of you? And all while my family members are dropping like flies and I'm trying to come out to people as transgender, which you couldn't handle, of course. When you had thoroughly removed all of my confidence, there wasn't much I could do after you left except stare at the walls questioning how long it would take to bleed out from a stab to the neck. You didn't want me anymore, and you made it quite clear that no one else would; after all, I'm a mistake in God's eyes, right? Well, I'm glad you found a better man, or any kind of man at all, but I didn't quite recover from us as easily as you did.

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.

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.

This is a pretty shitty approach to life anon. If you approach life in a shitty way it's going to be shitty.

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

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.

Aside from existential problems which should be obvious the catholic church is one of the most charitable organizations in the world but perhaps more importantly a church or a congregation is sometimes the only sanctuary for people who seek a sense of community and want to better their environment. You could argue that their views on life can lead them to wrong conclusions and even questionable actions like pushing creation in schools, and you'd be right, but the tragedy of it is that in a crap infested world they are the only beacon of light to many.

Eeyore 14/08/30(Sat)23:31 No. 3708 ID: 545ebe


No, but there are churches, organizations and communities around religion. But that aside, if you want to talk about purely of concepts then yours offers no real emotional liberation or motivation which is to me sillier than an imaginary friend who loves you and looks after you.

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.
