What do you do

When nothing makes sense to you anymore and you may have lost the will to live. I simply dont see the point anymore. It will leave food for others. Too many people on this planet to survive much longer anyway. Taking one for the team. Your Welcome. There should be an option available for people that dont need to be here anymore. I would gladly take that option. Gladly Save our dieing planet.

Everyone to varying degrees shares these same challenges. An elder mentor of mine, who was very tuned-in universally used to say: "you wouldn't believe the crazy thoughts that go through my mind sometimes; but i never dwell on them or allow myself to fall into the trap of trying to fight force with force. I turn to the side, deflect the negative and keep moving forward. Forward ever, backward never."

I have been...

... sick every day for the past six years. I can barely leave my home. Sure, I have a home, great. I see homeless people who are obviously healthier than me, no way I could dive through dumpsters all day long.

Hi,

Don't bail! Things will make sense later - they usually do. There's enough resources on this planet for everyone if we're not all too greedy. Enough is as good as a feast. Hang in there!

I believe humans generally are greedy, awful people, but nature isn't a lost cause. I'm an expat in a tropical country, and it only took a few months of covid for nature to reclaim what we had manicured. Should we destroy the planet enough we can no longer exist in our billions, the earth will heal (but maybe over a time unfathomable to us).

What?

Leave to someplace exotic, stepped in history, rich in culture and where the locals aren't as smug and aloof as Vancouverites but have a passion that spills into their everyday lives. You will find it inspiring. Sometimes the grass is greener, elsewhere. It's definitely more interesting and fun.

Go to Mars!

Agreed! There should be options. ..
Unfortunately this is not an ideal world so even if you did leave us, there’s no guarantee it will help feed another person.. Better to stay and provide your real and valuable critique of our existential reality. What, if nothing else, would be the point of all this unlimited suffering ?

Not so! In varying degrees we all have an upside and a downside. Its best to avoid the negative-ifying and firstly take a good look within ourselves. Like the great truth at the roots of all this World's valid faith patterns: "You be the change that you want to see in this world." But taking an honest look at ourselves requires the perspicuity and guts to tackle our greatest enemy; which is our own shadow side." - Forever Jung :-)

Advice from someone who’s clawed their way out

Aug 5, 2020 at 6:07pm

First of all, know you are not alone. Find the secret tribes of people who feel the way you do. Read Reddit threads, YouTube comments. Read poems and listen to songs. Find words that hit a chord.

Second of all, feel. Even if it’s all you do that day. You have to feel it all to heal, even if that feeling is despair. Remember that rock bottom provides a firm foundation to build a new world for yourself.

Third, take a look at the people around you. Who makes you feel supported? Who makes you feel like shit? Improve connections with the former and be ruthless in cutting out the latter.

Fourth, be your own reaper. Get a black book and make a list of your addictions. Drugs? Sex? Booze? Coffee? Porn? Weed? Social media? Kill em all, one by one. Find healthy habits to replace them. Most people who think they’re flirting with the devil are really just his cuck.

Fifth, grab your book again. Write down the thought patterns that have been holding you back. Feel unlovable? Feel unworthy? Ask yourself why. Get all these shitty thoughts out and face them once and for all. Know that these are societal lies and programming at work. Tear the page out and set it (carefully) on fire or bury it. Write down new encouraging thoughts to replace them. Talk to yourself as though you are your own best friend << (this last part is EXTREMELY important).

Sixth, find support from someone outside of your circle who can provide unbiased feedback and who you can pay to cry to. Talk therapy can change everything. Trust me.

Seventh, know that healing takes time. Give yourself the gift of patience. And again (this is so important) talk to yourself like a caring friend, not an enemy. We all come in alone and leave alone. Be good company to self first and foremost.

I see you. I know it’s fucking hard. But please stick around. We need your superpowers, passion, vision and love.

Excellent advice ... much much thanks. And likewise the advice to: 'Face your own worse enemy - your own shadow side.' Yes yes yes !!! Reminds me of of the greatJimmy Cliff's song: "You can get it if you really want but you must Try Try Try Try; You'll succeed at last."
