I have been thinking about this for a while now, I don't know about most of you but i work for a living and anime is one of the things i watch to get away from reality for a while, getting back on topic


The past few months i have lost 2 good friends at work both from cancer, and my oldest friend has been dianogesed(i hope that how you spell it) a.l.s. or lou gering's disease, i know that sometimes life can be a bitch, but shitfire man i don''t how much more i can take.

My father died of cancer about 23 years ago, and i thought the experiences i went through made me stronge enough to deal with it, and now i am not so sure.

Also i am worried about the economy, now i know that some people are probably sick and damn tired of talking about it, but it's a reality i don't know if i still have a job when i go back to work tomorrow, and you know it scares the living hell out of me.


My parents told me what it was like growing up during the great depression, and i do not want to go through that experience

sorry for ranting a little bit

Just hang in there.
Think about the other people in the old years who suffered much worse than you experiencing right now.


There's always someone more unfortunate than you.

Hey, at least, your job right now is not about stimulating pigs (manually wacking off the pig) just to pay bills during this recession. Yes, there's an actual job of that.

At least you have friends. I have none, only very few acquaintances.

My uncle is about to die with end-stage renal failure.
My dad is a chronic smoker and alcoholic (w/ an obvious liver cirrhosis).
I got shot and hit-and-run.

So, what's up, bitch?

He mentioned he's scared of living, pathetic.

Also, I'm guessing the kanji reads "ken".

I think someone needs a vacation. Take a few days off and go bunge jumping, sky diving, snow boarding, surfing, anything man. It seems like you've got your mind set on a bunch of stuff, which we all do. Find a girl? I'm assuming you put your real age down, 41, you might already be married by now, but you might even just be going through a mid life crisis man. Fight through it, crunchy roll's 15 year olds aren't going to be able to help you through this time through their smerky remarks "It's called life" I would say find a therapist, everyone needs one, because everyone's fucked up. Good luck man, take it easy and live a little :]

Alright, let's not make anybody angry or offended, here. Sometimes life dishes out crap. It happens. And it cannot be avoided. No one can go thropugh life without having some tragedy happen to them. I am still very young, only 19, and some days I feel like I'm 100 years old just because I've put up with so much CRAP in so little years. At one point it was overwhelming to me and yeah, I was seriously depressed. For two friggin' years. It was not pleasant. I did not feel or act that way for attention. I just really felt like I couldn't take it anymore. So mmt, I know exactly how you feel.

Fortunately, a couple of years ago I was able to drag myself out of that bad place. Not entirely sure how that happened...glad it did, though. XD Haha. Anyway, I know that there are days where it seems like the whole world is ending. And yes, there are some awful things going on. The economy is crap, the "war on terror" is stupid, and the war in Israel is really tiring (well, I think it is, anyway). And on top of that, people we are close to can have unfortunate things happen to them, such as cancer or committing suicide or whatever. So yeah, it can be pretty tough some days.

To keep yourself from feeling overwhelmed, you have to just take it one day at a time. Just one day at a time. It won't do you any good by stressing over things you don't have control over. I mean sure, if you need to grieve over the loss of a loved one, then by all means, grieve. But DWELLING on it won't help anybody. Saying to yourself "If dad were here he'd know what to do" won't help either. If anything, it'll make it worse and you'll pity yourself more.

That's another thing: self pity. Acknowledging bad things are happening is fine, but again, dwelling on it won't make it better. One thing that we should do our best to avoid is this: cynisism. Of course, we all have our bad days where we just want to bitch about things. And that's fine. but it's NOT fine to do that EVERY day. It'll just make you bitter and negative. So the next time you catch yourself thinking, "What's the point, it's not worth the effort anyway..." think the opposite! Because it IS worth the effort! Putting positive energy into things really helps! Maybe not all at once, but if you can get into that kind of a habit then over time it'll make you more excited about doing things.

And one last thing: count your blessings. I know that sounds cliché, but it's very true. There's a lot in life to be thankful for. Whether you're a working person in America or a Mexican picking strawberries. Everyone can find reasons to smile. You just have to learn to appreciate what you have. You might think "I like my cat but oh man she scratches the furniture and yowls during the night". XD So what? The cat might nuzzle you and purr and keep you company. I'D be thankful for a cat...I wish I had a kitty...

Ahem. Anyway. The thing is, crap happens. And it sucks. It sucks MAJORLY sometimes. But just because THOSE things suck doesn't mean everything ELSE has to suck along with it. If you have good friends you can talk to, or casual friends you see at work, or you like the tree that grows in your yard, or you like how the breeze feels on your face, or even if you have an annoying yowling nuzzly kitty, those are all little things that can make you smile at the end of the day. In my fullest opinion, it's the little things that make us happy. Again, that sounds cliché, but it's so true. So do your best to remember what you do have, and be thankful for them.

Just hang in there. I know you'll be alright if you do your best and remember to appreciate the small things that make you happy. That was lengthy, but I hope that helped.

think Lionna already managed to point out many good things for you to think about when life beats you to a pulp and then decides to practice kicking while you're trying to get up XD
but to answer the question of the title you're definately not alone in this, everyone can feel like you do for various reasons and pretty sure the majority of human kind does at one point or another >.>
I'm sorry to hear about your losses and by all means embrace the grieving process, it is helpful in moving on.
Although I'm personally blessed with having most relatives and friends still intact, I've still experienced other hardships to recover from.

as for the economy it is indeed a current issue but there's just not much you can do about it but accept the situation, realize that neither constant worry or ignoring of this issue changes it at all so you can only deal with it one day at a time.
just be glad the days you don't recieve an unemployment notice instead of going about your days worrying if you'll get it tomorrow instead.
such issues will only break your brain and spirit, and what a shame to have broken yourself down if it turns out that such a notice never gets into your hands ^^
although of course it's unrealistic to not take some precaution to the economic situation at all...
do what you can and then be annoyingly optimistic for the future ;P

"We... want to live in "always." That's why "always" can't bear the sadness, and runs away... which we notice only after it disappears... "always." I wonder if we will continue to lose our "always.""

the economy is exaggerated through the media. It's a sudden problem caused by people spending money that didn't exist or whatever. It's constantly on TV so we get more scared - I'm not saying it doesn't exist, but in comparison to problems like the environment, it's greatly exaggerated. I mean really, we've been warned about climate change for years now, and it's only vaguely mentioned on TV. But when money is involved, it's on constantly. Shows what our priorities are: The temporary problems. That have happened in the past I should mention, each time is different from what I can understand but that's besides the point, recessions seem fairly common.
