I think being online too much is what causes it. Like, you're bored because being online isn't fun. And you're depressed because you're not getting enough sunlight. It's almost like a drug addiction. The worst for me is when I window shop on Amazon/Ebay etc. for hours sometimes just looking at everything I wanna buy. Thankfully I'm usually at least able to stop myself from actually buying most of it. I hate my TV speakers, but I also hate the clutter/complexity of surround systems. So for about a fortnight, I've been incessantly window shopping increasingly expensive overpriced sound bars. I also spent an hour today browsing dvd/vcr combo units. It's like the fact that I like tons of different things but also require a minimalist aesthetic to my environment are constantly at war with each other. I also hate being limited to only one console I can buy games for, but multiple consoles are clutter. I go through cycles of buy, store in basement, donate, repeat.

It's even more lamer when someone here creates a thread to kiss a mod's ass. Back then, if you create a mod thread, you would be almost on the top list of being the next mod. Too bad. It's back then. =P

But seriously why is everyone so sad here? You're alive right. That's a good start.

I am not sure they are.

I think its because we don't all experience things the same way, or from the same perspective. Some people are optimists, some are pessimists. Different personalities and circumstances.

Should we be more grateful? Sometimes. But we can't assume to know what another person has on their plate until we've walked a mile in their shoes.

That is true, we all see things differently.

I think there are a lot of people who probably talk about how their lives are depressing and boring because maybe they just feel that way. I think some exaggerate to get attention whereas there are others who really do suffer in their everyday lives. It's hard to know for sure. I know for me, I am very happy with my life right now. There are times when I'm down and times when I have absolutely nothing to do but I think that's everyone. Everyone goes through their ups and downs.

They are probably bored because they actually have good lives. Take it from me; when your life gets 'exciting', it's rarely a good thing. Many humans take advantage of what they do have and long for what they don't. They want their lives to be interesting like it is on TV, and I was one of those people at one point. Then my life decided to get 'exciting' by becoming excruciatingly and emotionally painful, and although I made it through it in tact, all I wanted was for peace to come back to my life.

The true good in life comes from appreciating the smallest of pleasures and appreciating the moment for what it is; the small pleasures are the most unexpected and the most harmless kinds of joy, which can yield some of the greatest nuggets in life. If you appreciate your life, even in repetitive times, you'll hardly ever think of it as boring because you' realize that you still have the ability to shape your day and your attitude to be whatever you want it to be in that environment. Shape your days to be interesting by breaking your routine will allow you to then shape your life into something unique and interesting, and breaking your routine can be as small as enjoying a snack you typically don't buy or walking somewhere that you've never been.

But perhaps I'm a little too optimistic

Just wait when it gets to where you cannot concentrate on watching anything for RL butting in. To the die-hard anime enthusiast, there is no greater curse. Then it affects remembering the fun you had.

Most likely otherwise why would they post anything on here?

Because only here is where we can post anonymously or with an alias telling the true, to no one ever know it, some see it as moderns dairies maybe. The sad part of this is that people can tell both, who are you or how are you emotionally.

They're assuming it isn't real because many things online aren't. Its not you. I hate it too, especially when fake people call other people fake. Those people are snakes. With their fake professions and fake friends. Who cares if such people don't believe you? They're full of shit anyway.


If someone says they're feeling good I'm less likely to believe them than if they say they're feeling bad. Like someone said, the world is too messed up with bad crap going on for those kinds of people. Unless you're high 24/7 or a Kardashian thats bullcrap.


Thank you for your very kind words. I know the internet is full of fakes and those with 'book knowledge' and no experience behind it. (Not that book knowledge is bad mind.) But I must admit that I care if people believe me or not since one of the few good traits I have is my honesty and I need/want to protect that. But by the same token I extend the presumption of honesty to all too. I've been burned for it, but I still would rather trust then not. But I again thank you for your very kind words; they meant a lot to me.

Personally I don't think my life is that bad but I sometimes post like it is cause I'm messed up inside and sometimes everything just feels depressing. I guess when you're writing stuff online those inner feelings come out easier than in real life.

Objectively, life is boring. It just coincides with the symptoms of depression. But being bored does not necessarily mean depressed.

Why do we create entertainment if life is intrinsically fun? You can only get so much out of looking at the sky or rainbows.




In addition, the more intelligent you are, the harder it is to please you. E.g. little kids are dumb and underdeveloped, right? They get entertained so easily. Like blowing bubbles can make them happy.

Or when they're crying, and I'm singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars out of tune to them, they'll stop and smile. If i did that to an adult, they would be annoyed.
