In the moments where I feel like that, I keep reminding myself that a lot of people are in inconceivably worse situations than me (who'd be ecstatic to switch places).

By fade away, do you mean suicide? Or just escape from society?
Either way, I've thought about both. The mind is your worst enemy. When something like this happens, I just shut it off. Obviously it doesn't work for everybody, if someone's bipolar, then they can't control themselves without the help of medication. But if we're talking about normal people, then it's easy to discipline your mind so it doesn't think about bad things.

Just sleep it off

Time for nap

I would rather dramatically exit life instead of simply fade.

Been right where you are and that's pretty much what did . Sometimes you just have to reinvent yourself.

I'm more the type to end with a bang.

Sounds depressing but i have those moments regularly lately i have noticed o.o


I think you're too reliant on other people if this is how it reads.

Yeah, it's common for people to feel that way. I hope you can be happy with yourself however and not rely on others for your entire happiness. It's not a healthy lifestyle and it'll drain you.

Nope, if something has me upset it doesn't make me quit, it makes me go harder at that thing or person frustrating me.

Of course. There isn't a single day that goes by that those thoughts don't pop up in my head and those lovely little voices try to whisper sweet nothings of "everybody hates you so go die" or something else delightful along those lines. Some days in moments of weakness I listen to them and give in to that despair, and some days I don't; it's all a matter of where I am mentally and what's going on in my life. It's really easy to feel like you just don't belong anywhere or that you'll never be good enough or any other horrid thought or feeling that would bring you to tears. Some hide it better than others, but even they can feel pain. It's just part of what makes us people. (Except for sociopaths. I really wouldn't even know where to start with them.)

Ever since a really bad series of events happened to me after I graduated from high school a while back I've lived my life practically in seclusion as a shut in out of my fear of people and developing some really bad social anxiety. I ended up losing a lot of really close friends one way or another and in the end I was completely alone. I was practically driven mad by my various mental problems and thought about killing myself multiple times. (Even after seeking help which ironically enough just made me feel worse.) There were even a few times I attempted to do so but couldn't find it in me to do it. Eventually I ended up in the hospital and my psychiatrist diagnosed me with depression and a mood disorder. With this and my inability to socialize properly with others due to how my brain is wired I found things like trying to find regular work or form friend groups all by myself to be next to impossible tasks (and with my social anxiety starting conversations couldn't be done either as it would cause me a great deal of physical pain every time I tried to talk to others since the fear would build up again and again), My parents pressured me constantly and after a lot of tedious amounts of paperwork I ended up applying for social assistance for people with disabilities. With it I applied to school about a year ago and am going back for my second term in about a week. I still have many difficulties in my life and my mental problems and other problems still persist and will easily continue to do so for a long time to come, but I'm trying very hard to get my life together regardless.

My point is that no matter where you are in life and no matter what you have or how many people are there for you, be it no one or tens of thousands, it's going to happen at some point to pretty much everyone. That's just a part of being alive, my friend. You can try therapy, meds, training your mental state on a mountain somewhere in seclusion or what have you, but that's not going to just magically make the problem go away. Mental illness doesn't work like that. The important thing I find is to just keep trying. Yeah, you're probably going to fail. A lot. Believe me, it'll happen over and over again, but someday things will get better. Just remember that no matter what anyone tells you it's not your fault for feeling that way. Those things in your head aren't your thoughts; they're things brought about by a chemical imbalance in your brain and nothing more. There will always be days where things will be absolutely terrible, but it IS possible to make it through them.

If you ever want to talk or just want someone to vent to, feel free to contact me. The same goes for anyone else reading this who may be feeling like that. Just try not to bottle up those feelings too much because I know from personal experience that it only hurts all the more. It's important to talk about stuff like this and support each other by being open. I mean, we're a community, are we not? May as well act like one ha ha.

Had that feeling during a stint of unemployment. Finally pushed through it when I went back to school part time while working. Really helped to have a goal to work towards.
