Like the saying goes, "If everywhere you walk seems to be a minefield, check to make sure you're not wearing exploding shoes."

Not sure if that helps, but I'll put it out there anyway.

Life sucks donkey dick. But dont get to down, these are my personal life hacks I use to get through my days.
1.Never expect anything out of anyone
2.Always be prepared for the worst
3.Suppress any sort of emotion.
And the most important one:
4.Have a phone/mp3 player/etc filled with a playlist that will help you tune everything else out.

Allow me to tell you a story of two trees, if you'll lend me your ear?

As most tree stories go, our two trees started off as humble seeds. They came from the same mother-tree and were alike in every way. You could even say they were twins. But they weren't just any ordinary kind of seed, they were seeds of a rare tree and were highly sought after. As such, a man came and purchased these two seeds to plant in his greenhouse.

Along his way back home one of the seeds wriggled out of the man's pocket and ended up by the wayside, forgotten. It was fortunate to find its way into some dirt, but it suffered all kinds of neglect that its twin would have at the care of the man. Indeed, the man took that remaining seed and planted it very carefully. He tended to it dutifully and it grew tall and beautiful. The seed that was lost still grew into a formidable tree, but it lacked the elegance its twin had. It was ragged and often had to endure drought and strong winds of storms. But it persevered through it all.

Eventually, after a great time had passed, the man who cared for the tree passed away and his children took over his estate. They didn't want a greenhouse but an open garden, so they carefully demolished the greenhouse and carefully replanted all the little plants. Of course, the tree was left as is. It enjoyed a light breeze for the first time, but it wasn't long before a storm came.

And do you know what happened then? The tree splintered and fell right over, irreparably broken! But its twin who was neglected stood strong through that very same storm.

Why did this happen, you may ask? It turns out that trees need some hardship to grow strong. The fiber in their wood needs to be tested to become more solid. While the tree that never experienced a testing wind may have been beautiful, that very upbringing which gave it beauty also gave it weakness.

Our lives are like this too. There are many unfair things that may happen to us, but it is these things which teach us to persevere and help us grow strong.

Wow, OP, your reason for life sucking is incredibly insignificant in the history of sucky things.

One of the things that has always made me question religion is just the amount of absolute garbage in this world and in the lives of everyone. I get that we need hardship to grow as a being and that that hardship makes us appreciate the good people and events in our lives. But I don't understand why any highly evolved being would want to stack the cards so heavily against any being at birth. I know that some will point to karmic debt, but it's hard for me to take it seriously when the offender is a day old infant whose mother was addicted to meth or was born into a war torn zone where they'll have very little chance of surviving. If I were a highly evolved, I know it would cause me great pain seeing so many people suffer, especially in cases where people have truly tried to make the best of it only to be knocked back down again.

Unlike some people in this thread, I don't think life always sucks. There's a lot of things that I'm grateful for. But there is a lot of negativity, and it doesn't help that these stories are the ones that are reported on in the news. I suggest just unplugging as much as you can from the news and the Internet as well. Go to places where people gather and make new friends, like an anime convention or something similar. Sharing a room is a good way to meet new people, and perhaps they'd be less likely to label you as toxic if they got to know you.
