Do you ever feel like your life might as well be over?
says Jaxxi on Jan 13th 18 (#817559)
No. I find that the less I expect from others, the less I'm disappointed.
says Linnster on Jan 13th 18 (#2711804)
Amen to that.
says SynysterGates on Jan 13th 18 (#2711915)
Same with me.

Not much going on so why be living only with hopes better days are on the way.
says LorraineTwevlehundredRaineTwelvehundred on Jan 13th 18 (#2711812)
It could be worse. You could always hook up with me.

The worst case scenario would be you marrying me, willingly. Which, I assume, would make you completely out of your mind.
says ZonkeyBalls on Jan 14th 18 (#2712176)
ha ha I am completely sane so better forget that scenario. Besides you aren't in my part of the world . If you were I would meet you for coffee just like all the people who want to be friends.
says LorraineTwevlehundredRaineTwelvehundred on Jan 14th 18 (#2712183)
Being friends is the most important part of any love relationship. Perhaps you have been dating all of the wrong men...
says ZonkeyBalls on Jan 14th 18 (#2712186)
Not any more I stopped dating or even trying .

You are skeptic and you have a very good reason to be. There's nothing I can do. Nobody can ever turn a skeptic into a believer. At least, I can't. I feel remorse for not being able to do stuff, which is also a bloody counter-intuitive thing to do. But, we all have our burdens.
says ZonkeyBalls on Jan 15th 18 (#2712506)
I am familiar with despair.
says Piper2 on Jan 13th 18 (#2711819)
It's just getting started.
says Thibault on Jan 13th 18 (#2711824)
Hopefully not over, but there comes a time when we realize our best years (health wise) are probably behind us.
says JustJimColo on Jan 13th 18 (#2711848)
I enjoy burping.

Coming to terms with sexual abuse. My anger turned inward and I was on a mission to kill myself. I got past it, but for a long while, I didn't see myself living past the age of 23.
says MonaLea on Jan 13th 18 (#2711958)
Bummer! I'm glad you got past it! Good for you!
says Rooster on Jan 13th 18 (#2712033)
Thank-you but I am never past it. It's more like I learn to live with it without killing myself.
says MonaLea on Jan 14th 18 (#2712239)
Glad you fought the demons and won. Hugs.
says StarzAbove on Jan 14th 18 (#2712228)
I've always tried to be optimistic and make something out of nothing. I found out I was only fooling myself. Still trying, with a little bit left to offer...
...and still the fool.
says OldRivers on Jan 13th 18 (#2712025)
My Grandmother once told me, 'you have to go down with your boots on'. I admire that.
says PhilboydStudge on Jan 13th 18 (#2712095)
At my age every year is a bonus....
says JD on Jan 13th 18 (#2712035)
I have been thinking that way for many years.
says Tiffanee on Jan 13th 18 (#2712044)
Life is a blessing we have all have moments of feeling down just remember we all have someone who loves and cares for us that's worth living for.http://data.amirite.net/user_im...a7e94c5b02.jpg
says Metal_god14 on Jan 13th 18 (#2712086)
Oftentimes I have felt that way. It's something I continue to work on.
says PhilboydStudge on Jan 13th 18 (#2712096)
Nope, can't say I have.
says primeiro on Jan 14th 18 (#2712223)
I've had those thoughts when I was in extreme pain, I didn't care whether I lived or died.

At a Marine Corps Ball one year, I attended with a Korean War Marine who had fought at Chosin. In a series of engagements that they made as part of their retrograde movement, his company was tasked with one of the flanks positions which entailed that they sweep the crest of the connecting hills of enemy to keep the lane clear. At some point they came to this one hill that was being hotly contested. They charged the hill and made the crest before he and his company were driven back off by an overwhelming Chinese force, only to have he and his fellow Marines regroup and charge back up and drive them off again. This seesaw battle went on for most of the day and each time, they came back to their step off point with fewer and fewer Marines and ammunition.
They were ordered up the hill once again and, at this point he knew "this was it," he said. He didn't expect to come back down. They formed up and stepped off again in to the whirlwind when, at that same moment, Corsairs came in right over their heads and blew the Chinese off the hill for good.
Concluding the story, he turned to me and said, "after that, when I came home and got out, I never figured any day would offer me anything so insurmountable again that I couldn't handle it." "Gravy, he said." "Every day I wake up is just gravy......."
Useful instruction. I try to maintain the same outlook.
says Freeranger on Jan 14th 18 (#2712258)
What a story!
It's all in perspective!
says Budwick on Jan 15th 18 (#2712471)
Now and again I suppose...Surely wouldn't want to do it all over again with any similarity to this one.

Then I listen to a new song and say. Ok. That was worth it.
