It's A Wonderful Life

What brings this upon you?

Plenty of times when I was younger. If you are feeling that, go talk things over with someone you can confide in, it will probably do you heaps of good.

Not anymore. Often in my teenage years.

Nah. Too many good things happening right now. I had a hard time working for what I am accomplishing now but as time goes on I see that all of my current struggles are necessary for my future growth. And I'm finding out that it's never too late to make postive changes in your life.

I was really scared but I figured that it couldn't be too much less than where I was at the moment. And if I ever felt that I was going to slip, I'd bail. I know that I was at least smart enough to know when my survival instinct kicked in. Luckily, God was keeping an eye on me and gave me the right tools to build my life into something I can be comfortable with.

It's never too late, dauphin. :)

Lotsa times. Being born sure beats the alternative, though. Adversity breeds character, doesn't it?

slvoid 11-05-06 12:30 AM

Wish you had never been born. :p

slvoid 11-05-06 01:03 AM

Ok.. that was insensitive... perhaps if you'd just tell us what's going on?

Hate life, thats why i'm such a destructve mofo to my body when I drive/ride.

ecnetsixe 11-05-06 04:56 AM

question: who has lived a fuller life he who samples a little of a lot or he who follows a single path to fruition?

tell the answer. i want the right answer.

Stacey 11-05-06 05:37 AM

Lot's of times when I was was young.

blonduathlongrl 11-05-06 06:00 AM

No, I never had.
I've questionned this little thing called life, but never wished I wasn't born.

But the real question is why bring this up dauphin?
If this is how you feel, you shouldnt hesitate to go and talk to someone.
Life will never feel good if you question you being part of it at all.

if it helps dauphin i believe in the opposite of this.....life will ONLY feel good if you face the question of why you deserve to be part of it all.

difference between questionning where you belong in life or what life is suppose to be all about, then wishing you'd never been born at all.

well see now thats an interesting point. one must surely afford oneself the luxury of longing for a non-existence before one can clarify the reality of any present sense of consciousness. longing for ones non-existence (wishing we were never born) and truelly embracing that concept utterly, even for a mere moment, is perhaps the/a path to clarity of actual existence? hence one cant embrace an existence without entering and addressing the realm of non-existence. many dont. some do.

blonduathlongrl 11-05-06 07:45 AM

I sure hope the longing for a non-existence doesnt reach the point of no return.

there is no point of no return. there is no death and there is no living. there is no beginning as there is no end.

I believe we all have "life sucks" moments. Unfortunately some have a lot of those moments. What's important is how we deal with it.

bluebottle1 11-05-06 07:59 AM

Yes (and this without ever having seen "It's a Wonderful Life"), and I still have those thoughts on occasion. I think it's part of some of us. Just the way we're composed.

If there's something bothering you, talk with someone about it. It's not unusual and it doesn't make you some kind of loser.

I have a 18 year old bipolar schizoprenic stepson, my wife is pregnant, and I have a 2 year old to chase around as well. Sure, I'm happy we're going to have another child, and I love my kids...but sure...some days I feel like the quote "Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them". But you gotta take the good with the bad.

TexasGuy 11-05-06 08:12 AM

cuse i'm a loser and sooner or later you know i'll be there. you're getting closer, to holding the rope and taking the fall. cause i'm a loser... i'm a loserrrrrrrrrrr.

Loser - 3 Doors Down is a good song when one feels like that.

for me bad things (and i mean really bad things) seem to always come in groups. so you betcha i've wished i was never born. i try to remember a famous quote that i made up "this too shall pass, unless its a permanent thing, then it won't pass, and you're screwed, but most things will pass" or something like that. if it's regular teenage issues, they get overwith in time, then actually seem pretty small and petty when you get older. I remember things that were HUGE deals to me (hot new girlfriend's old boyfriend wants to kill you, failing important class, broke arm, parents fighting, piece o crap car, etc..) when i was in HS that now i kinda feel dumb for being so upset about it. however if your problem is bigger than that (hot new girlfriend's old boyfriend is actually trying to kill you, you got shot at school, lost your arm, parent's killed each other, or found out your car is stolen, etc...) you should find a good friend to confide in, and if your friends are typicaly HS friends, try a counselor or the******, or a bike forum. when i was a teenager i remember hating life for no reason, i would ask myself what about life makes me hate it, and i wasn't able to answer myself, some pre-med student friends of mine told me that's a normal hormonal change in your brain that just makes you depressed for no reason, it shouldn't be too extreme and it should go away between 18-21 but if it gets extreme or lasts into adulthood to seek pro help immediately. so then i just kinda ignored it and tried to fill my time with hobbies/friends/girls and it went away. now that im older that same thing happens sometimes, but it's usually because the foods i eat don't have much energy, so a meat&taters dinner or king size snickers can help, or im just tired/burnt out and need a nap/bike ride and im cool again. oh or play with my dog, sometimes he can bring me out of it too.

This is how real life and probability works.
