I had a great loving family... I unfortunatly made some bad desioins in my own life.. As much as i'd like to blame someone for my own life mess up's I can not..

No.. I commited no crimes or killed anyone...I still made some pretty ****ty choices..

I may be 42 years old and it took me a long time to learn from my own ****ty choices..
I just may be at that point right now.. where I maybe learn from past errors..

I do say may-be because I'm not going to make a promiss to you or me that a may or may not be able to keep..

Happy New Year--- Calig..

Well, i'll be honest and say that i was one of the people that picked the 1st,answer. Ey, it doesn't mean you're suicidal i hope... cause i'm just sad lol.
Has anyone ever felt like this and this is the reason why,
I did matter to a lot of people, i loved to help people and they'd always ask. No matter what i'd take time out of my day to help other people and i loved doing it. But it seems the older that i've got the more people are either solving their own problems or just not asking for help. I feel just like i'm a support type of person, if i'm not supporting someone else then i'm sad myself.

Damn a lot of people have crappy lives. I hope everyone gets better though. This is terrible soo many people don't have even decent lives. I love everyday of my life, I wish more people could feel the way I do. Unfortunately it isn't that easy.

Life is so fascinating and intriguing to me. The ups, the downs, the lessons, observing and feeling others, the emotions...I can honestly say that I love it. Does it mean I'm happy everyday? Absolutely not. There are days I wish I could crawl under a rock with a bottle of liquor but that doesn't make life any less beautiful to me.

I didn't have a great childhood. I learned my fight or flight responses quite early. I've also had some pretty unpleasant things happen to me as a young adult. The life I thought I'd have isn't even really an option anymore. I wasn't ever going to marry, have children, live in NYC, write, have a cat. Now I'm married, have children, husband can't stand the thought of NYC, have horrific writer's block and I have a son that is severely allergic to cats.

I guess if I wanted to I could be completely bitter and upset on how things have unfolded but I decided there really is no point in that so I made new goals and seek out new desires. I went to school for massage therapy and love it. I express myself through cooking instead of writing. I have a dog as snobby as a cat sometimes. I love my children more than I ever thought I could. My husband, too....

So even when life pisses me off or makes me cry, for me, it's all part of the big picture along with the good times.

My life is mostly crappy. I am suffering from severe loneliness and depression. Since elementary school I was suffering from severe depression, social anxiety and extreme loneliness. I also never have gotten any positive attention from a woman that I found attractive which also triggered my depression and feelings of loneliness.

Often times I wish I was just never born at all because my life is of little significance. I also joined another forum because there the people can at least understand how I feel.

My life is awful. Extreme loneliness. No success. A lot of psychological barriers to deal with. Weak support system.

The 6 choices for the poll are all different flavours of what you might get if you exert no control over your life... Not everybody lives in a fashion where they just get what they get and then sum it all up on a 1 to 6 scale.

Well, I had better begin with saying I am not suicidal at the moment but have been in the past.
Now, with that out of the way, I can't think of many times in my life when I have felt useful to others. I surely have been picked on, shouted down to, made an example of who not to look like and be in life.
I just heard about Mindy McCready committing suicide and I can under why she would do it. Like her, bad things come at me even when I am making the best of a situation. Right now on my life I can't think of one person who has needed my company. As a matter of fact, everyone in my life has been dishonest and only come to me when the want something. My life is tragic. I am not seeking out attention here, it's just the darned truth.
