Feeling a bit shit today. I keep trying to see the light through the tunnel but it never comes. I feel like I'm autopiloting through life, I get no real pleasure from living. I'm struggling to see the point in anything anymore. Life is cruel and unfair. It's a battle to get through each day. I don't want to live like this anymore. I feel so lost, and empty, and just insignificant. What's the point.

I understand exactly what you mean missunderstood9.
I could easily echo your words.
Times like this are dreadful.

I can’t see a light at the end of the tunnel either, and at the moment,
if I did it would be the express train hurtling towards me.

However we can all keep supporting each other and share the
good and the bad times.

I hope you are feeling a little better now that you have shared how you are feeling. x

I may have mentioned this a couple of times on this forum already but it may be a good idea to try mindfulness meditation. Then you would savour each moment instead of thinking about the past or future.

Thank you skynet.
I will try this and try to stick with it.
I give up too easily with things and then get
frustrated with myself.

This then throws into negativity.
I am going to check it out now.

Thanks Pollypop, hopefully we will see the light at the end of the tunnel soon. Tired of scrambling through the darkness. :hug:

Glad to hear you are feeling a little better. I get those days where i feel awful and see no way out of it and then it eases up some. Lots of hugs

Hi misunderstood

I know these thoughts and feelings. I am going through a tough time just now.

I have horrendous days then it will ease.

I'm glad today is a bit better. The support on here is great. Knowing that you're not the only one makes me know I can carry on.
