If anybody here is willing to read this, here it is. Life has offered me false hope which has been shattered to pieces over and over again. I feel like taking my life someday is extremely likely, maybe inevitable at this point. All my adult years I've been lying to myself, telling myself that I have a chance in this world at a decent life, love and that things can be ok but I realize life is cruel, this world is hostile and I'm not strong enough to hang in there.

I'll be really amazed if I'm still alive by age 32, more so by age 40+. Everyone tells me, I'm 26 right now, this is the best time of your life kiddo. Life gets very hard when you get older and nobody is going to take care of you but yourself. Nobody will be there for you because they'll all have families or be too old. I have so many issues I can't even begin to cough them off here. All I know is if life is hard now I don't want to imagine another ten years. I want out. I'm severely injured inside and I don't even know how to act 'normal.' I try but people always label me as weird. I feel like my own family can't stand me anymore. the only reason I plan to stay alive for right now is for my brother who'd be devastated.

I'm beaten down and I don't think I can' take anymore of life's woes. With each decade that passes is another round at the buffet of suffering, hardship and misery. Thank you if you've read this

Hi George
You need to take each day at a time. Try not to look to far into the future. Find something no matter how small to be glad for each day. I know its not easy i try myself each day. Write it down so you can look back over it. Try not too wish your life away it will come soon enough.
Try not to live your life by other people's standards. Who cares what they have achieved in their life, doesnt mean that they are more successful or more happy than you.
Quite often what you see on the outside (social media) is not a true representation of their real life. So dont be fooled by everything you see.
Talking helps, Here to listen George
Hugs
Fox

You are here trying to make things better for yourself, I think that's a great start at the very least. Please don't lose hope.

Feeling better today. Made a call to schedule an appointment with a therapist because any 'feeling better' will be temporary until I really get to the root of my problems. Only problem is I haven't heard back. Kind of wish these people would take sufferers like us more seriously

it really isn't too late for you
i honestly promise that

im 39 in feb if you are just 26 and people tell me there is still hope then there must be hope still for you?

im not positive about this but i believe i have heard in the past therapy can be more successful the younger you are

i remember when i was 26 and if i had received the correct and right support then i might not be as bad as i am now ,i feel

really truly there is still hope you are still so young ,i know someone who barely had a life at the age of 24 then at 28 he turned his life around with help and now has a wonderful fulfilling life

it is so important you get the right help ,the younger the better i personally believe

lots of love to you

sorry if i rambled
