I’m sorry for posting so much. I hate to sound like a poor me person but it’s just always so challenging, exhausting, even miserable a lot of time and unfair, life. I feel like a bad person because so many bad things happen to me and the ones I love.

I’ve given up long ago on finding love. I’m about to even give up my running and fitness goals. It’s just not going anywhere. For a brief moment or day it becomes a little easier to manage but not easy in any means and then it’s hard another 95% of the time. I take all the advice I get here seriously and it’s so hard to apply positive thinking to such intensely challenging and painful experiences.

I know what you mean, but listen if you give up then nothing will ever change or get better right? I know that it's very hard to keep your head up when you feel the way you do, but nothing worth having ever seems to come easily right? You can do it, but you gotta really want it & make up your mind that your going after it ya know?! Are you currently taking any meds or going to any therapy to help you?

I know how difficult it is to persevere when confronted with mental health problems. Try not to give up on everything, getting some physical exercise is helpful to your mental health. Mental health problems are a disease that is difficult to cope with, but when we give up and give in it is a downward spiral. I am hoping you can persevere. Take care.

Its also hard when literally 98% of the people i ever meet end up hating me. It doesn't matter if I try to be someone they want me to be or my real self, they just hate me for being me period. Strangers especially, are the biggest assholes. People in my family are alright but I get the death glare from everyone. How can I get a woman to even like me if they won't respect me enough to say hi back? People like that aren't worth my time anyway, but here's the sad thing, almost EVERYONE is like that!

Men look at me like I'm a threat and a terror to their family and they'd kill me if they could get the chance. If I look at somebody, they give me a cold glare but if I just mind my business, they end up talking about me or laughing about me because my differences are visible from space. I can't help that. You think I want to look this way? I have to medicate really heavily every night to suppress all the anger and hurt I experienced that day. And this is just the social part of my life...

It sounds quite difficult George. People are quite cruel, quite often, at least most of them, that is how the world is, unfortunately. There is some good in the world, but it is not so easy to find. I wonder where you live. I suspect you live in the U.S. People are generally cold and cruel there, it is somewhat better in some other countries. It is quite difficult, but you have to try to not let the cruel people in the world get inside your head. I have done the same as you in the past, and still tend to do so, but it only makes me more miserable, and has no impact on them whatsoever.

At least you have people in your family that treat you decent, that is a positive. Many of us have no one at all. Although there is much nastiness and evil in the world, there is some good, you have to seek it and don't let the nasty people of the world inside your head.
