Thread Topic: honestly, life is a game
some people lose, some win. and somehow im losing right now. i feel like i have imposter syndrome. i dont have a place in society, so why am i still playing this game? and im not some angsty teenager, the real world is pretty...distorted.
i wonder if anyone feels like this. know why? because i wouldnt know. does anyone else basically spend their days doing what society forces you to do, then, when their hold on you is gone for a short while, drop into a blackhole (if the hold was particularly strong)?
Oh yeah. I lived my life in a dark hole I couldn't get out of. Almost killed myself. If there is no purpose to life there's no reason to live.
But today is different. I took inventory of my beliefs and decided to get help no matter the cost, to face truth even when it hurt. I'm not depressed or suicidal anymore. I know what life is about.
thats an interesting way to view things.
zeronightshade SeniorThere's really nothing to life, we're thrown onto this plane suddenly, prompted to gain purpose. We've all pretty been forced to adapt. We live on rules that really are trivial in every meaning of the word. Society has given us roles. Religion has too. But many people have not found a purpose, me included, so I toil. It's disheartening.
I'm going to tell you what is on my heart. I come on here because I literally care about anyone who is depressed and suicidal. I know what that is like. I would do anything to put myself between you and death. Whether you recognize it or not, you are cared about.
But I can't force you to seek truth. I can't force you to care enough about your own soul to entertain the possibility that there is an answer and a purpose, and that your actions are leading you to this hell.
Forget all the stupid reasons you have against it and at least consider what the Bible says. Do you realize something? I didn't set out to be religious or join some cult and put a band aid over my pain. If I kept doing the same stupid, self destructive things I would have died. If I fooled myself into believing there is no truth I would have continued doing the same things and wondering why things never got better. What you build your life on will determine if it crashes to the ground or stands on a firm foundation.
The reason I speak so strongly about Jesus Christ and the Bible is because He's real and it works. You have to decide if you'll go directly to God and take Him at His Word. I'm not talking about religion, rituals, or human opinions. Just find out for yourself that He's real.
You are loved, but you have free will. You are responsible over your choices and whether or not you'll change what is ruining your life. Someone can stay up all night talking to you and praying for you, but ultimately you have to decide to live or die. I urge you to choose life.
There are Christians in concentration camps in North Korea who spiritually are alive and know what they're willing to live and die for, willing to face physical torture for. Meanwhile there are well-fed, rich Americans physically alive but spiritually dying, willing to throw away their lives without figuring out why they were born in the first place. A gift has been given, but we choose whether or not we'll receive it.
thats truly intresting, and i have to add that i also lean a tad in the neutral part of the religious spectrum. not to say i dont believe in a great amount of what you just told me. its spiritually enlightening concepts. thanks for your help.
Of course, Lulu. I truly care about you, and I hate seeing that you're suicidal. I know what it's like looking for a real reason to go on living. I also understand, I was agnostic before becoming a Christian. Ask questions and seek truth. Don't give up.
