• Why have I been suicidal for so long?

    When I was around 4 years old, I used to say "I wish I was never born," up until I was around 8 years old when I discovered what being suicidal meant.

    When I was around 4 years old, I used to say "I wish I was never born," up until I was around 8 years old when I discovered what being suicidal meant. Since I was 8, I always thought about dying and committing suicide and I still do up to my current age, 15. I don't know why I've never wanted to live or enjoyed living at all since a young age. I don't know what it means, but I want answers because I've been suffering for so long and I just want it all to end. I hate living this way. I know this all sounds really far fetched, but it has just always been a thing that has been stuck with me for a long time and I just need to know why I'm like this. It hurts so much to keep living with the way I am.

  • Why do celebrities lie and say they have anxiety, yet they perform in front of tons of people?

    Actors and actresses perform in front of dozens of people on set. Musicians too, but musicians also play in front of thousands of people in stadiums. People who actually have anxiety shake their heads at celebrities faking having anxiety.

  • Would you ever be friends with a narcissist?

    Best answer: No. They'd have little interest in me and would be all about themselves. Narcissists need so much approval and support that it's draining. I used to work with a guy who was a true narcissist and I'd never be his friend.

  • Why are some people so "nice"?

    Is it the way that they were raised? Is it that their brains are wired differently? Is it their mentality? As you can see, I put the word nice in quotation marks. I did that because deep down inside, I do not think that there are any genuinely good/nice people in the world. I think that some just presents... show more
    Is it the way that they were raised? Is it that their brains are wired differently? Is it their mentality? As you can see, I put the word nice in quotation marks. I did that because deep down inside, I do not think that there are any genuinely good/nice people in the world. I think that some just presents themselves as good/nice to gain things. I grew up sheltered and I thought that people were good. However, now I that I am 18, I realized that people (ESPECIALLY family) are fake as **** and cannot be trusted. I think that giving someone the benefit of the doubt is just down-right stupid. I do not think that anyone is "unlikely" to do something horrible or bad, if they can get away with it and if it benefits them... I just don't. I am not at all empathetic, sympathetic, or caring for others. I just don't think that anyone is deserving of it. I mean, if the shoes were on the other foot, I bet I could count on one hand who would be empathetic, sympathetic, or caring for me.

  • Serious question: Is it okay to go your whole life without someone and dying a virgin?

    Best answer: I think this is the kind of thoughts you have when you're young. It seems like you'll never meet anyone and you'll die old and alone. There's several problems with this kind of thinking, and you realize it when you're older. First, this is called "catastrophizing." That means that... show more
    Best answer: I think this is the kind of thoughts you have when you're young. It seems like you'll never meet anyone and you'll die old and alone. There's several problems with this kind of thinking, and you realize it when you're older.

    First, this is called "catastrophizing." That means that when you're young you think everything is a catastrophe!!! OMG! If I don't have someone right now, I'm going to die alone! In other words, you're making a big catastrophe about it.

    The truth is that you will probably find someone. In fact, there will probably be quite a few people in your life. You probably won't die a virgin, unless you want that. Things may seem desperate now, but they won't be later.

    Second, the truth is that even if you find someone, that magic perfect someone, you still have about a 50% chance of dying without them. In every couple, someone goes first. So the other person is left by themselves. But, the good point is, that still doesn't mean that the second person dies alone. They won't have their one true love, sure, but they might be surrounded by children or grandchildren.

    Third, life isn't about the last moment of your life. It's about everything that happens in between. It's not "dying alone" -- after all, you might fall down at your home and die alone, but it's not that, it's whether there was someone there the rest of the time.

    Anyway, some people want to be alone, and for them it's desirable. Others want to be with people. Chances are, if you want to be with people, you'll find someone to be with.

    So, yeah, I vote with the "it's okay to die alone" crowd. I just don't think that means you'll spend all your years alone.

    So ive battles with social anxiety for years, ever since high school. Im 23. Ive skipped out on interviews, parties, girls, dates, events, opportunities. I just sit and watch my life unfold the exact opposite of the way i wanted it to go. And for the last 6 months, ive exercised 5 days a week, only have about 3 drinks per week on saturdays (opposed to every night). And so far ive been getting results. I finally worked up 4 years of courage to speak with my doctor about social anxiety , and everytime i made my appt they ask what for, and i would always hang up. So i walk into my clinic, shake my doctors hand and spill my guts about how everything i have tried has seemingly failed and that i am looking for alternatives, specifically medication. He lirerally paused and said he gets many patients like me and that i need to keep working at it. Then he takes my blood pressure and does a physically.. says "you seem like a fine healthy young man" shakes my hand and shoos me out of the room... Doesnt offer a therapy or anything.. what the f? . Any social anxiety cures thatworked for you?

  • Why does being the victim of rape make me feel like I’m a bad person on the inside?

    I’ve even started acting out. Being angry towards men, being a nasty evil drunk. It’s an awful feeling deep inside like I’m a bad person who doesn’t deserve a nice life and my life will never get better. I find myself doing acts of charity and kindness to prove to myself that I’m a nice person even though I... show more
    I’ve even started acting out. Being angry towards men, being a nasty evil drunk. It’s an awful feeling deep inside like I’m a bad person who doesn’t deserve a nice life and my life will never get better. I find myself doing acts of charity and kindness to prove to myself that I’m a nice person even though I know deep down I’m more sensitive and empathetic than most people. What causes this feeling of being inherently bad since the rape? Why do I feel like a bad person?

  • I need some help in my marriage. Yes I will take your advice if you make an effort to answer. Help?

    All history between me and my wife pushed aside, my marriage is "good". We make 6 figures in a state where most families make $56k tops. We are alive. We don't argue.

    All history between me and my wife pushed aside, my marriage is "good". We make 6 figures in a state where most families make $56k tops. We are alive. We don't argue. We make it to work on time and we don't get fired. We own lots of things. To most in our state, this would be considered success. The issue is the relationship. My wife is happy because she's an extreme introvert and just likes me in the same room as her and that's as much company and emotional connection she wants. No sex, no fun, just my presence to make her feel safe. That's it. To her, this is love. She doesn't show love, she just sits in the room feeling safe and I have to somehow be sexually, emotionally, and mentally satisfied with that... She takes Zoloft for her anxiety now, but she still overthinks everything now (not high enough of a dose?) People have told me that I need to take charge and just create a new environgment, which I have, but I can't maintain it alone. She likes her lifestyle so much she rigidly refuses to change. We will try new things once and a while, but she goes right back to her comfort zone as soon as I turn a blind eye. She is stuck!! She refuses to go to therapy because she doesn't want to be told ahe has do change. I've been to therapy recently and they are trying to help me take charge of my life but she just resists the change and In sucked back into her world. Help!!!!
