you don't want to die, you want to live

this is a thought I had when I was younger

you know – that feeling you have when you look at what you have around you, and you are literally unsatisfied with everything

you overthink and you think that maybe life will be better if you are not around anymore

but overthink more, and you start to find the root of it

the reason of your unhappiness is because life isn't the way you want it to be

you are unhappy at how life currently is, not at life in general

if you change your life for the better, you will most likely feel better about it too

then it becomes clear

you don't want to die, you want to live

you don't want your life to be over. you just want the shitty parts to be gone

and that's what you should do

remove the parts you don't want, slowly

make more for new happenings to enter. and if you don't like them, remove the new ones too

until you are left with a life you somewhat like, eventually

and then go from there

    This.
    I was in a really bad head space this past Sunday. I wondered what it would be like to no longer exist. To end it all on that Sunday afternoon. But I reached out. I told someone to come sit with me, talk with me, until the feeling passed. It helped. I said “I don’t want to die. I just wanted to stop hurting. This hurts so much and I want it to stop.” Thank you for sharing these words. I needed them today.

    You’ll realize that sometimes wanting for the whole thing to end and to just disappear in the unknown is just a side effect of all the things that are hurting you right now.

    Earlier, I had my mom nagged me about having my meals in a really shitty sched and just nagging(ly) asked if ‘I wanna die?’.

    And, Ron, I almost said ‘yes’ bec I am still bothered and hurt of all the things I am overthinking at the moment. I’m glad I didn’t say it (1) I definitely don’t want to hurt her and (2) after sitting down on my thoughts, I realize I still want to see the better days ahead; I want to feel that heartfelt joy once more when this storm finally passed; no, I don’t want to die. I want to live. ❤️✨
