    I must admit I am all the time, especially if they were around my age. It is because I want nothing more than to die, I can't stand living anymore, to me being dead would be the best thing but I can't bring myself to suicide for a few reasons, so I just wait and wonder when it is that I will die out of my own hands, but then i get impatient and think I should just bring death to me.

    I USED to be. Very much so. But my suicidal days are over thank goodness. I'm sorry you feel this way and hope somehow that you can overcome it. :hug:

    I've always felt this way and I like it, I am used to it.

    Sometimes I am jealous then other times I think about Claire & how much I would miss her but that is really conjecture as are we aware when we are dead? Also of course I suppose she would miss me

    Sometimes I am, for them everything is over and they can be happy and free. But then I would miss some people and be sad

    When I'm at a funeral, I kind of wish I could be the person in the coffin.
    To give him/her my life, because most of them sound like they would enjoy the time I have left more than I feel like I will.

    Not exactly jealous, but sometimes I would rather take their place.

    Sometimes I'm envious of the peace that they are in, but realize that in all probability I won't be aware of the peace that I will have when it's my turn. Or maybe it will all make sense if there is an afterlife. :encouragement:

    It's good to know that "life repair" is sometimes possible. I know that you worked pretty long & hard to get there.

    But one thing is that what we call "dead people" really aren't people anymore. At most, there are physical remains that used to be a person, at one time, but now are pretty much the same as any other nonliving matter. It doesn't look like something to envy.

    Which tells me that, although I haven't repaired my life or returned to good mental health, life is a state of animation that is really special in the universe. Most of the universe is inert gas, or rocks, or burning stars. Only tiny bits of it become "privileged" to enter the state of aliveness. Even if it has to end, it was still a great gift, even to have a minute of what human life is, with all its trouble.

    i do. i do get envious of people who are dead, because i know they are out of pain, and out of misssery- i always end up thinking.. well why isn't it me?

    it can be a horrible feeling, and sometimes i feel selfish for it. but it's how i feel

    I suppose the answer is yes, because I'm always hoping to die during my sleep. Unlike my envy of the living, at least with this, I'm quite certain that I'll eventually have my chance to be equal.

    Although it often feels as though I am immortal, and I often worry that when I reach old age, humankind will have discovered a way to prolong life far beyond what the maximum life expectancy currently is, and that suicidal people will be the only ones who are not permitted to refuse life-extending treatments and that anyone with a history of suicidal ideation/attempts will be forced to live until they're 200 years old.

    Yeah. I'm not suicidal anymore thanks to meds and therapy but still yes. I do envy.
