Hi All, first post, firstly i want to make it clear to anyone who reads this that i am not attempting to offend anyone, so please leave any angry, snide or unhelpful replies aside. A bit about myself, im a 35yr old male unmarried no children unemployed, no financial commitments. In average health, the only complaints i could have are that i lost an eye at 17 and im about 50 lbs overweight. Ok my question is as follows, after trying and failing repeatedly to fit in to society i have elected to be mature and accelerate the natural process of death. The reason is simple, i do not belong, i do not think like others and i have tried everything i can think of to integrate to no avail. Every job i have worked in has left me empty and every relationship i have had has ripped my guts out. I am just not tough enough for this life. I have felt this way since i was 7 yrs old (thats as long as i can remember) So i think i have tried for long enough. There are a couple of people whom i wish to tell that i wont be sticking around any longer. I just want to minimise the impact on them. I know the obvious answer is just stick it out, it'll get better, try a different attitude, get help etc....but i've done all that..it doesn't work. So instead of just doing the act and leaving people in the dark, i want to tell them that i want to be gone. <Mod Edit:IrishDoll,Methods> So readers, how can i break the news?
