    I thought of something today. Maybe my attitudes on how life should be are just unrealistic. Maybe I should just accept the world and myself for the way it is and I'll be happier.

    Foolish is the mind that thinks "I should not suffer." You just have to aknowledge that it's part of life and not fight against it so much. Learn from it instead and grow stronger.

    it depends.

    if accepting how life is means that you are accepting that you are depressed to the point of being suicidal, then no, i don't think you should quit fighting.

    if, on the other hand, you mean accepting yourself, with all of your strengths and weaknesses, accepting yourself as a human being making the best choices you know how to make at the time, then i'm all for that.

    That makes a lot of sense. But my natural instinct is to get as much pleasure as I can out of life. I avoid pain. But pain never avoids me.

    Everybody has some pain and suffering in the life. But sometimes, it lasts all life, and its unbearable...

    We only find ourselves through suffering.
