    What specific things do you imagine might make life worth living for you. Even if they don't make you happy or universally 'solve' things.

    obviously, there are vague and general things, such as 'be happy' or 'not be depressed' but I'm interested to know what things you might actively focus on that is causing you suffering to the point of being suicidal.

    For me I don't think there's anything.

    Sure there are aspects of my life that I could change but I know at the end of the day it won't change who I am or how I feel. I would be making change for the sake of change.

    Girlfriend... but I don't think that's a fair burden to put on anyone. So I'll try not to.

    If I had purpose in my life I suppose. I can only look at my life and position in the world and think that I have no reason to exist.

    Everything comes and goes, so really I don't know.

    Ugh, I got a couple.

    Better eating habits. (i only eat once a day)
    No mental illness.

    Those are the main two. Getting out of the house would be nice, but whatever. The first two gotta go.

    thinking too much. trying to predict the future. Fear. all the negative things that an over-active mind can think of. Once it starts, it's very hard to arrest. Pretty SOP.

    having people around you. people that care about you and that you care about
    that's all you need. love, of any kind. maybe not even from people... pets can be a comfort at hard times and can get you through difficult things in life.
    lack of attachment is one of the biggest causes of depression.

    I'd love to have someone who really knew me well and gave a damn about me. The only problem is that no sane person would one to accept all the unhappiness/ instability that I'd bring to a relationship.

    But the thing is, it's not just external factors -- like the lack of people in my life, or my crappy job. Much of it is just unhappiness with myself. I don't know that this is something that will ever change.

    Girlfriend, some confidence in myself and motivation to improve things for myself.

    Actually, now what would help a lot is if I could overcome this condition that I've just found out I have. :sad:
  14. I would have to repeat what Aaron said and say that the one thing that would make this life tolerable at the moment would be money. big heaping piles of it.

    Love. Someone sitting across from me at the supper table, someone beside me at a movie or just watching T.V., someone to hold hands with on a walk, or to cuddle with under a blanket on a cold Minnesota night. They say the little things mean alot but those are only little to the people who take them for granted. To me they would be huge, if I could ever have them.
