Why People Are Sad

You should click through to this great post I found on Reddit. The paragraph below describes a lot of people’s problems and the rest of the article critiques the most common (and incorrect) solution.

It’s a bit depression, but at least it is honest. Glad that it’s not me.

Modern day Americans are often trapped in lousy, disappointing, soul crushing careers. If they are not divorced already, their marriages are on the rocks. They live far outside of their means, rack up thousands of dollars of debt, and then they work overtime to pay for the toys they never have time to play with. They dedicate their lives to pleasing ungrateful children who won’t amount to much more than they did. Hours of their downtime is spent in front of the television, switching from reality show to reality show, because it is easier to watch other people live life than it is to live their own. In a rare moment of creativity, they might write a secret out on a postcard and send it to a website because they don’t have a single person in real life that they trust enough to share their fears with. They feel all of this on top of the usual human maladies of sickness, death and grief.

  1. This Is Way people do suicide because life sucks in every-way-shape and form, IT’S NOT THERE FAULT SOMETIMES OR NOT AT ALL THERE FAULT,FOR LIFE CAN BE CREUL,— IT’S THE FAULT OF UNFORGIVING TIMES OF LIFE ISSES OF WHATEVER HADS HAPPENED TO BE OF IT, BUT WE AS HUMANS DON’T ALWAYS MAKE IT THIS WAY, IT A CATCH 22 EFECT.

    I LIFE IS,–IS WANTS AND DESRIES, WITHOUT THAT WE ARE MEANINGLESS SURRVIRLE MACHINES THAT WON’T AMOUNT TO ANYTHING BUT STUPIDLIY FOR NOTHING BUT LINING SOMEONE ELSES POCKEYS WITH MONEY.
    LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS WHAT YOU MAKE IT, HOWERE SOME POEPLE WILL DEAGREE WITH ME ON THIS, AND THATS OK TO, BUT EVERBODY IS ALOND TO CHECKOUT WHEN THEY HAD TO MUCH PAIN, BECAUSE LIFE REALLY SUCKS NO MATTER HOW YOU CUT THE PIE, OR THINK ABOUT IT RATIONALY, OR REASON ON HOW TO MAKE IT BETTER, IT ALL COMES OUT THE SAME, NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO WITH YOUR LIFE, OR HOW YOU DO AT ALL COSTS OF YOUR LIFE, OR SHOULD FEEL LIKE IT’S BETTER OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BUT SOME DAY YOU WILL GET TIRED OF IT, JUST LIKE EVERY HUMAN ON THE PLANET. LIFE MY BE FUN FOR A WHILE BUT HOWEVER IT WILL CHANGE LIKE EVERTHING ELSE DOES.
    IT VERY HARD TO TRUST POEPLE THESE DAYS BECASE THEY WILL STUB YOU RIGHT IN THE BAD FOR YOUR MONEY, FREEDOM, HEALTH, BRAINS, LOVEING-KINDNESS, ETC.
    I ONLY SHARE MY FEAR WITH RATIONAL THINKING POEPLE WHO UNDERSTAND ME WERE I COME FROM ANYBODY THAT WHATS TO PATERNAIES— ME IS NOT WELCOME,— ALL WHO ARE RATIONAL ARE WELCOME ALWAYS FOR THIS TOPIC.
    WE ONLY HAVE SOME MANY YEARS TO BE HAPPY AND IT’S NOT MUCH AT ALL.
    THE BEST SOLUTION, IS DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY, SO LONG IF YOU DON’T HURT ANYBODY ELSE IN THE PROCESS OF DOING WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY, BECAUSE MY WAY OF HAPPINESS MY NOT BE YOUR WAY OF HAPPINESS BUT AT THA SOMETIME RESPECT IT, AN WE CAN ALL BE HAPPY SOME TIMES IN OURS LIFES.
    DO WHAT IT TAKES WITHOUT HURTING ANYBODY IN LIFES STRUGGLES, FOR YOU WANTS AND DESIRES.

    William Brukner: I am not going to lecture you on how you have a negative attitude, and you can be happy, very very happy, if you work on it. Because you are 100% correct…and of course I hate to admit it, but who wouldn’t hate to admit that this is a very horrible world! The *only* hope is to face truth, as ugly as it is…otherwise, we’re just babbling idiots whose happiness is based on ignorance and sugar rushes.

    It takes real courage to rip through this veil of illusion, and I commend you for that. The *only* criticism I have of you, is please, please, please, type in lower case. The way you do it, all uppercase, is like yelling…and your truthful words will reach few people as a result.

    You are a good soul in a rotten world. I wish for you, something really nice.

  3. I’m Glad You Say I’m 100% Correct, I Know You Hate To Admit The Truth, But The Truth To You Is Negative.
    It’s Far Better To Live With The Truth Than A Lie, It Takes Real Courage To Know The Truth Anyways, I Have Giving Up On Ever Finding A Lover In My Life It’s A Illusion, The Only Way I Can Be Happy Is To Live The Life I Want, Not What SomeOne Wants For Me, You Are The Only One That Can Make You Happy.

    The Reason For Upper Case Is Because I Don’t Like This A lot Of People In This World, It’s Not Because I’m Negative, But However It’s Because I Know The Truth About Me, And Others Like Me Who Have Suffered.

    Some People Can Be Positive All The Want And Get Negative Results A lot In There Life, It’s Really Not There Fault At All, It’s A Catch 22 In Life, Life Is Not Fair At All Cost, Like You Said It’s Rotten World Out There.

    This Time Is Not All Upper Case, How’s That For Starters…

    Thanks, For Reading…

    No argument here, William. Thanks for an intelligent and thoughtful response. All my dreams and aspirations have finally vanished, too…including never having a lover…bad enough, but I also have not had any real friends in over 22 years. Society has shattered into many lonely pieces. I take the Buddhist spin: only when all illusions are swept away, and your soul is totally empty and w/o hope, can you begin to find inner peace.

    There’s nothing else left to do!

    • Your very welcome 4 all the comments herein, That is Perfectly correct, There’s nothing else left to do, or accomplish in this life But more problems ! But however Living by chasing a dream that will never come true by endless chasing the cheese, &/or getting out of the picture 4 good & you know what that means, inner peace does not exist, Nor does Love because it’s all illusion of distractions to keep you from the truth, The truth is Life is STUPID, all it is, Is Crude Forces of DNA @ work that are trying to get into the future, But however–> only comfort Exist until we die by our hand of Suicide is the only way out of this Horrid existence,”TheRightToAPainlessSuicide” Just ask Gary Inmendham on YouTube, or just watch his video’s, “OK” Goodbye Forever because there is nothing to accomplish by staying in a suffering ways of life, We all have to say GoodBye sometimes, because we are all ADDICTED by our DNA (M) Well when we really have had enough of LIFE & the Imposers telling us how to live ETC of a ENSLAVED LIFE, Because we all are of The Imposed upon from the Imposers, Really Just take a look @ Gary video’s & you’ll see what I’m talking about & why I chose this solution to end all my
      problems this way, It’s the only way out that I know of 4 me, everything else is a distraction to keep you CHASING THE CHEESE, we are all desire machines going nowhere.

  5. Your Right No Argument Here, & There’s Nothing Else Left To Do, But However Find Inner Peace, With In Do Time.
    EveryBody Needs To Do What It Takes To Be Happy, WhatEver It May Be, Good Luck In Finding Yours…

    And I Will Do That, Find Mind To,– Thanks, Zeke Krahlin 4 The Intelligent And Thoughtful Response To.

    Thanks,
    William…

    • Really I Hope You Have Good Luck Extremely in finding yours too, Whatever that maybe, Because I really don’t think it EXISTS @ ALL, Butt you can try until your Blue in The Face–> ~hence~ “Life is a Collections of Illusions of real deal Lies & Distractions to keep us going on a endless chasing 4 nothing but Hardship of more problems later on down the road” Your gonna really need it, Extreme Luck, because we were all put here without our Own Consent to be here in the first place —>by The Imposers of this Life who brought us here thinking we were gonna enjoy it, “Well Guess what they thought Wrong”, Yes I’m saying Life Really Sucks Extremely & Way Badly, because mostly it’s almost all Suffering & Hardships of Total Problems from day 1. It’s Evil to Live here because there’re so many Countless & Never Endless Problems. “OK NOW” GoodByeNowForever(:-)). This is The Last post 4 this topic herein.
