I Think About Dying But I Don’t Want To Die


I Think About Dying But I Don’t Want To Die

“I think about dying, but I don’t want to
die. Not even close. In fact my
problem is the complete opposite. I
want to live, I want to escape. I feel
trapped and bored and
claustrophobic. There’s so much to see
and so much to do but I somehow still
find myself doing nothing at all. I’m
still here, in this metaphorical bubble
of existence and I can’t quite figure out
what the hell I’m doing or how to get
out of it.”

    It’s a matter of mustering the strength to plan vacation. Research where you wanna go, budget and take time off. It often starts by cleaning your apartment. In my world anyway. Hugs to all.

    So sad this. How DO people get out of this state? I know someone I would like to help who this describes perfectly.

    je moet jezelf dwingen om meer onder echt integere mensen te komen, daarvoor moet je niet naar geld of goed kijken. maar naar echte wijsheid en integriteit.

    There’s a bit of substance in this post. It comes uncomfortably close to a self portrait

    I was like this, but thanks to the good Lord and friends I found my way out of the darkness.

      As long as you live sir you have more things to do in your family or in your friends or neighbors. Do not say you are ready to die.

      I want to see what is next. We all die sooner or later.
