Have you even been so tired of living? You thought life was very hard?

First off, I am a positive person and I make the best of the day most of the time! Whatever happens, I have tried to look on the bright side. hehe However, once in a whole, if I had met a series of bad lucks some day, I couldn't help thinking whether the life was tired? Why I even live in the world? What I live for..... but I have no exact answer ......I only know I' m living now not only for myself. So, I have to live, for something, someone or everything, everyone. Or Maybe there aren't many many things that I can do in life. Still, I can enjoy this beautiful day. We get so few of them. So, have you even been so tired of living? You thought life was very hard? What did you do or think at the time?

Hey hiddenwing~ I know that many times in my life I have felt the same way that you are feeling. But, no matter how badly that I felt I always thought that there had to be something that was worth living for even if it just was something that I couldn't really put my finger on at the moment. Like for instance my cats! I would always thing that they needed me and I needed to be there for them because if I wasn't here for them who would be? And there was always the next beautiful day or my friends or something to look forward to! There is always something worth living for! No matter how hard life is and how bad things seem to be they can always get better. I have learned that as I have grown older! I will never get tired of living! I want to live as long as I can no matter what! Everyday is precious and is a gift~

Yes, I've had a couple of low points in my life. The first was when I was a teenager. I got so lonesome that I would cry myself to sleep at night. What did I do? I hung in there, got my high school diploma and left the farm. The next time was when I was in my late 40s. Both children were grown and gone. My husband and I separated over whether one of them could return. Things finally worked out, but it took several years. The only way I could keep my sanity during that period was to keep telling myself that I'm not responsible for what other people do, even members of my immediate family. Incidentally, our son finally got his addiction under control, and my husband and I are still together.

i've been throught it many times already... i can understand what you're trying to say here. there were times in my life that i can say i just want to let go and give up. i've been through so much. problems come like there's no end to it. i havent yet solve the one i have at the moment another one comes... physically, mentally and spiritually i had felt like i am already drained of everything. just live one day at a time.. i think this is the best way to overcome it, live one day at a time... to heck with the future even though it makes me worry a lot of times.

I don't think it always! I guess I can persuade myself to be back on my feet for the happiness again! hehe There are lots of people who live worse than us. Still, it seems that they are so satisfied. Good luck seeing the big pumpkin on Hallowe

I have had many a day like that. I have really thought sometimes I really don't know why I was put on this earth, and I know that my family would be much better off if I was gone. However, usually I don't think like that. I usually am positive thinking like you. I even have friends that think I am one of the most positive people that they know. When things get tough, I have a tendency to pick up a good positive thinking book. I have one that is called The Amazing Laws of the Cosmic Mind. If you ever get a chance to read this book, definitely do. And if you can put a copy of it on your book shelf and go back to it from time to time, then you are lucky. I just finished it, not too long ago. And I plan to go back and read it again and again. I hope that you have something like this that you can do to keep you from becoming too far down and out. Cheer up, and have a good day!!!

hi hidden.. i often feel that way... i had a baby at a very early age (i got pregnnt at 16 and had a baby when i was 17) so practically, i started out early in life.. i was working and tusying at the same time... i had to work work work and dint really experience so much socializing as i have so much in my hands... i riasedmy son alone and I did well.. he is in his 2nd year in high school and i know i still have a long way to go... my mom and sister often needs a lot of financial help from me and that keeps my hands full all the time. I have no choice, no matter how tired iam, i have to get up everyday and do what needs to be done. I think of that often really.. but life is life... easy for us to say it depends on how we deal with it... but you can't deny feeling tired often times.

I feel that somedays I shouldn't even wake up to face the harsh reality of my life. I think that things will never get better, but who cares. I just keep on going and try to roll with the punches. What else is there to do? some times I try a new activity or try to experience something that I have never tried before. Change is good. Think about the things you always wanted out of life and try to gain them. You never know unless you try. And if you fail. Oh well, what did you have better to do with your life? Sit around an mope all your life? Get out there and make something of you life. And make sure you have all the fun you can.

Count your blessings, count your blessings, too often we count our failures. AS a single mum with a horrible soon to be ex husband my life has sucked, he cheated, he beat me up, he gave me diseases, i was bankrupt etc etc, the list can go on, however, I am not in a typhoon, a war ravenged country, without means to escape. We can always survive the moment, stand on our foot of ground and work for a better tomorrow, we are never at the end, there is always more to give and experience. The negatives prey more on the mind. There are amazing people, amazing lifes that humble me and uplift me. Count your blessings. You will have some!

Yes. I have felt like this so many times in my life. Things always seem to get better and then they go back to the same old thing. I still get tired of living alot of times because of all of the ups and downs we have to go through. We have to keep pushing forward though and try not to give up.

Sometimes we're tired of living but still we like to go on living. Though we feel tired but there are instances that we feel relax as well, when we think of other blessings such as a beautiful famil. When we think of the joys grandparents experienced from their grandchildren, when we feel the love of our childreN. It's tiring especially if we can't achieve things we want to due to financial problems but then we still hope to recover, by having our faith we can get over this life's boredom.

I never get tired of living because I always keep up a good work and never though life is very hard for me because I have my parents always in my side to support me. Sometimes I have encountered consequences or troubles in my life but I never give it up, I still continue my journey and always happy.

It's true that sometimes the negative thoughts of life will be appeared. Sometimes I am so tired of living. And I want to get away. In order to keep the life going on well, I have to adjust myself and hife the fruagile side of myself. To be calm on work and life.

I am going through this very experience right now. I have realized that when I was young I lived a very sheltered life. That now, I feel that life is hard and I sometimes I get tired of it. I've learned to take each day as it comes, to live in the moment. I know this is not right, but it's the only thing that get me through the day. I am terrified of the future.

Hi Hiddenwing, life has many ups and downs. I take comfort in the fact that when I'm have a patch of bad luck or hard times. It will get better good days, bad days. It's all just life no one promised life would be easy nor should it always be hard. I've heard life being compaired to a roller coaster ride. This is true for me just hold on and enjoy the ride.

In our life, there is sorrow as well as happiness, success as well as failure, tears as well as smiles. Although one is always keeping optimistic, people may meet some frustrating even despairing situation. Sometimes, when people are in trouble, he may tend to be negative to the life and tired of everything, which is common among all people. However, people may get more positive when they are lucky. From where I stand, people should pay more attention to the essence of life. When they are in trouble next time, they should think of the amazing story before. Keep optimistic is always useful and meaningful.

Certainly, life has its ups and downs but I don't think I have reached the point that I am tired of living. A day may be a tiring one and I feel terribly exhausted but is hardly the same as tired of living. enjoy life!
