Do you sometimes wish you were never born?

Maybe sometimes problems are just too much to handle, or maybe you feel like you're causing people too much pain... I've been finding myself feeling that way. That maybe if I wasn't born, I wouldnt cause people so much pain.. that maybe.. things would have been easier for my parents if it wasnt for me..

Naww. I don't think I have ever felt that way. And I hope you don't often feel that way either. I'm sure you don't cause anyone enough pain to facilitate your non-existence. I mean, unless you killed someone, in that case yes. Stop existing. Lol. Kidding. But if you do feel like your being a pain, try and be nicer. Go out of your way to help people. Make yourself invaluable that people just couldn't do without. =D

The pain ii cause is never directly. I do it because of trying to find the truth, or maybe being different than everyone else. I cause pain because of past mistakes I have made. I cause pain because ii dont follow cultural way...

Hanan you have to do what is right for you even if it disappoints other people. You have to be happy and be selfish every once in a while. You have to look out for yourself when you can becuase who is gonna look out for you when you get old? I wish you would give us some more information so that we would be able to help you out a little more. Well hope I have comforted you in some way. Have a great day today!! maria s.

I don't. Many things happens in our life. Some may be very difficult to accept, some we will not have any other option, sometime we will loose what we don't expect to loose. Some time we will run out of money and job. They will make 'a little' problem to us. I put trust in our creator, this life is just a test, all these happenings are part of it, having lot of money is a test, and having disease is a test. If we accept our guidance of our creator in all of the above instances, we will never lose our hope, we will never feel like loosing everything or ending life our own. We were not born to get money, buy nice things, or to achieve everything that our mind tells us. The promise of our creator, the hope that will lead our life, that is more important than the worldly things happening around us. Peace.

Hi Hanan. I believe it's normal to feel that way most of the time. You're not alone since I too tend to think that way whenever I feel like I've caused someone too much pain. The thing is you can't have the best of both worlds and you can't please everyone. Just remember that we are here for a reason and there is always a purpose for things to happen. We may not understand it for now but eventually we'll realize this as we grow up. Be thankful to have these problems since God will not give such challenges if we can't overcome it. Be strong my friend and have faith.

When we are discouraged or depressed or when pressures become overwhelming I think those kind of thoughts are understandable. However I prefer to hope that the problems would end rather than not having been born at all. After all, when problems are few and our health is good then life is very pleasant and enjoyable. May your problems become manageable!

yeah, there was a time when i did, for quite a long time in fact. but i had to get over it. because life is here, and it has to be something worth living or i won't have one like it.

When i am faced with huge difficulties i may have that idea , but it's just a flash in my mind.After that i goto face difficulties as usual. Life isn't to be blamed ,it might be our way of doing things is out of track.

I used to think exactly the same things but after a while you get over it and forget it. You learn to love life the way it is and just to live with it.

sometimes, when was a lot of problems, I hope to not be born in this world .. but it was not possible .... I have been born as a human being and I have to accept that so live how I should be able to face and solve problems
