Unholy Thoughts Brooding Up ....

Having faced quite a lot of trials and tribulations for a quite a long time, it is but natural that one would get frustrated at life's uncertainties. It is all grim realities. Improper dwelling place, lack of sufficient income, mounting expenditure, loss of respect and esteem in familial circles......all these and many add to one's frustrations in daily living. What if the thought of ending this existence crops in one's mind...

Ya think??!! Ending this existence? Oh, it has cropped up in my mind several times in my life. But, I would NEVER do such a thing. I wouldn't do it to my family. I think it will be hard enough for them when i pass away. But to do this? No!! I have uncertainties, frustrations, grim realities, family issues, trials and tribulations and life uncertainties. I have severe depression with panic attacks. My daughter is bi-polar and my grandson has a mood disorder. I wouldn't call any of this 'unholy'.

Oh! I wonder how you are coping up with those kinds of maladies. Your courage and boldness to face the grim realities of life deserve rich encomiums. Occasional spells of disgust and dejection which troubles me seem to vanish at your explaining life's situations. Take care. God bless you.

Why disgust and dejection? Life does tend to go on.

I'm sorry to hear that you are going to such a difficult time. I'm also having similar problems right now and I know how hard it is to deal with one challenge let alone more than one at once. I have had thoughts of ending my life but honestly I wouldn't have the guts to do it. I don't know if you have the courage or not. But I'll pray for you as someone else said they would do and if you're a praying person, you could also pray for me if you're willing. I believe that we all need to help each other since we are interdependent beings and that God created us to rely on God and on each other. I believe in God and that we all have a purpose in life even though I have struggled to find who God wants me to be. I agree with others who have said that life if full of bad and good, ups and downs, and that eventually things will get better. I also agree with the person who said that you should look for professional help if you can because I have in the past and am considering it again since it has benefitted me. It's also good to have a support system of loved ones whether family, friends, romantic, church, work, school, online such as chat rooms or discussion groups like this. I wish you all the best and hope this helps even a little. God bless you.

Oh! yes ending one's life ...the option is for the braver lot...not the kind of cowards like us. So it is life...we cannot but live it out ...in peace or in agony.

It does take courage but it's not the best option anyway. I believe it is true that it's selfish just like another person said cause it would be painful to those we leave behind. Maybe we can help each other & be a support to each other when we have those feelings. God bless you.

I can only say that nothing lasts forever. Therefore, the trials and tribulations too will pass. Personally, I really love the words of an old Hindi song..the couplets are as follows Raat jitni bhi sangeen hogi Subaha utni hi rangeen hogi Raat bhar ka hai mehmaan andhera Kiske roke ruka hai savera Meaning how dark the night is - that bright the day will be. Darkness is the guest only for the night. Nobody can stop the daybreak because it is inevitable. Personally, I've seen this happen in my life n number of times. I am convinced this is true. There is one thing I learnt from my trials and tribulations - which I feel I must share with you. You do need to consult some people. I know in our society it is looked down upon. But solutions are out there. Somebody has them. We just dont know who. Unless we approach the right person, we will not know how to solve our problems. For that, we do need to open up a bit. We can be wrong a few times, but we might be right as well. So why not take the chances, after all, what have you to lose?

Problems,worries and mishaps ...perhaps everything would vanish in course of time. But at this ripe age of 62 I cannot but be anxious about the rest of days allotted to me by God.

They will disappear. That is for sure. It took about seven or so for mine to disappear. Then suddenly on January 2nd of this year, calm descended. Last year was one of the worst. I survived that. I am surprised I survived.

im experiencing my own trials and tribulations as well. It was God's word that gave me comfort and strength to stand and keep on fighting.

Fighting till a perilous end, you mean. Maybe it is destiny...it can never be altered...So all this suffering is beyond redemption,I guess.

I think that everyone at one time or another has had the thought of ending it pop in their mind. It is the constant consideration of that choice that can be dangerous. It has been a defense mechanism for me to seek out the brighter side and have hope for the future.
