Trig Why does it matter?

Why does it matter if I die?
Seriously... What do I matter?
I am just another body taking up space, using up resources
Death - why should I fear it?
What has it done to me?
Life has taken everything away.
So why does it matter?

Another night where I feel my posting mojo is failing me ... it's a recurring thing with me.

But I also have trouble thinking of anything to say to someone who is so thoughtful, helpful, and has such deep feelings and insight into their own psyche.

I'd like to think all that has to count for something. That it has to matter somehow.


You know I wouldn't tell you how to feel. I just have to say something, because it's you -- and now is when you need it.

Just knowing you care is a lot - thank you ❤

It sounds like you are really having a hard time at the moment . I felt so bad last week I mean it was so bad I just really didn't want to be alive and I couldn't get any help from professionals despite trying everyone . I really thought i would feel like that forever , but it passed . it will pass for you too. Is there anything in your life you are not happy with and want to change ?

And by the way it does matter ! It would matter to me if you wasn't here and I'm sure it would matter to others on here too .

That's the problem - the things I want changed I keep changing but it doesn't matter...they turn out the same.

Thank you for saying it matters.

I have no big-picture answers here. All I know is you help me a lot when I'm down (and I mean really down). Is everything all better with me, hell no. But knowing you're there, knowing I can talk to you, knowing that you're not only listening but also searching for solutions; Crypts, it helps. I can't tell you the big-picture, I can only tell you what's in my personal frame, but you matter to me. It's selfish and I'm not the best person to have as a friend (I quit talking for days to months and I don't always know what to say), but I consider you a friend. I lost someone recently. I don't want to lose you, too.

I don't expect this to change your mind, nor am I under the illusion that this will take all your pain away, but you asked why it mattered. Well, this is why you matter to me. And I'm not the only one you've helped here.

I feel the same way.

A lot of us here are having moments of believing we don't belong in this world. But when I look at the other members of the forum, I can see that their issues don't mean they are any less human or deserving of a place. In fact, their difficulties might make them more human.

Do you know why you are feeling the way you do or did it just come from nowhere ?

Oh Crypts, for the short time we have known each other you have gained an important place in my attention. I look forward to speaking with you each day and saddened to see that you are hurting so deeply, the same hurt we have discussed and know there is nothing I can do to make that magically disappear but I would if I could. You know you are important to a lot of people and if we have to keep reminding you of it we will !
