My Mood: I'm caught in a trap

Unhappy I'm caught in a trap

Try to make ends meet, try to find some money, then you die -- "Bitter Sweet Symphony", The Verve

I feel like life is one long torture. No way out. A long broken road leading to death and oblivion. I'm on my knees, my friends. I just can't take this. Weirdly enough, I'm not suicidal, I'm just worried I might not have what it takes to survive in this world. I don't want to survive, though, I'd like to live! Why is it that so many of the people I see go about their lives and make their dreams come true while I struggle and struggle? I go through some pretty horrible phases, I call them "cosmic nihilism attacks". They drive me crazy. I'd like to write some more, but I'd be overstating my point.

Hi, Fallaximago,

I can relate to what you are taking about. I have felt the same and on occasion, still do. Do you see a therapist? Would you consider doing that, if you aren't?

I am asking because a therapist can help you see what you can do differently to better your life. Also, you can look up subjects you have questions about. I did both and still do for the most part. I read up on self-help books on topics I didn't understand. I had to learn new habits because what I was doing had me stuck, working hard at spinning my wheels and getting myself nowhere.

There are oodles of great articles here on this website: Resource Directory | Psych Central

I am glad you are reaching out and asking questions!! That's a good place to start.

Hey, thank you so much! I see a therapist but it doesn't seem to be working too much. She sees progress that I fail to recognize, I just don't believe I've made it. That said, I'll be reading those articles. I've just received a self-help book called "Getting Back to Happy". I've already found a few strategies I could put into practice. Thank you so much for your kind response! When I wrote the first post, I felt very vulnerable and weak, it's a bit better now

I'm glad to hear you're trying to work on things, too. And I'm glad you're feeling better and reading to seek answers.
