I'm sick of life.

Posted by anonymous at April 5, 2012
Tags: 2012 April  Poverty

I'm fucking sick of it. I'm so damn poor. I'm too young to help my parents. I plan on getting out of this shit after college, if I can even go.

It's fucking bullshit. People walk around with their $400 smartphones and $200 a month plans, iPads, MacBooks, and all that shit.

I'm left to think: why me?

Why am I the poor one? Why can't those fucking spoiled-ass others be the poor ones? I want nothing more in life than to be happy for one DAMN TIME. I'M SO FUCKING SICK OF LIFE. IT'S NO. FUCKING. FAIR.

Spring break is next week, and somebody is going to 2 different states. Yes, that's right. 2. DIFFERENT. FUCKING. STATES. What am I doing? Absolutely nothing.

Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit. I can't stand how oblivious they are to their own FUCKING life. They talk about how bad their life is, and how much they are bored at home, with everyfuckingthing they could possibly want in life, which is total shit. I want to punch through a fucking brick wall.

I'm not going to go suicidal or murderous. Fuck that shit. I'm smarter than that. I can control my extreme anger when needed. But I just had to fucking vent. Sorry, mods, if you don't like my post. But I can't fucking hold it in anymore.

Sorry for the swearing.

Please help me, inspire me, or something. I hate my life.

IRONIC POST IS IRONIC. What exactly were you thinking coming to a website where people write about being raped, beaten, and traumatized in order to "vent" about how horrible your life is because your family isn't rich? The cherry on top is the fact that you then go on to talk about how other people think their lives are so horrible. There was a girl who posted about how she's been raped multiple times by different people who I'm sure would kill to trade places with you so she could go to college and have a normal life minus electronic gadgets. I went through four years of college going nowhere for spring break. Thousands of other college students aren't going on vacation either and it's really not that devastating. If this is really a problem for you that is so bad that you need to come here to "vent" about it then you are definitely not ready to deal with the real world.
By anonymous at 05,Apr,12 22:20

This person doesn't need to be told that their life is so much better than someone else. If you don't like it you don't have to read it. Just because it's not so extreme doesn't mean they can't post anything. Sorry if I offended you, but we all have our breaking points no matter how small. Just try to help and be encouraging no matter if their problem doesn't involve something dying or being rapped.
By anonymous at 03,Jun,12 23:42

They can post it, just as everyone else is free to respond. Personally I think the original author has absolutely no perspective as he's equating materialism with the truly horrific scenarios described on the board.

college is for rich people. poor people don't get to go to school.

By at 06,Apr,12 10:24

One day you will get to where you want to.. or atleast you will get closer.. and bc of all the shit you;ve been through, you will appreciate it and cherish it 10x more than those people that have been fed with a silver spoon. Goodluck

By justme at 06,Apr,12 11:00

Smartphones are overrated. Silver spoons are too heavy anyway.

You are smart, use your brains. Go to college.

Channel your anger to learn, as opposed to envying.

I just turned 21, and i feel exactly like you bro, I feel like im in purgatory, i have a lot to look forward to (im smart, good looking, and have the building blocks for a better future) but at the moment I feel like complete shit. I'm hoping things will get better, as you are, hang in there.

By anonymous at 11,Apr,12 21:34

Don't give up. I feel mad too - but there are lots of people who are at the very top now who started with nothing and came from no opportunity! if they can do it so can you.

By anonymous at 12,Apr,12 15:47

I feel exactly the way u do.Why can't those fucking spoiled-ass others be the poor ones?Believe me..i`ve always wondered that.I truly hope things are gonna change for you..cuz i really understand you ..sorry for my english if i did any mistake

By anonymous at 14,Apr,12 18:18

You sound like a young person,so i can say that life will change for you.nothings stays the samr,everythig is in constant flux even individual lives.people who are poor become rich,people who rich can become poor.the trick is to stay non attached to material things and wealth,be happy and greatfull for what you do have.material things like iphones and cars have no real value,they should be used for their purpose not to become attached i stated earlier,things will change.hang in there.: )

By anonymous at 16,Apr,12 23:02

Someday, you will be successful too.

As of right now, study hard. Study your ass off.

Forget the states, work hard and you will be flying to Amsterdam, or Tokyo, Fiji maybe.
who knows,in 20 years today, you may be on your next flight to ski in the Swiss Alps, or the relax on the beaches in France.


By anonymous at 17,Apr,12 01:34

You have a right to what you're feeling. The feelings are valid. Don't let anyone try to tell you you should or should not feel the way you do. It isn't their job to tell you how to feel.

Having said that, I know that things can be made better in your life. Trust that and work towards it. Jot down ideas - even minor ones - about what would improve your situation or your parents' situation. Even if it is a very minor improvement that seems too small to mention - jot it down. Then figure out what types of things might get you closer to the things that create improvement. Keep doing that until you get somewhere.

Talk with people who are living an ethical life and not struggling terribly - find out how they do it. Strive to be like that. Take on the habits and behaviors of people you admire and soon you will be like them.

In the short term, ask yourself what you could do to make your life easier right now. Could you babysit or tutor a younger person? Could you carry groceries in for an elderly neighbor? Could you walk someone's dog now and then? Could you pull weeds in someone's garden? Could you delivery newspapers on the weekend? Anything? Is there anything even remote and small that you could do to bring in $10 now and then? That $10 is better than nothing. Build on it. Keep studying for school - and keep studying life and people. You can do this!

You can encounter Christ in a very powerful way, in the midst of feelings of isolation or loneliness.

The Psalmist cried out, "No man cares for my soul." [Psalm 142:4]. He was experiencing the loneliness of isolation from other people, and the feeling that those around him were pursuing their own interests rather than showing genuine concern for his soul.

People are often pursuing their own interests and desires, but the lesson we must learn is that people are not our source. In the midst of your isolation, you can turn to Christ and discover that His love truly does satisfy. Jesus understands loneliness and rejection. He experienced isolation from people. Because he understands, he is able to bring acceptance and love.

Christ brings you love, acceptance, and intimate communion with the God of love. With Christ, you are not alone. He conquers your loneliness by coming to dwell within you. Loneliness is removed by the presence of the indwelling Christ.

There is precious communion with Christ, when a lonely person discovers that the love of Christ is real and satisfying. There is an old saying, "Blessed are the homesick, for they shall come home." Loneliness and isolation are signs of homesickness, which can only be healed by coming home to Christ.

Christ makes us whole. His love makes us whole, and out of the overflow of Christ's love within us we can then show love and compassion for those around us. Out of the overflow of His love and acceptance for you, which heals your loneliness, you can show love and caring towards those around you.

He knocks at the door of your heart; the presence of Christ is real. But He must be invited into your heart, into the center of your being.

Receive Him; receive His cleansing and forgiveness and love. Allow Him to have the control of your life in a genuine surrender, and His loving presence will fill you, removing loneliness and unrest. May the peace of Christ fill you now!

A Prayer of Surrender:

Dear Lord Jesus, please fill me with your love, and wash away all my sins. I surrender my heart and life to you. I ask you to receive me and make me whole.

Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins, to cleanse me and forgive me. Thank you for dying on the cross for me, to make me a child of God. I turn away from all my sins, with all my heart.

I receive you, Lord Jesus, as the Lord and Savior of my life. I ask you to rule in my heart and life from now on. I ask you to fill me with your loving presence, and guard me with your divine protection.

I ask you to strengthen me and help me, to live for you from now on. I ask you to fill me with love so that I can love other people with a pure love. Fill me with love so that I can love you with all of my heart. Amen.

Take your prayers and stick 'em where the sun don't shine. I am so sick of you bible thumping assholes who want to shove your useless religions down people's throats as if it is the answer to everything. People need something REAL, not mystical shady promises...the deal is that you will STILL be poor, but by your standards, you will just learn to like it. Fuck that.

By anonymous at 29,May,12 22:22

Christ will solve nothing in anyone's life, it's just placebo for retards.

By anonymous at 03,Jun,12 23:37

You're life sucks because you don't have an iPhone?? People come on here and write about horrific things: rape, physical abuse, mental illness and you think your petulant attitude about not having things equates? Grow up.

By anonymous at 09,Jun,12 07:05

Dude, I am 52 years old and I have been poor all of my fucking life. I have a 12 year old car that breaks down every six months. I work nights at $10 an hour because it is all I could find. I have like $44 in the bank. I hope it gets better for you because it did not for me. I hate this life more than you could possibly imagine.

By anonymous at 24,Jul,12 23:07

I am 50 years old. I was married with three small sons to a man who abused me nearly every day for five years. I walked with my toddler, and baby in a stroller to a legal aid attorney one day and divorced him. He never paid his child support. I worked, without a college degree to support my sons. Most of my earnings went to day care. I decided the only way my sons would have a chance in this world is if I went to college and got a good job. I had no family to help me. My ex-husband moved to another state and never once saw his sons. I worked nights, while ny oldest son 12, watched over his little brothers. I received my degree and went to graduate school and graduated with a 4.0 gpa. One month after graduation, I found out I had cancer. I underwent chemotherapy. I was very ill, but in remission for two years. I just received news it's back. My sons are all adults now. My oldest is a carpenter. My middle son graduated from medical school last year. My youngest is an English teacher in Japan. I cannot work. I am sick. I am lonely. I am afraid. I never re-married. I have to family. All died. But, I watched something on TV the other night that reminded me no matter how bad you have it, someone, somewhere is worse off. It showed a story about a mother, in Africa, living in a mud hut, with five small children. She is dying of AIDS. HER husband just died. Her children are starving. They have no social programs to help her. The camera men gave what little food they had to her small, starving children. Three of them are also dying of AIDS. It really made MY life look like a dream. So, I realize everything is relevent, but if you have a roof over your head, food to eat and just one friend, can make it. You really can. Life is very unfair, but try to think of one thing for which you can be grateful. For me, it is my sons. Their success, their happiness and their love for me is all I need. (I hope this helped someone).

By anonymous at 15,Sep,12 02:14

but anybody here should read 'My friend Matt and Henna the whore' by Adam Zameenzad

By anonymous at 05,Apr,13 17:03

To the poster(s) who dissed the person who talked about Jesus Christ as the ultimate answer: I too hated any mention of Christ from Christians. I was a miserable 20 year old (58 now) who truly was lost and was convinced there was a God but sought Him out in New Age(basically Hindu based philosophies). A friend who I surfed with challenged me to consider Christ and after a 6 month period of circumstances, I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. Just my 2 cents: I don't regret my decision and I do believe that if a person seeks out God and is open to Jesus, He will guide you to Himself.
Much Aloha!

By anonymous at 13,Apr,13 23:08

Just listen to your heart and not the crap you see on tv that influences how shallow people think and live. Your heart knows the way.
