I never said you'd have to have it published.
Nothing wrong with writing a few words a day.
Besides, what's stopping you from donating a little or maybe offering some canned food every now and again?
I'm not saying you have to do anything or just give yourself totally to charity.
Just do do some things to remind yourself that you are human.
You need to BREATH it all in, humanity that is.
Stop treating yourself like you're helpless or totally trapped wherever you think you are, jeez...

If it was that easy, do you really think there would be a single depressed person in the western world?

Its just as easy to be a miserable fuck-wit. Honestly it takes zero effort to smile at something, but it becomes habit to be miserable, day in and day out. People who are so tragically disgusted with their own lives, are proof that this whole society is dissolving into 2 groups, Entitled little shits who are sad all the time because they choose to be, and people who genuinely enjoy life, no matter what because its a gift. Something to be cherished. If you look for just 3 seconds, i guarantee there is something to be cheerful about. But just now as you read that, i'm certain your first thought was "No there isn't" If you're that depressed, that sad, that pathetically disgusted with your life, FUCKING CHANGE IT. Don't be a sad, depressed, pathetic lump. Get off your butt, turn off the TV or the Computer or the Wii, or the DS or the 360 or the PS3 and fucking get a grip. Life isn't gonna tap it's foot impatiently waiting for you, its already going. If you sit by and let it go by, then sucks to be you. When you stop pitying yourself, then you'll be alright.

Im actually laughing. Well done.

Maybe you should work as a shrink. You have obviously figured things out better than anyone else. Seriously though, if those are your thoughts, you have a lot to learn. The only pathetic thing here is your opinion on this. Im absolutely disgusted, no joke.

SadakoMoose:
Are you happy?

Let's see...

{1} I am in good health.
{2} I am creative, intelligent, and funny.
{3} I am not suffering too terribly in this recession of ours.
{4} I have a girlfriend.
{5} I have an almost supernatural power of luck and timing.
{6} Nobody died.

Yeah, I'm good.

Drink a beer! Watch some Anime! Have Sex with a girl! Laugh together while you're doing it! Snort a line! Watch some Chikara Pro Wrestling! I'm going to go watch a dirty movie!

Having faith in Mankind

This pretty much sums it up. We live in a society where drinking, sex, drugs, porn, ego, flaming, trolling, exploiting, competition, demeaning others, hate speech, anti-common sense, and forgetting about reality is what people think is best in life. If that's not a reason to be depressed, then I need to find another planet.

I've gotten to where I am today by clawing and fighting for every last bit I could get. My story might not rival the tales of the destitute, or the third world countries, but I gave up having fun so I could, somehow, climb out of the poverty line my family has been stuck in for generations. As I grow up, I realize now that I could lose everything I work for in one, easy step, or have it taken away from me because of some new legislation. So yes, I have things, but if I stop, I'll lose it all. I haven't got time to party any more than the movie heroes have time to bleed. Sure it makes me cynical and boring, but my family is relying on me.

While I wouldn't say that sex and drugs are the BEST in life, though they are fun, where the hell are you getting "ego, flaming, trolling, exploiting, competition, demeaning others, hate speech, anti-common sense"? What about those fun things that I listed is at all related to "hate-speech" or "anti common sense"? Who's being flamed? Who am I demeaning?
Is it the pro wrestling I mentioned? Or the laughing?
These are just recommendations.
As much as people need voices or concern, worry, and determination, they also need a voice telling them to enjoy life while it appears to last.

but...I'm happy. Granted I'd be happier living with my GF but that's only a few short months away. Other than that I am pretty freaking happy! I've got a stable job, decent income with few expenses, a good game collection, a good book collection (ie: good collection of books, not collections of bibles) and, a dog so neurotic he could have literally come from a freaking anime. And when all else fails there's soda and, coffee (one or the other, I mixed and matched before but then Coke discontinued Coke Blak)

Look dude, its painfully obvious you dont know the next thing about depression. Thats not a bad thing. It becomes a bad thing when you decide to act like a smartass in spite of that. Frankly, it comes across as ignorant and insulting. So, kindly, go about your life the way you think you have to, but dont talk about things you know nothing about.

I don't have time to be miserable.

Too many video games...

See, now you are acting like a complete sad sack. You instantly say things like 'Apparently you don't know the first thing about depression' well, thats where you're wrong. I have depression. I've been clinically diagnosed as depressed. I used to take antidepressants. My parents have depression, as do both my sisters. So on that point, stop acting like you are the only person who knows what depression is, or is even afflicted by it. Second, i never said depression is a bad thing. Its a bad thing when you let it consume your life. I used to be all depressed and sad and think that i was worthless, and that my life was spiraling out of control and that nobody would care if i died, but i simply decided to not let it get to me as much. Depression can be controlled if you exercise a little bit of self control. Mind over matter did wonders for me. So go ahead, flame me for this post, or find something else to pick me apart over, i simply don't care. I won't let you get to me, so do whatever you want man. But do not think that you are the only person in the world suffering from depression. Its a daily battle for everyone who has it, not just you. Have a good one :P

YAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!

Oh, you too? High-five! How much are you getting here. Where I'm sitting, I'm thinking "TWELVE INCHES!!!". Oh, and it's snowing.

To quote Nietzsche: "To those human beings who are of any concern to me I wish suffering, desolation, sickness, ill-treatment, indignities - I wish that they should not remain unfamiliar with profound self-contempt, the torture of self-mistrust, the wretchedness of the vanquished: I have no pity for them, because I wish them the only thing that can prove today whether one is worth anything or not - that one endures."

To live is to suffer, and to suffer is to live. Peace out.

Happy or not happy, let's agree that things aren't, in fact, going to shit. Because they aren't. We're living in an age of enlightenment and free information, and for all you brats know, other eras were 10 times as shitty as this. Man will be fine. The planet will be fine. Humanity adapts, and is more resillient than you can imagine. At the same time, learn to accept that things are different. They might even be weird. They might be confusing, upsetting or even morally reprehensible. None of them are, however, the one thing that makes humanity "unworthy" or other such nonsense.

I would like to correct you on that "enlightenment and free information" statement... SOPA, ACTA and the new bill that is the same thing?

We keep having to defeat the same proposals over and over again, enlightenment my ass

Comparative enlightenment, at least. Bills like this have always existed, and most likely will keep coming. Gaming and the internet is a relatively new medium, a few bumps in the road need to be ironed out before we get there.

But we will get there. Sooner or later.

There is no need to force your happiness on others because your life is going good. That is a little selfish to me. My life is going good, so you have to be doing good as well.

I do not wish to spend my life keeping an eye out for the same bill over and over again just because politicians have nothing better to do than to serve their corporate masters... they could try representing their electorate by understanding fully the bills being proposed and doing what their electorate voted for them to do which is maybe... THEIR JOB?!!

we don't vote them in to ignore us or else there is just no point in politics, their titles and money should just stop... maybe THEN they will think twice before fucking us over

Happy? No. I have what I need, but there is little to nothing that stimulates the neurotransmitters necessary for me to feel happy.

However, I am content, and I've decided that's enough.

I'm not miserable, I'm neutral. But I'm also incapable of being cheery in general. Sorry, but the whole 'WOW OMG YES LIFE IT'S SO MAGICAL AND DELICIOUS HHRUUUGNNNGHH ENJOY THE SUNSHINEY DAY' just...eew. And the people who are like that tend to not get along well with me.

And I will never have faith in mankind. It has been my belief for a while that we are quite definitively fucked, to put it in layman's terms.

Damn damn damn damn damn, now all the simple pleasures are getting washed away in the big picture. That's what I get for starting down the path of "It's all pointless."

You had to act once against a bad law for video games, and you're already "spending your life keeping an eye out"?

You're exaggerating big time. Nor does anything you said help against the idea that this, with all of its hardships, is probably the easiest era so far.

You're a dull boy...

first off, SOPA and PIPA wouldn't have only affected games, it concerned movies, music and television as well

Secondly, there wasn't just one bad law, it's been repeated and retitled from SOPA to PCIP which is the SAME bill but with a different title, but we still have time to wait for that - right now the worry is ACTA which is the same as SOPA but with even more privacy invading and general media censorship and it would have been passed without question or even us knowing about it if it weren't for wikileaks, this isn't exaggerated...

you can go back to your Skyrim now, you don't have to thank the rest of us for protecting YOUR privacy

I'm not happy today, but Idiocracy was shit, so I voted that.

I'm happy, it's all the miserable buggers I see while I'm walking to work that are the problem

SadakoMoose:

depressing snip

ok NOW i feel more miserable......

If there's nothing to be positive about, then there's nothing to be negative about, and it works the other way as well. It's a balance that has to be tended to. Some people take things way more seriously then others, some like their tinfoil hats, some don't.

That's just how things are, go enjoy your own time.

I voted yes. I'm not ALWAYS happy, but in general I'm of a positive bent :)

Thaaaank you! I don't think Brave New World is any good either! OT: I would have sex, but I'm to damn unusual to get laid...well I could try the local call girls. And I chose coke because some Coke-a-Cola would be pretty refreshing right now.

Like so many people on here, you have made me more happier than I was earlier!

And to all you guys who post replies like, "Yeah, well, I am pretty happy. I'm just a realist. I know I'm a bunch of atoms, and the world is controlled by dicks, but I'm not sad, or whatever..." You guys need to read what you just wrote. Happy people aren't happy because they see reality, but because they see abstract things like love and joy in people, including themselves!

Clever people are less happy, I think I read that somewhere. So well done for being so clever, shame on you for bringing everybody down just to show it. And if you start another sentence with the words "By 2020 China will...." I will take you down.

i am not sad nor am i happy

forever neutral

I like philosophy, and I reserve the right to complain because nothing gets solve when you just go "SHUT UP, IT'S ALRIGHT".

But I am at least slightly happy that this thread is not of the tone that anyone who complains is miserable, and sounds more along the lines of "LOOK KITTIES!".

It's hard not to feel wistful today - today being the birthday of two of the most influential and talented hip-hop producers of all time; J Dilla, and Nujabes, who both died too young.

It doesn't help that after a year of struggling through life with it, my Grandmother finally decided to stop receiving medication for her Leukemia yesterday.

But apart from that I try to keep a cheery outlook on life. I'm generally quite appreciative of the society I live in.

It's time to stop caving to peer pressure and stop caring what other people think.

I'll start with you

I love talking about fun things! I also love turning my dorm room into a giant blanket fort at any time my roommate leaves for more than a 24 hour period. You studied all night for the exam? That's cool. I studied all night for the exam in a GIANT BLANKET FORT.

You're right, OP, why should I sit around thinking about having fun... when I could be out there HAVING fun? Thank you and good day!

I think you have a pretty good point, OP. If all people have to complain about is existentialism, "I'm a bucket of nerves," etc, then those people are obviously very well-off.

Not everyone has friends to socialize with, girls to have sex with,places to go or anything meaningful to look forward to. Touting happiness in the same way as Depression etc is presented here won't help anything.

For some it isn't so easy to enjoy life/put problems aside/improve etc.

Well, yeah, with me I just hit up some parties I found on Fetlife through some friends on the 420chan /kinky/ board. Then, after some socializing and elbow rubbing, I found a domme and some other nice people. Love the one you're with, right? Or find someone in the first place...
Interesting fact:
Of people who try cocaine only once in a 2-3 year period, only 5% become addicted.
Unrelated fun fact:
Every other birthday for me is pure bliss, followed by an impromptu pool party...
