Im having a sad day today because I feel disgusted by society's lack of empathy. Idk I just keep wishing I could fall off this planet, I dont feel like I fit in. So much obsession with the material world & it all seems really really pointless. Like REALLY pointless. Like people are so quick to hate eachother and i just feel rejected based on what i look like, my body. I feel like I cant be accepted here, and I just have a really hard time relating ti people and their preoccupation with the material world, reality shows, sex, looks, just absolutely everything. I dont know how to get off this island.

@zen-man okay, thank you for telling me that. I couldn't be sure if you were or weren't, so I tried to clarify in case of both. Thank you for the opportunity to stand up for myself in a safe space though, because in my past people have often minimized my experiences and gaslighted me, just so they could have an ego boost and be right in an 'argument', to where I abandoned my reality and experiences to not let them feel guilty about saying something mean to me in that process and to keep everything peaceful. I let them tell me what I feel, think, and experience isn't "right". So I really really appreciate you being kind and letting me speak up, even if it was a simulated pseudo experience and you werent trying to be hurtful. I appreciate it. :)

@Blueberries1234 generally, I see a lot of people fretting over social media and the media like it was real life. To often is not. And it often makes people feel worse about their own life, and the state of the world.

The world has always been a sh!tty place, full of tribalism and the strong dominating the weak. "Life isn't fair." You can literally drive yourself crazy trying to take on all the worlds problems as your own personal burden. The trick is to do good and be nice despite all the negativity in the world.

None of that means we shouldn't try to change things for the better, just to realize where we are, and where we've come from. I can't think of a year in my 55 years where there wasn't some violent conflict or natural disaster occurring somewhere in the world. I grew up with the Vietnam war on the tv and in the papers. Easy to get dejected, cynical, defeatist and wonder why bother.

Well, be the person you want to be, be the force for change in your community the way you want it, be smart about who you support and why. Have principles and stick to them. We can only strive to live the best lives we can.

@zen-man yes exactly, I like what you wrote a lot. lol Im watching "Blue Planet" on Netflix right this second and drawing comparisons to my life/human nature. It's all the same :p Everything seems so silly to be honest. A bit meaningless. I don't know who to help or why, it all seems silly. I feel like I just want to make art and help myself. Maybe read some books. Love seemed like a worthy cause, but generally seems like an illusion.
