I am going to assume that the majority of people on here are younger. Probably in their teens ans twenty’s. I find it sad that so many young people are so lonely and possibly suicidal.
I am middle aged and due to a series of unfortunate events and genetics, I have been alienated from society, confined to dealing with the demons in my head due to my mental illness. I was able to cope through medication, the benefit of being younger and having friends and the ability to work. All of this has been stripped away. It’s hard to make friends and share a history of stories and adventures when you have to start all over half way through your life. When I was a kid I could make a friend and be happy in a few hours but now it seems impossible.
I have physical back issues which, when I was twenty, never thought would happen to me. I always thought I would basically be in excellent health, have a million friends, and excel at a job I liked that paid a lot of money. But it usually never turns out that way. Life has little quarks that can turn your life upside down in a matter of minutes.
I am not saying being young is easy but I definitely took my health and attitude and energy and my spark for life for granted.
I hope that everyone on here finds what they are looking for because in the grand scale of things, we are only here for a very short period of time.
