Mental prison

by Jhecev
  1. Everywhere and everything feels like a prison. I’m always somewhere I don’t want to be and doing something I don’t want to do. It feels like I have no sanctuary. Sometimes I go far away and it sort of feels better but it’s just me running and not real. I think one day if I work hard enough I can escape.

I feel like this a lot, so this is just my take on things.

If you look around you, see all these people just doing shit. Going about their lives. And if you look at their faces, none of them particularly want to do any of it either. Everybody’s just a slave to habituality, and nobody knows it better than themselves. But what the fuck else is there? Somebody’s got to pay the bills. So they go on like puppets their whole lives.

The next conclusion I arrived at, was that there is no place to run away to “where it all makes sense”. It doesn’t make any more sense at the beach than it does in a restaurant.

And finally, everybody’s got to make their peace with how meaningless their days feel. That’s how they all seem to live.

I cope by slowing down. Lifetimes are for the most part, composed of meaningless everyday shit like bathing, travelling to work, cooking. So why not let them consume you, you know? For as long as you’re here. Spend an hour taking peas out of their pods and acknowledging it as time off your clock. That’s all the meaning there seems to be.

I’ve been in prison the last 5 years (1 in jail & 4 on Probation) for a crime I didn’t commit. I think I’m being stalked by a Pedophile on the team, which they continuously (&constantly) sexually harass me because I am a Homosexual. Because of this I am thinking of taking my life. I think about it every day, & because of it also I have been bedridden for the last 3 years. I think the only thing that keeps me alive is the thought that some people have it much worse & the empathy I feel for them.

The fact that you’ve endured all of that and are still here, breathing, telling your story is truly amazing and inspiring. Homophobia is disgusting and I can’t express how sorry I am that you have to be the victim of such harassment. I truly wish you the best.
