Don't plunge headfirst into depression. You're still needed, especially here! Things are horrible right now, but you may live long enough to see people finally waking up, and until then ... you can disperse the cold water bucket showers for that to one day happen.
You don't want to leave the world to the assholes you just described, right?
Uhm, happy birthday, by the way.
I'm 70 already, and I feel like going myself. Been depressed for life, it seems. World is so f**ked up now, and family members are being diagnosed with cancer. Too much of a coward to off myself, and things might get better somehow. Hang in there----why give your enemies anything to rejoice over?
*smiles*, it's nice to hear you define it as cowardice not to off yourself, I see myself as a coward too. I just can't put up the courage to choose to end my suffering and leave my loved ones behind. There's my parents, my siblings, their spouses and children who'd miss me, my friends, my colleagues. You could also see it as courage to keep on living for the joy I bring others for being alive, but I mainly feel it as cowardice myself.
Yet it gives me great courage to know I'm not alone, in disliking this world.
