Why bother living if people hate you

Why should I bother living?

Hi I would say suicide is a bad choice no matter how hard your life is just count your blessings your health your a roof over your head all the food that you can taste all the things that you can see and hear the protection that you have the blood of Jesus on the cross was meant just for you Jesus loves you and eternity is so expensive to waste when you choose death over eternity.
Christians do not commit suicide your life belongs to God and we have no right to take it away.
The Bible says that the just shall live by faith. Typically, not in every case, a suicide is a result of a person losing hope and losing faith. In most cases, a suicide would be lost. Not only because of that, but the Bible says “Thou shalt not kill”, and that would include yourself. So if it’s a sin to take life that you cannot create, that would include your own life. There are rare exceptions: for instance, Samson. He basically was a suicide. He laid down his life to save others. Technically, a person who kills himself to save others is a suicide, but they may be doing it rather out of love than hopelessness. So, only God knows the heart. There are some people who have taken their lives because their grief was more than they could bear. They loved the Lord, they served the Lord, but they were in so much agony because of physical suffering or some emotional devastation or chemical change they may have done it. I would not venture to judge and say all suicides are lost. I would say that it’s the rare exception.

Why even bother living?

You're not alone... I'm speaking from experience. I know it's hard to see any positive stuff in life when we feel very overwhelmed with so much sad stuff going on and everything seems wrong. But, the idea of "hope" is worth living for... Even if you don't feel hopeful right now - just very sad and alone - tomorrow's another day and the day after that, and you never know what genuinely GOOD thing could happen that might be the beginning of the end of your pain and will help you see that there is still something to live for.

People who don't even know you care, such as anyone who posts an answer here for you... People in your life whom you might not think care, might actually care about you very much.

Clinical depression is terrible, as many sufferers & people in the health care field know all too well. It's hard to be brave and hang in there when all seems lost, but we have to keep trying and find a glimmer of hope for the future. Yes, sometimes the world can seem overwhelming, but the world is also full of possibilities (genuinely good and happy possibilities that we haven't even dreamed of!), so it's really a time to try to be more brave than you actually feel right now.

If you don't feel that you have anyone to live for right now, that could all change at any time. Hope! I know it's very hard to truly believe in hope during one's darkest moments, but it's all the more reason to cling to the whole idea of "hope."

You don't feel well at all right now (I understand), but that doesn't mean you will always feel so unwell and alone. As hard as it is right now, try to be brave. Remember, anyone who reads this - whether they post an answer for you or not - cares about you even though they don't know you. There are good people in the world, who want to be supportive. Please try to remember that. Remember, you're not as alone as you might feel.

Why do I hate people?

Why allow lazy people or people who aren t up to your standards so to speak take such a vital energy drain from you. If they suck, so what, everyone has an issue. I work too but don t feel it necessary to condemn others less fortunate or those who use the system to make ends meet. Don t worry about them. Why are you worried about what they do? Obviously using the system is a dead end job basically and just worry about doing yours and worrying less about who is doing what to get by. Chill out and worry about yourself, you need to focus inward and not external irritants. Recognize you can t control what others do and take care of your own health, meditate, use CBT, DBT, Buddah, Jesus, or Carl Sagan for all I give a ****, just let this trivial stuff go man, breathe...namaste

Why do people hate my very existence?

well i give my verdict on the subject since i was the one who stuck this up. i may hate myself and people who see me our frighted of me. probably down to the fact i look like a undertake. thought i’m not nasty to other people. i’m harsh on myself. i don’t think i’m better than anybody else in fact i don’t even see my self as a equal to any of my pears. also i fear its not correct to make myself feel better about myself by trying to act as if i had any form of intelligence , i feel it robs others of there superiority , for example i went to a school for disabilities for almost 9 years and now i been put back in mainstream and i struggle a lot. work is average to a degree and socialising is quite literally hell for me. people laugh at me , i’m always seem down. and worst of all i’m stuck with people who just want bring me up so they can bring me down. so i just avoid people as much as possible. well thats how its been for a long time. i just don’t know what to do. i spend most of life talking to myself because i got nobody to talk with and i just get board even if i do talk to someone because there only there out of morbid curiosity. purely because i’m like wired and strange. kinda why i really don’t like myself.

Atheists:Why bother continuing living?

First of all, if I'm operating under the assumption that this is the only life I'm going to get, then my life is infinitely more valuable due to the fact that it's infinitely more rare than living for an eternity in heaven. This makes all the things I do in this limited life infinitely more meaningful as they are contrasted with the billions of years in which I will be unable to do anything.

Secondly, I take issue with your assertion that a belief in god is relevant with respect to finding meaning in life. My life holds plenty of meaning to me and I don't believe in a god. The fact that I exist is a complete and utter refutation to your assertion that god is required to have meaning in your life.

Thirdly, your assertion that the only basis for morality is Judeo-Christian values is simply and demonstrably false. Secular morality has, is, and always will be superior to religious values due to their connection with the cohesion of society as a whole. Morality itself predates religion which utterly refutes your implied assertion that morality requires religion. What's more is that morality is capable of being found within the animal kingdom itself which summarily refutes the biblical claim that morality is written onto every person's heart so that they can tell the difference between good and evil.

Your argument that it is not possible to have a moral society without Judeo-Christian values is so patently absurd that it was summarily refuted by secular philosophers like Fredrich Nietzsche and even Immanuel Kant 200-300 years ago.

Read "Groundwork for the metaphysics of Morals" by Immanuel Kant or "The Gay Science" by Fredrich Nietzsche for some insight into just how persuasive the argument for secular ethics is.

Mental Health: Why should I bother living?

Listen to Andrew Magyar's answer. He has a point.

For 1.5 years I had passive suicidal thoughts. I am thinking exactly like you, but I never really acted on it. One day, I got lost in a mountain while hiking in an unfamiliar area. I had ventured to a stream-valley and attempted to scale it down (stupid move), but encountered a waterfall. I thought I was going to die for real, since many fatal accidents in the mountains started that way.
When I thought I was going to die for real, it really put things in perspective: yes, life is pointless, but I don't want to die THAT WAY. That's odd; didn't I want to die? That was the chance! I could just sit around, waiting for heavy rain to fall, and a.boom! flash flood, or b.hypothermia. But somehow, I tried to save myself. I didn't know why, I just wanted to survive. A lot of things suddenly matters to me. Suddenly I wanted to do x and y and z if I made it back alive, etc. When I made it back alive to the original trail after 12 hours of scaling almost vertical walls full of impenetrable bushes, I had many reasons to be alive. That situation must have provoked  the primordial survival instinct in my brain.

 I don't recommend you to put yourself in the same potentially fatal situation. This is just my opinion, but I think most people who are suicidal don't really want to get out from life; they just want to get out from whatever situation that causes pain for them.
I think it's rare that depression is purely caused by chemicals. Some external triggers play their parts, too. Please seek help from professionals in counselling or psychiatry. Don't let it spiralling downward further. I'm glad you shared your thoughts here, at the very least. It indicates that deep down, you actually want your situation to improve. Meanwhile, try to stay active. Make yourself try new things or do your hobbies. Things you used to enjoy as a child. Anything.

What is the point of living if you hate yourself and you want to die?

Even if you don't hate yourself and want to die, the question is fairly similar.

What the heck is the point in this thing called life?

And the simplest answer is nobody freakin' knows. But that is the best part about it. No one has any clue, so you can't do it wrong.

Any and all answers are valid depending on how you want to go about living your life. What anyone else thinks is completely irrelevant if it comes at the expense of your lifestyle.

But, I understand the feelings posed in the question make this a lot murkier. If you're not enjoying, what's the point to it all right?

Here's the easiest way to put it: It, again, depends solely on you to make a point of it.

Some like to turn to spirituality, religion or outright nihilism to answer this question. But the view that truly matters is your own. If you believe there's no point to it because of these feelings, then that's what you're sentencing yourself with.

However, these feelings do not last. You may find yourself with a completely different point of view when these feelings pass. So I'd suggest getting the help needed to resolve these feelings, and then asking the question again.

You'll find something that makes it all worthwhile. We all do eventually.

Hope this helps.
