It’s your birthday today? Didn’t even know one of my best friends birthdays. Even if you don’t get anything, you could still take it easy. I’ve had some birthdays where nothing special happened, i just used it as an excuse to be lazy and kick back.

I remember when I first uploaded art here a while ago and some of them were of me attempting suicide. These two albums pretty much define pretty much my whole life. Don’t think coronavirus has anything to do with this. I’ve always been depressed and suicidal (to the point to where I’ve accepted it). I pretty much ditched all of society (or at least the normal part of it) a while before the pandemic began. I feel like I’m losing my mind, living inside some evil, twisted fantasy. It’s only a matter of time before I’m completely fucked up.
 
You think it’s bad now? I’ve got some terrible news. Things only get worse in this world.

I’m tired…I’m literally tired of living through this life…all the heavy manual labor that comes with it…I’m tired of it… I feel as though I was born a slave and there’s no escape from it…

Well, it is a capitalist world most part of the world, so, by you mean “gets worse”, partially true, somethings in the world will indeed get worse, but some do gets better, but the capitalist system made the world lean on “worse”.

I really don’t want to participate in this argument, but I think that this discussion is getting out of topic for a Depression Thread and is more fitting for the Political Thread. . So I wholeheartedly recommend you guys to take this theme over there or PMs.
 
~~Why the Depression thread tends to go political anyways?~~

Deletion reason: Rule #6- use the Generals >> Politics thread if you want to talk about this

I gave up on making friends a long time ago. After many years of failing I just didn’t care anymore. Now I’m depressed because I’ve been alone for so long and have no life. Making friends online isn’t going to fix this. You’re going to have to try to make friends in real life, but with covid, it’s almost impossible. Maybe you should give up. At least that way you won’t have a false sense of hope of making friends, because hope is a terrible feeling to have. It keeps you from giving up and forces you to continue trying desperately to do something that you’ll never be able to do. You probably don’t even need friends.

Eh, hopes aren’t always a terrible feeling as you said, if handled with “realistic hope”.
 
Seems like covid created a despair-embracing mindset for you.
 
Sure giving up something is practical in many things in life, but still, must go along with “realistic hope”, or you might like “defensive pessimism”.

On the internet it’s easy, but in real life it’s very hard. It’s sad nobody can see their friends anymore because of covid, but get used to it. Things will never be as they once were. Social distancing, lockdowns, mask wearing, will all outlast the coronavirus and will stay with us forever. Even if the coronavirus pandemic does end, everyone will have been locked inside a prison for so long that they won’t want to leave it. First people hated it. Now they’re used to it, and it’s only a matter of time (if the time hasn’t passed yet) where people are dependent on it. We’re going to be doing the shit we’ve been doing for the rest of our lives.
 
You know life has turned into shit to where you have to go online to make friends, friends you will never know in real life and will never be able to see in person. I guess it’s possible if you used Discord or some other video/voice chat, but there is no way I would ever do that. I may have had friends in the past, but I haven’t seen any of them in years or even decades.
