Hello Onision Community. I've been asking myself this question for a while: Is life really worth living? Of course when you have an incredible life or as good as what you hoped for, it is worth it. But when it's not? As an example, I wish I could've known a better life (and I'm only 21). I don't need money or love to make that happen. The only thing I needed was that the things that made my life not worth living not to happen. For example, not going through not 1 but 2 s**ual assaults (at age 12 and 21) would've probably made my life better. Not meeting the wrong people who either mocked me, manipulated me or made me try drugs also could've made my life better. And all these things that happen in life, that convinces you that your life isn't worth living, make you feel all sorts of emotions like anger, sadness or fear. For example, I constantly feel anger towards how unfair our world is, sad about living in it and fear towards men (because of the assault, I'm automatically afraid that a men will assault me). And honestly, since I can't see what makes my life worth living I can't feel any positive emotions. So I ask again : Is life really worth living when you hate everything about yours? I'd like to have your opinion. Thank you for reading me. Have a great day/evening.
Yes it is. You cannot control how peopld treat you, but you can control how you deal with it.
Don’t get me wrong, life is s*** and people are s***.
But there are good things. Family. Friends. Love. Music. YouTube. Festivals. Computer Games. All kinds of things.
You cannot let the darkness control you and ruin you. And at the end of the day, you are alive because you are meant to be. I don’t believe in God or whatever, but you are alive because it is your time to be. There are tons of reasons why you could be dead right now, but you’re not so be thankful because they’re are people dying that don’t want to be. Be grateful for the clothes you wear, your right to education, the food on the table and even the fact that you are able to post because you have internet.
Life is hard and it will always be hard. You are young, you have a full life ahead filled with opportunity for things to get better. Once you hit Rock Bottom, the only way left is up. Strength is keeping on living.
Maybe buy an animal if you can afford, looking after another life gives you more incentive to live. Live for your parents. Live for your friends. Live because of spite.
And live for yourself. Only you can find why you want to live.
And another thing, love yourself and then find people that love you the way you want to be loved. Don’t wallow in self-pity and change the way you think about yourself. Yes the way they treated you was wrong, and now you have to change how you see yourself so you can find people that value you. “We accept the amount of love we deserve” so build your self-esteem and don’t accept anything less. Use what happened to you as a lesson and a way to build yourself back up.

Yes, of course it is. I'm not gonna blow sunshine up your ass, but at the end of the day, life is worth it.
I've been through way too much crap too. And it hurts, and I still struggle with it everyday. Things aren't always gonna be pretty. I have great days and I have terrible days. But I know that I'll have a good days again if I give it some time. I do what I have to do to get through the hard times. Finding a coping method is so important. When you find it, cling to it until you don't need it anymore. Find the poeple who are gonna build you up instead of break you down. If someone brings even an ounce of negitivity to your life, drop them. It's not worth it in the end. You are need to make sure you are ultimately more important to yourself than others are to you. It sounds terrible, but that's the way you get yourself out of a rut. Lots of people will put you through hell and you have to be strong enough to walk away from them. When you are looking out for your own happiness, you will be happier. We live in a selfish world, and it's likely no one is gonna put you first in their life. So you have to put yourself first.
You get there, one step at a time, however you have to. And no one should fault you for how you have to get there. And soon enough, life will feel like it's worth living again.
