despair II Anonymous 36216

Made a post here a year ago about my depression and just feelings of helplessness and overwhelming despair, I’ve experienced a lot of things since then but everything is essentially the same.

I think its called being passively suicidal when you don’t actively try to kill yourself but don’t really do anything to have a good life either. I’ve tried to become a better person but I just keep failing..I’ve gotten taken advantage of by a guy I trusted, let myself get taken advantage of by so many other guys, fallen out with so many friends… all in my head thinking this was what it was to be a normal person and experience all these new social things. I was overwhelmed and threw myself into everything I was too shy to do before, and now all I feel is dirty and ashamed.

It was not all entirely bad..had some accomplishments but I just feel hollow inside.

Does anyone get depressed watching anime bc all the characters are so young and their lives are so interesting and have so many possibilities? And thinking wow I used to be at that age but when I was that age I was a depressed hermit who had no friends and I still am now.

I feel like I’ll never be able to connect to anyone, I’m so lonely.

Well… At least you had that guy you trusted and friends.

Anime creators are in the boredom-killing business. Unplug for a while, go for a walk, take a 2-hour nap, read a fiction book or a philosophy book. Stay strong, the world is suffering now more than ever. Without a bad day, you won't recognize a good day. Things are going to get better in the next month or so. If you're currently unhappy, that's an appropriate response because things are messed up right now worldwide

I feel like this sometimes too when I watch anime or read manga. But I've learned most of the creators of the best works are actually NEETs or depressed or having existential crises all the time. The creator of Sailor Moon said she wanted to write something where a character had all the sorts of friends she always wished she had.

It's okay to enjoy it for what it is without criticizing yourself.

Cheer up OP

OP, it's never too late to turn your life around. Write off the past years and focus now on what you want to do now. The more you move forward, the less you will look back.

Don't focus on high school especially, it's a difficult time for most people. At no other time in your life will you be forced as an (almost) adult to see the same people everyday with power to leave. Just because you had no friends doesn't mean it's your fault. Sometimes other people are just shitty. Small towns especially can be super cliquey and have dumb beliefs.

Not really, anime isn't real life, yk? A lot of stuff that's cool in anime is cringy or improbable irl.
I agree too that you shouldn't watch high school stuff so much, personally I like reading seinen because it's more relatable when it comes to the struggles of being an adult. Either that or read/watch stuff with protags you can relate to more, like the protag in Watamote or in Neeko wa Tsurai Yo!
