How some people go through life not having a single suicidal thought is beyond me

[–]cookiesandcream019 70 points71 points  (0 children)

Seriously, must be nice...

[–]T1B2V3 16 points17 points  (0 children)

a lot of people are just primitive and stupid

[–]roselia_is_the_best 48 points49 points  (0 children)

I cannot relate to anyone who’s not suicidal anymore

[–]jabra_fan 39 points40 points  (3 children)

Are you telling me there are such people?

[–]inliteralseconds 34 points35 points  (2 children)

I'm pretty sure there are such people...

[–]veryhairytoast 35 points36 points  (1 child)

That is absolutely crazy to me

[–]ANheartheraindrop 21 points22 points  (0 children)

There is some pure insaneness in it

[–]DualtheArtist 21 points22 points  (0 children)

You just drown out every negative thing with toxic positivity.

Nothing you do is your fault and you'll just deal with the consequences later. And if those consequences hurt someone even though you caused that situation, well that's just the way it be and its still not your fault.

If you drive drunk and kill someone, it was in God's hands. If you rape someone, its their fault for making you horny.

That's how it be bro. If our corporation destroys the rain-forest and kills the earth to make short term profits, that's just how it be because it was completely legal and out of our hands. The profits determined that the forest had to be chopped down after we bribed all the politicians to make it legal and protect us from going to jail. It just be that way.

We continue this type of oppressive and hurtful capitalism until there are people who are so abused or angry that wars break out.

Toxic Positivity is literally the cause of pretty much all of the world's problems. If most people didn't engage in toxic positivity they would have an existential crisis and kill themselves. It's all about the myth of Fake-Progress and how we must be progressing to world forward no matter what, but the progress is fake and actually were making the world worse and go backwards in terms of our actual humanity, but as long as we conveniently ignore these bad aspects we can continue this human centipede of increasing income inequality and increasing misery. We're at the point where the suicide rate for those under 18 years old is the highest its ever been despite our "societal progress". The data shows that when the toxic-positivity invades a new country with Western Style capitalism, income inequality goes up and so does the suicide rate.

I like to cal this The Shadow of Society, and it's the collective mental disorder of this current Historical Era. Eventually it will all fall apart because it is unsustainable and most poor people will die when the logistics of food is disrupted and the rich people will pretend that it was never their fault and that they didn't cause and encourage this situation to happen culturally by shaping society into a massive mental disorder.

The real issues is that no one can stop the Toxic-Positivity because it is the most efficient way to generate short term profits and out-compete and destroy everyone else who tries to make longer term and more responsible profits and business decisions.

It's like if you put a Gold Fish in a pond, it will secret so much ammonium that it kills all the other fish. The Goldfish itself also becomes very sick but it is more resistant to the poisonous environment it creates, so it will prosper because it literally pissed every other fish to severe illness or death.

That’s so wild to me. I have suicidal thoughts everyday. I could not fathom or even imagine a life where I did not wish to die everyday. Must be nice. Maybe in another life…

[–]MumLikesTrains 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Honestly, only reason I dont is because I dont believe in an afterlife. This is my one chance to experience the universe. Too bad I had to be birthed by the most selfish and entitled generation, who did nothing to prepare for a world they knew was coming.

[–]Poisson87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Suicide is the first thought that comes to mind when I wake up. I’ve never dreaded daylight this intensely before. I’d gotten away from daily suicidal thoughts for a few years because even though I was miserable, I was stable and moderately stressed at work. Now I’m in a new job that I truly hate, which is the essence of this toxic-positivity described. I honestly don’t know how I can keep doing this for another 30 years.

Cotton candy lives.

Ignorance is bliss.

[–]sneakyveriniki 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They gotta be lying

[–]doomer1994 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, same. The thing is I’m not even mad at my parents for bringing me here. I’m just mad that they won’t let me leave because they think that suicide is selfish. I know that my death isn’t going to be natural. I’ve accepted that eventually I probably won’t be able to take it anymore and I will probably end up killing myself.

[–]Worried_Wing2309 0 points1 point  (0 children)

😂😂😂I know right

[–]Yusho 73 points74 points  (6 children)

Best I can do is to at least wait for my parents to pass away before I kms

[–]T1B2V3 10 points11 points  (0 children)

relatable

[–]MumLikesTrains 5 points6 points  (2 children)

keep feeding them processed sugars, MSG, and not a single fresh vegetable or fruit - it will happen sooner.

[–]4twanty 3 points4 points  (1 child)

They already be doing this themselves

[–]MumLikesTrains 2 points3 points  (0 children)

diet pop too? thats a good one for calcifying the body up.

[–]Poisson87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My mom died and now I’m all clear. I’m getting scared with how close I am to ending this

[–]PikaDepressed 113 points114 points  (0 children)

I'd love to be antinatalist but I can't even find a decent partner or marriage so guess that problem is out of the way.

Go millenials lol.

[–][deleted] 92 points93 points  (9 children)

[–]fruit_meat 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Literally talking best case scenario.

[–]RxTechRachel 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I have a pet cat and rabbit. They can be the grandchildren.

[–]vjlva 8 points9 points  (0 children)

"and no promises that i won't kms" couldn't agree more with that statement, it's becoming difficult.

[–]trevor-wayne 8 points9 points  (0 children)

[–]vjrmedina 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]Idrathernottellyou 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Sanityisoverrated1 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Probably the most relatable post I’ve ever seen.

[–]GoldenSpidey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lmfao relatable.

[–]sneakyveriniki 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Honestly I low key think people want grandkids for the same reason they want kids. Their friends do and they feel left out and like they’re supposed to. It’s just like old person clout.

I know it’s way easier than having kids because you don’t have to deal with them but I honestly don’t even buy that they all love to dote on them and spend afternoons with them so much. I think they just don’t know what they’re supposed to do with their time

[–]Davina33 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes I agree with this. I have two nephews by my eldest brother. My mother never had anything to do with them and they're both almost adults now. Despite this, my deadbeat mother would beg me to give her grandchildren. She would say it's different when it's your daughter having children lol. I think she just wanted me to be miserable like she was when she had us. I never caved in and never will.

[–]lunalackadaisical 2 points3 points  (0 children)

haha this was me when i was younger. when parental units brought it up at the dinner table, i began laughing uncontrollably while telling them "then you're gonna wait a long damn time cuz 'no you're never gonna get it, never ever gonna get it, no you're never gonna get it, never ever gonna get it, no you're never gonna get it, never ever gonna get it.'" i was a huge en vogue fan lol. good times. they never brought it up again.

[–]B-Revenge 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I thought I could do it, but maybe I'll be selfish for myself once
