Death wish without depression. How do you cope?

I see, so the truth value of a philosophical proposition is less important than how it makes us feel. Indeed, the point has been made that religiosity (at least in some cases) can be good for your mental health. Also kids seem ectasic at the prospect of Santa Claus living somewhere north of the Arctic circle.

Yes, believing in Santa Claus can bring some happiness but eventually it gets to a point where the belief becomes untenable and we learn to make our peace with it the best we can. Likewise, I’m not going to embrace a shallow "“philosophy” of happiness if I regard it, rightly or wrongly, as built on bs.

And no, I don’t dismiss happiness as new age mumbo jumbo, it’s Tolles new age claptrap that I dismiss as mumbo jumbo.

I happen to like you a lot as a person, but you know we don’t share certain beliefs on figures like Watts and Mckenna yet I’ve never disrespected you on account of this. Really, what you’re doing here is not to offer psychological advice but preach your particular brand of spirituality. Let’s agree to disagree.

Feeling depressed sometimes too, but don’t want to die and feel like I suffer a lot.

What does this mean?

Basically that the world is as meaningless to me as my views are to the world.

Ha my views are of great meaning
It’s just everyone has their heads up
Their or someone’s tookus
To realize it
So thus
I will create my own world
Full of meaning
Wether I’ll cut the nose off any who
Poke themselves in remains unseen
Perhaps like incontinence
Depends

I had this strange thing with thinking of killing myself with a knife. Though I was not depressed or anything. I have scza. Went straight to a hospital, my family got really scared. On the right meds all the thoughts were gone.

I’ve often toyed with a large kitchen knife I particularly like. What does it take for a person to stab themselves? Incredibly it does happen. Yukio Mishima is perhaps the most notorious case from the previous century.

I was definitely not afraid rather drawn to such objects like a magnet. I was simply very curious what would happen if. Thank God I was stopped.

This sounds like suicidal ideation, not a death wish.

People who have a death wish purposefully put themselves in direct danger, thinking it might bring about their death. They don’t just sit around daydreaming about it, that’s ideation.

@fractaled You might be right. I probably have both, partly due to the fact that I already made up my mind long ago not to kill myself, so all I’ve got left are idle fantasies.

It’s a fantasy of mine too.

I won’t commit suicide either, but I’m often daydreaming about my own death. It’s exciting to me. Nothing scary about it. It’s almost like getting butterflies in my stomach.

If I’ve ever made you feel like I was calling you a name I’m sorry. You deserve a loving, nurturing place where you can express your hopes, dreams and fears just like the rest of us (within the confines of the forum guidelines). It made me sad and ashamed that you felt it necessary to call me out when you wrote this thread as if I was someone who would jump to the wrong conclusion and beat up on you. If I’m being honest I have to admit your earlier constant attention seeking threads about denying that you were sz got on my nerves and it probably came out in any responses I wrote to you. For that I’m sorry. And your posts were no more annoying that my constant mundane “this is what I’m doing today” posts. I was in the wrong to judge you in any way, and should have been supportive always, after all this is a support forum. I will do better.

@leafy Thank you.

PS. I promise no more threads about whether I’m sz or not. I’m not and that’s my last word about it. :wink:

Be sz, don’t be sz, it’s fine. I’ve got a whole set of problems in my back yard that make me think twice before wanting to judge your yard
