      It's okay not caring about yourself, but you shouldn't put others at risk. I'm down right now too, so I'm trying to figure out how I can get out of this rut I'm in too... It's hard to fight, but it can be done. I hope that you can feel better too.

  • Fear, 8 years ago i worked in this crappy store carrying boxes, I didn't have the money to attend college back then, but now that I'm close to finishing college, I think always about that store, I know where I'll end up if I quit, I can't quit, I'd rather die than going back to a crappy job where I'm treated like an animal, so to answer your question, fear is what keeps me from quitting
    Not very inspiring, I'm sorry, but it's true

      It might not be fear for you, it's the desire to get a good job, that's what's motivating you to finish school.

  • My goal of becoming rich, well known, successful, and using all of my resources to help people in need.

  • Adamancy. Will, power, and pride. If I had it my way, I'd put a gun to my head. But, that would be just what my enemies want me to do. Purely out of stubborn hatred I go on. And maybe if I live long enough I'll indirectly pick up how to enjoy life again. For now, I'm just killing time, distracting myself and enjoying as many of the little things as I can.

    Maybe I'll pass my life by, but that's just fine with me. I still derive enjoyment in the simple things. That's what I learned after so many years of despondency. Fuck it. You're not going to get what you want. Enjoy what you have.

    The truth is, if you're still alive, you have a motivation to live. Whether it's simply fear of actually killing yourself or putting yourself in a dangerous situation or just your instinctual drive to live.

    In fact, throw those in, as well. I've been close to death more times than I can count, whether from overdosing or getting shot at. The last time terrified me beyond words. I felt a terror and agony so pure that it transcends the concept. Beyond the capacity of words. So, that instilled a deep fear in me of dying. I don't give a fuck about death. I see death as peace. But the pain of dying terrifies me. And everyone has an instinctual desire to survive. That's ingrained in our DNA. Ironically, some also have the death drive, instead of a sex drive. But, that doesn't get rid of the animalistic need for survival.

  • Money, it used to be winning over this girl who I had known all my life since I was young, I really liked her, girl was perfect and I saw myself getting along with her and being together yadayadayada, well it never worked out and I haven't met a woman who I am able to click with or am interested in fully the same way I was able to with her so now I have made my goal in life money and working all the time pretty much.
