I've seen these type of questions here very often since I've joined the site like 2-3 year ago.
I don't understand why people don't appreciate their lives.
What are your views on that?
And how would you answer to them?

I think some people on here really do have a problem. But some also, especially teens, live in their own little worlds, and when you only focus on your own problems, then your problems would appear larger than they are. A friend of mine got this lump removed out of her foot and she was so sad about how the scar damaged her feminine smooth skin, and talked about it every week. Meanwhile other people have much bigger scars on their chests and faces...
I don't think those people are seeking attentions by asking those questions. I think they genuinely think their lives suck and pointless and don't have the drive or energy to live it anymore (I am one of those people, I still sometimes feel that way, despite being on therapy). Some might be too drowned in their own thoughts, some might actually have REAL problems and their lives really suck.
Either way, you don't understand why people don't appreciate their lives because you've never been in a position so low or feel like you're such a failure that it would be better if you just don't exist anymore. You've never felt like you shouldn't have been born, that you're a mistake.
My mom got pregnant with me out of wedlock, she married my dad because I was already conceived, people were mean to her, judged her, her life totally changed. My parents are still together now, but I can't help but think in my subconscious how I wasn't planned, how I wasn't wanted in the first place, and how much misery my presence in my mother's belly has caused her. That and the high expectations she had for me, and my inability to fulfill it, made me just want to quit. I feel like such a disappointment and a waste of space on earth sometimes.
It's hard to appreciate your life if you don't have much to live for. If there's not much happiness and love in your life (the 2 things people usually hang on to and strive for in life and makes every problem bearable), then life would consist only of tasks and hard work. We then get exhausted.2
