Default I feel so sick

I want to get out of here, throw the computer away and crash the iTouch against the floor, leave the home, the school and my family with a few money and buy a ticket to nowhere , to never come back.

Surprisingly I'm still here, feeling this sickness all over my body.

I don't know, everything has turned so empty these days. My home is now just a mass of bricks and concrete where to hide, screens are a cheap excuse to stay sat down on a comfy chair and watch the day pass by, and nothing or nobody around me seems to understand this except the forums people.

So sick I want to literally vomit.

Just because you can't understand the way he feels , or better said , just because he isn't as comfortable with living in a concrete jungle without soul gives you the right to judge over his mental stability , to want him sent to a psychiatric ?

You actually stop where people should start thinking , you should try to understand him , he's obviously not satisfied as much as maybe you are aswell with sitting in front of a screen inside the 4 walls surrounding him and in a world that does not let people be the way they want to be .

Maybe you are the one , who should seek some psychiatric service ?



And Yerkes , I honestly understand how you feel , I myself have thought alot about the world I live in , and it certainly can't give me what I desire , after some time , even the screens get boring and substanceless , day by day passes by without any progress , in fact you take a step back with each day that passes living that way .

I have come to the point where I realized that you probably can't change it , since it has been the way it is forever , mankind is walking a road that will eventually end up in a dead end , so what is left to do ?

Well , the only thing you can do , at least what I want to do, is to simply try to find things that fill the void that is my hunger , and to be able to do that , you first have to clear your mind and become free from all the things that drag you down , and only if you are free you can start finding your peace and actually start living .

I know for certain that I won't end up in an apartment for the rest of my life having nothing that gives me any sense , so even if it's hard it's still worth it , life is a chain of choices , in the end you are the one who makes them , so my advide would be to do whatever you desire and to reach out for it , that's what I will do and I know that I will find more fulfillment in my life than most of the people ever will .

What is sad is that the world is encaged with structures. There is no denying in that humans have dominated the planet, we have come to accept this truth and we now try to move on without too much of a permanent footprint. Your feelings right now Zenit, are completely understandable but yet I cannot fathom such a deep feeling, all I can do is imagine. This world is what it is because of civilization, it has made our lives much more simpler than it needs to be, but without the ease, relaxation, and security that society brings to us human beings, like for example: Where would we be able to get the ability to think for constant hours without disturbance? is one of almost an infinite list of benefits that society has brought to us. The face of society (services, promotion of greed, and structures structures STRUCTURES!) has left a very ugly mark onto this world, and has made such a large permanent footprint that time (existence) itself will have a struggle erasing it from time's passage. This prison, sir, we call society is what should motivate our imaginations!! Here is why:

We cannot change to what it was like before civilization. We have permanently damaged our oceans, the rich biodiversity of life (both of plants and animals), and our atmosphere. These changes will limit the numbers of our species and will most likely be the end of it (we'll suffer from our own mistakes, many animals and species suffered massive death rates and even gone extinct because of the toxins and dangers we made when were 'civilized'). This is a grim reality that we will face, but who says we need to live it? The best thing we can do now is imagine ourselves as persons who respect the earth in every sense possible, perhaps we can imagine a whole lot more than that to make our minds at ease. For instance, have you ever thought that this world could be a Pandora? With the interconnectivity in all life, etc.? Why not write or draw something similar or that exactly to ease the suppressed mind?! Anything you can imagine can be made as a craft of relief. Living in a fantasy (AKA: your own) world is better than living in this world, anyone else who thinks otherwise most likely enjoys their current life too much to think about their own world or are just very used to controlling everything in their lives that thinking about fantasy is a waste of time to them.

Please find peace. Once you find it, you will fly; the way your meant to.

Zenit, a mi tambien me pasó lo mismo por un tiempo, pero la motivación que tuve para dejar de sentirme asi fue hablar con mis mejores amigos y contarles de mi problema, eso es lo mejor que puedes hacer con tus amigos puedes encontrar una solución, y no solo una sino varias, buena suerte y espero que te sientas mejor pronto

Zenit, that also happened to me time ago, but the motivation i had to stop feeling like that was talkin to my best friends and tell them about my problem, i think that's the better u can do with your friends you may find a solution, sometimes not one, more than one, good luck and i hope you feel better soon

Don't get rid of the life you have right now. That doesn't go over well too often. Just change it a bit at a time. Throwing away everything isn't the way to solve problems. Always think things through before you do them, a lesson I learned the hard way. This isn't a sickness it's a thought process. We all have them and they screw with us a lot. So just think about what you really want to do. Thats all I have to say.

Being impulsive and making rash decisions is never the way to go.

And you know what, SHATNER is right.
I'm in a therapy as well, because MY problems startet exactly like that and ended up in the wish to die. You can change the way you're feeling and with help it's easier.

Sitting there and saying "that's how the world is, you have to deal with that" is just stupidity and close minded thinking without ANY ability to reflect yourself and the things, that are happening right now.

I don't understand how any of this makes anyone feel so bad. The movie, the forums, any of it. Call me ignorant but that all seems so stupid. If anything this makes you (or at least me) feel so alive and wonderful. And sometimes I think I'm the only one that feels this way about all this. Thinking negative is never the way you should think BE HAPPY for eywa's sake.

Please, guys and gals. This is a very sensitive issue. We have enough trouble with people who do not understand Avatar as we do, we shouldn't cause problems between ourselves. Everyone is an individual, unique, and so will be affected by the movie in different ways, we cannot judge which way is the correct way to be affected

I know, I came to the forums because the movie really went with my personal beliefs and having a reverence for nature. I'm not spending my time wanting to be on Pandora, I'm thinking about making my world more like theirs. But, to each their own, right?

Wait, what's wrong with not wanting a life of 9-5 jobs, 4 walls, stock markets, and screens? That's not what I want! Hell no! That way of life is bulls*** to me! Who would choose to confine their life like that, when there is so much to experience?! Heck, a life on the road in a VW microbus isn't actually looking half-bad right now. I'd be houseless, but not homeless; I'd have a 7900 mile diameter home.

I'm not just going to live my life in this conveyer-belt society of ours. I'm going to pave my own way. It might not always be easy, but it will be a lot more fulfilling in the end.

Hawaii is just as industrialized and infested with consumerism as the rest of the country. You want to get away? Visit an undeveloped third world country.

Sacred Tsahaylu is right, this is a sensitive issue. Let's be understanding.

I cannot say I have felt as bad as you have to the point where I feel like I'm going to throw up, but I have definentley felt the emotions you feel. Right now I'm going to a college doing what I love so I can get a job doing what I love; working on cars. But thats not to say I don't feel like I'm following billions of americans down the same wide road dressed like everyone else. I think to myself, "I don't want to be associated like this world, I am different." This systems got us all under their thumb, and I don't find it very fair, but that points always brought up... "Life's not fair" yada yada yada, I hear that all the time. Same routine every day, same walls, same people... (luckily at school I enjoy it, work not so much). I too somedays think about how it would be like to be away from this world, live wherever. And of course I always think about how living on Pandora would be 100,000+% better than here on Earth. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. No one said life would be easy, but no one said you can't enjoy life. Find something you like/love to do... a hobby or something. See if you could make a profession out of it. Keep your head up, be careful out there, and remember you've always got us. How did this make you feel? Any better? Worse? The same? I'd love to help as much as I could

This is kinda where I go off tangent. I'd be willing to work within the confines of society if I find a career that will truly make me happy. There is only one - airline pilot, which I am working toward. Though at the same time I realize that the industry is pretty much in shambles right now, and I might not be able to find a seat in a c0ckpit (censored? Really?). If that is indeed the case, I'm not planning on "settling" on a lesser career, and finding a hobby to pacify myself. If I have to go off the path to find happiness/fulfillment, then I am not afraid (which is where the VW minibus comes in).

Good luck on your automotive career. It sounds like you get the same enjoyment out of that that I get out of flying.

We all feel society's thumb, but I'm not afraid to smash said thumb with a hammer. Yeah, I'm strong willed, I know.
