Anyone else ever think this way?

Sometimes I'll be going through some stress or emotional turbulence or just the ups-and-downs of life and I'll suddenly remember that, in the grand scheme of things, I make no difference, so my problems are unimportant.

Doesn't make me feel any better though honestly. I feel like I want to talk to someone about it but the thread title keeps me from ever doing it.

You guys probably don't care either. Fuck it.

Smokin' too much weed, man.


And certainly a thread title shouldn't stop you from talking about a problem you have.

I haven't smoked weed in about eight months. I felt better about life when I smoked weed.

And I'm referring to the idea more so than the actual title itself.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Like, if I've got a problem or something I want to talk about, I always end up saying that there's always something worse and no one really gives a shit in comparison.

It won't necessarily make me feel better, but it's a sort of comfort to know that my life is not going to be miserable forever because of whatever I'm currently going through. Like you said, in the grand scheme of things, you're not going to remember all that shitty stuff going on, but more so how all those negatives made you a better person.

I feel like a melodramatic dick when I talk about my problems to anyone, so I just push it all to the back and hope for better days.

I get something similar. When in one moment I realise nothing matters, at all. We are nothing. We cannot logically exist but we do. There is no rational explanation. We CAN'T exist. Nothing we do will make any difference because it doesn't make sense.

When I get frustrated and irritated and things just seem to be out of whack I invariably stumble across somebody or something that reminds me that it could be so much worse.

Your problems matter as much as anyone elses. Just think about those less fortunate and they may seem not so bad.

TS, that's my way of thinking, and I suppose it differs for everyone, but to me it's a comfort.

If I'm having problems or feeling stressed, it's great knowing that, actually, none of it is important (to me), because in my head that equates to there being no use worrying about it. Obviously I'll generally have the motivation to sort out the problems, but it relieves most of the stress and worry involved.

As for talking to other people about problems/stress... well I'm not one to give much of an opinion. I don't unload my problems on others, and I hate it when they do so to me.

Yeah, but also the fact that whenever someone complains about anything I instantly judge them for it prevents me from ever speaking about my problems. This means that on some days I'll just suddenly feel incredibly depressed by realising all the various problems I want to talk about whereas other days I forget everything bad previous completely, which means that often I can't remember peoples names etc because I associate them with this worse time.

I think I'm more open about my problem that prevents me talking about real problems moreso than the aforementioned real problems

That's kinda what I mean.

No one cares about my problems. I mean, let's be honest, no one really likes listening to the problems of anyone else.

I feel like I need to release some of this but I know that no one really cares, which is worse than the problems themselves. I don't want to be seen as a melodramatic loser by posting the way I feel on some social networking site or blogging about it or opening up to my friends.

I feel like pulling out my own hair and setting myself on fire sometimes but I know that nobody cares, so I pent it up. I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place; there's no viable means by which I can relieve the stress, which creates more stress, which I can't relieve, so I end up saying "Fuck it" and bottling it all endlessly.

Maybe I'm just an angsty retarded teenager who doesn't really understand anything or have any concept of hardship. I guess that's it. I'm a stupid melodramatic fool. Everyone please hate me now.

Well, it's all about how you cope with relieving that stress. Some people find a non-social way (I personally relieve all my stress with video games), which also works if you feel uncomfortable talking to others, or like others don't want to listen. There are people I know that use non-healthy methods though, such as drinking way too much, and that's never a road to go down.

Then there are those who are willing to listen, and get enjoyment out of helping others with their problems, or just talking with them about how they feel. As others have said, UG has the Hugging Thread for that.

It's all about finding a way of relieving that stress, and if you haven't found one yet, then don't worry. Most of the people I know haven't (hence my earlier comment of "I hate people unloading stuff onto me").

This is my train of thought a lot of the time - if I have stress, I just put it down to being a teenager. The way I look at it, if I think I'll look back in ten years and wonder what the hell I was so worked up about, it's not worth worrying about.

Melodrama comes with being a teenager (although I try to suppress my melodrama using the aforementioned ten-year method), so nobody's going to hate you for it.

Alternately, find someone you trust, tell them you need to talk to someone, and get talking. I don't like to unload my problems on anyone. I like to keep it nice and safe buried somewhere where I won't find it too easily. That said, that's a bad thing, IMO. Bad thoughts an investment, if you will. They don't seem like a whole lot at first, but the nasty ones grow fast and make your entire outlook a lot bleaker.

Talking helps people. Don't post it online. Don't talk on the phone. Don't text. Sit down, look someone in the eye, and talk. It's tough to start with. I'd even say that it's almost physically hurt me to talk to someone. I always end up crying (which I hate to do) and it leaves me emotionally drained. However, I'd say that telling someone you have issues and having them tell you that they're there for you is the best treatment for teenage angst.

And for the love of God, do not write bad poetry. Someone will find it and they will think it sucks. That or they'll decide you need to see a shrink. That's not entirely bad in itself, but all a shrink will do is tell you externalize (see above) or give you a prescription for pills that will leave you completely apathetic. Also, they'll charge you in either event.
