Yes and I'm tired of being showing tenacity or resilience or strength of whatever feel-good word and not having it bear a single fruit.

In some ways, yes. I guess to an extent- everyone on here is still alive despite wanting to be dead- so- maybe we're all resilient to an extent. I've had ideation for 33 years to varying degrees.

I also have the habit of taking on very difficult work things to do. They certainly require resilience to finish- although, it's stupidity that leads me into these situations time and time again.

That said, I probably purposely don't challenge myself socially. Especially not now. So- I deliberately try to avoid situations which I will need the most resilience to survive. How about you?

If there is purpose then I can be very resilient also with a very high level of energy. If it's prolonged thing
and there is no significant improvement I get frustrated.

Currently I'm the horse without the stick and carrot so instead of moving forward I stand still and thinking about
dying.

Absolutely not, I could certainly never be meant for existing at all, I very easily get tired of this futile and meaningless process of slowly dying. There is no value to suffering endlessly but of course I continue to stay here as one has no choice if they don't find a way to free themselves.

I would usually say hell no, but then I often wonder how someone else would've coped in my shoes. I always say "anyone else would've killed themselves years ago if they had to be me" but it's hard to get perspective on something like that.

I used to be, trauma and abuse chipped away at my resilience over the years growing up and I became progressively colder and numb to the idea of being alive. At 23 I feel completely empty and hollow inside after spending my developing years just trying to survive.

I think it's true that people on this forum are a lot stronger than the so-called normal people.

Me too. Abused from age 6. I guess we just gradually shut down. Our brains go into some kind of standby mode to protect themselves.

No, I think I'm rather weak in this regard. I think that most of the population, if they saw the world through my eyes, would not be as suicidal as I am. But I guess the mental pain tolerance is different for everybody and I feel like I've reached my limit. I just can't take it anymore

There are limits for everhthing. Even for being resilient. There id a fine line there cause sometimes resilient can be something else such as a person unable to accept their destiny or their own fear. Some people are strong and they hold . But others mask it by living in a bubble in full denial of the world collapsing to their feet

Very, but I'm reaching my limit. A person only has so much fuel to live with a chronic illness before it takes them fully out. Its been a rough 6 months and probably won't live to see my next birthday. Oh well.
