  • Nope. This one amazing, hard, joyful, heart breaking, exciting, incredible journey is all we've got. There are no pots of gold at the end of the rainbow, or, in this case streets paved with gold at the end of our lives.
    Sometimes things are incredibly hard, terrifying, or down right depressing- but all we've got is today, nothing is guaranteed. I definitely wouldn't want to lose today over something which may be gone tomorrow.

  • Well, I'd have to go with a "to each his own" kind of mentality on this... If someone is living the kind of life that makes them wish that 'the Lord would zap them out of here', then that's okay with me. I really have no problem with them getting that wish, if that's the kind of attitude they have about life.

    As for me, I believe that this one life is all we have... there's no afterlife, no reincarnation, no anything else once we're dead. So I'm doing my best to appreciate every minute I'm alive on this amazing, beautiful planet.

  • Nope. Life is amazing... the present moment is amazing! Whether it's good, bad, or indifferent, I am remarkably thankful to be here right now.

  • Nope.  Life is good and it's even better without blinders on.

  • NO! NO! NO! As far as I know....THIS is all we have! I am loving every new day and being grateful that I am still here on earth! I would much rather be here than in some kind of "Heaven" with Angels,etc. Is that corny and over rated or what? I don't even think there IS such a thing.
    If you have your health and friends and family---that is enough and it will make you happy. If you are not happy--YOU can change it!!! Just don't be ungrateful and please appreciate TODAY! Don't live for some kind of imaginary heaven ....it might not even be there!!!
    Try making others happy and forget about you.

  • OP---maybe you need to see your Doctor about this. Post partum depression?
    We have all had some terrible times,we get through it.Personally I think it is a huge mistake to feel this way . Its like throwing a gift back at the Lord.Your life is a gift.
    See your Doctor---my daughter had twins and felt so depressed she went to her Doctor. She gave her a prescription for Serafem--it turned her around and wihtin a few weeks she was happy again. There are other medications too, one that will suit you and your situation,I am sure.There is always an answer to problems such as these.
