He's pompous, empty garbage. If you want to read original German misery, read Lenz by Georg Büchner.

NIGGERS DON'T DO IT. I suffered from depression and anxiety all my life. Medicated for it. Now just because this worked for me doesn't mean it will work for you BUT when I found out my wife was pregnant my life actually changed. During my 20s life seemed kind of boring and pointless. But after we had our son I started loving for something else. It gave my life a purpose. Now when I eat healthy or go for a run (this might sound crazy) its for him. So I can live longer and be in hos life longer. The books I read are for him. So I can tell him a story or pass on knowledge. Life is a lot longer than it seems. Just don't kys niggers.

Haha it's not all I live for. But most things I do these days have my son in mind. We started printing out pictures and stuff. It changes a lot. I'd be very sad. Why don't you ask your parents what they would do if you died?

I am twenty seven. I've spent the last decade wanting to write. I am a coward and I became a lawyer instead. I'm too afraid to quit because of familiar pressure, too afraid not to write because every day the tremendous pit in my stomach grows deeper. Somebody please help me before I jump off the ledge.

The ethical life is only one sphere above the aesthetic. Living for someone else is eventually unfulfilling. Take the leap of faith.

Lower your standards or make yourself more attractive. Learn that rejection is part of a fulfilling life.

This, at least for the stoics. Marcus Aurelius' Meditations is great for this. And do serious weightlifting (bench, deadlift, squat, log, supplemental lifts, and even strongman event stuff). MMA is awesome too.
