Hey everyone I'm new to this forum but I seriously need help as school is reopening soon. I hate the way the world functions, like how education works, and I feel that many things I learn at school is useless. Many times I feel like  but I just can't do it. I really need help, I need someone to help me change my view of the world or else sooner or later I may do something stupid... What exactly is the problem with me? Other people can live normally without having such thoughts... I think of quitting school, but I don't want to disappoint my parents... I just hate the whole world...

Hi Depressed,

I had to edit your post as we are not allowed to talk about suicide on this forum.

There are many things in school that you don't think that you are going to need to know, but in the future you will see that it was important. It sounds like you don't like school, but believe me, in this world now, we need an education. It is so important to know things in order to survive.

I hope that you can see what I am saying. Learn as much as you can. It is a God given right for us and we need to take advantage of it.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen

Hey Depressed....I'd have to agree that I too hate the way the world works, hate the way the educational system is in that they do, at times, require people to take classes that are not needed. I have a direct, 100% personal history with this situation...so what I'll do is attempt to summarize my experience and explain my conclusions so that it may hopefully help.

I am 25 (B-day 3 days ago woot) and I have attended one single year of college. When I attended gradeschool, middle, and highschool I literally never received a "C" as a final grade for any class. I did these things without trying or caring, I just did it because I knew that these people required it of me. I hated every moment of school, I despise having to learn subjects that do not interest me in the least. I have to force myself, and even that is a half hearted attempt....but if I find something that is of interest, my brains like a snowball rolling down a slope...faster and faster and more and more momentum. As much as this is something that holds me back in some ways, it does the opposite for others.

When I did my first year in college I had a quite rude awakening. I could no longer float by on being able to find the solutions quickly and easily...there was a requirement of pages of shown work, hours and hours of study. These things were foreign to me for the most part because of the fact that I never needed to study or show any of my work in the past, the solution was all that was needed. I found myself becoming more and more upset at the fact that I was being forced to take classes that I hated, that meant literally nothing to me. Even with saying all that, Karen IS right, there are some classes that you will indeed end up using in your life that you do not see now...but certainly not all of them.

So I spent one year and then did not return for the second. I was thinking that I am not going to pay for classes that I can't sink my mind into...what's the point? I had gone to college because it was "the next step", everyone knows you go to college after highschool, get popped out of your cookie cutter and are launched into the business world. Well apparently that line of conformity was not suitable, because I was not able to handle it. So at this point in time I found myself where you are right now...upset...unsure....verging on panic.

At the present I am planning to go back to school for Psychology, Philosophy, and Counseling. I am going back because ---> I <--- was the one who chose to, because I wanted to, because I am interested in these subjects...NOT because I am supposed to, or I was told I should, or because I think I might make a buncha cash in this field no matter that I will be a miserable wretch my whole life. That is the key my friend...find what it is that interests you, calls to you, something that you can picture yourself successfully doing as your life continues, as you get older. Find something that gives you satisfaction, whether its personal gain, or helping others, or creating and fixing things with your hands. With me I found it was helping others, while even at the same time helping myself, using my gifts correctly...I've got to say it was quite a realization. There most certainly is something out there for you that will give YOU the personal want to push on, to accomplish what it is that you were put here to do. Have faith Depressed, He has a plan for us all, its our job to hold off until we find it. It was hard for me...but I am in the process of dealing with it, by no means am I past it, it is more about just going with the flow when needed and then pressing ahead full steam when you see what you want.

I'm not sure how old you are, but if you're nearing college, or in college, I think you should prioritize and try to look past the point you are at right now. Think about what kind of jobs you can get if you drop out of school, and if something sounds good to you, then it's your choice, not your parents'- even if they are disappointed. If you're in high school- please don't drop out, it'll end soon!

It's understandable that you don't like the system of society, because when you're depressed you think that no one understands you or judges you, and that makes you somewhat alienated from the "norm." I often times get these feelings as well, like I'm trapped in a world of education and none of it will mean anything at all, or even that I'm just wasting my life away when I could be experiencing the earth and its power. But you can't live freely without some form of education or career- our society, sadly, revolves around these things. When the negative thoughts come, try to sweep them away (the best you can!) and go outside, experience nature for a while, and don't bog yourself down with stress from school.

But I agree that someone to talk to would be great for you. You'd be able to get these fustrations out, and maybe even get medication. If what you have is biological, it's impossible for you to think past your thoughts about the world, even though it doesn't seem like it when you're thinking them! It'll be okay, I'll send some prayers and thoughts your way!

Hey, stop taking life so seriously! Sure, education is corrupt...so go ahead, waste all the time you need, that's what you are SUPPOSED to do; and you end up with a certificate that will earn you more money than if you didn't waste your time learning useless crap! What a wonderful system

You aren't nuts and what you are feeling shouldn't be discounted by anyone. You will have people in your life to tell you "get over it", "stop whining", "snap out of it". What you need to realize for yourself is that you don't have to feel this way. If you have depression, it isn't just that you are sad and you just can't get over it. You honestly have a medical disease, like cancer, heart disease, or diabetes; not just a mental problem. I grabbed this off of the WebMD website, it can explain it more succinctly than I can:
What is the link between serotonin and depression?
"There are many researchers who believe that an imbalance in serotonin levels may influence mood in a way that leads to depression. Possible problems include low brain cell production of serotonin, a lack of receptor sites able to receive the serotonin that is made, inability of serotonin to reach the receptor sites, or a shortage in tryptophan, the chemical from which serotonin is made. If any of these biochemical glitches occur, researchers believe it can lead to depression, as well as obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, panic, and even excess anger."

My point is, you can't cure yourself or snap yourself out of your depressed state. If your body isn't producing the hormones it needs to to regulate your mood. If you haven't already, go to a doctor. If you are being treated by a doctor with a medication it may not be an effective dosage or the right type of antidepressant, there are several classes that have different effects in the brain.
Someone who doesn't suffer from this disease can't possibly know the hopelessness and helplessness you feel and why you can't just get over it. Some doctors don't even get it, which is why you need to find one that is educated in dealing with this disease. You aren't alone even though it feels like it right now. When you get the depression under control everything else stops being so hard, especially school. If you need someone to talk to HealingWell is a great forum, and people here truly want to help.
