    There is no thrill (or even awareness) in joy without it. Yet, it
    is a gargantuan effort to carry it on one's shoulders. It consumes
    your life at a faster pace than the inevitable road to death which
    the mere act of existence is in itself.

    So, how do you deal with it? I have compiled a short list of the
    methods I have tried so far, in my not-so-short life, and the
    outcome I have observed.

    1 Substance abuse. Whether we're talking about a bottle of
    tasty Bushmills™, a blunt or a line, I believe this is the most common
    method for everybody. It numbs your senses and, by momentarily
    escaping the harshness of reality, it becomes psychologically addictive.
    It is also really expensive in the long run and, as inevitable as death
    is, truth is at least you don't want to be a vegetable from the age of
    40 something. Finally, it's an evident soul traffic jam in the oral phase
    (Freud dixit)


    2 Sex. Believe it or not, some of us turn into horn dogs not
    out of excessive libido or fixation on pleasure, but to fill voids which
    exist in oneself from times immemorial. Risk of STDs aside, there is not
    one single time I have humped someone when I feel tremendously empty
    afterwards... and it costs money to be paying taxis for all the shags one
    has, right? Freud would say one's stuck in the genital phase if this is
    your poison.


    3 Pain. Truth be told, today is kind of fashionable to cut oneself
    and post it on Instagram™ to whore attention from strangers and friends
    alike. Damn emos and hispters. But there was a time, before selfies and
    social media, when some found relief in self-inflicting acute pain so as to
    distant the senses from the existential woes. As said, it's so passé that
    if you still do it, you deserve to be punched in the face.


    4 Red Hot Pawn. Man, I mean it.

    So, what's your method? Even more important, when did you realize that
    you're meaningless and have no purpose whatsoever?

    Please, do share.

    There is no cure for sadness,but there are solutions for depression.

    Oh, that just reminded me of something! The apartment building
    where I live has a fenced inner yard with trees, flowers, and lovely
    grass, and at midnight (when nobody is looking) I take my dog there
    to have one last pee before hitting the sack.

    So 4 nights ago he started growling at something and when I looked
    there it was: a lovely baby hedgehog! I took my dog away and brought
    the hedgehog some nice dinner, a tray with water, and a little tennis
    ball to play.

    It's been 4 nights that I do the same, and the little spiky one seems to
    be fond of living there now 🙂

    Not really. Ask Robin Williams.

    There's nothing wrong with being sad - being depressed is something else and cannot always be cured.

    What do you mean? I've only been open and straightforward
    about my mushy, tender, soft and sweet nature!

    I would have said, after your OP here, that you are insensitive to your insensitivity. I would have, but I am sensitive to your underlying sensitivity.

    I lost the sensitivity on the tip of my tongue, from eating too
    much chili. Does that count?
