Sorry for the late night post but I'm gonna come clean to you guys

The reason I can be really quirky and shit sometimes is because I need things in my life to keep me busy and entertained so I don't start thinking about depressing shit like how nothing anyone does really matters in the long run, or that one day my family just won't be there anymore.

I need to occupy myself with anything I can be it video games or RPs or whatever else I do so I don't end up falling further into whatever sort of depression I've got.

It's just that all the big things terrify me sometimes...

Read Stoic and Platonic philosophy. I deal with that stuff too, but Seneca, Plato, and Socrates have helped a lot. The most I can say is that the future doesn't exist because we have free will, therefore the future is irrelevant. Focus on the here and now, because you are here now. Certain things come our way because Fortune simply says so, therefore what does it matter to us? Living is what's important, and the sole thing that matters is life. Hope that at least gets you started.

Trust me, start with seneca. It's all practical application. Ways to improve your life. There's also epicurus. Plato and Socrates, they're the big question guys. What is justice, for example. There's the Timaeus, Phaedo, Crito, and Republic. For plugin's sake, I also recommend the Tao Te Ching, since that was the jumping point for me. It's a very thought provoking book, where the answers don't come to you, they come from you. It is meant to provide the way to the answers.
