    You are right in many ways, “all fo that doesnt mean shit”. Dear youngsters, he’s trying to pull you out and make you see what happens after you get to 30.

    I feel sad for the gay youth that commited suicide. I defintely contemplated suicide and tried it a few times when I was a teen. I can remember that I was never truly happpy or fulfilled in life or relationships until I was an adult and allowed to explore spirituality on my own. Spirituality actually saved me from depression. A few months ago actually I was told by my doctor that I was goign to be allowed to stop taking anti depressents. My life was really starting to turn around. And then out of nowhere I ha a psychotic break from the uncontrollabe stress in my life. I had not yet learned to deal with stress. I was in the mental hospital for 34 days recovering. During that time I was hearing voices and seeing things. Nothing like this ever happened to me before. I heard voices to kill myself a few times but I didn’t do it. The messed up thing is after all my hard work I no longer feel that deep connection with spirituality and I feel empty again. I am only 21 years old and my life pretty much sucks. It would be easier to kill myself but I am over the suicide thing. I believe in reincarnation and feel like I would come back to live another crappy lifetime. I support people like you that make these videos but truth is as bleak as it my sound they don’t work. Change and emotional recovery has to come from within and it’s hard work.

    Well I am now going back and re reading all the books that helped me on my spiritual journey. I am also trying to incorporate meditation into my life. Haven’t got to the point of what is working yet. But yes I am trying at least.
