I dont remember the last time i had a good day i know its been years but im to the point where i know things will never get better because if they were they would have by now and cant keep trying to have faith, trying to make things better. Everytime i get my hopes up it just gets shot down. Im just not sure what to do anymore, i really dont know who to talk to about this in my life without feeling like im being judged. If anyone has any advice on a way to cope im all ears because my way is unhealthy and clearly not as affective as it once was

I know what it is like. You get overwhelmed and fail to see any good in your life. But, if you stop - and really look, and think about it - you should find that there is hope, there is purpose. Look for the positive things - Do you have a roof over your head, food on your table, friends? Things we often take for granted. It may seem like little things but when you focus only on the negative, that is all you will see - you won't see any positive change coming. I have been there - and am sort of there now. It gets hard to get out of bed in the morning when you don't feel like you have purpose. Or when things aren't going the way you want. But don't give up. Just look for small positive things. Enjoy nature. Find friends to spend time with - especially ones you can talk to about what you are going through. Don't keep it bottled up. This only makes things worse. And if you are a person of faith - pray and look for God's promises in His Word, the Bible. YOU WERE CREATED WITH A PURPOSE.

I don't remember the last time I had a "good day".
I have this friend, who sometimes asks me, "how was your day?". You'd think it's such a good thing, but she tries to force me to smile thru my pain. She doesnt care about the truth. All she wants me to say was that I had a good day.
I hate my life.

@Avasad Maybe what your friend is doing is trying to get you past the pain. To focus on something positive. When we are depressed it is hard to believe that there is anything positive. When we focus on the negatives we get more depressed.

I consider myself to a strong person and that is mostly for everyone else. What to do when everyone looks to you as the strong spiritual one. I too feel lost and without hope and I have found myself here. I am disappointed in God and confused by the direction my life is in after doing my best as a believer to do better. I find myself in a hopeless and faith losing state... me, the one everyone comes to for spiritual strength and guidance. I'm tired and I don't know what to do anymore. I feel abandoned.

@dlannan3821 what if I can't find anything to be positive about?? Sometimes I need someone to allow me to cry, let it all out, instead of smiling, which causes me to bury the pain, which I think is super unhealthy..
