There have been a few discussions on here recently about the risk of becoming nihilistic through Buddhist philosophy. We’ve mostly agreed that nihilism was far from the message of the Buddha.
My problem is, when I get depressed, the nihilistic approach is all I can see. I go to the wisdom that usually inspires and encourages me when I’m feeling well, and it leaves me feeling empty, not in the good, interdependent way. In the hollow, everything-is-pointless way.
Life is suffering —> why continue?
So my question is how to avoid or correct this. Anyone have the same issue?
If it helps to know, I originally came to Buddhism because of depression a couple of years ago.
