From very early on my life has been tormented in a way that must be hard to match; this is how I have differed from the common run. But I have differed from the common run of sufferers in turn by its never having occurred to me that there might be help to seek or to find among men; no, suffering was my distinction.
The human being is spirit. But what is spirit? Spirit is the self. But what is the self? The self is a relation which relates to itself, or that in the relation which is its relating to itself. The self is not the relation but the relation's relating to itself. A human being is a synthesis of the infinite and the finite, of the temporal and eternal, of freedom and necessity. In short a synthesis. A synthesis is a relation between two terms. Looked at in this way a human being is not yet a self.
A. That Despair is the Sickness unto Death - The Sickness unto Death
A person can relate to GOD in the truest way only as an individual, for one always best acquires the conception of one's own worthlessness alone, it is well nigh impossible to convey this to another with proper clarity, and it would in any case easily become affection.
When in the graveyard one reads an inscription on a gravestone in which a man mourns his lost little daughter but finally breaks out in verse: Comfort thee, reason, she lives, singed Hilarius Master-Butcher -- there's much comedy here: first, in the context, the very name Hilarius has comic effect, then the worthy-sounding Master-Butcher, and finally the outburst: reason! One can imagine a professor of philosophy mistaking himself for reason, but a master-butcher would not imagine that.
Sympathetic egoism. Irony.
Hypochondriac egoism. Humor.

One 37 II A 626 - S. Kierkegaard.
Religious, spiritual, or abstract belief in a transcendent realm, being, or idea: a solution in which one believes in the existence of a reality that is beyond the Absurd, and, as such, has meaning. Kierkegaard stated that a belief in anything beyond the Absurd requires a non-rational but perhaps necessary religious acceptance in such an intangible and empirically unprovable thing (now commonly referred to as a "leap of faith"). However, Camus regarded this solution, and others, as "philosophical suicide".
Wikipedia - Absurdism
Why is it so? This misunderstanding - philosophical suicide - occurs because of having no experience of belief's state, which is not reachable for everyone. There could be also a misconception of goal of philosophy in human's life.
Lord! Give us weak eyes for things of no account (not importance), and eyes of full clarity in all truth.
The Sickness unto Death - S. Kierkegaard
Despair is a sickness of the spirit, of the self, and so can have three forms:
The sickness unto death - S. Kierkegaard.
Despair: hopelessness of doing a thing in order to improve worrying situation.
It is very important in life to know when your cue comes.
Important in Life 36 I A 279 - S. Kierkegaard.
... But this I thought was the meaning of life, that the individual shook off the habit of accepting the favours of difference, should that be tempting, steeled himself against its humiliation, should that weigh down on him, in order to find the universal, what is common to all human beings, to concern himself only with that. Oh! how beautiful to lose oneself in this way. But then I thought again that in the having of this concern the meaning of life was to be concerned for oneself as if the particular individual was all there was. Oh! how beautiful thus to find oneself in the universal! If the universal is the rule then the individual is the paradigm [corrected from: demand]; if the universal is the demand then the individual is the fulfillment; if the universal is everything, if the universal says everything, then the particular individual believes that the everything is said about him - him alone.
So if the place and context here did not require a signature, none would be needed, for again it is infinitely inconsequential who has said it (as though the favoured one said it, the one who was one said it, the one who was wronged being in no position to say it, since after all they all have it in them to do it.)
Is signature not required? 46 VII I B 200 - S. Kierkegaard.
Suffering from mental illness that almost comes from a strong desire to thinking, in order to more discovering, more exploring, more finding, and more fulfilling.
