You are not alone.

Most of us suffer in one form or another, but suffering leads to perseverance and perseverance leads to character.  Longsuffering is also a fruit of the Spirit and you have received it by the grace of God.  You are not alone in suffering.  So says scripture:
Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble (Job 14:1 KJV).  But even the best of these years are filled with pain and trouble; soon they disappear, and we are gone."  (Psalms 90:10 NLT).  "If you love me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counsellor to be with you forever - the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you." (John 14:15-17 NIV). 

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:  but rejoice inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings;  that when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy."  (1 Peter 3:12-13).

You are not alone.  God sees, hears, and forgives you.  Often our problem is not with God forgiving us, but in us forgiving ourselves.  God has forgiven us long ago, but we still carry the guilt.  Life is not futile, it is full.  It's just that everything in life is not pleasant.  Don't give up because you think no one cares, there are people who really cares for you.  Maybe you feel that you are alone.  If only you could see the angels that surround you.  If only you knew the things that you have been kept from.  If only you knew the disasters you have been protected against.  Each breath that you take is a gift.  Even when it is hard to breathe, you are still surrounded by love. 

You are not alone.  Know this.
