Yep, you can be rich and have a great job, but if you don't have any friends or significant other, being rich can be meaningless. Humans have a deep desire for human connection, without it, we can be empty.

I'm going through the exact same thing, except I'm nowhere near successful.
Sometimes I feel so...disconnected. Like I'm just watching the world but I have no part in it.

I could build a nest in the frost and fire
While the sun is flaming on the ice
And slowly start unravelling this broken soul
Itís time this time, and I can feel a new light

But still I got miles to go before I sleep
Still got miles to go before all is revealed
I still got miles to go before I sleep
Still listening to the chainless wind sing

maybe you should question life and the real existence... because these are all material things that many people are robotically captivated by, its good you are not into that.. Maybe go on holiday, or find a new hobby.. i find doing something for someone makes me happy, being active... or having a goal in life to reach.

something to do, something to love and something to hope for = contentment.

or maybe love is what you need..

I just have one question, are you looking forward to anything?

I do have another question: How did you succeed in school?

I have no advice because I feel the same way. I'm dating a wonderful guy finally after a string of unsuccessful attempts in dating and in relationships. I've received a scholarship and an internship. I'm a part of a school paper. All this for a girl who is super duper average.
For one, success makes me uncomfortable, I like being in the background most of the times.
Now, I'm still depressed and feel I'm lacking and I don't know why...

I have nothing that truly makes me happy anymore. Not my PS3 (I'll be selling it soon), not my music, not my academic successes...nothing. I feel like I can't take joy in anything in life, and I'm more and more being drawn to consume "soft drugs" in order to escape my misery.

I have no real friends to turn to; I sit at home on the weekends browsing the internet, and it gets so depressing once I become self-aware of how lacking my life is compared to my peers.

I'm at a very, very low point right now...hardly capable of finishing this post. So I'll get back to it later. For now, please, suggest something I could do...anything. I can't bear the stale, meaningless blandness of my life anymore. How can I find my calling?
Well I am Bi polar a lot of those feelings come from there and a ton is your environment. I feel the same way plus gaming is dying on consoles its coming back to pc and I would check out the program called steam works. It really is just an environment change even a small change can have a great affect. If your like me though dating is out of the question and going outside means you get arrested then stay home check out steam though. Sounds like a life change is needed and probably grew out of video games it happens once people stop dreaming and wishing. So create another goal and wish it may come back.

WE all must dream and wish to live longer....hmm thats sounds like being a kid lets all frolic!!! la la la!!

Hi,

I have found myself asking the same sort of questions...

I am going to be getting my papers, get a good job (im hoping SA will not hold me back) and be sucessful.

But right now, i have nothing i like to do. The only things i like to do, is drink and drug and that in the end will not help my situation. I am giving up drugs now, i am in addiction counselling and that is why i have come to realise my intrests faded whilst i was intrested in drinking and druggin'. That intrest has now become addiction...
- one piece of advice, please do not let that happen to you. It may help in the short term but from all my young years (and may i add i am still young) till where i am at now, it hasnt helped.

I dont really know what to say, i just wanted to say that i know that feeling.

Another thing tho i have come to realise is, intrests and hobbies do not just happen to find us...we must find them.

Ask yourself, what would you like to do? This will be the first step. I still am struggling with this step but will continue to struggle until i find something i like, something that i actully enjoy to do, something wich can occupy me for hours, something that i can be proud of, something that i can be silly about, something i will have forever, etc.
- like i said, i havnt found those things yet, but sometime i will. I dont want drink and drugs to be my intrest/hobbie. That as a hobbie, is no good...

...so dont go down that road

Take care

I'm not an actual doctor, but based on your analysis I would prescribe ...love.

Everyone can love, and I'm sure you will find interest there. It is human nature to love, and it's probably the one thing in the world that EVERYONE shares as a common interest.

Through love you can also find yourself maybe some of your hidden interests!

One thing I know, spending too much time around tech stuff like computers and games would make you feel useless sometimes. That's for me, anyway.

Most things have been said and may sound typical, but personally I have found them previously fulfilling myself. Try to go out and volunteer. Travel and get around nature more rather than stare at some stuff that humans created. Maybe from then you can find the things that can give you that meaningful or joyous feeling you are looking for, you never know. Go out and search for it, they're out there waiting for you.

I think eveyone goes through phases where they just get board of everything. The same thing happens to me ever know and then, I just seem to lose interest in everything. If I play a video game or watch a film Ill turn it of after 5 minutes. The best thing to do is maybe take up a new hobbie or activity. You could learn how to play an instrument or if you allready play one take up another one, its a very stastiying feelng learning to play something on a new instrument. Or take up some kind of physical activity, cycling, swimming or even just going for a walk every day. Anything really to just occupy your time.
