    People tell me to stay busy

    so I won't feel as bored. But that nvr works. At the end of the day, I feel just as unfulfilled as the beginning of the day.

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)

    Ever since this girl first walked into our

    I'm having a hard time explaining how I feel.

    The closest that I can come to it is ennui. I need a change and purpose to feel fulfilling. I fantasize about just packing my bags and leaving my husband to travel the world. I've stopped feeling sorry for myself and wallowing in my dissatisfaction. I am doing something...

    It seems like I have nothing to do on life.

    No reason for my living. I have nothing to be excited for. It feels like I am waiting for something but don't have any idea for what. Anybody else that feels this way?

    I feel that nothing has any meaning, nor do I find any value in my own existence. I find it difficult to care about anything that happens to me or around me, difficult to get up, even difficult to move at times as I feel like I am so weighed down that my body feels weak. Talking...

    Life Is Boring

    I grew up on a farm and there was never a boring moment. There was always something to do in the farming district. There were tools to mend, or chores to do; on hot, sunny, summer days, there was fishing in the creek that ran through our property. The neighbors had a dairy farm...
