I Am Bored With Life and Unfullfilled

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,786 People

    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...

    Keep Crashing In The Same Car....

    Wasn't it Freud who said 'the definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result'? So, by Siggy's lore,I may well be certifiable...  I posted here a little while ago, and found it really cathartic and helpful (thanks again to...

    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 bored all the time.

    My life just feels so mundane. Background: I used to live a very busy and fulfilling life. I was a student in university, I worked two jobs, and was captain of my dance team. I had, still have, great friends, and my family was very important to me. Lately: I feel unfulfilled...

    Have It All...still Unhappy

    Life, Life, Unending Life.

    In my 20's. Nothing has any appealing aspect to it whatsoever. I've been engaged, I've travelled around a fair bit of the world, I've tried hedonism. And it awoke nothing in me, except boredom. I see everything dangling in senseless articulation. I have no desires left, I don't...

    Where Did It All Go Wrong?

    I'm living the life I always thought I wanted, but somehow, now it feels so empty. I'm 28 years old, and own my own business for the last 5 years or so. I left a job that I hated to start my business, and had very minimal expectations. I had no money, in fact I was in debt when I...

    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 :)

    Not Depressed...just Unsatisfied

    So I'm not exactly 'depressed' anymore, but I still live life like it's worth a dollar twenty-five. I had a period where I was REALLY depressed, mostly because I had fallen victim to the syndrome of 'you're not anybody if you're not rich/famous', but luckily that's over with...

    Completely and utterly devoid of purpose,

    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...
