I Am Wasting My Life Away

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,824 People

    Lately I've been dealing with laziness

    and no inspiration in my life. I feel lost like I have no drive at all to do anything, even the simple things. I just wanna give up on life. You know it's bad when you can't do what you love anymore.

    Life'S Suffering.

    Not being able to understand our suffering is the worst kind of suffering there is. It is far worse than physical pain.And the reason why we don't understand our suffering, is often because we don't know what we are living for in the first place.

    Coming To Terms

    This single thought has plagued my mind for so many years now.And to it I say: so what.I am tired of all the expectations, of what I "should have been", or what I might have been. It's depressing and keeping me in a steel cage of sadness.I am here and now. I live and breathe...

    I feel stuck in my life.

    I spend too much alone because I'm depressed and too self conscious to try new things. I am attending school to change careers but besides that and work I don't do much of anything else. I'm much more comfortable spending time at home alone with my two cats. The kicker is I'm...

    The pain of social isolation, of separateness and disharmony, that's how my life has been since I was 10. Sometimes I think that nobody knows what its like to be in mental and spiritual pain for such a long time, but you would be in pain too if you had my early life experiences...
