In what ways do you feel your life is over with? Forget feelings for a moment. What exactly , ob
Because your whole life so far has been about getting through school, and eventually getting a job, not that that is done, your life IS over. Now you need to start a new one, preferably starting from where your last one ended.
Everything Distilled said is right, except for one thing: Mr Winston*
You just need to figure out a new long term goal, be that fun, or family, or career or something else.
Afraid to grow up and leave home.
I feel the same, Everything seems pointless now .
I feel the same sometimes. Im 22 :/
It happens. You don't know what the future holds till you get there
Been there my whole life man. I truly understand. You are young and still can do something with your life, but feeling like this will keep you down and you won't accomplish what you are capable of.
You have to learn to control them....or at least ignore them. At least until you are alone and can deal with them on your own time. Mine definitely control, and are a major part of my life, but I have many ways to deal with them. Most people don't consider my ways good ways, but hey, it works for me.
I don't control mine exactly. I can deal with them long enough to do what needs to be done. Then when I get home I deal with them in my own ways. Sometimes I just take meds and go to sleep, or watch movies until I sleep. Sometimes I get on EP all night long. But my favorite thing to do is cut (which I don't recommend). Sometimes I just drink profuse amounts of alcohol and cry all night long. But in the end you must realize that they are only feelings and that they will pass..........eventually.
I know they are not. But I have been dealing with this for 28 years now or so. I am still here. I have learned to just realize that I am going to feel them, but while I am feeling them, I can work or whatever. I feel like crap, and my day will suck, but I keep in mind that when I get home at night I can deal with it then. And yes, most of the time I think of cutting and start to look forward to it, but hey, it gets me through the day. You said it right though. You just have to go through the motions. You can't control how you feel. Some people say they can, but I think they are just lying to theirselves. Just have your coping mechanism in the back of your mind and foscus on doing that as soon as you get home. Idk. I have been dealing with this for a long time and still don't have the answers. I am just telling you what I do. I hope that you feel better soon. :-)
At 20, world ahead can both exciting and terrifying. You have a real chance to prove how good you can be.
There's lots of answers to this... but I just want to single out one for this answer... are you getting enough sleep? That will affect you a lot more than you know.
You'll feel a lot better about yourself on a full night's sleep.
Well it's not a cureall, but it will probably make it worse if you don't. You can still get germs even if you diligently wash your hands, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't wash your hands. Right?
So... listen to your feeling or what's correct?
