Is This It?

After a long military career I find myself in a fruitless existance. Making money to pay for a house to sit in and do nothing. I have no friends, my familly make me angry and my work is dull. What do I do now? Iam over 50, living in a dream and hating myself for it. I don't know which way to turn, and please don't talk to me about christ, budda or any of the other god bothering BS. I don't even know what I am doing this for..............

Get off your butt and start trying things you are interested in.Keep trying it. Maybe you should be feeling like this for now. It can be the motivator to start looking at things in your life that has been long neglected or put on hold becase of your career.Daydream of things you'd like to do if you could. If it really isnt some things that you can do now, try later and focus on the things you can. If you are used to not doing these things you'll have to put the effort in to get going. Maybe you are exactly where you are supposed to be. Now that your career no longer keeps you distracted from your other needs that had been pushed to the side and not acknowledged for so long has come to the surface and it's bothering you,GOOD. Now you see it. Now you can do something about it.Good luck!!

Just another thought. I think it is imortant to do something you are good at. The girl who is involved in teaching just do something you think you might be good at. It may be a sport or something you feel you might be better than someone else at. This will make you feel great. Give yourself some self esteem. Make you feel better in yourself. Ask the person who you are better than out for a drink or something. Just an idea.

Well you say you have no friends. I guess this is more common than people believe. My brother had been in the army until he retired and that sounds like you. I started taking him to the local football matches and later he discovered he travel on away matches with other supportes and suddenly he had something in common with other civilians. Try going to your local town football game and i bet it starts changing. You dont even need to be that interested in football but it is a good way of meeting people and you have a common interest.

Hello. Im a pretty 29 year old girl who is working as a teacher (in which i dont love doing) and getting my masters in it in a month. However the nyc public school system is ******....I live in a nice apt. in NY. I pay all the bills b/c my b/f messed his life up and now he cant get a decent job. and All i do is work and I have no money or a life. I know that life is precious but. I often contemplate death.... the only time i have any fun is when im drunk and listening to southern soul music. wtf is wrong with me? ? ? Is this what most people's lives are like? I want to live not exsist.

Write about it. Journal it. Maybe you'll see your way to the next thing to do.
