Without A Clue

I have NEVER known what to do about my future. At school you'd always be asked "what do you want to be when you grow up?" My answer was always "I don't know." Unfortunately I'm now almost 39 and still none the wiser. Experience has proved countless times that making plans is futile and worthless. Every time I try and plan and set a goal, it's a surefire recipe for disaster since it is guaranteed to go wrong or blow up in my face making me wonder why I ever bothered. I don't feel "good" about it... the older I get, the worse the feeling of insecurity and doubts.

I share your issue. I am in my early 40s and I have yet to figure out what I will or should do with my life. It makes me feel like I have no purpose. When one feels he has no purpose, it is easy to feel worthless. Maybe one day(hopefully soon), our purpose will be revealed to us. Wish you well.
