Not depressed...just don't really have anything to live for
    #14708332 - 07/02/11 10:19 PM (9 years, 10 months ago)

How many of you feel this way? I'm not depressed at all, I just at times feel like I have nothing but work ahead of me.

I do well in school, and it's a subject I like (math). But at times it's like everything is so laid out. In awhile (I'm a sophomore math major), I'll complete my degree and get a job. It's a subject I like, but is there more to life?

I actually have a good amount of human contact. I don't know why, but I still feel lonely and pretty much BORED.

I'm doing well in a subject I like. I have friends. I have hobbies. But everything seems so compartmentalized. Even getting fucked up is in its own compartment. Getting fucked up and having a crazy night and cutting lose is boring. I don't know what I want. Everything seems so compartmentalized and boring and work.

I'm not even depressed. I just feel like a robot.

give volunteering a go - preferably something hands on where you can see the effort you put in having an impact on other peoples life. i help out in a dining hall that provides free breakfast and lunch to those experiencing food insecurity. feels good when people are genuinely appreciative

I rely on psychedelics for my "reset button". As a donut fryer why is studding IT, I know the pain of boredom. Finding my girlfriend and massive doses are the only thing I've found that can pull me out of a deep apathetic funk. I wouldn't recommend tripping though, unless you have someone to "come home to".

I feel this way but under different circumstances.

What I think is a big upset, so to speak, is meditation. Once I was actually able to achieve a meditative state I found that there was an enormous abyss presented in front of me. When I started meditation I could only do it for a couple minutes at a time before I'd get bored and it was like I was facing a granite cliff; I knew something huge awaited me. I have since found out that any time I'm bored or feeling a sense of bewilderment it's a transient phase and meditation will always bring it together for me.

I'm finally starting to feel out the enormity of this...psychic state. It's only about a half hour into meditation that I really start to feel the expansiveness and sense of calm that defines meditation for me.

It might sound weird, but if it helps at all, I'm a biochemistry major. I like math, physics, the hard sciences and getting fucked up, but meditation is an altogether different experience.

I feel for you.

The thought that keeps going through my head is:

"I can't wait to get out of school, so I can get a job, and work until I die."

I'm sure things will get better, but frankly I think these feelings have something to do with my psychedelic use and spiritual exploration.

Realizing how insignificant everything is has left me extremely jaded. These days I'm always shocked at how seriously everybody takes themselves.

i'm finding it quite difficult to find meaning in life, especially when you find out that objectively, life is inherently meaningless :zoidberg:

How do you know? :shrug:

I think it's possible that there is an objective meaning for life, however I don't think any human being has or will be able to comprehend it, if it does exist. Saying it doesn't exist however, is just as ignorant as saying that it does  :willynilly:

I have hobbies, and I've been getting good at them.

That's just more work though. School is work. Work is work. Hobbies are work. Friendships are work. Relationships are work. Everything is work...isn't there anything more to life?

And who said work has to be monotonous? Save up, and get initiated into the Bwiti tribe in Africa and take a handful of ibogaine. Get off your ass if you're bored. Life's boring? So go crazy. Touch insanity and share the story. No one else is responsible for your entertainment level.

I feel like that all the time. I guess it comes and goes. I think it's a pretty normal a and common thing that people go through at a certain point in their lives.

I'm still at that point.. where I'm not totally sure exactly what my purpose is, or where I am going, where I will be 10 years from now, what I will do with my free time.

I used to be so caught up or busy in life that I didn't have time to think much about it, but lately I find myself with more free time, which causes me to think about it much more.

its normal to be depressed man. everyone is..

fuck.. atleast ur in school and have somethin going for you. not like my fucked up life sittin at home everyday alone.

be happy your in school and making something with your life because thats a definate plus.

i know i dont have much to live for. i got my ma n thats basically it, a few friends n a distant girlfriend that i never see or barely talk to.

and yes i am depressed, im not suicidal at all though. i do value my time here as of now so you guys dont have to worry about me killing myself. i do like my life, just wish i had something that actually means something to me.

i just want to get my life started basically.

its all good though. we all struggle with it one point or another. just gotta keep on pushin! :thumbup:

I wish there was some sort of end game to push for. If i know there is some sort of heaven that would make things feel a little more comfortable lol.
