my so-called "life"
    #2192112 - 12/20/03 02:11 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

so here i am, im 19 years old, and very new to this site. i am wondering how many people are having difficulty lately focusing. things that were once important to me, things like the tasks of daily living, are no longer enjoyable for me. things i used to view as fun and exciting are all of a sudden losing their luster. i play guitar, so i am finding that this is affecting my playing, and also my interactions with other people. i am wondering if this is just a "phase" that i am going through, or if it is marking something more... a change of some sort in my life. i do not know what brought about these sudden feelings. it seems to me i went to sleep some night and never woke up, or that i havent slept in a very long time, im not really sure which. i am wondering if any of you out there reading my thoughts have gone through this before, and if so, what were the results of your journey? i am wondering about a lot of things lately... how "real" is this life? and is the way im viewing it affecting my mood? probably... but how to change how i view it if im not even really sure how i view it. i am in a very confused and upset mindframe, lacking all control over my motions... i feel like a puppet at the mercy of a cruel and bitter master. if anyone can enlighten me i would be most grateful.   

:confused:

If I had those feelings (and I have had those feelings), I would get a counselor.

I hate to generalize, but since you yourself are having trouble pinning down what the problem is, I would say take an honest look at your life and look for inbalance. You were in a groove, now you're out of it- something threw it out of whack. Find that something and counterbalance it. I can't tell you what that is because I don't know the particulars of your life.

It also sounds like you are going through an awakening period. An expansion of consciousness. It is often an uncomfortable feeling- you're out of your comfort zone- the world you thought you knew no longer exists.

how "real" is this life? and is the way im viewing it affecting my mood?

For sure. If you don't believe me, take a good dose of muscle relaxers and pain killers and take a walk in your neighborhood, mental or physical. The very same "reality" now has a much more positive vibe. Some say enlightenment is just like everyday reality except a foot off the ground.

I also think a lot of what you are going through is normal rite-of-passage stuff. You said you're nineteen. You've probably not been out of high school long and it's a big change. Up until now your life was planned out for you- from birth to kindergarten to junior high and high school. You didn't have to think too much about things, other people did that for you. Now you have the task of planning your own life and *willing* yourself someplace. No one can do that for you.

In order to get someplace you have to first know where you are. And who and what you are.
Sounds like you've started that process and it's entirely normal. Eat right, exercise, sleep, be with those you love and get moving. (Forget the part about the pain pills.) -Jell

I don't think this is necessary, depending on the person. As long as someone is intelligent enough, aware of the problems in their life, and is willing to go through some tough mental times dealing with them, I think it is entirely possible to do it yourself.

Its just something that needs to be worked through. I mean, if it gets to a point where one feels that there is no longer any hope or chance of doing anything to change, then it would be time to see a specialist, I think.

But our mind is our own, and we know it the best... as long as the problems are like life threatening or anything, and one feels that they can work through them themselves, with the help of some good books and some mental work, it can be overcome. :grin: (just woke up, got this link sent to me, everything's blurry.. *aplogizes*
Peace.
Peace.

that link was kinda cool. :cool:

Guitar dude.. I have felt that way and in my own experience it is a good experience..like right now whats wrong with me is not a mystery, and I dont know how to work thru it..
But in the past when I felt the way (I think) you do I was forced to figure it out..for me it took looking at my whole life and finding inspiration in what was and will be again.

Living in the apex of my own music..change is coming for us always, and we are in controll.
I would reccomend uprooting..scare yourself!
take a risk and follow thru(highs and lows)..whatever comes afterwords you still have the journey..and journeys are always cool :laugh:
I hope some of that made sense..peace and shroomyness

If you smoke weed, try cutting down or stopping.
