Does the rush of life diminish as you get older?

I never had an issue in my childhood. It was all smiles and play no worries at all. But now as a married 36 year old I just find everything boring except a few things. Do you think I need to explore and stimulate myself more to excite my life again? I know variety is the spice of life. Sometimes I wonder if I'm going through a mid life crisis. My wife is busy with the kids and doing stuff around the house all day. I just feel all alone I really like this forum as I feel like there is a friendly social presence here.

I have a job interview I hope that makes me more busy and feel better if I secure a position. I know I have no social life which could cause my boredom and depression.

When I'm alone with my thoughts I feel like I'm going insanely bored and depressed. But when I'm busy in something I feel better.

I just have no motivation and drive to get out of bed in the morning I have nothing to look forward to it's just the same old routine drop my daughter to school and laze about all day twiddling my thumbs. I know some people would want to be in my position because I don't have a mortgage and live in my own house. I feel like I'm early retired its so boring.

I feel sorry for the elderly.

Thanks for listening.

Where I work I see the same people at the cafe every Sunday socializing and enjoying each others company. I really feel a social life is a blessing and very healthy for ones brain and emotions.

I just feel like I've seen it all life is just the same thing over and over again. But then another part of me says we have dopamine for a reason. To seek out novelty that's why we keep exploring to stay alive and keep things fresh.

I think it is normal for people to feel bored. We all need variety and to push out of our comfort zone and be challenged. Sometimes when we think we are bored of life we are really bored with ourselves. I would think of some small goals or dreams or experiences you'd like to try, both alone and with your family. Maybe try one once a month if you can. Just experiment with something a little new or different. You are still very young. It just sounds like you are in a bit of a rut.

Thank you so much for that it was really helpful I think you made a lot of sense and I now understand better what's going on.
