Growing up my life happened naturally and orderly, and good and bad happened and made sense to some degree and I felt like I was making progress.

Now I am 35 and not sure i want to have children or that a job is that important to me, and the purpose and direction of my life seems lost and aimless. I thought life would be more beautiful, richer, deeper, more friends, events, etc.

I would love it if war ended and everyone became vegetarian and we started addressing environmental problems and overpopulation, but in the meantime I struggle with my own personal affairs and how much I feel bored with daily struggles and such.

I have things I can do to occupy my time, like studying and playing games, but the purpose seems a little lost to me. I have lost direction to my life after several hospitalizations and failures where I had always assumed success, like in job and marriage and friends. I thought my life would be like it is in the movies, but instead it is boring, monotonous, and I feel nihilistic.

It’s a mid life crises qwerty.

I have no answer, but I do find fannying about on the Internet helps.

My life is like the movies, have you seen the film Leaving Las Vegas, well it’s a bit like that, without the prostitute and well I don’t live in Las Vegas I live in Wolverhampton UK and I don’t think he had a cat, well I have a cat.

Have you thought about reading a good book, sit down think to yourself ‘shall I read a book?’, then think ‘no it’s very boring’, but that will pass 5 seconds.

I bought a kindle, spent a day loading up 12 99p books, haven’t looked at the thing since, but if I ever want to read the autobiography of one of Nolan sisters, i’m sorted.

5 years ago I married and took on 3 step kids, totally changed my life, I can now say I’m the proud step dad to three wonderful children. Ain’t seen them in 5 years, probably best for all concerned if I never saw them again. But I can now say I’m the proud step dad to three wonderful children.

At first I thought it was midlife crisis, and some of it is that, but part of me was this way when I was a teenager and in college too. I felt like everything is a rat race.

Now I think I feel less desperate but to an extent I am a little tired of all my drama, I just bounce from one extreme to another, including numbness.
