I don't know what to call this

Hello I'm new to this whole sorta thing.

But I just want to know people's opinions.

I get bored at everything in my life from games to friendships to eating is getting boring I don't really know what to do I'm a social person but I don't really know what to do other than make people happy

Like I go to college make people happy

Go to work make people happy

Come home make people happy

But I don't know if I can be happy

I try to get hobbies but everyone doesn't like it so I stop over and over and it's all I can do to try and fill a void I have a gf but I don't really know how to feel but I make her happy so I guess that makes me happy but I just don't know what to do I want to talk to people but there's like a sound proof wall around me and then I hear there problems a I do my best to fix them

I don't really know what to say because I just get bored of every thing now. Any advice ?

  • yes, I get these feelings as do millions of others.

    Try and develop a more humble mind-set - so things aren't doing it for you, so what? There is a lot of boredom in life and you need to find a way to live with it - everybody does or they should do.

    In dealing with other people, try to develop your character to being a good listener, you will find it painful at first to listen when you're not really interested in what they say but make the effort - how you treat and deal with others is one of the most important things in life there is.

    I could go in to the spiritual aspects but many are not really ready and with you being a younger person it might not be the right time - but get back to me if you are interested in that

    cheers

  • You've got me interested what do you mean ? Spiritual

  • Hey bro, I have been where you are in terms of constantly feeling like I had to do something to please others. After awhile, I realized that trying to make others happy wasn't satisfying me. Nothing satisfied me until I sought after God. Little did I know that he was waiting for me the whole time to draw near to him. He has filled me with life like I could never imagine, and there was nothing I had to do (or could do) to receive it. Trust me, the spiritual life will not leave you bored at all.

    God bless you.

  • If you get thoughts that nothing is good enough for you then there is every chance that these thoughts and feelings are not yours but are coming from 'outside' - its just that you believe them as they seem to be a partial truth. What you need to do is form a gap between what you are content with in life and what these thoughts are telling you. If for example faced with the reality of a boring Xmas or not getting anything out of it, then counter with the thought that's ok, I'm happy enough doing the chores, watching a bit of tv, on my pc etc ie LIFE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE SO GREAT DOES IT.

    If you believe in God then have you read the new testament? That's where I started - he is the only one really who can help you develop this line of thinking I mention above

  • Hi, Seanyboy. Do you mind telling me your age? You sound very young. I notice that both replies point you in the direction of religion. If this puts you off, there are other choices you can make. The important thing is to get you feeling better about yourself. Agreed?
