Have you ever reached a point in your life where?

There just seems to be nothing exciting or motivating for me, like I have just pretty much lost everything worth striving for, I’m even starting to lose care in my health, at least I’m not battling, I earn a crust working a shitty day job, run a freelance photography/graphic design business on the side which was a struggle due to businesses being closed during covid and even I’m losing my interest in that along with my creative mojo, and I have to confess I have dabbled in a little coke this year but making sure that doesn’t become a problem. I feel like I have no one in my life, apart from the amazing people I have met here and EP over the years, and the most distant friends I have in this world are my closest because the connection is genuine with no perks.

But that being said, I feel like I’m starting to lose my way again and running out of flying 💩s to give, Ive even been drinking heaps, and pretty much only eating twice a week and only eat when the hunger pains get annoying. I haven’t even followed up on my health checks I was meant to get done.
Lately I’ve just been feeling like a prisoner in my own life and I just can’t seem to see the light at the end of the tunnel at all.

Yea few things excite now
I get bored in general so I can relate.
Try and do just one small thing tomorrow to start that journey to turn it around. Even if it’s just make yourself a nourishing breakfast 🤗
[@1115909,Notladylike] such a great opportunity to take in a day off, I was meant to have a day off and work on a project but I put my hand up for the extra shift because I’m thinking of now and not the benefits of the future. It’s like being stuck on auto pilot with that brain fart lol. Do you feel that way too?
[@1390,AwakeningConfession9] Yep feel like I’m losing complete days at the moment
[@1115909,Notladylike] same here, sometimes I even forget which day of the week it is lol

I get like that in between obsessive research of topics. My last one was the power that thinking has over your life though, so I'm being very careful what I tell myself from now on.

[@417364,Ozymandias] no you are not the thought but the thought can create your life experience.

What moves me now in life is hope. Hope to be able to live one day the life I want with the person I love. Hope to be able to see one day that the world is a less shitty place.

It is that hope what moves me to stay healthy, because if my hopes may become true, and I am a human wreck, everything will have been in vain.
[@16207,Cierzo] that’s the thing bro, it’s almost I have no hope left, especially in a chaotic divided and conquered world and after a break up, and the dreams and future plans all down the dunny too. Now I don’t know wether to move into a share house with strangers or get a cheap unit in the western suburbs, surrounded by the life I have been steering away from for the last 22 years.
[@16207,Cierzo] [quote] everything will have been in vain[/quote] I have painted that sentence 5 years ago with the same thought (is live just all in vein) and it was back in the days when I was a coke addict which kind of also related to that painting.

I wish we lived in the same country bro and we could just go get fucked up and I could bash him and you could bash her. At least we would feel better for awhile.

But it will happen again. You will fall in love again and so will I. 💙

It will get better, just do the best you can and don't focus on all of the stressors, easier said than done, I know. It's difficult with COVID, and life is not normal, but we can always adapt to our surroundings. You are still the same human, and maybe take up some meditation to quiet the mind? Stay safe and strong!

That is called "anhedonia" I get it sometimes too. It's hard when things happen and you feel overwhelmed and hopeless. When it happens to me, I watch Youtube documentaries about the millions upon millions of families who live and sustain themselves in garbage dumps, or the bloated baby human skeletons in the horn of Africa. It helps me redirect my thinking a little bit.
Still, sometimes I have to force myself to do the things I used to love to do, so I definitely understand.
