I just feel a bit average, kind of like I’m going through the motions. I have a great life, a loving partner and a good job for my age, but I’m struggling to find happiness in it. It just feels like things are slightly off. Even things that should disappoint me, like last week when my car broke down on the way home from work and I needed to get a car service in the Bentleigh area, don’t disappoint me. I just feel nothing.
Things that used to make me happy, like my partner, now leave a sour taste in my mouth. We used to spend time together and now my partner prefers to watch TV than be in my company. I know he still loves me, but it’s hard to get excited or happy about anything when everything in life is average. I really have nothing to complain about on paper, but if you dig below the surface, things aren’t as great as they should be.
I’m writing this blog today to see if anyone else has felt the same way and gotten out of it. I don’t want to feel nothing in life. I want to embrace every minute, and enjoy every moment with the people I love, but I’m struggling to. Does anyone have any advice for me?
I am doing everything like normal. I’m not avoiding my responsibilities. Like, when I needed to, I did get a brake repair. Near Moorabbin, there are plenty of workshops where I can get my car fixed, and so I did it. I don’t think I’m depressed because depressed people can’t get out of bed… right? It’s just hard, that’s all.
So yeah, reaching out to anyone who reads this blog, whether you’re my closest friend (hey Ellie) or an anonymous stranger on the internet, do you have any advice? What can I do to find joy in my life again? I’m too young to feel this way.
