    Now I'm not suicidal so don't waste your time writing that in the comments, but I'm so bored of life. Like I've done everything it has to offer.

    I hate going to work everyday, I might manage 3 hours sleep a night and drive over 2 hours everyday in commuting. I have to be up at 4 am so I never fall asleep in time. 10 hours a day hating life just wanting to go home and watch Netflix. To earn money I never see just to survive.

    I have nothing I want to do in life, I hate the idea of traveling, going out, aspiring towards things.

    All I really want is to know how Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead end.

    I will admit I currently don't have any friends anymore as they've all moved away. I might see my partner once a week and talk to him but he works too much and has to work every weekend, public holiday and pretty much whenever.

    Not that I am suicidal or anything, but I hear a lot of people saying their terrified of death. I don't know why, it sounds so peaceful. Like an eternity of sleep.

    I'm kinda just interested as what I can do to have some fun I guess.

    That's why people get old. They lose interest.

    I feel like you, even if I love my work, and my study, my home and many things in my life, I feel terrible sometimes, well I think that nobody takes me seriously, many people minunderstand me when I say some without the slightest bad intention, I do not consider myself attractive although I have good self-esteem but I would like know what feels to be desired and I feel that all my projects fail besides all tires me lately and my relation with some of my family is not the better.

    I think it's the routine and lack of emotion in the life.

    That's an odd sentiment at that age. If you don't like your situation with the job and hours why not think of a means to change it? Maybe with more time on your hands you can figure out things that you do like to do.

    I guess to me that sentiment is just baffling so I have no advice. Every few years I always seem to discover something new and fun to invest my time in. And it's always something I never see coming.

    Human kind will be exterminated by zombies and Daenerys will rule the seven kingdoms.

    Other than that you should deffinitely quit and get a better job!

    OP....Really?icon_rolleyes.gif You've done everything life has to offer? So 22 and life is over!....icon_rolleyes.gif BULLSHIT!
    A little melodramatic and not even remotely true. icon_razz.gif
    Have you made your million dollar idea yet?
    Have you ever held your newborn child?
    Have you ever saved a life from choking or injuries or a heart attack?
    Have you earned a degree in some field of study? Have you ever been "the HERO", sports or personal, etc?
    Wake up.... Turn OFF your TV!....DISCONNECT the Cable, Get off of the internet!
    Get your butt out of the house.
    Go pick up a few classes at a local college....or simply go get classes in CPR, AED and First-Aid. I don"t know about OZ, but in the US, these are usually cheap or free to get....and usually available at a Fire Station, hospital, library, red cross, etc.
    Go volunteer someplace....a hospital, a school, the local animal Shelter...
    The point is that you are bored, because you are boring and have lost touch with the qualities that make you human.
    Watching TV and being on the Virtual game worlds and various forums and porn sites, is hardly personal interaction.
    Get reacquainted with who you are by interacting with others.
    Contrary to common belief, at 22, you haven't scratched the surface of life, hardly started to live or even figure out who you are and what you want beyond the next hour... Life is not always about "Instant on-demand Gratification"...most of the time it is trial and error, wait and see, and hard work to develop friendships and a rapport with the meaning of your life. Life means more to an individual, when he discovers that he means something to another or that he matters to a lonely person or animal and makes a difference in his part of the world...
    Maybe you need to crawl out of your shell and connect again....you sound isolated by your own making. Only you can change this. Good Luck!

    You are not in a position or authority to say life is boring when you barely experienced it. Smeh

    No one is going to do the changes for you other than yourself.

    Almost everything feels like a drag, isn't it? It feels like daily life is too repetitive, it's just one never ending cycle.

    I've been feeling exactly that way lately too.

    I wonder if your appetite's been affected as well? Anyway that feeling itself is actually a huge warning sign that can't be neglected.

    Take a break from work, if possible. Develope new and positive interest(s) to motivate yourself, try to reconnect with old trusted friends via internet tell them exactly what are experiencing, your feelings nd thoughts from deep inside. You can also simply go hiking, go to the beach, do volunteer works for animal shelters/orphan, etc. While your partner's busy, try to let him keep tracks of your whole situation.

    You need motivation, positive motivation, to reawaken your energy again.


    Watch out, buddy. If that vibe lingers, depression is gonna be on its way for you. Better fix it while you can! A few friends' helped me and slowly I'm starting to feel better, I'm not in the best of moods right now. But surely it's a lot better than my gloomy self from before! Stay positive, hopefully all is gonna be well!

    It's never too late to change the course of your life. What you do with the cards you are dealt is your decision, and you can trade in a few cards whenever you want.

    Boredom: the desire for desires.~~Leo Tolstoy

    When you pay attention to boredom it gets unbelievably interesting.~~Jon Kabat-Zinn

    How many times must I get up
    Look out and see the same old view
    How many times must I wear the same old things
    And hear the same old things that I do, I do
    How many times must I clean this face my face
    And how many times must I shine my shoes, oh lord
    How many times must I drink the same old drink
    And dream the same old dreams that I do

    Oh gawd. I'm up this late because I just got home from the city watching the most boring (and most recent) Pulitzer prizewinning play ever in some moldy Village theatre (that aggravated my allergies and bronchitis) about the employees of a moldy movie theater. The conceit was that it was scripted like real life with imperfect dialogue and long, often awkward pauses and, presumably, that's what won it the Pulitzer.

    I don't even remember the name of the play and I just saw it. It might've well have been called "Waiting for Godot Light." I didn't read up on it before, nor read up on it after. But it may as well have been called "Wow, life is boring isn't it?" The best part was seeing Victor Garber two rows behind me. Still hot after all these years.

    There WAS a line from one of the dead-end job characters with a presumably bleak future that says something like "I don't understand suicide, I'm too curious about my future" or some such which in essence might very well have been a distillation of the play's theme.

    I think everyone gets times in their lives when they feel like it's boring, or challenging, or they're not sure what's next.. When I get like that I try to do something totally new and challenge myself in a new way.. I've done some amazing things in my life (as I'm sure you have as well), but there are times when I feel complacent.. that's okay, but when it becomes a bit boring it's time to push the boundaries a bit more.. get off the sofa, go somewhere new, try something different.. only you can really change your feelings and if you just keep doing the same, you'll only get the same result.

    Take some time out and meditate on the above statement.

    Switch of the TV and do something positive.

    people who invest so highly in fantasy like wlaking dead or game of thrones often do so because they project themselves into that reality. Those realities are dangerous but theyre EXCITING! guns and zombies, turmoil, betrayal, magic etc etc etc are all alluring concepts which entice you to place your mind in a sort of a surrogate reality to carry it instead of your real one because there's nothing here that anchors you.There's nothing you really care about.

    I know what that feels like. I LOVE good stories, but never replace reality with fantasy. That's the start of a host of problems. Find something you care about, or do something spontaneous. A chain of events starting from there could lead anywhere. I often literally take buses to areas in cape town i don't know and wander around to see if there's anything interesting. It's a lovely experience.
    Also, make a friend and join an activity with them eg if they do yoga, attend a yoga class with them. You will expand your friendship group by doing so and may find something out about yourself you never knew.

    No person alive has experienced all life has to offer. Not even a one hundred year old millionaire can say that they have.

    You have to find a way to create your own meaning in life. The most important ingredient here is maintaining a relentlessly positive attitude... Commit yourself to being a good friend, a positive person, a lively personality no matter what. People will see that...

    Sounds like you've become uninspired. You have no passion for anything. You mentioned you're not feeling suicidal. But since u even mentioned it...it has crossed ur mind, hasn't it?

    I dont know what to tell u.... But may I recommedn the book "The Alchemist"... it's a great read.
