No mocking from me. What is it you do for a living?
It’s called beer.
How long have you felt like this? Since you were a child?
Never mind what anyone left behind will say. Your only concern should be what He thinks of you. Your only concern should be to get yourself into His Book of Life.
Do you read your Bible? If not, start. Once you have, you will not care what anyone else thinks of you after you're gone.
God loves you and has a purpose for you. Your job is to find it; the trying alone may be beneficial.
But then, what do I know; I’m just another sinner.
I go to work every day too, and most likely that’s all that anyone notices. There is a wonderful man who loves me and I have some great friends and a wonderful family. I get lost with my horse hobby sometimes to the point that I don’t pay much attention to anything else. And I go to work.
But I’m also as nice as possible to everyone I encounter. Try to always remember to say please and thank you and try to do some random nice deed each day for someone.
That’s enough for me.
“man up you wuss”.
Seriously, are you seeking treatment for depression? I presume from what you’ve told me here that you are in your mid twenties.
Your symptoms sound very similar with what I was going through at the time. When I finally got treatment, I felt like myself again, but it took a long time for me to figure out what was wrong.
No mocking here.... but the book of Ecclesiastes comes to mind. The preacher in the book had the same issues that you have, but came to some very valuable conclusions. It will help you. Read it :)
You need to speak with your clergymman NOW. If you don’t have one, get one. Probably he will recommend that you seek psychiatric counseling, and you should go for anti-depressants to treat this acute situation. Then you should take them.
We all are here for a purpose, and we may never know what it is. Perhaps it is to make one statement to one person one time, that will change that person’s life. We never know. G-d doesn’t make mistakes, and if you are here you belong here. You need to accept that you may never know your role, and in the meantime your job is to push forward and not do anything that distances you from G-d.
Mind if we ask your approximate age?
Think you found it, Bro -- spend more time with God. The void you're feeling is probably "faith-shaped' to a certain degree.
I've been there. Spend more time not only talking with God, but listen to Him through scripture. It does a body good!
There is a God sized hole in everymans heart and only he can fill it.
I had the same issues for a while and sometimes I still do. I figure its cause I’m in my 40’s.
I have a solution. I suggest that you go to a shrink. One who does hypnotism. Have him hypnotize you. Have him completely relax you. Make all your cares and concerns disappear. Have him go really deep. Have him put you in a state of complete relaxation. Then don’t let him snap his fingers and “wake” you up. That should fix you.
Let us know how it goes.
Oh, one last thing. After this happens keep away from a guy who is looking for “his stapler”.
You may not go down in the annuls of history but you will have made a difference.
I had to cut down, people complained I was too happy.
Sounds like you’re spiritually bankrupt. Why don’t you try reading the bible between now and Easter. If something in your reading catches your attention or doesn’t make sense, do some casual internet research on it.
This could possibly be God preparing you for something.
I got restless and felt pretty meaningless and dull for a bit and then an opportunity came along that I probably would not have taken if I had been content with how things were in my life.
I thank God for it. It changed my life.
Took me out of my comfort zone, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Keep your eyes open for unusual chances.
And God bless...I hope it gets better. You do have a purpose.

I was in the Navy, I hope I made some tiny difference.
