Do you ever feel like you're stuck in a life you don't even want anymore?

I feel that way a lot lately.

  • I don't think that we are ever really stuck. If you feel that something needs to change, change it. We can only help ourselves.

  • No
    Its good to talk to someone, let go of anything holding you back, try new things.

  • I feel like Me and Evan Williams will be getting to know each other a little better some nights than others... but I never feel stuck. Stuck would not be a good feeling to have. Do you have anyone close by you can talk to?

  • I've managed to make changes for my life and I got into the University I wanted (which is a huge accomplishment for me in itself) not to mention I'm earning a 3.50 GPA right now (which is also another huge accomplishment for me), but I suppose I am just frustrated with myself for taking this long to finally do something. I feel like I wasted ten years of my adult life on doing nothing and I am just anxious to stabilize my life. Become financially secure and stable. Not that money means everything to me, but I'm sick of living in a house that isn't mine where I can't have a dog. lol And I can't decorate it the way I want it. I know that seems petty, but I suppose that's what being successful will mean to me. Not only having a career that I enjoy but having the freedom to enjoy the life that I always dream about.

  • Yeah I have my cousin and a couple friends. I am pretty introverted sometimes though. I don't often feel comfortable talking to people...except online.

  • I don't think I have ever felt that way, but we all have the power to change things we don't like...a little patience and some time will do the trick

  • BTW

    My husband and I separated at the beginning of the year. We were separated for three months and quite honestly I felt liberated from it. Yet somehow we ended up back together and even though things are pretty stable right now, I have this aching feeling in my gut all the time that it's not what I want anymore and I'm just trying to find the courage to finally say it to him. I know it will crush him and with everything that is going on in his life right now, I feel like it would destroy him. I know it's deceitful, but perhaps I'm also giving our relationship the benefit of the doubt, but my gut keeps tugging me in the other direction.

  • yep. its hard to feel anything but stuck when the only way out of my situation is to finish my degree. ive got at least another 2 semester of school before i can start working (i can teach now but then i wouldnt get loans for school & id have to pay back my old ones). i dont feel that everyday, but yeah sometimes i feel that way.

  • Sounds like you're headed in the right direction. You'll feel so much better after you graduate. Sounds like my situation in 2009. What a motivator. I was going to leave when he was going to stand in the way of me enrolling. And we were even married for 5 yrs then. It's all I wanted in the whole world was to do something for myself. A step I thought I missed along the way. Now I can't believe I was going to let him go!! Now all I want is this family. I don't even care that I am not working right now. I just had to complete who I was. He wanted more kids and was mad I was making him wait til my 2 yrs were up. Our son was almost 4. Graduate and let things calm down and just maybe you'll change your mind about him. I was so angry with him even though I chose to be with him at 16. I did keep up with our "agreement" and had our daughter last summer. We've been together 13 yrs. Gooooood luck!!!
