"I thought life would be more than this."
My friend was being real. Life slowly went into the shitter and every path out of it seems unlikely to succeed plus trying to get out actually seems to be more painful than where he is right now. So he stays right there--for years. Don't get me wrong. Life from the outside looks pretty hunky dory. Good job. Kids. Wife. Home in the burbs. The american dream. He knows the truth though. And so do you.
You get it. You've been there. I've been there. We've all been there. Sometimes you wake up to one or a combination of these thoughts:
"What is the purpose of this life? Why am I doing this job? Do I love my spouse? Does she love me? My children hate me. Do I matter? Do I have what it takes? Do they like me? Why don't I have kids yet? Will I ever find peace? Why did he leave me? Who am I? "
These aren't just passing thoughts. They consume us. They take over our brains and impact our bodies. My friend reports stress, illness, and basically daily dread.
