But I’m young, I should want to do something but I just don’t seem to care. Nothing motivates me. Everything I use to love no longer matters or applies to who I’ve become.
Who have you become?
how old are u? im 18 and i spend a lot of time playin baseball and will continue to, so to me nothing else natters so when i wanna do nothing after a hard day at the field, i do nothing
18. I’ve become the complete opposite of who I use to be. I look the same but inside I’m different. I’ve done a complete U turn. In the simplest terms I am a person who wants to do nothing. I know I’m wasting this life that I’ve been given but I can’t seem to change. I keep falling back into this hole i’ve dug.
Hmmm… sound like Linkin Park. Anyway, what were you like before?
Is there any particular reason for the change or did you just wake up one day and find that you had left yourself?
If you do nothing, at least your doing something, in the mind of Socrates
Linkin park? What do you mean?
No it didn’t happen over night. It came on gradually. I could see it and other people close to me noticed it to. I tried to fight it but I just stopped eventually.
Was there anything in particular that caused it, though, or was it just some sort of lethargy that crept over you?
BTW Linkin Park is a band and something you said sounded like something from one of their songs.
You do nothing. But then that would negate the whole concept about doing nothing because if you do nothing then you’re doing something by doing nothing. So then what do you really do?
PARADOX TIME *does a dance*
I know it’s late for the original poster, but for anyone out there..
Life can throw a lot of things your way, and you can bring a lot your way too if you want it. A U-turn in life like this tells you to stop looking for anything outside of yourself for happiness and joy, but is life’s way of helping you to learn to be happy, loving and comfortable all on your own.
Whilst in this despair, as at all times, you have a choice. You can choose to resist, resent and try to repel how you’re feeling, or you can choose to accept, love and even cherish this emotional void.
With time this love for even the death of ‘you’, can begin to take new forms; how could you not begin to love everything that surrounds you in your life if you have love even for this bleak void.
Keep looking inside, whilst you might not find love, you can certainly choose to love yourself as you are. Go from there and amazing things can happen.
i searched on google (what to do when there is nothing you want to do) and found this, thats how i feel at the momoent in my life. it’s a horrible feeling. i see this was written 2 years ago. if you have figured a way out of it could u give me an advice.
