How do people do it? How do you keep on going to a shit job you hate almost every day of your life, working for someone you don't like, all while acting as a completely different person because if they would see a fraction of the real you you get fired or treated like shit.
What's the appeal? I seriously don't get it, I've been working for a year now at a joblongest period I've kept the same job and it's driving me insane and straight towards depressiontown.

Okay, i can buy some things i thought i wanted but they don't bring me happiness, not at all. All they give me is a false justification to continue to do what i am doing but they won't fill that enormous void, not in the slightest.

IS this growing up? Is growing up succumbing to the utter boredom of everyday life and just going on until you die? Is having kids the solution? does it magically suppress all those dreaded feelings? I don't think so.

I should have everything a lot of people want, a low paying stable job but with lots of opportunities to climb the hierarchical ladder of status and wealth. They gave me a raise after 8months because they were pretty happy with me, a wonderful girl whom i love dearly and a dog which is one of the only things that does give me a goodygoodygood feeling But i feel like utter shit, some days are better but that's rather the suppressing of the negative the a rise in positive. I'm nowhere in my life where I want to be, I never feel like myself I've become a complete stranger to myself and to others. Every day I play someone else but I'm feeling more and more drained of energy and I'm reaching my limits.

I'm not necessarily asking for advice. I needed to vent a bit and you guys are the only ones i can really do that with. I'm just tired and everything feels so far away.

oh, nigga
you either become a miserable person permanently or you ascend. you're not content with choosing bullshit, so there's actually hope for you. consider yourself blessed. believe me, most people are fucking idiots.
listen, there is a god. you need to follow the highest feelings that you are capable of feeling. that's the inward path to god, that's beauty, truth, courage and grace. It's all within you. No part of the external aspect of your existence that you try to exercise control over will yield the results you want. What you need is an inward journey.

do your best to try to wake the fuck up, because you're deeply asleep. if this bothers you take it as further confirmation that you need to wake the fuck up.

For real, that's society dude. Society sucks.

Even if you had a job making decent money, and paid vacation time, that isn't going to garauntee happiness.

I live in the US, and it's a shit show. It's a pathetic consumerism based bullshit advertisement society where the "American dream" is to get rich and own a bunch of useless bullshit that you don't need.

Society is a joke, man. It's a sick, twisted game. That's not to say it's hard to get by. It's easy, but soul-destroying.

You bring up how fucked up society is, and a lot of people will agree, but it's like, FUCKED up. Like hair-pullingly, vomit-inducingly, skin-peelingly fucked up, but for some reason people have this visor pulled over their eyes keeping them complacent and ignorant.

I often times find myself wanting to get rid of most of my possessions and traveling with a backpack into the wild.

For the overwhelming majority of westerners, if you're not miserable, you're probably responsible for making someone else miserable. This is the shitty future we have wrought. Unfortunately, an awful lot of humans genuinely revel in and actively desire and pursue mediocrity and emptiness -- I don't know whether that's because they're broken or if that's just a normal variation that would have been evolutionarily well-adapted to tribe life in the pleistocene. It's pretty much always been the case that society offers few options for those who desire something more interesting.

That being said, you really have to find a way to not make your job your life or a definition of who you are. Don't have kids, that's just about the worst thing you could possibly do. But while Sophie may be a dipshit , finding something that fills the spirituality programming baked into your DNA really could do you some good -- but the best place to start would be simple meditation. You don't have to involve supernatural or philosophical bullshit.

The other thing is, are you sure that what you're doing is your only option? Because I've been doing that for the last couple of decades, and I'm also facing that question. I'm lucky, of course -- I have some skills that would actually be useful in some kinds of freelance work, and I could in theory take a risk, cash out my retirement fund (which I wouldn't be able to live on anyway), and try to transition into doing that. My problem is that I'm very risk-averse, especially if it's risk to my cats.

As insane as it sounds, you might want to see if you can meet with a career coach or life coach or something like that. You might fail, but if you don't have responsibilities for anyone else, you actually have the freedom to do that -- another reason not to have kids. In fact, Beatrice has the right idea: wherever possible, you should strive to minimize just how much material Stuff you have. People are what matters, although as an introvert, I fully appreciate that that's way easier said than done.

I don't claim to have all the answers, of course, anyone who does is probably trying to sucker you into some kind of cult (see, again, Sophie). Things will probably never be easy, but it's at least possible that you have more options than you think.

Good luck.

Once you stop emotional reactions to brands, celebrities, politics, and other things which are the content of the life of the modern western person what else is there?
Consume until you die and work to maintain your particular consuming habits? Once you're at the point this is unsatisfactory, once you're "aware" of certain things, society has nothing for you anymore in terms of real happiness.
Next you have metaphysical belief.
Choose a religion, a god, a mentor, a life coach, a belief in anything which is not a scientifically proven part of reality. Take acid and believe in the oneness of all.
Meanwhile, don't take it too far. Use your spirituality to continue existing happily in modern society which means consuming.
See? It all leads back to it. It's a conspiracy (btw are you familiar with the book "The Conspiracy Against the Human Race"? I highly recommend it).
Those that are born rich don't deal with this bullshit. Religion is for the poor to shut up, spirituality is for people like us (regulars) to shut up.
What if you go with the scientific method? If you honestly do so, you realize it's all equally bullshit.
Next you have the evolutionary biological need to procreate. If you do so you will experience the feeling you need to live for your child without which humanity wouldn't have survived until now. That's all it is though, there is no "purpose" of life in a real sense, just biological incentives. It's a low quality choice to go with procreation.
So what's left? You exist in the present moment. You interpret reality, reality IS interpratation.
I mean there's nothing really but you do exist so go on existing, or not.

Pretty much the opposite, actually. I don't know enough about any other cultures to say much about them. I figure probably they have their own problems but they're also probably not hanging out here so it doesn't really matter. But whatever makes you feel better to bleat about, mate.

Why do you have so many memes about something you ostensibly hate?

Yeah find a job you don't hate. My dad hated his job and I was resigned to the same shit for a long time and just didn't bother with my career as I thought I'd hate it and get nowhere regardless.

The cycle won't necessarily repeat forever but I wish I'd started trying a lot earlier as I'd have a house and security and a the ability to fuck off to another country and all these things my friends take for granted and I am still going to have to wait longer for.
