well...anyone else feel like me? i'm just some random 16 year old from some suburb of some city, i've got this unwritten schedule that basically would read, wake up, go to school, homework, sleep, repeat...i found myself to be sleeping a load, taking hour long naps every day, and i'm always tired...i go to sleep from 10:30pm to 6:00 am... also i'm eating a 'bit less than i used to...dunno if it's depression or whatever...

i guess i just feel like i don't really matter...i'm not special, i'm not different, i'm just there...soo...anyone else out there? anyone been here? how'd you get outta this rut?

EDIT: serious answers would be appreciated, but seeing as this is the pit, i'm prepared for a few laughs, probably good for me anyways

EDIT2: anyone know any good music suited towards this kinda attitude...i'm listening to some motion city soundtrack that kinda cheers me up right now...tastes go from pop/punk to metal to everything in between

Maybe you're purpose is to provide us with a better appreciation for feeling like we have a purpose, and fate has compelled you to write this to greaten our lives for the better good.

Or maybe you're just another organism that will die and then rot in the ground.

Your life IS useless.

Your existence means NOTHING.

You are nothing but a insignificant speck on this planet, and even less so on a larger scale.


So, you know what you need to do? Make your life spectacular. Give it purpose. Make it exciting. You can't get anything back if you never put anything in. We all feel like this at times, and the true realization of one's character is how they deal with and live with this fact.

I'll leave you with this quote, as well, because, not only do I like it, but it's perfect truth.

"Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another. "

Change yourself. Don't just sit back and accept what you were given, take more. Be ****ing crazy and don't give a **** what other people think about you. Just be an overall crazier person and you'll live a more exciting life.

And about the always being tired thing, those hour long naps are whats doing it for ya. If you don't take naps after school you won't wake up feeling so tired and ****ty. I actually suggest, and i know you'll call me crazy, but try getting less sleep at night. If you get between 8 and 10 hours a sleep at night, you'll feel tired all day i promise. So for now, until the end of school, try to get about 6 hours of sleep a night, and during the summer try to get about 12. I've been there and that's what worked for me.

Definitely felt that before.

Really, look around. Just try and find things you want to try out. Explore a little.
I got into writing peoms and stories. I got into playing guitar. I draw. I tried a lot of types
of music. I got into reading Vonnegut.. and I want to learn bass and piano.
For me, it's progression, and exploration.
That, and love. It truly makes me feel like there's something.

I know the feeling. I eventually said **** the "schedule" and started living how I wanted to. I don't know if it ended up being positive or negative, but at least I felt "alive".

get some friends that you can screw around and do stupid **** with.
try to start a somewhat serious band.
find a girl you like and start a relationship. THAT will definitely add some excitement to your life, good and bad...

If we're going to be philosophical, everyone's life is meaningless. You think your life is more meaningless then some? It isn't. Everyone is born, everyone will die. So just do things during your life which interest and excite you. And remember, after you leave school life will become more complicated and you will have less time to do the things that you enjoy. So make the most of now.

If your religious,get more involved with however your religion congregates.

Also, being in a relationship with someone you actually care about,not someone who you're dating just to be dating.

Both of those have made me much happier.

I am being completely serious when I say this, but you're right, you don't know your purpose yet. You're caught in between that hellhole of puberty and adulthood. So many kids just don't make it through, and they fail. Just hold out a bit longer dude, you'll think of your purpose one day, and when you do, you'll be very happy
#22
At this age what do you expect? We have such heightened emotions and are just beginning to find ourselves. We're at that stage where we're growing independent.. but not financially, so there's conflict in mind as to where we're going and what we're doing with our lives.
Best thing to do is to just enjoy yourself with whatever you can. Go out with friends, play your guitar, find some hobby, and just spend your time in such a way that you feel at least somewhat accomplished or content.

Yeah, I know what you mean.. Especially when I'm alone with my thoughts, I just think, "We all do the exact thing every day, It's all pointless, how can people be happy?"

EDIT: It isn't very often that I feel like this though... Others have given good suggestions, follow their advice.

i've kind of felt that way for the past few months, but i guess it'll wear off some time. i started feeling like that after listening to Fear of a Blank Planet, which made me think about my life a lot.

EDIT: i think it was cause i got hooked on Halo 3, it started in November so it was dark and crappy out, i still don't have a job and feel bad for mooching off my parents, i don't know what to do in college, and i turned 18 last week, so during the time approaching that, i thought about how i felt i'd wasted my life so far, and how quickly life goes by and crap. idk. it sounded better in muh headz.

Been there dude. Why does there have to be a purpose tho', y'know? You can believe in one if it'll help you get through, but life for me is all about just having fun. Do whatever makes you happy man, and don't worry about the rest because in the end you are the only one who has to die when it is your turn to die. No one else can die for you, so no one else should tell you how to live your life until then.

Everyone feels useless at 16 years old. I mean, you're too young to achieve anything career-related. You're enduring really general education in high school, looking forward for the day you'll do what you love.

you gotta switch up your schedule a bit
if your friends want to do something and you just dont feel like it do it anyways
or call them up and go do something
anything other than sitting around your house feeling sorry for yourself
ive gone through it, kinda still am.
no one is going to solve this problem but yourself

good thing about summer coming up is you can go out and do stuff
winter is soo depressing

you have to define your own purpose. how much you matter depends on your personal self satisfaction in impacting others. love those around you and do your best to make it a better world and you'll matter to those that matter. the people that matter to you are those that you should matter to.
