    I mean idk
    i shouldn't really feel sad or anything now cos most stressful things have gone away although obviously everyone has stressful stuff in their 'real' life not just their academic life so that's still about but it shouldn't warrant feeling sad i suppose, more frustrated and angry.
    i know that i dont like change, i never have and i suppose im just trying to adjust really but i feel so down. I suppose i just cant have a sort of neutral 'good' feeling. Everything has to be extremes, either amazing or crap. i just dont know why i cant be happy in the moment. i always feel like i have to be pushing for something or on a journey to achieving something and now that im not doing those things i just feel dull and purposeless. Because really there is no point in my life if im not doing those things. Im only here for one person. i know this feeling is only temporary and as soon as i get to where i want to go to i'll feel better, at least that's the hope. If that doesn't work in 3 years ill probably join the sappers if they will have me, that sort of routine and challenge appeals a lot to me.
    idk really, i hope in the next few months it will be the case of someone i knew/sort of still know who went and made a new life for themselves and is happy now. I really want happiness i just cant seem to find it in pretty much anything. Idk if other ppl feel this way but i feel like my sort of 'baseline' mood is one of darkness, overthinking and just unhappiness and that things that make me 'happy' dont really make me happy but actually distract me. before this made sense but now the main thing that was making me unhappy has gone i dont understand why im not suddenly super happy
    i think this is why people dont bother with me as much as they used to before and hardly talk and dont message as much, because im annoying and miserable and pessimistic
    idk why i wrote this rlly, back to using tsr as a counsellor lol

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Once in a while you do get happy days, but most of the time you are merely distracting yourself from whatever pain you are dealing with.

    I can relate to bits and pieces of this.

    It's honestly such a **** feeling to feel sad, angry, frustrated etc all the time.

    I hate saying it because I struggle to take my own advice, but you have to find whatever it is that makes you feel purposeless in some situations and work on it.

    I can just see myself spending my summer on TSR when I should be doing exactly that - it's just kind of alright because sometimes makes things easier to deal with :lol: but I need to find another vice... I mention this because maybe you feel the same way.
