Fulfillment. Something we all want in life. We want to feel like we are doing something with our lives. We want to feel like we are making a difference. We want to have some sort of rewarding experiences.

This is something I am struggling with lately. I feel like I am doing nothing in my life. I realize in some ways that this is not true, because I am going to school so that I can someday do something. I am going to become a counselor and I do believe that that will be a truly rewarding career.

But right now, I feel like I am doing nothing. I feel like I sit on my computer all day, and the most I ever seem to do is schoolwork. Sure, sometimes I hang out with my friends and all, but honestly, I really don't do much in general. I just feel so unfulfilled. I need a job I can handle, or a hobby, or just something. I want to feel like I am doing something with my life, I want to feel like I am making some sort of difference in one way or another.

Any helps/thoughts/tips?


  1. I am struggling with the same thing now that mom has passed. What do you like to do? I like to do crafts and sewing. I am going to start this summer even though I haven't felt like doing anything lately. I am just going to go and do it.

    As for doing something with your life, You are doing something with your life. You are working towards a career that will fulfill you. Keep that in mind. You are doing something important.

  2. I think this is a common problem,i read somewhere that most fibromites are type A personalities,We like to get things done,we will even push through pain etc to get things done.
    Fibro is a great teacher too,we have to learn to listen to our bodies,to appreciate the little things in life.We have to learn to slow down.All these things go against our nature.Maybe your bored ,stuck in a rut and need to try something new.Just dont overdo it:)
