I've had a job for the last three years, and around this time every year I feel the same way about how I will never get to enjoy a summer break again. Makes everything feel off for me. I just want to be lazy for three months, damn it!

On another note, what brings you the most joy in your life? A lot of the time I feel borderline depressed when I haven't expressed myself creatively in some way recently. If I haven't acted or composed anything, everything builds up inside of me and I feel horrible. That's when the thoughts start to creep in. "Am I good enough?" "What am I doing with my life?" "I'm a waste of space." If you have something that makes you feel incredibly creative, then do that! If you have to force yourself to do it, do it anyway! I often have to force myself to write when I'm in a mood like that, mostly because I don't feel like doing anything at all, but it still helps out in the end.

If that doesn't work, as much of a stigma society wrongfully gives it, there is nothing wrong with going to a therapist and talking things out a bit. At the end of a day, they are just people you talk to and bounce ideas off of. But at the same time, they know how to redirect that ball towards places and things that may be causing some of these feelings. I haven't been since I was a teenager, but they helped me through a lot of rough times.

Yeah I used to draw and write music/sing all the time and I've just kind of stopped :/ Maybe I will give it a shot again. As for therapists I've seen them my whole life and they don't help me lol. I just feel like a cash crop. I guess I feel off because I am in a relationship and I'm just kind of over it (today). But my feelings keep changing regarding the matter, and I am so confused at myself.

You want a holiday from them lol

Maybe you want to discover other stuff, spend time alone etc...

You definitely should give writing another shot!

I know what you mean about therapists. It took a long time for me to actually open up to mine and make any progress, because I never wanted to be there. Even for a long time afterwards nothing clicked. It took about a year and a half to make any headway, just because I used to be incredibly closed off. So they aren't always for everyone.

As for the last part: we've all been there, it's life. One day you're in love, the next you want to strangle them. Most days, both. But when you're trying to make sense of it all it's the worst thing in the world. I'm not one to give relationship advice, so I'll avoid that. But have faith and don't regret whatever decision you make. Your path may change in a million ways ahead of you, but the path behind you remains singular.

Best of luck in all things!

lol Indeed I think I want a holiday -_- it's not really like I want to date anyone else either, I just kinda want to be alone and do me ya know?
Guess I'm feeling fickle

Matt, couldn't put it better friend ^_^ even though you avoided the relationship advice it helped to hear I shouldn't regret my decisions so I appreciate it! I'll work on mending my creative self!

my opinion is that if you feel like you need to rethink your life, then you do need to rethink your life

I don't feel to good lately either

I think maybe we all have some thinking too do lol

Don't think - Just do

thinking about life is proven to be bad, don't do it cause it can create depression

Lol not thinking...I may just try it. To silence all thoughts in my head would be nice but it may be fairly difficult for me

Tonight, I hate every human being around me.
Maybe I'll wait until daylight to schedule that psych evaluation after all..

You know I hate human beings in general, we are awful creatures. I get along better with animals! You don't need a psych eval, you probably just need a good rant, which I am always open to listen if you ever need! You may feel better if you just hash it all out! Let me know if you need a friend!

there are really good people out there as well, but if you encounter shallow people daily, I think it can distort your view if what people are like
