They are failures in life. I have a brother who uses his clothing as kleenex. I put these guys in the same category as him.

Sounds like depression. But, I don't mind unless the boredom applies to people.

Someone who is always bored I think is the result of having no solid goals. I only say this because only a few months ago have I decided on what my life goals are, and I have not felt boredom for a moment since. If you have something to work towards, you are always getting closer to your own personal definition of success. What could be boring about your own success? I'm not just talking about money or a certain job, I'm talking about whatever it is you want out of life.
So, for the person who is always bored, I would suggest challenging them to learn a new language and practice it every day, or to write a book and work on it every day. Whatever it is you want, get better at that thing every day. Something that you can devote time to daily I think is important.
Maybe you don't know what you want, and that's normal. I would put some thought into it and choose something that would make you happy. You don't have to commit for your entire life, but you should at least commit to every day until you find what you are really searching for. Hope something in that helps in some way:P

As a person like this, I'm just bored because I don't have any real goals. I could start writing a novel but why should I bother? I could try drawing but what will make it any different from another artist's? To say I'm depressed would be stupid because I'm bored. Not sad. There's a difference. I'm not happy when I'm bored but I'm sure as hell not sad enough to consider killing myself. In contrast to the opening statement of this thread, I haven't done jack shit. No goals, no real talent, nothing. That's probably why I'm bored though. I don't KNOW if I'm good at something or not unless I try it but getting the motivation to start something is an issue in of itself. More than most things I want to be unique, so things like "What if you're no different from others who do this" fill my mind. That's a me problem though. Getting the motivation to do things is less of "I should do this because I might enjoy it" and more of "What will I accomplish by doing this?" and that's a killer in motivation when you realize it'd be something you only do for fun. I don't know what I want to do so I don't have a goal. Not having a goal (including a goal of getting a goal) makes me feel bored. It's an easy fix however, just have to stop being a lazybones and figure out something I can work to achieve. I'm sure I'll get around to it eventually.

tldr; It's a dumb feeling from lack of motivation and if people just got off their asses they'd probably be less bored.

It sounds like chronic boredom stemming off from a mental disorder.

As my grandmother once told me, "If you're bored, you're a boring person."
I agree with that outlook.

I have a friend who is like that, and i try to support him in every way i can. I know he had a very rough childhood.
I try to show him the world is not as dark as he might think it is. And i try to shed some light on what he have experienced. And then get him to talk about it in his own terms. He has come a very far way but i feel hes not there yet...
If you have a friend like that or boyfriend its important you never give up! just stay strong and patient never force anything on them.
It can be really frustrating and sometimes even annoying. But hey im not a quitter


Bromance at its finest
Posted 4/10/17
I don't know how to feel about them? I think they really haven't experienced anything... but then I have one friend... You talk to her... And she's bore... But LOL, like you know what though... She knows everything in class... I think the only thing that keeps her on planet earth is fashion and shopping... Even then it's only because she has a job... Etc. etc....

I think these people just know everything ??

I don't think boredom is a result of mental illness in most cases, I do think depression is a side effect of boredom though. I was depressed and angry and felt that nothing mattered anyway so why try. I used to believe that I was mentally ill, and that's why I could not bring myself to succeed, or why I didn't even want to. I had to take a break from college because I could not even stay awake in class. Fast forward to now, I am doing free online courses in my free time and am enrolled in 12 credits for the summer and 18 for both the fall and spring, my room is spotless, I wear clean laundry everyday and I am not scared or anxious at all. I have not been bored or depressed or discouraged for even a moment in the past few months.I am not on any medication. There are just a few things I think that people who relate to this thread should be aware of:

-Mental illness, while very real, is also a scapegoat for peoples non-success. Unless you are completely incapable of functioning independently, I would not align yourself with the idea that you can't do anything. You can and are probably choosing not to, but so do most other people in the world so don't feel lonely.

-When you 'try' something, only to find out you suck and give up and think you aren't good at anything.. well, I think that nobody is good at anything until they devote the time necessary to be good at something
*clears throat* DON'T GIVE UP. It takes time to get good at things and to acquire skill. This is something I only recently learned after many scrapped hobbies and passions.

In no way do I think I know the secrets of the world, but I very much felt the same as the posts I am reading in this thread, and now I do not. I will offer that you are all welcome to message me if you need anything or want to talk about goals etc.

I had a somewhat better answer but erased it sadly. I forgot what it was.

Boredom doesn't happen because other people are boring. It's just a sign that humans surpass the immense interworking of the universe itself.
