When I was in my mid-30’s I was so excited to see the world ever changing, but now being in my mid 40’s, it’s somehow depressing me.
Maybe it’s change. We are humans of habit, and having a world that is ever changing is oftentimes hard to keep up with. I use to love technology, and now I sometimes wish it didn’t exist. I have wasted so much time online that I want all that time back! But it’s too late.
Looking back to my life five years ago, change didn’t bother me at all. But now I’m realizing that it is effecting my day to day living.
I’m feeling as If I don’t know where to go from here. Like I want to stop time.
So my only guess, is that I’m getting older and coming to the conclusion that everyone has been through this at one point and time. Or will!
Life also seems to be going by much quicker then it did just five years ago.
My body is not what it was, nor my mind, and how I saw the world and people. There is so much hurt in the world that we don’t always think about. Frankly, it’s depressing to think so much on. Yet it’s hard to ignore because everything is in your face.
I sometimes wonder if this is how our grandparents felt when the television became a household add-on.
Before that you received the daily newspaper and either read it or not. Then televisions bombarded the homes with local and world news.
And now, it’s the internet.
Even if you use it sparely, you can never escape the ADS. And if you don’t choose to read what’s happening on the day to day, you have people telling you about it, or overhearing it in passing. Every single thing focuses around the Internet.
So yes, if it sounds like I’m depressed, I am.
It’s so hard to not compare myself with others my age who are still full of energy and zest; living for the moment. Welcoming change.
How I wish I had that mind frame back. Because for many years that is how I lived my life.
But life is not all fun and games and change is inevitable. More then often, hurtful.
I am struggling to find the balance.
I have so much planned for this year still. Things that have been already been paid for. Things have been ordered, and life is already written on the calendar and for the most part, planned out.
I’m told that THAT helps to not fall into depression. Organizing. Planning.
Even so, I feel as if I’m just going through the motions..
