What Worries You?

Old age, and the decay that comes with it. Just dying would be simpler.

I have health anxiety, currently I worry I am having a stroke or hearth attack quite often. Also I worry that I will be unemployable once I graduate university and I worry that I will be lonely forever.

that's why you look for internships and jobs before you graduate, and also make a website and build up a portfolio

even if you can't find a 9 to 5, do volunteering, like at a soup kitchen, and you can freelance on sites like fiverr, and make some stuff that you can put on your site

I think the main problem is I don't want a 9 to 5 at all and am trying to persue a career where I am my own boss in a creative industry. However if that falls through I wasn't clever enough as a youth to think out a backup plan so who knows what's going to happen.

I'm madly in love with my flatmate. I've never wanted to know a person so much as her - I want to know her thoughts, her feelings, everything that goes on in her head. Just being around her makes me so happy. She's been incredibly kind and caring to me, in a way that no one else ever has...I even let her know how I feel. It's not mutual, but I never really expected it to be. I don't even mind.

She's moving abroad. On the one hand, I know that it's what she wants and I'm happy for her, but on the other hand the thought of never seeing her again absolutely kills me. I've never met anyone like her, and I don't want to lose her

Another site I regularly went to since 2008 has closed its doors without warning, perhaps forever. I managed to save some good content off it, though.

Why wont websites last forever? This sucks.

My doggy's getting rather old. I've been regretting the lack of time I've spent with her when she had her youth. She's not the only one I'm worried about- my parents are rapidly deteriorating, and my girlfriend's been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in her 20s.

The days pass by, and time only seems to run faster and faster. It's scary.

Every night, I look outside and I only see a handful of stars (if I'm lucky)
It makes a bit anxious. I know there's supposed to be more of them out there and our artificial lighting is polluting my vision to the point where barely any of them are visible.
Why it worries me, I'm not quite sure. Maybe the fact that I can't see something that people have looked up to for thousands of years and despite the stars still being there, I have no possibility to see them. It feels so wrong.

Maybe my life is just too meaningless that I worry about these kind of things, I dunno anymore.
113 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-28 17:49
I really don't know who I am or what kind of person I want to be, or even what I really like. Things are technically going well for me- I've already accepted a high paying job and have graduated with practically no debt (a miracle in my country), I have a large group of friends I can hang out with, but I still feel unfulfilled. I'm not really sure how to express myself, or how to find (and hold on to) people with similar interests.

I guess I feel like I haven't found my calling? Or that even though I'm surrounded by good things, these things are more "outer" than "inner". But on the other hand, I feel like this could be a "grass is greener" scenario where I don't really see how good things are for me.

I just feel a bit like a fraud, and that my heart isn't really into anything. I'm still young but I don't know if I'll feel satisfied, fulfilled, or even "myself" until I've wasted it.

Self introspection becomes a farce if you continually try to define yourself. There may be consistencies between who you were and who you are now, but challenges often spawn a new part of you that did not previously exist, or reinforces previous conceptions until they're no longer what they were.

The only calling you need is a calling to serve yourself.

I have no idea what to do with my life, nor how to begin thinking about it. I worked very hard (and got lucky), eventually accumulating enough capital to never need to work again. But my life is aimless. The friends I once had have all forged their own paths and become distant, starting families, businesses, adventures, and I am stuck in a constant state of analysis paralysis over what I should be doing. A world of endless opportunity but I cannot find my place within it. Money does not buy happiness, or meaningful relationships, or fulfilment.

With money like that, have you tried traveling? It'd probably do wonders if you're stuck in a rut.

You say that you are confused as to what you want to do, but the money you have allows for a lot. Consider starting a non-profit organization or something, or working on some personal project that pertains to your interests. Or try and meet someone and start a family. As long as you start doing something, anything, the happiness and fulfillment will come. Just don't grow stagnant and do nothing.

Women.
2 weeks ago I finally started talking to a girl I was in love for half a year. We discovered that we live in nearby apartment blocks (she moved there a month ago) on the way from the work and started chatting about it. She almost immediately gave me her phone number by herself to send me the list of books she was trying to give away and the same evening I went to her place to pick one of them and chat a bit. The next day we went to our workplace together, I also came up with some excuse to meet her again in the evening and this time we talked for almost an hour. We smiled and laughed a lot and it was surprisingly comfortable. Then she left to her hometown on a vacation for 2 weeks and the last week we chatted 2-3 times per day almost daily. She sent me photos and described her days there and she was very warm to me.
The conclusion to all this was yesterday when during on of our conversation she mentioned that she has a boyfriend. I was so dumbfounded that I couldn't even process this information.
The thing is I was 100% sure that she knew that I like her before this (later when I confronted her I mentioned it and she didn't deny it). So to me it's incomprehensible how someone can think that it's a good idea to toy with other person's feelings like that. I spoke with 2 other girls about it, and one of them said something in lines "us girls, huh:)" and the other one also didn't see anything wrong in situation and said that she just wanted to be friends with me.

what part of that was toying with your feelings...?
121 Name: Anonymous : 2019-03-25 04:37

The part when she mentioned being in relationship on 10th day of frequent communication with a person who's clearly interested in her. It was related to changing her apartment, so she could easily tell me that even on the first day. Or you know, not giving me her number in the first place.

Becoming a father. My girlfriend stopped taking the contraception pills and I really don't feel fit to be a dad yet. We could afford and manage it in theory, but I still want to travel the wolrd and "live" a little before having to bear the huge responsibility of raising a child.
Don't get me wrong, I really want to have a child or two, just not right now.

I know the feel. I remember going to a friend out in the country, and where he lived you could see so many stars! I had a big reaction to seeing so many for the first time, so I don't think it's meaningless to care.
You can like whatever you want, anon. You linking your life being 'meaningless' to you liking this is a fallacy and a very dark way of looking at things.

I realised when I attended university. Not in America of course. Where I live University is very rough. I always had very good grades without any effort. Never needed to study. This gave me a false sense of superiority.
University sent me to rock bottom. I was barely passing tests and since I never had a need to self discipline, studying was just a very complicated thing for me to do. I barely graduated but with the degree I have, no one cares about how you got it, just that you got it so I'm fine.
But seeing people easily getting good grades on all these exams made me realize just how ordinary I am. I guess leaving that teenage view of self centredness behind you is part of growing up.

tfw for me it's the polar opposite because no matter how much I try, I'll always get grades around 5,6, or 7/10 since I have a few developmental disorders and a one learning disorder
People are always impressed by my discipline and how much i do my best, but my grades never show it. It's very frustrating and I wish I could - if only for a week - feel what it's like to not have to put my heart and soul into studying to get a decent grade

sorry if that sounded dumb btw

Simple, git gud at all of them, or at least attempt to. The less interesting ones just stagnate and you’re left with the ones you like. This only works if you have a ton of disposable money to spend on hobby supplies

I'm worried I'll never make anything of value in my life. Stuck in jobs doing menial tasks, never working up enough energy to make something of artistic value in my scarcer and scarcer free time, and probably not good enough to actually actualize a creation like that well enough that it's a real proper work of art, something that someone will care about on more than surface level.
I'm still pretty good at relaxing and getting that off my mind though.

I worry about the fact that I have no real endgoal as far as my life is concerned. I want to reach enlightenment like in Buddhism but I'm a lazy shit that always finds an excuse to put off meditating everyday, and I want to be the CEO of a tech company/play the role of a benevolent elite for my 3rd world country but I'm a lazy shit that barely studies.

Add to that the idea that I feel odd about the fact that I'm not really looking into having relationships. I mean, they seem to be more trouble than they're worth but I worry that by the time I'll want one I'll just be an inexperienced weirdo goof that hasn't really made any real friends since HS, let alone talk to girls.

tl;dr: I'm just worried that I'm not putting in the effort to accomplish the things I want out of life and I'll just be a loser stuck in his parent's house.

I moved back to the east coast to be closer to my family because a lot of them are getting older and I could tell that there were going to be a lot of funerals in the next few years. I quit a pretty promising job because I didn't want to be flying back and forth so often for such morbid, miserable reasons.
Now it's happening and I don't really know how to feel. I haven't really felt too much so far and I'm not sure if it's cause something is broken in me.
