I’m 47, male, scared about posting here but feel very alone.
I’ve got a nice house, wife and kids, no financial worries and a good job with a great salary.
But I’m just not happy. I don’t know how to be happy. I feel very alone. I have no real friends. I don’t really socialise. My only interest is soccer but I don’t play or coach any more. I feel like I’ve got no purpose.
work is stressful and business results aren’t great. I’m worried I’ll lose my job soon even though I’m working really hard and long hours.
my boys are 17 and 19, I feel like they don’t need me anymore and I don’t have any value other than as an ATM.
I’m in a rut and don’t know what to do. I don’t like to talk in person. I tried a psychologist before and didn’t like it or get value from it.
dont know what to do any more. I don’t feel I have a future, value, any goals and I feel like I’ve pretty much got to the point now where nobody needs me and I’m effectively just treading water and killing time until I die.
what can I do differently?
