This world is boring..
The same shit over and over and over again.
I’m just tired of hearing and seeing the same shit about life repeatedly.. it’s boring.
And I’m old enough to have experienced a lot in this world so you can’t say I haven’t lived. I most certainly have. Again this place is boring.
The same tired ass people day after day.
Liked if I could inhabit another world where it’s way better than this then I’d hop on the first flight out of here for sure.
Does anyone else feel like this world is not the best thing since being alive?
Just some food for thought to you beautiful people out there .

You do have options - 1) deal with it, 2) check out or 3) find a new world where you can be in charge and set a non boring agenda.

Can people just move to Indian Reservations? I mean, it seems kind of rude having stolen the rest of the land to just move your white ass onto the reservation.

There are new things and old things you can find that might entertain you. I decided in the spring that I had to stop thinking about "the world" so much (too much, tbh). I'm immersing myself in some local stuff, including volunteering and working at some local history sites. It's why I moved to this area two years ago. Also a great music scene. Then the pandemic, social uprisings, 1/6 etc happened. I got too wrapped in all of it. Now that the town I moved to two years ago is starting to open back up & have some activity, I'm loving it. People are socially responsible here so the COVID "battles" aka disinformation has largely stayed out of our town. There are a lot of outdoor events here anyway (concerts & plays outside, "plein aire" painting days as an outdoor event). Other fun things. I still understand that the earth is pretty much toast, this country is a failed experiment, and we're being constantly observed and manipulated by the capitalist oligarchs, but I just can't fucking think about it AS much. No, this isn't some "woke backlash" comment. One thing I learned a long time ago in social justice movements is you have to REST your mind or you will burn yourself out. Then you're not able to fight at all.

You are most likely uneducated and have no imagination. Educated does not mean the same thing as trained.

Yeah, guess what OP? A twink at work had that attitude, then COVID hit and his hours were cut so he went back to his family's village. Now he lives rent and board free but the catch is he has to mind his sister's 2 and 4 year olds. Says he wishes he had time to be bored. Two weeks in Ibiza wasn't really the compensation prize he thought. So go and volunteer to watch some 2-4 year-olds...you will lose weight and NEVER be bored again.

To the one that said I was uneducated I’m very highly educated with a master’s in psychology so I’m very knowledgable with the ways of this world and it’s cultures. Try again please.
It’s just this world has always been an endless cycle of repetition that seems grating is all.
I know it won’t change but voicing it sometimes helps.

You are depressed. Get some therapy and probably medication. Things are very difficult now, but resilience is necessary for survival.

R26, formal education is not the same as being "educated." Educated means sophisticated. No Master's degree will make one knowledgeable to "the ways of the world and its culture." Try again.

You can't find anything in this entire world that isn't boring? You're boring. I don't know whether you need a shrink or a swift kick in the ass but what you have here is a failure of your own mind.
I've never been particularly thrilled with life but I am never bored. There is always something to read, something new to try, somewhere interesting to go. If you really can't be bothered anymore, time to check out.

I’m in need of a break in routine too. Every day, people at my office do dumb shit. The girl at the desk next to me does nothing but eat and talk about movies all day. One the other side of me is a loud moron who overreacts to everything . 25+ years in this profession and I’m about to get out. That keeps me going.
So do little weekend trips.
It’s not much. Maybe we are depressed. But do what you can.

Humans are carbon-based mammals, so all we do in life is to care for and maintain our bodies so that we can sustain our brains and consciousness. That’s it. That is all there is or ever will be. So being bored is logical enough.

Well thank you so much, r25! Although my words were meant to be encouraging, since I've been in a similar situation, you sure read me for filth! Just ironic isn't it, being told I was "lecturing" and being graded on my paragraph structure (yes, it's one paragraph, and it's long). You literally just lectured me like a schoolteacher.
R25, last year we had several threads that started like this, and other Dataloungers were actually really supportive of each other. People found out that others were having the same feelings & struggles, and it made them feel a bit better knowing they were not alone. Were you poking around and making red marks on every error or excessively long paragraph in those threads?
Well anyway.....I hope the OP can find support & maybe some new interest that might perhaps elevate their mood or make them forget about the outside world for a bit.
