Losing interest in things that will normally make me happy.. - October 5th 2016, 05:22 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of death or grieving, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Is this the end for me? I'm sorta losing my enthusiasm for a lot of things... and I'm kinda broken.

Help.. I need comfort, tenderness and the knowledge that someone is here for me..

rant to me if there's anything!

Hey there,

I understand the feeling of losing interest in things that once made you happy. It's a bit of a crappy thing to feel yourself slipping futher away from those things, but it's definitely not the end for you at all! There are plenty of reasons why we may start to lose enthusiasm for things, but there's nothing to stop you attempting to rekindle that happiness and enthusiasm, through sharing these activities with people who make you happy, or taking a short break from them, and starting again a while later. On the other hand, try taking up a new hobby! You could find that you've simply grown apart from that particular area of interest and that it's time to eplore your other options. Maybe take up a whole new area of interest - start a new book or eplore new areas around where you live, start running or going to the gym, or even pick up a new craft and build on your abilities there!

Don't give up on yourself! It's a common problem, and I know it can feel really depressing to no longer find joy in things which you once loved, but perhaps it's the chance to start over and find joy in new things! Keep going, and keep your chin up!

Can you tell us a little more about what you're going through? That way our support and advice can be more in sync to your experiences.

I kinda am stil dealing with a broken heart due to the loss of my ex best friend due to a fallout which was my fault.. and because of that, my emotions are sealed.

I created a thread called "given up on life " which more or less kinda tells you about how I felt two months ago..

Ah okay, thank you for letting me know! I remember your threads, as I've replied to most of them if not all in the last two months. Given what you said in response to one of the user's replies, I thought that there was something else going on too.

I'm wondering what makes you think the user above's advice not covering the matter you're going through? I mean, that sounds like a response I could have given, so I just want to make sure I don't go off topic too.


At any rate, would you like to talk about what's been going on recently? Has anything changed for you? What have you been doing to cope? What has been working? what hadn't been?

Hey love.

I think this can happen when we feel sad, low or even depressed. I know when I feel any of these then I lose interest and joy in my normal hobbies like reading, watching a film, writing, going for walks and so on. So you say you've been heartbroken so I am assuming this is making you feel low which is then triggering you to not have interested in your normal hobbies. However sometimes activation before motivation is needed so this is where you carry on doing the things you have always done, and maybe the motivation to do them and joy from them will come soon after.

If you want to talk about how you are feeling please feel free to do so here. It's what we're here for. I do hope you feel better soon. In the meantime, never be alone.

Jessie

Thanks so much. Actually, I just feel kinda broken.. like I have no drive to do.. anything.

In-the-Way, actually the user's advice is sorta spot on. But I'm just currently experiencing despair.. as in I'm broken, and I'm no longer who I once was.. I'll try to fight, and I'm doing my best... Not many things are working.. I'm trying to find a consistent hangout buddy to kinda spend time with.. But as of right now, I spend every day trying to not finish myself off for a promise.. If it weren't for those promises, I would definitely be in the grave for some time..
