Are you concerned that there's a lack of "meaning" in your life?

I read that meaning can be found by willingly bearing a burden. You can pick the burden. It doesn’t have to be big, just something around you that you can manage. Responsibility is the answer.

Yes. Maybe I will have a child to give my life more meaning. But I’m afraid the stress of a child will be too much on my relationship with my partner.

I developed schizophrenia about 3 yrs ago st age 57, I had a career in insurance, I walked everyday, was near my grandbaby, I was happy until I started hearing voices, I was put on antipsychotic meds, my baby moved to Florida and I had to quit work, now I’m surviving but life seems to have little meaning, I miss my happy go lucky self, I still walk but life seems so empty. Should we just accept it ? I’m glad you feel happy!

I think I understand. I too was confused in times with distress but know you can always just acept a freedom in prison. Its temporarry and not for always. And especialy show them you can clean like a OCD person when in care of idiots.

My daughter n grand daughter live in Florida only see once or twice per year but I have lots of other family, it helps but I wish I had a job or something,

My life is full of meaning. All due to God: Love, prayer, gratitude, almsgiving, volunteering, friendship, family, fun, interests, hobbies, study, reading, travel, movies, culture, music, coffee, cooking, yoga, meditation, Mass, Adoration, visiting friends.

I am working to add meaning to my life as a sza because I care about people and I have a mind to use that can be put to good. I believe I can make a difference despite my circumstances. I will be spending the rest of my life trying to make a difference, despite my illness.

Lately I had been feeling that way, so useless and unhappy. But I got a book from the library about the issues with psychiatry and it reminded me of why I am doing all of this. It gave me renewed vigor to continue.

Ironically the night of that exact same day the demons attacked me. Coincidence? No. But they will not drain me of my motivation!!

I feel like my life is meaningless but I’m a stay at home mom. My effort into raising the kids will probably pay off as they grow older and have greater successes in life. I will be able to have more personal goals when the kids get older. I do try to have a different goal everyday so I don’t melt into a stupor.
