I'm in that "trying to figure out what to do with life" phas

[965]

I'm in that "trying to figure out what to do with life" phase, at 30. I went to a mental health advocacy group Monday which turned out really well. One of the facilitators made a passing remark about a relative with a mental illness that went mostly into remission. She shrugged and said, "Somehow he made it." I know it had nothing to do with me and that they're simple words, but for some reason I found them inspirational and wrote them down as if they constituted a quote. Does anyone else on here have this hope for their life? Or even for little day-to-day things? I feel that I find the day-to-day things (eg coming home on the subway, not smarting off at my boss) more difficult than do most people.

@kisobel I really enjoyed googling that quote and ending up in Wikipedia, reading, "On Barbara's wedding night, Billy is captured by an alien space ship and taken to a planet light-years away from Earth called Tralfamadore. The Tralfamadorians are described as seeing in four dimensions, simultaneously observing all points in the space-time continuum." I am tripping the **** out, man!

@natrldisasstr I hope this comes across as funny as it seems in my head ... If not, please flag it and have it removed. I feel like everything in life is so difficult for me too, even taking a shower a lot of the time. But I just had this thought of how many people in prison would say, "I find not committing major crimes more difficult than do most people." So I guess we're more on top of things than we feel!

@baabaa I totally agree. Admittedly I have to force myself to get in the shower. One guy in that group (who is a whole other story!) volunteers at a well-known mental health facility and has met/assessed others with BPD. He says I'd made greater strides than I would think. That was encouraging to hear. It's just HARD 90% of days and exhausting. PS I would not flag any of your comments :)
