When life has no meaning...


So, what do you do when it seems your life has no meaning?? How do you proceed through another day? How do you get out of bed, even? I know this experience. And I know how scary it is when there seems NO WAY OUT. And then what? How do you proceed with this vision of the world? And what if - to add to our challenge - we're also saddled with depression? What a smothering, crippling, state of affairs. And just what to do about it?


I did nothing...for years. And the experience simply ebbed and flowed in and out of my life like a dark tide - sometimes better, usually not, and often worse. Death crossed my mind sometimes, though I'm so glad I didn't do that.


Let's use this thread to talk about your own situation. Our situations. And see if we can find our way out - together, alone.

  • I didn't go to the desert this week... Emily and I needed to take care of some things together and I stayed home instead. I'm glad I didn't go...though part of me thinks I'm just rationalizing away my disappointment in not facing down my fears out there - as I always have fears "out there." My out there is always someplace I'm reluctant to go - though usually I go, often not as far or deep as I'd like...but I go. How far did you go this week or month? Did you push past the place you'd normally turn back? At what price or consequence? I'll have my chance again in another two weeks... I'll go far then, I think - though I never really know for sure. I'll go far then, I think - as far as the simple man I am can muster. #GoingAlone
  • The bullseye aim suggests there's a target, yet offers no promise we'll hit the mark. I'll strive for the aim without expecting more than my best possible result. In fact, I'll expect sometimes to utter fail the mark.

Going Alone was begun by Kurt Bell in an effort to help others understand and manage  the recognition of the apparent indifference of the universe to our well being, happiness or even our existence, and to find ways to make a good life in spite of this fact.
