I was disappointed that it it went badly with a cute girl. Things are kind of shitty at home too. Of course things gets exaggerated when you're really drunk, which I was last night.

I and have been unable to work sincerely on anything new for a very long time, because I'm sinking all my time into one project I've been chopping away at for about two years. I can't give it my full attention because I have to do other work full time to feed and shelter myself. I have no serious assurance it will be particularly well-received when it's finished. This is still what I love doing. But I'm learning "love" doesn't produce automatic satisfaction.
I have been reduced to "lurking" status for quite a while now; I only occasionally come here and browse, and when I do, I find myself (to my own annoyance and self-disappointment) grumbling, "Who are all these new kids? Where did everyone go?" Then I feel dissatisfied with the community as a whole, asking things like, "Why is everyone in their midtwenties, probably white, and male?" But I am all of these things, so I can't ever be part of the solution. And, anyway, there's nowhere better to go.

All that depressing rant to say:
I know I'm not the only one out there feeling disconnected and unfulfilled in his work. Everybody, everywhere: Keep working. The future is always different; I feel time and change are inextricably glued together. And if you're at the bottom, "different" means "better". But to get to different you have to work.
Or maybe you have to work because it's all you know anymore. But there's pride in that, too; you still have a choice, and if you're choosing to keep pushing forward, you're doing the best possible thing -- best of two is still best.
Either way, you're winning. Not prettiest. Not happiest. Winning. And in this life, little league advice from fathers has cut short its application: Winning is what matters. Because it's not people with feelings vs. people with feelings. It's those "person vs. environment" and "person vs. self" struggles you remember from fiction analysis in school. We're all "person". We're winning. It's enough.

So after my dad decided to leave my mom and we have been living in the house while they are "resolving" this mess. My mom is claiming my dad have had an affair for like a year which is very likely. I haven't spoken to my dad for like 2 months because I haven't felt like it and my mom really don't want me to contact him. Now he is going desperate and is trying to force us out of the house by contacting a lawyer and is suing my mom for a bunch of money. I guess I have been depressed for the past 6 months, I haven't had much contact with my friends and I don't have a job so I rarely leave the house but I do exercise often so that is stress relieving. I don't know what to make of this mess.

I don't know what to make of this mess.

Sorry you're in such a difficult situation.

This would be my first advice to keep in mind: it's not your fault. You might be old enough to not be feeling this sort of guilt much. But if such guilt does creep into your emotions, please try to remember that the conflict that is causing you trouble is between your parents.

A good friend of mine, who has been doing marriage and family consoling for decades, gave me this advice. Support your mom but don't completely abandon your dad forever. Who knows where your life will lead to in the future.

I would also add another piece of advice that was once given to me by a friend when I was going through tough times. Channel your problems into something creative, and give yourself daily goals that are achievable and reach them.

my parents got divorced when i was 4 or 5 and i never felt like it was my fault.

anyway using work to distract yourself is probably a good idea for the short term but in my experience it can be a double edged sword. sometimes it gives you a temporary rush but once you're done you end up feeling even worse than before.

imo the most important thing is to have someone to talk about your feelings with.

so yeah, hang in there Smiley

My uncle just died, at 57. Very abruptly.
I'm not really sad. Just kind of off-balance. Head's fuzzy.
Suddently acutely aware of how old my parents are.
So it goes.

So sorry, Hangedman. Sad My dad just turned 58 today. I don't know how I'd be able to handle something like that.

My deepest condolences.
