I want to start out by saying I completely understand what you are feeling. The curse of life is the curse of want, and when you can’t find something you want you feel empty and without purpose. You don’t know what you want yet, but something will come.

I like Filip’s advice. I also want to add something to that. Perhaps you have wanderlust? You dream of being free. Perhaps you and your love should take a vacation at some point and just drive? Go to the Grand Canyon if you’re in the U.S. or if you’re feeling exceptionally adventurous, go skydiving.

Sky diving is the closest I have come to feeling ultimate bliss. Orgasm, love, payday, etc., NOTHING that I have experienced in my life can compare to the euphoria you get from jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. That is my ultimate life advice. For several months after that, whenever I felt down on myself I would remember the free fall and grin from ear to ear. It is really good for you psychologically and surprisingly safe. Overcoming that fear of plummeting to the earth will leave you feeling euphoric for several days.

If not skydiving, do something out of your comfort zone. Push your limits. You may find something you love by doing so!
