    Hello friends,

    It feels like don't know what to do in my life, and I don't have any identity. It feels like I am lost in my life.
    I dont mean about profession or studies here.

    I have this desperate craving to know myself, But when I look at myself, I don't feel this is me. I get so angry for no reasons most of the time. And, no matter what, I feel like running away or jump off a bridge most of the times.
    The odd part is my feelings are not associated with things going on in my life, its not like I lost something or anything bad happened and that's why I want to run away or die.

    And, it feels like I am already dead and looking at people enjoying, crying, playing, etc. Although I do all of those things with my family, but it feels like i am pretending to be happy & pretending to cry.

    I need some psychic support. Please suggest me some way. And don't be hurtful in your replies.

    Thanks,
    - Hersal Gibs.

    Psychic and spiritual bullshit won't help you. It's a load of horseshit. You sound clinically depressed, and should talk to a professional, and maybe consider an SSRI to help you through the lull. Praying and thinking will do little more than waste everyone's time.

    "I'm sad, and I don't know why?" seem's to be an occasional human condition.
    I went through a fairly intense depression after I quit smoking. Fortunately I understood the source(withdrawal) and was able to "ride it out".
    If you are feeling suicidal, then certainly you should immediately seek professional help.
    If you're merely having a bit of an existential quandary, then I recommend spicy foods and long walks.
    I am not an adherent to, nor a believer in, any spiritual system. But I think the Buddhists might have something with their theory of the impermanence of all things.

    Think back to when you were last happy. What was happening at the time? What has changed since then?

    If you can't remember having been happy, then perhaps it's time to seek professional help. Placebo 'treatments' like spiritual healing won't cut it.

    Otherwise, like Giant suggested, take up walking or some other form of exercise. Consider a healthier diet. Spend more time with people you like. Try a new hobby.

    might i also add:

    try Cognitive Therapy. it's from psychology and basically the idea is that when you experience a negative or irrational emotional response, you write it down. after the heat of the moment, maybe a couple days if needed, you look at what you wrote down and ask if that feeling is truly representative of you, why you think you felt that way, and what other ways you could have felt in the same situation.

    slowly you just add to your own heap of self-recognition. essentially, you work on retraining your responses by selectively filtering your responses. it doesn't work wonders in the short term, but can illustrate where you are so that you can think about where you would like to be.

    it's just another form of conditioning. but considering how screwed-up socialization leaves most people, you might as well re-condition your behaviours.
