Where do I want to be in 5 years?

The answer is that I have no idea. I struggle with knowing where I want to be in one year or even next week. I don't mean where physically. I mean in terms of various aspects of my life.

The second session of my Managing Depression group was about increasing activity. Part of the "homework" was to brainstorm on this subject. I find it very difficult to know what I want. I think this is a big factor in my depression. I think that hope comes from having goals. Even though I was not having luck finding work, it was a goal. I gave up on job hunting because of the stress it was causing. I had failed to realize that job hunting had been my major goal. I am sure it is more complicated than that.

A lot has happened since I stopped job hunting. I am not sure it is as simple as restarting job hunting. I do have to review my options.


  1. I feel like I am going backwards rather than forwards. I finally finished my group. I feel lost much of the time. :(

    Today is a lovely late summer day but it is raining in my head!

  2. Hi I just ran into your blog and certainly hope you post more. I have a friend who is bipolar and the most loving and giving person there is. Thru conversations with her Im better able to understand her but reading blogs like this are even more helpful. So thanks!

  3. Dear Anonymous, Thanks for reading my post and thanks for the nice comment. I had frozen this blog but I will resurrect it as a pseudo diary.

    I am glad you have found the blog useful. Feel free to ask any questions via comments. I am always notified by email.
