i need to find a hobby
      #257088 - 08/21/11 03:51 PM

i have been so wrapped up in everything thats been going on around me that im constantly doing things for everyone but myself, and im begining to realize i need to find something for me to do. it used to be going out and hanging around at the bars with my freinds, but thats old hat. pool and darts are to easy to get caught up in the drinking scene again. a person can only go out to eat so many times. reading is ok but not fulfilling to my mind. and i dont know where to begin with starting a blog. my only other hobby was work and thats not going anywhere fast. i would like to go back to school but its hard with all the things happening at home, i realize i need to do something for me, maybe thats my real issue, always feeling like im not going anywhere in my life, and i feel im at a dead end.
i know theres more in the world for me, i just have to seek it out.i do like coming here and helping people out where i can, but even that sometimes isnt enough, im not so into my own life i cant kep helping but i need a new challenge. i feel like im stagnate. im sure if i can find something meaningfull it will reflect on my home life getting better too.
i see how all the aspiration has left me since being diagnosed in 04, but just started to understand it fully. i truly do need a reason to feel like im contributing to others, and i often wonder if thats doing the right thing.
i hope i have helped everyone i speak to here in a positive way, i hope i can continue, even if i too sometimes need that same help from some of you too.
thanks for letting me into your lives, sometimes it makes perfect sence to me when i know what to say to you people, but sometimes its difficult to know ones own problems because were to close to see them. thanks again

What is wrong with you? Find a frigging hobby, whats the frigging problem? Its a shame you have to post on here to find a hobby. Maybe you should spent time away from this site and you will be able to find a hobby. Watch a movie, cook, go for a walk, buy a pet, anything. Just dont spend all your time on this site, it will depress you. Find something else to do. Go to a library and read a magazine for God's sake.

well it sounds as if you think i am writing to ask for a sugjestion for a hobby or just writing about getting a hobby. well it seems you dont understand what it is im doing while writing this. my aim was to tell those people here that i do converse with that a hobby is what im doing, therefor i wont be here as much as in the past. the fact i stated i was missing something, was only a way to say i need more than to just write here, and i was finding out what im looking for , to do just what it is i need to do for me.
so, looking back, i guess your not so knowledgeable about the people you like to spout off to, maybe you too ought to find a different place than here, because with your attitude, you wont find to many freinds, here or anywhere. maybe a new hobby for you would include knowing who someone is and knowing what is being said before you jump in and blab some sarcastic remarks, thinking you know the full context of what is being put forth in front of your eyes.have a good day anyway

I had felt the same way a few months ago. I have also had a chance to take a break from my "normal" life and remove myself to a quiet place, to ponder and reflect on my life. I, too, was just looking for a hobby as I thought it would bring fulfillment to my life. I discovered that fulfillment comes from loving oneself completely, and being OK with ALL the many accomplishments and contributions I HAVE made along this journey. Accomplishments are only those moments when we make a difference, no matter how big or small in someone's life. The hobby (one of passion) is a great thing to find/have but it is only 1 ingredient in this recipe of life. Take a moment to look turn around and look back and just see how really far you have climbed on this mountain. Sometimes we forget to do just that. All the best to you on your journey.

i can totally relate to what you are experiencing, i quit drinking and bars and do many of the things you wrote about, but there seems to be a hole in my life where i used to go to the bars. i wish i had an answer for you, but i know that sometimes we need to hear we are not the only ones that feel the way we do. hang in there!!!
