This is somewhat of a fairly negative post, so let me apologize now.
I have a lot of things to be happy about, and I am really struggling to feel happy. I should be grateful for all of the blessings I have, but instead I keep thinking about how much of my life has been wasted on fictional goals and trying to find something that I stand out in.

I've got angst - the honest-to-goodness, existential, "why are we here?" kind. Two years of trying to shake it haven't worked - and have sometimes made me wonder if it's worth fixing at all. What do I do now? [more inside]

"When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful..." Help me get excited about the future. I'm watching the once-magical parts of the world turn into cold rationality, and I fear for my ability to enjoy life if this trend continues. [more inside]

Angst and melancholy aside, I persistently fear that I will never be able to happily integrate into society. I know I need help, but I can’t figure out how to overcome my negative emotions and in succumbing to them I only feed into my cycle of avoidance and disappointment. [more inside]

Where am I physically going to be in 2 million years. Say I am hypothetically buried in a suburb of Boston, MA tomorrow....where am I physically going to end up? Dissolved into the ocean? A couple hundred feet down in dirt? Some of my ashes might be part of the construction of another animal? Where will I be in 10 million years too. Guesses and educated guesses welcome.
