I am now 40 years old, I am a gay male who is single and pretty much a good friend, brother, and son. I loved life for years in my thirties and now I feel lost and hopeless about where my life is going. I wake up with no purpose and feel what is the point? I can not stand my job and the people I work with are always down and there is just no positive energy anywhere I turn. I have looked at web sites and have tried the secret and Listen to Dr. Wayne Dyer talk on and on about feeling good and what to do about it. And it sinks in and I get it for about a week and then the real word sucks me right back down. I have my good days but most of my time is spent wondering if I am going to be single for the rest of my life and will I ever meet the guy I am going to be happy with and that can love me? I have issues with my body I am tall and thin except for my gut and that makes me so upset. This all seem to have started with a car accident I had a year ago it took me out of all of my activities, working out and just general being with friends. I am better physically but I just can not seem to find myself again. I am just letting life pass me by I feel, and I want to get back into it!! I get feeling better for about a day and then someone can just pull me right down again so I think that is why I stay away from crowds. I know I am super sensitive and I need a thicker skin for sure. So how can I get it back what can I do to bring good people into my life? I need a new job one that makes a difference in peoples lives something that makes me feel good to go to work every day a new outlook on life I just feel so stuck that its making me feel crazy and think crazy thoughts and I do not want to think like this at all. Help me with any insight you may have I am at my end with this and can not keep living in this way.
