Our expert says:
Sounds like you concentrate far too much on unrealistic dreams and magnifying the tedious of everyday life. ANd in my experience of people who win the lottery and suddenly GET the sort of life you've been wishing for, they often find it intolerable and quite soon burn out. We need reasons to get out of bed in the morning. And we don't enjoy the nice things in life when everything is "nice", because then "nice" becomes monotonous.
Maybe you have become depressed, but what you are describing sounds less like depression than a sort of fed-up-ness related to unrealistic expectations of how the world can be, and a lack o attention to what IS good and what could be made better about your current situation.
Why not see a good local counsellor for a proper assessment of yourself and your situation, and work on better prob lem-solving skills, and better skills at exploring ways of making life more rewarding for yourself ?
