Our expert says:
Many of us find, especially at times, that we wonder what it's all about --- its a natural but essentially philosophical and spiritual question. But your description of how you feel very strongly suggests that you are seriously Depressed and in need of treatment. DO see a good local shrink for assessment ( be frank with him about how you have been feeling ) and take his/her advice on treatment. If you happen to feel convinced that your sense of hopeless is entirely realistic and not related to depression --- then test this by doing as I said, and if after cooperating for some months with appropriate treatment your feelings are unchanged, then maybe you'd be right to consider your existential dilemma the primary problem. I am certain that you have a purpose on this planet, even if you can't see that at present. From where I sit, I can't see Durban, but I have excellent reason to believe that it exists, and I would find it if I travelled in the right way and direction.
