    Help! My life is so pointless / boring

    Hello dear Psychoforum.

    I'm in my mid-16s now and my life seems so boring to me.
    I am now doing Fos Technique and I am losing the desire or motivation to learn.
    Work on an internship every day and I don't even learn anything for school and then there is still so much to learn. When I see other people .. strange example now .. Justin Bieber what a "great" life he has. Always doing something new, comes around a lot, in other words: experiences a lot and has a lot of money. Why don't I have that ?! it is stupid to say: he has it but why not me? ... but is it so? And then I sit here in front of my PC, knowing that I still have a lot to learn for school. At some point I will have my technical diploma and then earn mediocre money ... and that's it? I cannot be satisfied with that at all, or I cannot get motivation anywhere with this goal. If now comments come like: You are the smith of your happiness or Only you can make of your life what you dream of. How should I start?
    Everything is so difficult

    I ask for help
    LG Julez

    I think everyone is at one point in their life and completely normal. Do you really believe that Justin Bieber's life consists only of the advantages mentioned. I think about lost childhood, a lot of work, because nothing comes by itself. He couldn't just have a party and let himself go, because the next day there are sure to be quite a few appointments. There is a lot of discipline and restrictions involved in this job and I wouldn't want to trade a day. He can't just say, I'll stay in bed today. And having to say the same thing in every interview. In addition, we only ever get the highlights, his sad, doubtful or lonely moments are rarely reported. And the penalty is tough and many go under on the way there.
    It is important in your life that you look for a job that you really enjoy and that you enjoy doing every day. Those who know how to make something out of their talents and positive aspects are successful. So if possible, turn his hobby into a profession. Because nothing is more motivating than when you enjoy doing something and are also good at it. And if you are doing your Abitur and studying, you could at some point also be the boss or become self-employed and determine your own success and money. If you are very hardworking and disciplined. But if you don't feel like doing what you want to do now, you can leave it alone. Forcing yourself to do something all the time doesn't get very far. And by the way, I don't know if that's the case with you ... in front of the PC, nobody has made anything of their life. You wonder why you don't lead such a life ... what have you already done to make it this way?

    Yes a. That's true in front of the PC, you really don't achieve much.
    but I feel so lonely when I see what he has around him, for example, and at the moment every day is the same. You go to school when you come home you maybe do something with your friends and that's it. Hmm .. maybe it's just a strange time right now.

    What are your strengths? What are you particularly good at? What are you passionately interested in? What do your friends like about you? What would you like to become (achievable, no dream castles)? Where or what do you want to be in 10 years?

    Would you like a little insight into the negative aspects of the life of a professional musician?
    Ok, no, I'm not a star, but that's how I make my living.
    First of all, do you need tough discipline every day? School? No time...
    Practice ... practice practice practice ... 6, 7, 8 hours a day.
    Friends? few, if so, then all musicians.
    Constant physical overload, because you are burdened on one side.
    Rigorous teachers and many other people who rule over you.

    And if I now imagine the public relations that the boy has to do - stressful.
    To be watched at every turn.

    And do you want to know the most interesting things now? When I was around 16 or 17, I felt exactly the way you do now! Because making music has always been normal and banal for me.
    Set goals for yourself, sometimes build castles in the air! The main thing is that you think about where you would like to be.

    By the way: I love my job, that shouldn't mean that !! I've always enjoyed doing it. But I wanted to list the negative sides.

    LG, Kaja

    Setamer way you always look "up", or where you think someone is better.

    Honestly, you can be so happy that you don't live in a war zone or in a region where there isn't even enough drinking water, let alone food, school? What's this? Perspective on life? No way.

    Try to appreciate what you have, the glass is half full, not half empty. Even if you are not a "star" (I don't want to comment on that, because a lot has already been written) you have a lot more than many, many other people your age in the world.

    Wishing you all the best!
