Life didn't turn out the way I expected

I wonder if there is a word is for this deep sadness that settles in knowing that you never will have what you really want in life, after all the effort. It's beyond hopelessness, it sears your heart and makes you know your place as insignificant and expendable. How do you move on knowing you're a caged animal that will never have its freedom? I don't think you do.

  • This is what I feel. Glad to know someone else knows the pain of knowing you will never be truly happy in life.

  • Glad to know there's people out there who know this pain. (Not poster, just your friendly depressed dood.)

  • Existential depression.

  • I like it, thanks.

  • You too. I have lived a life of mediocrity and under achievement. My wife does not love me. Kids are ok.
