What's the Point?

Married 18 years, 2 beautiful kids, a smart, sexy talented attentive loving wife. How does someone like me come off feeling like it's all just a hollow chocolate bunny? Sweet and inviting outside, empty inside. Narcissistic, instant-gratification generation, too selfish, midlife crisis at 52...check all those boxes. I don't expect anyone to sympathize with me. But I'm dying inside and feeling like I want to move out and live alone and take chances and break free.

  • I felt the same way, and separated from my wife for a year to live alone. In retrospect, it wasn't a bad thing, because I was able to get my head back together and think about what I needed to live a fulfilling life.

    You might consider taking up a new hobby or possibly change careers or something. It will make life "new" and give you a whole new set of challenges.

  • ^Amazingly original post. It really isn't I mean really really isn't.

  • Because you've been regimented. Find something "outside the box" at achieve, something totally new and unexpected. I recommend incest - get something out of those kids.
