When I was a teen compared to now in my mid twenties, I cared far more about making my hobbies into my career (which I've accomplished), about finding meaning in the world, about learning and challenging myself etc. Now it seems like all I care about is getting laid and finding a wife to have kids with and live in the countryside.

I'm miserable because of it. I would love to have a family but I'm not in a financial situation to start one, and figure I should be enjoying my twenties working on my career and striving instead of worrying about a family, which I can do when my 30's hit. I also feel like my brain has deteriorated, I can barely concentrate on books, rarely have the drive to challenge myself. And if I'm dumb and unsuccessful (which I will be if this keeps up) I'm not going to be the father I want to be anyways.

Any help on how I can get myself back on track like I used to be? Pls help.

stop posting on 4chan, watching porn, playing video games, doing drugs, drinking, and any other nasty vices.

exercise, meditate, eat clean, and spend every day working on your goals and improving yourself.

if you're not willing to do this , then don't complain.

I'm not the one complaining about my life. and I use 4chan time as a reward for getting work done, don't sit around all day being a dink.

yeah, growing up is hard. look at old men, they don't do Jack shit. inspiration and excitement will come and go.

I was thinking about this today actually. I'm 26 and I don't work hard to better myself. I'm not sure i ever did. Depression kind of ruled my early 20s. But, I do things that I enjoy and I think I look over those things when I think about how much I waste my time. I play music and exercise and learn stuff every once in a while but I'm not writing operas, running marathons, and reading thousand page books. And I don't have to because I'm having (or at least trying to have) a good time. Maybe I'll get rich and successful maybe I wont. whatever. most people die unrecognized and with dreams unfulfilled. I guess I'm just not the kind of person to break my back to make it in this world. not a bit deal. A huge part of growing up that I know I have problems with is truly accepting who I am and who I may become and all the negative that comes along with that. but also the positive side of that. Don't spend your life being disappointed in who you are because everyone else is too. Except for like Elon Musk. maybe he's a self loathing bastard who knows.

The thing is m8, what even is 'making it'? There are people that sacrifice so much for something (say, money), and you step back and realise that in 'not making it' you kind of have a world's worth more of freedom.

I saw an IG post recently of a man and woman with their three children, with the caption sating that he's 23 and by now most people haven't even moved out of their parents house. "Nice" I thought to myself, "But not everyone has such a clear start in life, not everyone can basically walk into your lifestyle, and not everyone can afford to have a professional photographer take pictures of your dumbass family so you can boast about it online."

Not sure what I'm getting at but, if you have to break your back to make it, then you're not really making it by my standards. A lot of people have things handed to them and act like it's through their divine will that it occurred. Then there are us that can see through that.

Finding a wife to have kids with and live in the countryside is a bit like saying "well I'm tired of thinking, I want a simple answer to things right now". You could probably use a break or a change in your life in one way, shape, or form. Try not to feel so negative, your brain hasn't deteriorated, you're just stagnating a bit. It's kind of normal in mid-to-late twenties. I'm like you, 27, kind of want to find a nice girl so that I can settle, but that shit takes time. There are a few girls I like, but I'm not really in a rush to claim them right now because that's just not really what I'm in for. No rush, basically.

Allegedly, around your 29th birthday Saturn is in the same place that it was when you were born. It's kind of a sign that, if you haven't done what you need to do by the time it passes, it will really destroy things for you (one way or another) when you get to the next cycle. Not sure I buy it but worth a mention.

if you find what you like, working hard is enjoyable. kicking back after a day of getting shit done is way more fulfilling than living in a constant state of hedonism. there's a reason everyone on 4chan seems to hate themselves despite the fact that all they do is shitpost and masturbate (ie "true freedom").
