I think the question you should be asking is, โ€œWhat is causing me to feel this?โ€ Are you putting this thought in your head, or is another? Are there any obstacles in your way? Or you could take a diffrent approach. Has there been any stress in your life? Any big changes? How long have you felt this way? Break down your question with questions, and then you can find the answer ๐Ÿ˜

It's possible to feel upset and lost even when you have good things going for you. You can try some good mindfulness techniques as well as challenging your thoughts!

First of all its completely normal to feel this way. Us human beings always need something to achieve, something to live for. That's why some people used to say "I don't wanna live forever". You are not doing anything exciting in your life. You better have a social life, spend 75% of your money on experiencing things, create a goal for yourself, make your life interesting, travel alone, travel with your friends. In summary you should feel this way because you need some interesting stuff to happen in your life, and you're really lucky to have enough budget to travel
