There is nothing like marriage for two who love one another.

I Need To Take A Break

Have you ever felt like you’re not getting better socially and psychologically? The feeling of getting stuck in a hole, not even capable of helping yourself out?

During my college years, I used to feel like everyday is a lesson for me. Everyday I’ll be meeting new faces. And that I’ll be a part of something beneficial to others and myself. I’ve been selfless. I like helping out people. I love joining non-profit organizations to do some voluntary services. I like taking in huge responsibilities. And once I release a word, I’ll keep it in mind and act accordingly. I’m always mindful of how I talk and interact with people. Trying to avoid hurting anybody.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying I used to be an angel or anything like that. I just used to be conscious of my actions. But now, I don’t even realize that I’m already raising my voice while I talk. Or even be sensitive to how people around me reacts. It’s like I could not care much of how the world revolves. I feel like I’m getting colder inside. My days became a boring routine. I sleep around 3AM or after Fajr prayer, around 5:15 in the morning. Then wake up to prepare myself for work around 11 or 12 noon. I’ll just take a quick lunch and rush to work at quarter to 2. My work will go on until 10 at night. My dad picks me up from work and we would go home together, arriving home half an a hour before 11. And it goes on like that for 6 days in a week. On my day offs, I’d be staying home doing my laundry or go out and maybe attend events hosted by close relatives.

You might say my life is a boring shit. But what else can I possibly do? I blame my working hours. I’m awake when the whole world sleeps. I’m at work while people are having fun. My social life is deteriorated. Sometimes I feel like a loner. I don’t wanna be alone but I kinda don’t mind anymore. At times where I’m having a chat with my office mates, it seems that I have nothing else to share. There’s nothing interesting about my life that is worth sharing. And if there is, it will definitely be my past life. I don’t know. Maybe my heart needs a cleansing session. Or maybe I need to take a break from my work for a week and see how it will change my mood. Or maybe I need a company that will remind me to be grateful everytime. Because really, as of this moment, I don’t believe in myself anymore. I’m not being productive enough. I need to detach myself from this boring scenario and get a life. Maybe go on travel and forget about my work for awhile.
