I'm 44 and divorced 2 years ago. My life is not working. Nothing seems to bring me any enjoyment anymore. I feel stuck. I am no longer interested in activities that use to bring me enjoyment.
I was unable to have sex the last year of my marriage and honestly didn't want to. I found out just before it ended that my testosterone levels were very low making functioning almost impossible for me. My urologist said I would regain my ability which I have.
Although the treatment has helped some I still feel like I'm lost and living a life without purpose. Don't know what to do. Noel's answer
If you have read the Men's Stories
page you will know you are not alone.
I recommend a couple of books: Crossing the Soul's River
by William O. Roberts, and Balancing Heaven and Earth
by Robert Johnson.
One of the symptoms of a midlife transition is feeling lost and without direction. I went through a period of 'wandering in the desert' for five years in my early fifties, where I had lost interest in things I used to be passionate about, and could not think of anything that would stir my passion. I was in a mild depression, and nothing seemd to excite or even interest me.
My suggestion is you read some of the other books I recommend on my Your Life Mission
page, pray and/or meditate, and take heart in knowing that this too shall pass. I am in my sixties now, and enjoying life more than ever!
