It sounds like you discontented with life, perhaps what you lack isn't a better job, more money, or such but a felling of contentment. Start by reflecting on what you have in life, a house or apparment, cat, dog, kids, wife, a job, and, most importantly, life. Think of the times you wanted something thinking it'd bring happiness, then reflect on how that, when you got it, you grew dicontent with it wanting more. It's true, I see it in my own life and the lives of friends and family. Maybe instead of looking for a perfect job that doesn't exist, try feeling more gratitude for any job you have already. Uhg, I'm not sure if this makes sense. Just remeber, nothing will ever bring you lasting happiness unless you try to be content with it. Anyway, others can likely put things in better terms for you, just remeber, H.H The Dalia Lama says life's purpose is to be happy, and you can't be truely happy unless your content.
