Starting a new life somewhere?

Well where to begin I'm 24 years old and I'm bored and fed up with my life.

Over the last few months I've been feeling down and depressed my life has changed as my father left home and left me and my brother to look after our mum. I'm in a dead beat job that I hate and I feel as if the excitement has gone from my life.

Most of this has come about for 2 reasons my age and that my mates in my circle have nearly all settled down now. 3 have kids and married and my best mate is having a kid at 23. I would like to say I'm not jealous over them but it's made me realise that the friends I thought I knew when we had all these big plans and adventures we were going to do are no longer the same people.

I want to live my life to the full and see the world meet new people dance with hot women you know just the usual stuff lol. I've been contemplating leaving my home, my town, my family and friends and doing what I want to do which is live the life I want to live.

I know I've rambled on a bit but I don't know where to start or what to do. I feel bad wanting to leave all my friends but it's like you only live once and we're no longer on the same wave length anymore it's just all kids, mortgages and family's they want to do.

If I were to leave it would be to another city or country I've even been looking to find work on cruise ships or bar work and stuff.

It would be great to hear from people who have done it or who can relate on here but any answers very welcome.

    Bro I'm glad your admitting this because it's hard to admit it. I'm 21 and I feel as if all my friends left me because they too are getting married in serious relationships and I'm here having 1 night stands. I wouldn't run away from your problems but I would face them, you don't have to start over. Going away to somewhere new is starting over and it won't be fun. I would suggest you better yourself, maybe getting an education, switching jobs and/or joining the military service. It's hard because you have a family but there is always a way. I know I don't exactly answer your question but I would stay where you are because at least you know the area. If you go somewhere new then your gonna need to find new job, new job requires reliable transportation which costs gas. Your young, work hard, fail as hard as you can and fail fast so that by the time your 40-50 you have experience and you will be more wise and happier hopefully.

    There isn't much to life, you sleep > wake up > work > family

    Source(s): You have to find that one person that you want to share your life with..and time is ticking. If you fall for the wrong woman then she will only take your money and as soon as you get sick then she's gone and won't be by your side. Stand strong, and be with your family because they are the closest thing you have to a family
