All of us have some inner fears and hurt that we don't want to look at.
So we repress it, try to keep it covered up.
But like distant noise, we hear the whispers, and fear that it will rise to the surface where we have to face it.
So we try to keep busy so that we don't have to face our inner issues.
Now, the stronger that fear/pain is, and the less self-esteem we have, the more we NEED the distraction.
And when there is not enough distraction, we get restless .. antsy ... and we call that "boredom".
I got bored in my teens, even into my 20's. But as my self-esteem and confidence and self-acceptance started to grow, I became less and less bored.
You will too.
But you need to get up and go out and DO things that challenge you and make your life rich.
And you need to find something you can learn to be good at and pursue that.
And MOST of all, you need to stop focusing on yourself and learn to care about others and do things for others (volunteering is a good start).
All these things lead into relaxing about who we are, and that is the start of learning how to be happy.
And not getting bored.
ANYTHING can be interested if we WANT to find out what is interesting about it.
I mean, if SOMEONE likes it, then there is something there that can be liked . .and it is up to YOU to explore and discover what that is.
I was bored to death with football, but once I learned to understand it, I came to enjoy watching it .. in fact, my husband and I bought season's tickets and went to all the games.
There is no excuse for boredom.
