That’s inherit to being human. Everyone pretty much feels the same things. Its just that no one really openly talks about it because they think their feelings/problems are unique, which they usually aren’t.

Human + Society = Roller coaster of emotions.

Yep everyone does at some time. So many people have felt this way they even made a word for it so you can describe it.

I always feel despair when I am filling up the empty gas tank on my 40 gallon truck tank. But seriously, as in Frankl’s book (Man’s Search for Meaning) has a lot to say about happiness. It is a relative thing. Don’t we all enjoy happy moments and dread moments of despair?

Stephen, are you young? Despair is normal. Don’t worry about it. And don’t ever
take action based on this feeling. It will pass. Then it will come back. It’s like
sleeping: you have to do it or you can’t live. Don’t let it become the focus of your life.
And as time passes it will happen less often. I promise.
