Who Am I ?

Hi All.

I dont usualy post a lot here, read a lot though.

Recently iv been asking "who am i"
iv changed, im now 35, seems only yesterday my 2 sons were kids, now they are 14 and 16. the feeling of "them flying off" is in my thoughts right now.
the word "change" scares me. i know every parent out there goes through this, and has to face facts.

i am usualy outgoing, im a DJ, still am, also a Football (Soccer) Manager/Coach.

Lately, i dont know who i am. i stumble from day to day.
im well overweight, im lazy, fat and unhappy.

i have a perfect life. a lovely, georgeous, sweet, understanding caring partner. 2 superb sons, nice house, great dog, great job, nice car, etc, etc.

but im empty.
i cry a lot, feel alone, even though i am the most "unalone" person on the planet.

i want to start getting up earlier, losing weight, eating better, feel better, look better. i can go on.

have i just described everyone here, or am i alone here?

PLEASE !! i need advice, i need someone to talk to. i cant go to my Partner, i love her way to much to throw this at her.

i just want to talk to someone.
i am a Soccer coach, and my job is to motivate people, i do, i have won many things in the game as a coach/manager. why then cant i motivate myself.

Thoughts please folks.

Hi Shauny. you are not alone. dont exclude your partner from this as she will be the strongest power in your feeling better about yourself. I am suffering from ongoing depression and my husband is my complete rock even though I feel like a failure for having to lean on him so much. Good wishes.

Re: Who Am I ?

here ya bro. Im 26 now and I just feel like I woke up and ralized that I am not in highschool anymore. I feel like it was only yesterday that I was 18. I have been drinking and partying so much since highschool and through college everything just kind has been a blur. I receantly stop, exercising again, and focuses on getting my career going. It is amazing how fast life can go by and how lonley you can feel even when there is a bunch of people around. I dont know if we can talk about this here but to you have a realtionship with god? It seems like this stuff can happen when you lose sight with yourself and whom you are(child of god). I know that is what has help me change and get my foot back on track. Everyone has thier own personal beliefs so if that is not something you beleive in I would encourage you to Exercise a bunch, eat better, get some hobbies, maybe do some kind of yoga/meditation. Check out the book Power of Now, by eckhart tolle. I think what you maybe missing in life is a spirtual compenent.
