How is it that I am in the best physical shape of my life but still horrifically depressed?

How is it that I am in the best physical shape of my life but still horrifically depressed? I eat well, I get a decent amount of sun, I cycle and swim every so often, I lift most days of the week, I read books that interest me, and yet I can't do anything about this gnawing hole inside of me. It simply hurts to exist

    I don't know. Struggle with it myself sometimes. I concentrate on spending time with my parents (they're super old) and planning long motorcycle trips to try and capture a feeling.

      i ended things after we spent an entire summers day laying in the grass and she said she didn't want anything long-term, it felt like a gutshot, even typing this i can feel that same sensation. Once they start saying things like that its already over

      Unironically you need God.

      Second this.
      Getting closer to god really helps. Gives life purpose and hope.

      How do you connect to God if you never really felt his presence?

          I was raised religous, but I never felt connected to any of it. I really don't think there is a point to anything

              Dang that sucks man. I'm sorry. I suppose you want somerhing long term? i guess youre young so this will not be the last girl. Maybe try not to get too soon into relationships. Not before you and your prtner know where this is heading.

              >I suppose you want somerhing long term?
              I did. now I dont know if I even want to attempt going after female companionship, why bother if its doomed to fail

            Try reading the bible. Proverbs is really cool. I would suggest you read through it and note some you like in particularly. Psalms is also really nice. Especially psalm 51 gives you the feeling that god cares for you.
            Also before you read, try praying. Even if it sounds dumb just try it. Just tell god whats on your heart and be concrete what you need from him and how you want him to help you.

        National forests and parks are good. Just me, my bike, and beautiful, lonely roads for days on end. I like mountains mostly because there are none where I live. There's a kind of mental and physical exhaustion that quiets the mind and settles the soul, and that's what I chase. Short trips give me a taste. Proper vacations with day after day on the road puts me there

          Symptom of our late-stage civilization. This guy has the best idea. Find a way to stop thinking about this abrasive modernity - through physical exhaustion.

        Pray the rosary. I kid you not. You can find how to do so online. It’s life changing.

    Do you have friends, anon? Do you spend time with people who you can talk to about your hobbies and interests? About the ups and downs in your life? I'm in a similar boat to you, and that's what I think the root of my problem is.

          One in particular I went to high school with shares a similar sentiment, we both got really badly depressed and needed counseling even into the early college years but that sickness seems to have persisted until now (age 22), to varying degrees over the years but its always been there and always will be I think

            I wish I could give you more than empty platitudes, but you have to keep putting yourself out there. Go outside, join clubs, meet people, etc. You've still got a lot of time ahead of you, but it only gets harder to meet new people the older and more jaded you get. Don't waste your 20s wallowing in your depression like I did.

      all psychologists are quacks, they simply medicate and repeat the same drivel over and over until your mental sedatives kick in and you have no choice but to obey

    Welcome to existential dread anon! It's ok, you'll get through it. Life will be very difficult to navigate, but existential philoshopy could work for you. It emphasies that you, the individual, are solely responsible creating meaning in your life. Best of luck in finding that meaning.
