Am I Leading A Boring Life?

I’ve been told many times that my life is boring and for all those times, I tried to argue and reason out. My life isn’t boring just because you have no idea how I am living it. Ofcourse I never said that, but I was so sure that they are only thinking that my life’s boring because they got no clue. I am not obliged to let them know how I am enjoying my life. They are not meant to judge whatever I do in the weekend. It is none of their business and it is absolutely so rude of them to tell me that my life is a lot less enjoyable than theirs. I was holding on to that thought – until someone very close to me told me that. So right now, I am quite convinced that I am living an extremely boring life. And I am both pissed and sad to slowly realize that everyone who’s telling me that I lead a boring life, could be right.

On weekdays I go to work and get home directly. On weekends I make sure I get enough sleep, read a book, go out with my boyfriend on Saturday night, go out with my family for a short Sunday dinner and then it’s Monday once again. It worked quite well for me, but if you notice that routine, there is no mention of any friends – because I think I don’t have one, and I guess that’s what made them all think that it’s boring.

There were Saturdays when my boyfriend and I go out, and after going out, he’d go out with his friends. There were Saturdays as well when I tag along with him, but that rarely happens. There is this one Saturday when I hung out with his new friends from work. I was thrilled since it’s the longest roadtrip we had, but I was suddenly got in a sour mood when one of them said that my boyfriend mentioned to them that I have a boring life. I let that statement go so I won’t ruin the night, but then during another conversation I mentioned something and another said, “Oh, so that’s why he thinks your life is boring.” I pretended I’ve let that go, but until now, after days since that night, I still think of that and rethink my activities in life.

I know that as a millennial, I should do something fun. But I also know that how I live my life isn’t based on someone else’s judgement. I know that I shouldn’t let their opinion define me – although right now I am already thinking of ways to have a life that’s less boring.

There was one night when the rain poured so hard, and i didn't want it to stop. Weird, because i was afraid and amused by the sound of the rain and thunder. The sound of it made me less alone that night. The next day i woke up to find my collection of journals soaked. I keep it near the window to make sure no one could read it. The writings can still be read but i was devastated by the damage. I wanted it preserved but i don't want it published. Still amused by the rain but afraid of the wrath it could bring to my journals, i created this blog.

  1. Regardless of what people’s opinion of your life, I think your life can be defined by what you call it. Change is good and people can also bring the need to make a few changes to our notice. But I think it does not mean you have to make the changes the way they prescribe.

    I think what I am trying to say is I don’t think you are boring although we can all make do with some changes here and there .

    maybe you should write down new activities you need to include in your lifestyle as well as how you plan to achieve them and get to action.
