You know, part of this is being human and part of this is lacking the commitment to change anything about your life. I can be as you describe, but I choose not to be anymore.
I went through a couple of years of what proved to be pretty intense and rapid therapy with a great gal. I learned life skills, although I didn't see it that way at the time and I only say it that way now for lack of a better phrase. Only I can change my life. Only I can make things better for myself. A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.
I have a family and what is called a full time job (not by hours, by production), and I am going back to school in January to get more education (I have actually just taken a quarter off, I have been at it a while). Even though I am not just wild about my choice of career, not in my head, but in my heart I know it is right. I know this is the right course for me to take. I will finish my Master's and hope to be starting my PhD in a little more than year from now. I know that I am NOT a quitter and I know that I want to change my life, so stick to this, I will.
I don't think it is boredom, just a lack of commitment to any sort of change.
