Brief Answer: Idle mind is devils workshop Detailed Answer: Dear Welcome to XXXXXXX We understand your concerns I went through all your details. I see that you are 22. Young man, your thoughts are the cause of your worries. I feel that you are living a mechanical life, without ambitions, without friends, love, affection etc. You need to change that first. Life is always boring if you live monotonously. You must have been told by your teachers and parents to plan life. Do it now. We live out of some compulsions. Then live life happily and purposefully. 1. Learn to enjoy life. Compulsively laugh at small things. It should help positive thinking. 2. Make as many friends as possible. Initially it may feel difficult. Later you should enjoy. 3. Ask yourself- Am I satisfied with current job? If no, why? 4. Do you like your self? 5. Any bad habits must be spelled out and well understood. Remove it. 6. Eating nutritious diet gives you energy. Games and sports spend that energy. Then you get hunger and eat more. EXERCISE. 7. Everybody living in this world are like you. Only difference is they have purpose in life, you don't. Bring purpose in your life. God has given you life not to get upset. But to be happy. Be happy. Happiness is everywhere. You have to just find it. Hope this answers your query. Thanks. Good luck. Dr. Anand
