Not really sure who I am.

I'm not sure where to begin with this but I guess I'll start by saying I don't really have any sense of identity. My life feels empty and meaningless like I have no purpose. I want to clarify that I'm not depressed (although I have suffered short periods of depression in the past) I just feel like I have n idea who I am and how I became this person. Not in a bad way, that I'm ashamed of who I am or that I wish I could be someone else. It just feels like someone's torn a chapter out of my life and I've just been on autopilot for the past year or two. In the spirit of full disclosure I have (not) had a casual interaction with several different drugs in the three years previous. I'm not nor have I ever been addicted and have been doing less and less recently and I think I'm basically off them for good now. I wouldn't say that they are the main reason for my issue but they probably factor in. I am at sixth form and have such a lack of motivation (because I don't have any specific goal in life other than wanting to find a girlfriend get married and start a family) I have no idea what I want to do so I am not sure what I'm working towards. I can't motivate myself at all, to do anything, revise, coursework, go out and find a job. So I basically don't try so I can't fail. No matter how hard I try and change my motivation is at an all time low and theres basically no chance of me doing anything that gives long-term benefits rather than short-term benefits. Yet I'm always worrying about the future. So I basically have the worst parts of both someone who lives in the moment and someone who plans ahead and none of the good parts. I just need to find myself and figure out my passion but I don't know how to get the motivation to do so. I'm finding it increasingly hard to find things I am genuinely passionate about. I'm even losing faith in my love life. But as I said, I'm not depressed, I have my bad moods and my good moods where I'm perfectly content. I just don't really know what to do with my self. It almost feels as if I'm just the audience in my life and I'm just going through the motions whilst watching the events play out in other peoples lifes, like I'm actually not even the main character in my own life, just a bystander (I'm not a particularly central person in social interactions anyway). I hope someone can help me by giving me some advice on how I can figure out who I really am and maybe I can sort this mess out. Thanks or taking the time to read this and hopefully help me out.

I don't know it is true or not that you might be suffering from the worst situation rather i would say that it is the bad phase of your life in which you need to keep much patience.

General disease is typically a bad dream to have treated at
an occupied clinic, which is the reason it is shrewd to go to a more diminutive
dire forethought focus.
