I’m not saying the casual profile check, I mean that level of stalking where you browse through months and years’ worth of pictures and posts of someone you think has a cool life.

There are always a few people who seem to be living it up, and you find yourself practically living in their news feed, waiting for any update and then marveling at how cool their lives are.

Flicking through their happenings give you a feeling that it’s as close you could get to that kind of life.

You Think Of Missed Opportunities

This doesn’t count just those things that might have happened a week ago, you think back to years and decades previously where you point out the moment where things could have been different.

You think of how your life might have been had you not gone with that decision on that day. You also lump together several opportunities you had but never took a chance on.

There are times when you see someone who got a similar opportunity you once had and rue how they’ve made it work while you didn’t.

Your productivity takes a big hit at this point but you have no care for it; your mind has wandered far away to a distant land in your imagination. Before you know it, these daydreams become far too frequent.

These daydreams don’t have to be the same thing either, you can even start dreaming about the most random of things, as long as it’s nothing like what you have in real life.

You Want to Quit Day-to-Day Life

You start wondering how a life of adventure might be; you could do that, couldn’t you – is what you start telling yourself.

The idea of dropping everything without explanation sounds like a hopeless dream, but still a prospect that sounds lovely.

You Feel Down or Sad Most of the Time

You can’t be discontent if you don’t feel sad. This happens as a general mood rather than a burst of sad feelings. Whatever you do as part of your normal routine carries these bouts of gloominess,

It’s not only the things you do, it’s also the things that you think of doing. The activities that should be making you feel excited only make you feel down. Not much matters because you don’t have any enthusiasm for it.
