Well pal, I feel your pain. I work in an office as well, and it's pretty much mind numbing pushing paper and dealing with the zombie general public
all day long.
I used to think that eventually I would learn to "enjoy" my career, or at least just resign myself to my fate , and stop kicking and screaming. The
truth is, the feeling you are decribing just grows day after day. With responsibilities and other people depending on me, there's no way out!
The only way I can deal with it is to do something for myself each day. I have other interests that keep me motivated. I look forward to the things
that make me happy, and some balance is achieved.
If I were 18 again, and did not have any attachment, I would not make the same mistakes I made. I thought a career, a house, the proverbial white
picket fence and a family were the ticket. It's a trap. A divorce, and losing everything brought me back to the beginning, and added a different
slant to my perspective. Ten years later, and ten years wiser I suppose.
Now I don't have much, and it suits me well. My advice is to enjoy your life, be free (but responsible), and pursue your dreams.
Without your dreams, there's nothing worth living for, so figure it out and take the first step.
