How Do You Get Out of a Life Rut?

||

Lately I’ve felt like things are just not coming together for me. Like, despite my best efforts, time has stopped and all of my actions have ceased to ignite a reaction. I am ineffective. No one loves me. I’m not a special unicorn. I don’t even have money to shop away my sorrows. Basically everything is terrible and I just want to go cry in the shower. #FirstWorldProblems galore up in here.

If I were to play psychiatrist with myself, I’d say I’m stuck in a classic life rut. Intellectually, I know things will get better, that something good is bound to happen, that I just need to give it time. (Blah blah blah.) But right now? Right now I’m stuck feeling sorry for myself.

Have you guys ever fallen knee-deep in a life rut? What have you done to shake this crappy feeling? I can’t figure it out and could use a little help.
