The meaning of boredom

There are two types of boredom. One which was always there, just obscured, because one does not know what to do about it. When this type of boredom hangs around long enough, it becomes depression.

The other is a new found boredom. It means that something has been removed from your life. And this may be something to celebrate or something to grieve.

But alas, we all need to experience a bit of boredom from time to time. It’s a sign that restoration of the mind, body and soul has occurred. It’s a sign of great opportunity ahead because now there is space to pivot, permanently end something, or start a whole new chapter.
