I'm sick of my current life. It's mostly my mindset and actions. I spent most of my time wasting time playing video games and watching pornography.. and now I want to change

Leaving the past in the past.

I've been meditation with a 5 min timer the past few days and it's sort of hard now but a while ago, I was doing 15 minutes so I'm taking it day by day.

On top of that I quit my job after two years, I'm a hard worker but I left because I was treated unfairly.

I'm hoping to find myself, find my passion and look for another job. I applied at other retail store today but who knows if I'll ever get a call. I may work for a few months then probably join the military: Air force/Navy.

I remember reading something about people look outside for things, such as materialistic things for happiness but you'll only find it inside (meditation)

If I want to pray for happiness, support and love. How do I know if I'm doing it right? What do I say?

Start and end your prayers with gratitude. We do not need to ask if we are doing this right. Either we are grateful or we are not. Should we feel that we do not have anything to give thanks for, this is the perfect thing to meditate on. Why can we not perceive the great blessing that this life is? It's because we all struggle against the emptiness of desire. Our minds are full of desires that tell us the cup is empty, yes? This is the significance of Matthew 13:12
