You're 25 so I would just rearrange the wording in the above quote. Example: "I will make the most of my liveaboard lifestyle I have by having fun one night stands."

I haven't had enough sleep to give a more thoughtful reply but if I get caught up on sleep (or significantly) more deprived, I'll be in a better state to give my thoughts. Btw I lived aboard 10 years and for me liveaboard was a better one word introduction than any other at the time.

Enjoy your Walden but remember Kierkegaard...

"Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced."

Re: Rediscovering one's "Self"

Sounds to me like you need to stop thinking so much and start living your life. The choices that you make while living your life and how you deal with the consequences of your choices is one way to find your self. When I was in the Navy my first sea daddy, a Chief Petty Officer named Pulaski told that "every day you waste by not living your life brings you one day closer to a life not lived". That was the best advice I ever received. You can take that advice or leave it, but I doubt very much that a prolonged pity party will help you figure out what it is that you are looking for.

Re: Rediscovering one's "Self"

How to answer. Reading HDT now (again) in my 50s. Made more (and less) sense to me after 30 years. He was right mostly about simple living. Too busy making a living to have a life is just silly.

As was said above. If you are already a live aboard and like it, you already know a lot about yourself. Explore Asperger's syndrome. You may be lightly affected. Idle chat turns you off. Don't quite "get" relationships. Prefer aloneness (together is stressfull).

Advice? Do what you fear. Explore your boundaries. Build up a huge file of stories by doing stuff and failing. The funniest and most interesting stories are born of failures. (just don't do stupid things that get you killed, like kayaking to Hawaii.)

Re: Rediscovering one's "Self"

If one night stands, drinking with your friends and living on a sailboat at age 25 doesn't make you happy..............try 25 years in a dead end cubicle job with a nasty boss and lots of deadlines.

Re: Rediscovering one's "Self"

I don't need to rediscover myself, I know exactly who I am.
All I need, is to sail more so that I can be that guy.
