It's that "I can't believe THIS is supposed to be life-affirming" ennui that makes you regret your tired existence.

"What's that feeling you get after sex?" "What, you mean ennui?" "Yeah that's the one." "As she started to snore contentedly, I lay there confronted with a gnawing ennui, a confounding disappointment that crept up into my brain as I realized I felt nothing but contempt for the person beside me."
A painting by Walter Richard Sickert who is also suspected to have been Jack the Ripper.
