Dark nights of the soul are hard

I've  been on one for about a month and a half and while it appears to have gotten easier it still hasn't gotten easier to the point where the pain has departed. The whole thing started because of my 30th birthday and my realization that whatever period there was of youth that existed before it is now officially over. How exactly does a person learn how to deal with something like that while they've chosen to live life day by day, day in and day out, instead of making actual plans for the future? It's a harsh situation, even though it could no doubt be much, much harsher. So I don't know, I don't know how to do it and how to overcome that which I've been trying to avoid, name it what you will: responsibility? Maturity? Life is long I'm finding out and there aren't easy ways around it.
