Do you ever wake up in the morning and feel like you have no idea what to do with your life? No idea about who you want to become? You feel like you’re stuck at some point, and lost track of yourself? You don’t know what makes you happy and motivated anymore?
Feeling lost is so confusing, and depressing sometimes. It’s like you’re walking around, carrying a heavy weight on your shoulders and trying to find a way to get rid of it every single day. And when you try to forget about it, people start asking you, So what’s next? What’s your plan after school/college? Did you get a job? Then you feel like a failure, who has no charge over their life. It’s quite an overwhelming and terrifying feeling. Especially when there’s nothing exciting anymore. Everything is dull and repetitive. You live the same day over and over, wishing you could find an answer for what you’re feeling. But this feeling could be a chance for you to find whatever you’re looking for, if you just take a moment, try to understand yourself, and be aware of it.
Try to think of this phase as ” A journey of self discovery ” rather than feeling lost. Find out your interests. Cling to whatever makes you feel alive. Reconnect with yourself. Write whatever comes to your mind. Don’t fear an idea. Every time you feel bewildered, take a deep a breath, and ask yourself; What do I really want to do? And if you don’t find a solid answer, it’s okay, you’re not alone in this. Just keep going through your journey. Explore the world by any way possible. Don’t limit yourself to a one thing. Pay a close attention to everything around you. The songs you hear, the books you read, the conversations you have with people or even hear. You never know where your inspiration might come from. Don’t be afraid to take a completely different path, because it’s not what everyone expected from you. Ignore what people think about you. Don’t forget throughout your journey to enjoy discovering yourself. And always remember, you have the power to choose what do you want do with your life, and who you want to become.
What’s the point of living if we don’t try out new things? There’s a great joy in feeling lost. You basically have nothing to lose. So many things to do, and experience. You’re on one path, but there are tons of different paths you haven’t figured out yet. You don’t have to make huge changes, just little ones that will make you feel better about yourself. There’s a strange beauty in not knowing what comes next. Once you embrace this time of your life, I promise you, wonderful things are going to happen.
