What are you doing when you feel lost in life? Most majority of people don’t know how to deal with this overwhelming emotion properly, and they eventually, end up in even bigger mess by the time.
I know there is a burden on your chest that shows itself out of nowhere. You feel hopeless, and you don’t enjoy your food anymore, don’t know what you’re doing with your life. Let me ask you: When was the last time you laughed till you passed out. Can you remember?
Now, I don’t want you to feel alone. Time to time we all have these moments in life, but there is a way out. The important question is how we can manage to get out of this life sucker feeling, and what this feeling trying to tell us?
Accept Your Feelings First
Don’t bury your feelings. Don’t think, It will pass if you just ignore them. This would make you angry. Say yes, I feel bad. I feel lost. Let it be, allow yourself to feel miserable for a while. On the other hand, know that everything will work out in the end. It always does. However, Accepting your feelings, and being vulnerable is a must.
Be true to yourself, and to others. Especially understand life isn’t always about rainbows, and having a bad season is not end of the world. To be honest most of the time It’s just the opposite. It may lead to new beginnings.
You feel lost, but don’t feel lost at home. This will sound crazy a little bit, I know, but HEAR ME OUT No matter how unhappy you are, grap a piece of paper, and a pen. Take yourself to a bar, order your favorite drink then start writing. While pouring your feelings out, savor your drink.
Sometimes it is okay to feel miserable for a while. Let yourself to sleep, to cry, write, scream. Allow yourself to say: Heck, yes! I am taking this time to feel my misery. So you won’t feel extra guilty this way.
Stay In The Sun
Make yourself a delicious coffee in the morning, and let the sun wash over your skin. Look around you in silence. Give a hug to yourself.
Try to smile a little bit. If I had told you to think positive, take actions from the beginning that wouldn’t be realistic, because I know when we feel lost in life, we don’t have the strength to even move. You have to get warmed, and let your feelings just ‘be’ first. Pretend to be a cat in the sun, do nothing.
Watch Inspiring Ted Talks
There are a lot of people who went from bottom to the top. These people went through a lot, and still made it. Every time when I feel down, especially, I listen ted talks. It inspires me a lot, reminds me that I’m not alone, gives me hope, and I feel better.
Who knows maybe the sentence that will cause you to change your life either in this blog, or in those ted talks. I want you to be best version of yourself, and be happy with it no matter what.
Find Your Passion
What do you think that you are good at? Is there something that you’ve been avoiding to learn? and why? Those things might sparkle something in your soul. You can indeed wake up with a passion in the morning. You can feel satisfied, and be full of life again.
When I was 19 years old I remember a time that I did feel lost in life, and was crying a lot. Didn’t know what I was doing with my life. At that time there was an English course nearby my dorm. I was passing by that course everyday. It was literally one of my dreams to speak English like my mother tongue. So one day, I decided to register there. There was nothing to lose after all, and It turned out a lot better than I expected. Its door wasn’t simply a door. It opened so many opportunities, and pulled me out of my misery as well. I know you don’t feel like doing something most of the time, but give something a shot, and watch your mood change day by day. If you’ve tried this before, what was your experience?
Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.– Henry David Thoreau
There is Sun After Pain
Ask yourself what this feeling trying to tell you? Most likely you need to take action somewhere in your life. Something does not satisfy you, and this is your big opportunity to change things. Don’t see yourself at the bottom. On the contrary, take it as a wake up call. The sun will follow you. Believe that better things ahead. Obviously, most of the people feel lost, that’s because a new era should begin for them. Encourage yourself with these powerful, quotes every single day.
