It is okay if you still haven’t figured out everything in life! It will all happen in time!
All of us have moments where we do not know what we are doing, or how to move on. And it scares us, that this period of confusion might have a negative effect on our future! Well, that is not the case.
So to those who do not know what to do when you feel lost, here are some things to remember every time you feel like that.
You Actually Have More Control Than You Think
When we get the sensation that we are lost and we have no aim in life, or we do not know which direction to head into, this gives us an opportunity to sit back and look at things in a much positive manner!
Many times we tend to ‘victimize’ ourselves and pity ourselves, saying nothing is going our way when in reality we do have some control. You have control over your attitude and emotions. Once you start viewing things in bright light, you might get a clue of what to do next or be at peace and move on.
Continue To Do Your Best
When you are stuck in this emotion, you tend to lay back on things and you often lose the motivation to do your best at anything. This lowers your self-esteem as well as your self-worth. Hence, you should continue to do your best regardless of you not knowing what is next in life! You must continue living your best life!
Face The Reality
Sometimes being alone, rather than being in a cluster of people, can help you look at reality clearly. When we are with others, our sight is often blurred and it distracts us from thinking about ourselves. Others might offer their opinions or give you advice, and while it is helpful, sometimes it is much better for us to figure out the problems ourselves!
Accept That You Are A New Person
Sometimes when people say we have changed a lot, physically or emotionally, we too think that we have changed and have a hard time accepting that. This may also be a reason why you feel so lost in life because this person you are now is quite different than the one you were in the past. So you need to accept who you are now and that we are bound to change because our life itself changes!
Time Is Precious, Especially During Such Times
It is very easy to self-pity and regret all those decisions and past memories, and go down that dark rabbit hole. This mentality feeds into the negativity, making you feel extremely lost like your life is not moving forward. You need to realize that time is very precious and unfortunately, time moves by very quickly! Take baby steps every day, and look at the positive side!
“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.”Henry David Thoreau
Remember, that you are not the only one who feels this way. Everybody goes through this emotion at some point in their life. It is not the end of the world if you feel lost. Think of it as slightly taking a detour to gather yourself again with new and better goals, and getting back on the road!
