Users Who Spiked
I feel lost in life. I have no day to day purpose. At first, I thought I wanted to be a writer. Yet, I don't know if I am making much of an impact with my words. I tried my hand at painting, but each project makes me feel unqualified.
I am at my happiest when I travel, but traveling non-stop is not attainable at this point in my life. And I know that traveling is only a band aid for a deeper problem.
My soul does not know what it needs, and I have no clue how to find the purpose that will satisfy it. That realization makes me feel empty and hopeless.
How does one find what their soul's purpose is? Does it come with time? And if so, how long is it going to take before my soul knows what it desires?
I know that I cannot be the only person who feels this way. I'm sure there are millions who do not know why they are here.
But I don't want to feel lost forever. I need a flame that fuels me. Right now I don't think that I even have a spark in me, and I don't know how to process that realization.
I can feel sadness and a sense of depression trickling back into my life, and that is not something that I want or need back.
For so long, I drowned myself in the different jobs I held. There is no time to think about myself when working for a company. Now days though, I have so much free time that my mind has nothing else to do but think about how I have no purpose to fulfill.
There are times when I think that I should go and hang out with friends, but I don't have the social energy in me. My husband encourages me to paint, write, or just do something creative. But being creative is not bringing me any sense of accomplishment anymore.
To put in plainly, I have no fucking idea what to do with my life. Living with no purpose is driving me crazy, and I don't want to be that type of crazy.
For those of you who deal with an issue such as this, how do you find passion in your life?
