Default Anybody feel lost?

If there's one word that I feel would aptly describe this feeling that has plagued me for longer than I care to remember. It would be lost. Despite all attempts at positivity this world seems to bare nothing for me. No direction. no up.

I have no idea what I want from my life and I am petrified

It's okay to feel lost. It's okay to feel like you don't know what you're doing. People which tell themselves they know what they're doing are usually being delusional. In life, there is no up or linear movement, it's a just fucking squiggle, and most of the time, you're going to be stuck in that squiggle, and how you interpret it is up to you.

You don't need to know what's happening, you just need to make sure you're doing okay. Do things one step at a time. One day you're going to think you will be doing this, and then all of a sudden you'll be doing the complete opposite. Don't be afraid of the unknown. Have a tolerance for ambiguity, because it will help you create, evolve and become new things. Take a deep breath, relax when you need it, and walk wherever the fuck gets you away from standing still, because most of the time, that's all we have in our lives.

Good luck

Same here omg! I've been forever moving schools and towns a houses, so "home" never really sticks... Feeling lost is a very common feeling, a feeling we share haha! These are old posts but, hey, it's still nice to be able to reply to them I hope you feel less lost now and even if you don't, hey, you'll find your place eventual, but it's certainly not resting for all of eternity, if ya know what I mean...

I think everyone goes through feelings like this. I know I do. Sometimes we just don't how how to continue with our lives, and we feel 'stuck'. Just hang in there. Find things you enjoy doing. Do something you haven't done in a long time. Things will get better, I promise.

I guess the motivation for me is the belief that there's something bright in the future. What if this all leads to something good?

Bad days will always be there, you can limit their impact, but you can't stop them from happening.

Find something you love and pursue it, things do get better, it's just a matter of what you do to make it happen.

Every damn day I spend at least some of the time wondering just WHAT THE FUCK I am doing with my life. Since, right now, I'm not saving the world or even really helping anyone. Sure, I'm learning something that could eventually help people, maybe, but I'm not in the Peace Corps, MSF, or anything like that, and I probably won't be because I just don't think I'm wired to do that kind of good thing...but there are other good things out there that I am capable of doing, and I remind myself of that, that there are things close to home I can do to make the world less shitty and maybe in the process make myself feel like less of a shit too.

i actually feel this coz my dad has a gambling problem. this caused us to move a lot and go from upper middle class to maybe almost borderline wellfare. plus taking care of my younger brother and doing most if not all the household chores made me lose my identity. plus being a masculine gay is also making me question who I am as I don't feel I fit in anywhere.

Same, every once in a while I feel the same way.

I love musicals and don't mind talking about anything!

I'm open and willing to talk to anyone

Sometimes it's like my head is empty. Then I feel kind of unreal. I don't think it's because of anything. I'm not depressed
