How to deal with feeling lost and empty inside?

Have you ever been in a situation where everything seemed perfect fine, but still you were feeling lost?  You were lost because you didn’t know exactly what you wanted from life.  Maybe, you wanted something more but were afraid to turn the page, because nothing comes easy in life.  Maybe, you were afraid of change and settled for less or you just skipped the chances that came to you and blamed others for the result.  Trust me, I’ve been there.  I’ve been there where I didn’t know which direction to follow and if the new beginning would have been better than the last, but within all that mess that was created, I understood something valuable.  If you don’t take an action to improve your lifestyle, then you’ll always live in regret.

Sometimes being lost is good.  You take time for yourself to analyze what you really want from life.  The worst feeling of being lost is when you ignore that emotion and start partying 24/7.   You think that friends and alcohol will make you forget the insecurities and the feeling of emptiness.  You just ignore it altogether, because it’s easier not to face the problems.  Years pass by and you still fill that emptiness in the pit of your stomach.  You fill unfulfilled.  Empty.  You know very well that you’ve not taken the right actions in life and somehow you’ve followed somebody’s else dreams.  You’ve constantly failed and never understood the reason why.  So here I am writing a post for those of you, who have felt lost and without a ‘Google Maps’ to show them the road to a successful lifestyle.

1# Face your fears

Feeling lost and empty is a kind of fear of taking decisions in life.  Somehow, in the back of our mind we want a beautiful and successful career but to deserve it, we must work hard toward it.  The working part it’s what scares us the most, because here are all the “What ifs” questions.  What if I fail? What if I can’t do it? Etc.  Do yourself a favor and don’t be guided by your fears.  Because only fears make us suspicious, empty and lost at the same time. 

2# Meditate and discuss it with someone you truly trust

When feeling lost the best way is to communicate with a person that understands you.  Don’t feel shy and angry.  It’s better to open up than to close yourself in your bubble and feel depressed.  Life always tests us and it’s not graded with A, B, C but with how well we react to it.  Take some time alone, think and then talk to someone because like this you can always make good decisions.

3# Create a Journal

Journals do really help, especially when you can’t express your thoughts to other people.  Take time and write your thoughts, in this way your mind won’t be that much of a mess.  Journals are there to express ourselves and do reread them when we feel lost.

4# Explore your opportunities

In Life we can’t always take decisions based on what we want.  Sometimes, the financial state can be a problem or we have a partner that can’t let go of them, but my point is that if you’re feeling lost is because you are doing something wrong in your life.  So, instead of blaming others for not having a life, start exploring what’s new in the market.  Be brave and don’t always find excuses of being lost.  Create your dream life and like this you will live much happier.

5# Look out with whom you befriend

Sometimes, you may not be the problem, but the friends that stay near you.  They can influence your thoughts with their problems and you can be in doubt if you are doing the right thing in life too.  Don’t stay with negative people that always complain and aren’t happy in life, but try to find people that may be better than you and you can learn something from them.

However, feeling empty and lost is a good thing, because you can rethink and redo your career or lifestyle better.  Don’t be afraid if these feelings come across to you, but do take the chance of analyzing and create your own interesting life.  Because only in this way you’ll grow and understand yourself better.
