Life, right? It can be amazing. But if you’re feeling stuck and lost, it can be a challenge. As a Soul Purpose coach, I work with millennial women who feel stuck and lost in their careers. They’re in a career that is not making them happy. They feel stuck in their circumstances, and they’re unsure about how to solve this. Maybe you feel the same. You’re in a situation that’s making you feel stuck and lost and you don’t know what to do about it. In this blog, I’ll share 3 reasons why you might feel stuck and lost AND what to do about it.
It’s part of life
Before I dive into the reasons and tips, I want to give you some words of encouragement. If you’re feeling lost at the moment, don’t feel bad. We all go through periods in our lives where we feel this way.
It would be great if you could sail through life without anything bad ever happening. Unfortunately, life doesn’t work like that. It’s part of life to sometimes get stuck and lost. And that is okay.
I too had a period in my life where I had absolutely no idea how to get unstuck. Now, I can say that that was a transformational period for me. I decided to take action. I got clear on what I needed to do to get unstuck and I did it. And from there, things started to change. I’m sure that it can work like that for you too.
3 reasons why you feel stuck and lost (and what to do about it)
1. You got disconnected form yourself
The first reason why you might be feeling stuck and lost is because you got disconnected from yourself. Somewhere along the line, you started to live a life that isn’t fully yours. Maybe it’s because you’re trying to live up to expectations from others. Maybe you’re keeping up appearances, maybe there’s another reason. Whatever it is, it made you lose the connection with who you truly are.
Being disconnected from yourself can give you a stuck and lost feeling. If this is the case for you, my tip is to reconnect with yourself. Figure out what in areas of your life you got disconnected and what you need to do to get that connection back.
2. You don’t know what you want
The second reason why you might feel stuck and lost is because you don’t know what you want in life. Especially when you’ve built a life around living up to the expectations of others, it could be that your opinion got blurred along the way.
Not knowing what you want can be very confusing and frustrating. If this is the case for you, it’s really no wonder that you feel stuck.
Start figuring out what it is that you want in life. Once you’ve figured that out, you’ll know what step you need to take to get unstuck.
3. You’re in a rut
The third reason why you might feel stuck is because you’re in a rut. Every day you go through the same pattern and motions. You wake up in the morning, go to work, come home, eat sleep and repeat. Life is just not exciting, but you also don’t know how to change this.
If this is the case for you, see where in your life you can start to spice things up, so that life can become exciting again. Maybe you need to take on a new hobby, maybe you need to see your friends more, maybe it’s time for a new career. Do whatever it is that you need to do to get life flowing and thrilling again.
