As we journey through life obstacles as we grow to live our lives day by day, oftentimes we become lost in the world. Not having a sense of who we are or what direction our life is going. Therefore, the result of that can cause you to start feeling lost in life.

Why Are You Feeling Lost in Life?
1. You Lack Spiritual Guidance.
Do you ever feel like you’ve lost connection to Jesus Christ? Or do you feel like you have been feeling lost in life that you have lost your relationship with God? Often times you forget to pray because of the circumstances that are going on in your life. Then their are times that you wonder does God even still exists today? Above all, the crazy situations you’re repeating a cycle of dysfunctional that no one understands your hurt or pain. In the end, you lose hope and faith that Jesus is even there for you.
In the end, you realize you want a better way out of life, but that can only be found through Jesus Christ. Yes, Jesus Christ is the only person who can fill that empty void inside of your heart. Now it is time to surrender your life over to Jesus so He can take away all the heartache and pain that is hidden deep inside of you.
2. You Don’t Know or Love Yourself
As I was growing up in my early twenties, I always struggled with loving myself. Not to mention self-doubt with no confidence in myself. It was always hard for me to step outside of my comfort zone to try something different with my appearance. Therefore, I was always worried about how I carry myself or what people thought about me. It made me feel like I did not belong and I was feeling lost in life.
Then I realized that I was beautiful on the inside and outside. Furthermore, I learned to love myself, but not the way that I deserve to love myself. It was a constant battle for me and I struggled with it for years. Equally important, I had finally discovered that I had to love myself as God loves and sees me. That was a major turning point in my life, I was finally able to discover who I really was and who God created me to be.
3. You Don’t Know Your Purpose in life or Why You’re Here
In the light of discovering yourself, you’re at that point in life, where you want to know why you were created here on this earth. This is the process of trying to discover who you truly are or what is your purpose in life? When you’re feeling lost in life, this is the best time to work on yourself to become the best version of you. It was when I first turned 30, I finally discover who I really was and became the best version of myself.
During this timeframe, God will reveal your purpose to you. When Jesus created you, He made you unique, you stand out and you are not like everyone else. Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
4. Your Life is Headed in A Direction You Never Imagined
To put it another way, you might be at a job or career that is unfulfilling or you feel stuck at a place you might now like anymore. In other words, you simply could be outgrowing your job or career. It may be time to move on to different stages in life so you can grow to become the person you were meant to be. Overall, you’re not meant to stay feeling lost in life at a particular job or career if it’s not satisfying to you.
In my opinion, if you are not happy, it’s time to move to, try something different in your life. Especially if you are looking for a career change because you will never stay the same person. So find something you enjoy doing or love so you can live a life filled with many opportunities to discover what you want to do with your life.
By any means necessary, if you want to go to college, go get your degree or graduate degree, find a college that is best for you. If you need a new skill, certification or a new trade for a job go find a way to get it done. Life is too short, live the best of it and live the life of your dreams. It’s never too late for you, it’s only the beginning!
5. You Lost Someone You Love
Under these circumstances, it’s very hard not to be feeling lost in life. Yes, it’s very hard to get through the loss of a loved one. At the present time, it could be the death of a loved one, a relationship breakup, going through a divorce or the loss of a friendship. Whatever it may be you will get through it, it’s a healing process to get over a broken heart.
At the same time, remember that you matter, get back up, start all over again and you will find unconditional love again. One thing you can do to help you get through it, is to write or journal by expressing love to the person you lost. It will help you to go through the healing process faster. Take the necessary steps to help you get through everything so you will be able to have better relationships in the future so you will not be feeling lost in life.
6. You’re Constantly Comparing Yourself to Others
With this in mind, a lot of people are unhappy or feeling lost in life because they are always comparing themselves to others. For this reason, they are always looking at other people, not happy where they are in life. Stop comparing yourself to others because you don’t know their struggles to get where they are. That is to say, you only see the finish process, you didn’t see the steps or process they took to get where they are now.
Find your own pathway in life, don’t worry or compare yourself to others. Everyone has different steps or a different pathway on their own. No one is the same, everyone is different, so find your own way and don’t try to be like everyone else. Don’t try to do the same things as everyone else, stand out, be different in your own unique self.
7. You Spend Too Much Time With Toxic People
With this intention in mind, you are who you surround yourself around. Although this may be true, it’s a positive and negative side to it. We all know that you are who your friends are or the people you surround yourselves with on daily basis. On the other hand, if you hang out with people who are toxic and unhealthy they will bring you down with them.
Then again, they may want to see you miserable or unhappy like they are, they don’t want you to be successful in life. So they will try to do everything to bring you down or make you unhappy in life, like they are. Even though they may seem like nice or good people, remember everyone is not meant to be in your life or around you.
Stay away from toxic people that means no good for you. You must set boundaries and spend time with safe people. So you can live a life that is filled with love or joy. Do not live a life feeling lost in life or depressed in life. Live a life that is filled with happiness and unlimited opportunities to live the life of your dreams.
This is so relatable. I’m sure every reader can relate to AT LEAST one of these. For me, toxic people was one that was hard to recognize early on in my adult life but by the time I hit 40 I was genius at removing them. So many changes come with that. A toxic workplace is harder to pull away from but so important and part of the reason for my blog to help people ditch the 9-5.
