Life, Thoughts & Advice

Feeling lost…

This post is quite random and I apologise for being off topic but I just need to vent a little.

I am genuinely feeling lost in life right now. Does anyone else feel or has felt like this? Earlier this year, everything in life was going according to plan. I finished university with amazing marks and I got my first full time job in the field I studied. I felt unstoppable.

Things began to change quite quickly for me, and not in a good way. I started to underestimate myself, I wasn’t proud of the work I was doing and I doubted myself constantly. This is very unlike me to do. I left my job and have been looking for a job for the past month. The worst part is that, even with experience, you can send your resume to 60 companies and only 5 will come back, 10 if you’re lucky. During this whole job hunting process, I began doubting myself worth and wondered if this was even the right career for me.

I have skills, I’m passionate and I consider myself a hard worker, yet all I feel right now is worthless, unemployable and confused. I have a degree with a debt that I’m not even sure I want to use and I don’t even know what my next steps are. I constantly feel like time is running out and that the clock of life is going against me. Each day that goes by that I don’t have a job is a day wasted.

I have dreams. Everyone does. I have dreamt of being an actress, an author, a poet, a ballerina, an interior designer, a CEO of my own company… the list goes on. The worst part is that everything on that list is achievable, but my lack of confidence is killing my motivation. I have all this spare time now and I haven’t done anything to move towards any of my dreams.

I know that I need to do something, but when you feel alone inside all these crazy thoughts, it’s difficult. I’m writing this post in the hopes that if you’re reading this and also feeling lost, you’ll see that you aren’t alone. We are fortunate enough now to have social media where we can easily reach people. We should use this platform as a way to lift each other up.

I’m going to be something one day, so watch this space!
