I don’t feel like me and I’m really trying to find my way back

I mean I know I’m fine and I’ll be fine eventually but this girl is struggling and I don’t know what I want in life nor do I know what I’m doing.

I know who I am, and how I got here, but who do I want to be now / next / moving forward?

Keywords: {0}

It is a simple question, really. I have built the whole foundation up to this point. I have chosen what makes me who I am. I have eliminated the things I don’t want to be, absorbed and molded who I want to be, so why can’t I just answer the damn question??? And as I sit here, feeling a bit ashamed, a bit scared, a bit nervous, a bit pissed, I realize that my my identity has not been nurtured or cared for in a LONG time. And the ton of bricks hits me.

Finding a hobby that keeps my mind and body active is a blessing I’ve been needing

If you’re having any sort of identity crisis or feelings of self-doubt, if there is something that you’ve been wanting to do, just start doing it. I know that sounds cliché but if it’s something that you think you’ll enjoy and you don’t know how to do it, look up videos on YouTube or articles on Google to help you get started with it. Keeping your mind active is an incredible way to keep yourself out of the darkness. I promise you, doing things you enjoy will make you proud of yourself even if you think nobody else is proud of you.

Recognizing and acknowledging the power I have and powers I want to have are the keys to making real change

Just having passed a power station, it struck me that I feel powerful. I have no problem describing myself as strong, but do not generally identify with power. That needs to change.

I used to be the most important person in their lives, but they’ve grown up without so much as a backward glance

I peer back into the past to see if I can catch a glimpse of an earlier version of me, but that person was young and full of insecurities. And our dreams no longer match up. I’m wiser now, rounder in both body and spirit, and with mileage in my soul, I see barely a shadow of myself in the younger version of me. Like an oak tree contemplating an acorn I suppose. There is something quite liberating in this activity though. Pleasure floods through me when I realise I am no longer as fragile, no longer as desperate to be liked or no longer as hungry to make my mark on the world. I am, I come to a startling conclusion, content. I mull this concept around in my mind for a while. Contentment. It is so far from what I think I wanted in life, and yet, I like the way it feels. Smooth. Pleasing. Comfortable. I’m shrugging this on, like my new furry coatigan, while I work out what I want to do for this next stage of my life. How I want to spend my time and energy, which is less boundless than it once was. And I come to the conclusion that this stage of life is a gift. An opportunity to think again about where to direct oneself. It comes with the acceptance that there is no destination that does not fly past before you’ve had time to unpack and change the bed linen. Life is flow. Life is motion. Life is what happens between events. Life must be lived in the moment.
