Why You Feel Like Giving Up

Why is it that so many people feel lost in life, not knowing who they are, where they are going, and whether there is any purpose or meaning in their lives?

Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions? I have.

And that’s why I decided to write this blog post, in the hope that it will bring some clarity to people’s lives and help them find their way back – back to themselves, back to their hearts and back to their life’s path.

Here are 10 Reasons People Feel Lost in Life:

1. They believe logic is more important than imagination.

People who suffer from a lack of imagination feel compelled to rationalize everything that happens to them. Constantly seeking to give logical explanations, to themselves and to others, for why they can’t move on with their lives, for why they aren’t as happy as they would like to be, and for why their present and future lives will be nothing but a replica of their past. And that’s just another reason why people feel lost in life.

2. They believe every toxic thought that runs through their minds.

To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly—you usually don’t use it at all. It uses you. All the things that truly matter — beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace — arise from beyond the mind…” When you believe every toxic thought that runs through your mind, and when you insist on building your sense of self and your entire life based on those thoughts, you can’t help but feel lost.

3. They surround themselves with people who drag them down.

Spending too much time with the wrong crowd is another reason why so many people feel lost in life. When you surround yourself with people who drag you down, people who are constantly whining, blaming, criticizing, gossiping and complaining about everything and everyone, poisoning your mind, your heart and your life with their fears, doubts and negativity, you will eventually get derailed from your life path, and that will cause you to feel lost.

4. They try to control everything.

They can’t seem to understand that life has a natural flow that is always working with them, and so, they choose to push against it by trying to control everything and everyone. As a result, they get imbalanced, they disconnect from their own heart and soul, and they start to feel more and more lost with every day that passes.

 5. They are stuck in the past.

They are very attached to their past and everything that happened in it. And they just can’t seem to find a way to free themselves from it, not do they want to.

6. They are ruled by fear.

Their hearts are closed and fear seems to govern every area of their lives. Fear seems to be present in their minds, in their hearts, in their homes, in the work they do, in the decisions they make, in the relationships they have and in everything they do. They live in a permanent state of fear, and since love is no longer welcomed, they feel lost, disoriented, disconnected and very unhappy.

7. They value the opinions of others more than their own.

Even though they have a very wise and trusted counselor within themselves – their heart and Soul, they don’t seem to trust themselves. They constantly seek advice from others, and the opinions of those around them always seem to be more valuable and more important than their own.

8. They live their lives based on what other people believe to be right.

Another reason why people feel lost in life is because they live their lives based on what other people believe to be right for them, based on what other people think to be true. They craft their lives based on the thoughts, beliefs and ideas that were handed down to them from a very young age by their parents, family members, teachers, friends, society, and every single person with whom they interacted. And because they never took the time to question the authenticity of those beliefs, and whether they had anything to do with who they themselves are, they continued to build, craft and shape their lives based on what other people believe to be right.

9. They have lost the connection with their own heart and Soul.

One of the many reasons why people feel lost in life is because they have disconnected from their own hearts and Souls. They pay too much attention to their rational minds, and to what everyone else has to say, and now they can no longer hear the voices of their hearts, nor can they connect to the wisdom of their Souls.

10. They have a distorted sense of self.

People who feel lost in life tend to have a distorted sense of self. They no longer see their beauty, their light and their perfection, and they can no longer accept this truth – that who they are is enough! Their vision of reality seems to be darkened and distorted. And all they seem to “see” is how little, unworthy and insignificant they are, and how nothing they do is good enough.
