Losing Your Way

Sometimes I feel like two completely different people.

I can be happy, positive, motivated, inspired and overall always smiling. Other times I can be sad, negative, uninspired and depressed.

Sometimes it feels like I completely lost my way and I don’t know how to find it again. What motivated me? What inspires me? How can I feel better? I’ve lost my way.

While it is easy to navigate through the world when I’m positive, the difficult level increases significantly when I’m not. And the problem is, no matter how hard I try to go back to being positive, it seems like a constant battle when I feel like this.

Do you ever feel this way? What are the factors in your life you tend to avoid to keep yourself feeling positive?

Let me know in the comments, it will be much appreciated ❤

        be yourself, shared with your friends
        ask yourself: What do I want?
        go out and have a walk. It is temporary anyway, you will be happy again =)

  2. Life is full of highs and lows. Sometimes the lows will be more than the highs. But the lower the lower, the higher the highs (if that makes any sense 😉 But whenever I’m not feeling positive or feeling negative, I usually stay away from social media. Whether that be other people’s posts or even messages, just being on my own really helps. Thank You for sharing 🙂 Bless

    I am the same way. Getting outside, in nature, and on the move helps me immensely to recover a positive frame of mind. I like to run or walk in a natural setting, and while I’m there just give it up and notice my surroundings.

    Nice post. I haven’t felt depressed in a while. But my mood fluctuates quite drastically day to day or week to week based on my thoughts and behaviors. So I try to mindful and foster the thoughts and behaviors that our healthy and lead to the positive mood. Not easy though.

    Your message resonates with me and, like you, I have found no easy answers. But, I have discovered two things that help me: writing and walking. (Not necessarily at the same time.😀) I wrote an adventure memoir about my first long-distance trek, where I found peace like I had never felt. I have since continued trekking almost every year. I have some brief slide shows of my four European treks on my website if you want to check them out. (regspittle.com) It sounds like writing on your blog is cathartic for you. I wish you the best. Since I published my book, I have heard from many people who have had journeys like mine (and yours).

      I do tend to find long walks and writing to be very relaxing 🙂 when I keep getting ill though it keeps me from doing those things, that’s the hard part :/

  7. I stay clear of staying in and watch Netflix for hours… even if it’s a walk in the park alone being out from my negative space always helps me not fester in my negativities. 🙂
