Seeking Direction In Life

My last post spoke about problems and the importance of being able to problem solve for yourself in life before seeking help.

After making that post I thought I’d make a short post to share the problem currently plaguing my life. It’s not a special problem, it’s nothing unique to me or people my age, and yet sometimes I can’t help but feel as though it is when I make the stupid decision to compare myself to others.

So what’s my biggest problem?

I have no sense of direction in life.

This doesn’t mean I have no interests or I’m not a hardworking person. It’s just I’m intrigued by so much and by wanting to experience everything, aquire so many random skills, I find that I’m dedicating myself to nothing in the long run. Not really.

Now, I understand that life isn’t set in stone and so life plans are likely; no certain, to change, but it would be nice to have some vague idea of where I’m aiming to be in the future.

I’m still very young, and so I’m aware I have time, but the older I get the more of my peers seems to settle on goals. Whilst this is to be expected, I still find that I see the world half with the innocent eyes of a child keen to experience everything, and half with the belief that I’m incapable of doing whatever I’ve set my eyes on.

So where do I go from here? Where do you as a reader who can relate go from here?

I don’t have the answer.

I wish I did. Oh boy, do I wish I did. But since I don’t, all I can do right now is try my best in all I do and hope that at some point something stands out. Comparing my path to that of others is pointless because no two starts are the same. As such, our paths to the end will also be different.

It will probably be easier to find my direction in life than the location of my storage unit
