Life is not one straight and narrow path. There are all kinds of twists and turns on the journey. There will be stumps and bumps on the road. And the journey most travelled will rarely be the journey you need to travel. We’ll all learn different things on our own original life paths.
But sometimes in life we get thrown off that path. No matter how perfect we are in our approach to life, sometimes we’re thrown a curve ball. And it’s hard to deal with unexpected life changes. Many times we can get sad and depressed dealing with the hard problems. But even more, really tough times can leave us lost in life. We struggle to find true relief or direction in our life at times. You just have to be strong and determined to find your truth. So at what point during the last five years have you felt lost and alone?
Here’s my thoughts on when I’ve felt lost and alone in the last five years.
I’ve never really been the type to feel lost in a situation. I’m super focused on what I should be doing in my life at all times. But in 2016 my heart was broken for the first (and last) time ever. I’ve ñever dealt with something like that before. It was really hard to deal with for the months that followed. I couldn’t figure out where to go and what to do. So I was completely lost from the end of 2016 into all throughout 2017.
I started going through a lot of other difficult problems as well. My health started getting really bad all year long. My parents and friends were struggling with their item health. I was on pain meds all the time. My mental health was being taxed nonstop. Ultimately, I was lost for the two years that followed. I’m still lost and alone in some ways to this day. But that was definitely the main time I was struggling the most feeling in pain and alone.
I just hope to get better and stay better. All we need is hope. And for that we have each other. Love you ❤️.
