Don't Kow Where Or How I Became So Lost

I've often thought to myself and even said that somehow or somewhere I lost my way.  And the feeling is numbness and loss of direction. 

It's like I took a wrong turn (it goes way back) and I just kelp going blindly and never regained sense of direction. And this makes me very sad and depressed if I think about it too much.

I can relate. I feel like I have lost my sense of self, I feel stuck, and constantly wonder if I will ever find my way again.

I also feel I have lost my way. Not sure where to go or turn. I'm 41 now, divorced, an empty nester and been engaged for a few years. I just feel lost and unhappy. I'm from California, moved and lived in Tennessee for 3 years with my fiance and we just recently moved to Washington state. Would really love to get back to Tennessee. Left a decent job to come here. Just trying to figure what to do next with my life. I guess I really thought this move would be wonderful for us....just hasn't worked out as I thought it would. Everyday there is stress that my fiance will get laid off due to lack of work and I'm still looking for work. Trying to be positive......

It seems we are on the same boat. How do we find a new direction ? I think change is important . Good or bad . We grow every day and therefore we have to adapt to changes.<br />
Do you think we just didnt grow and now we are lost ?<br />
Would a different environment help the change ?<br />
Thank you for letting me know i am not alone.

Thank you for reading... it seems a lot of us are in the same boat.

I've felt this. Time just seems to fly by. I remember my dreams of my past and I have yet to fulfill them. Its not that I'm not willing, its more that I don't know how to do it. Its pretty sad if I think about it. Though if I could fix it I would. So I manage to deal with what's already on my plate for the time being. <br />
