Can you really lose yourself?

Updated on June 2, 2017

Can you really lose yourself.

Everyone has a busy life, which in turn means everything can be limitless and you can lose yourself, with being so busy with never being able to rest. Most of the time you don’t know who is coming and going in your household because everyone is so busy. With being so busy in your everyday life and having the people around you so busy, can you get lost? For example forgetting why you are so busy or what you are doing. Everything goes so fast, nowadays that most of the time we don’t even see it.

Have you ever done so much where you lost yourself without even realizing it what does it means when that happens? Losing yourself means that part of can’t be accessed by you or anyone else. This can happen, from illness or a psychological process. Most of the time people that lose themselves have been abandoned as a child or some other way. You can be disconnected, from yourself, and what is going on in the world. This all depends on what happens in your life, most of the time it starts at a young age and progresses. You can fix it if you have the will to do so. There are a limitless number of ways this can happen. You can lose yourself when you are doing something you love because it is so consuming. There is a limitless number of things that people can lose themselves with. It is different for every person though so there is not just one thing that someone can lose themselves, with.

Losing oneself is something that everyone has experienced at least once. You can lose yourself in a job, in a book, at school. Most of the time, it’s the way you think about it, but it can happen. I have lost myself, doing everyday things usually when I am really busy or reading a good book. When you lose yourself, doing something it is either because you really enjoy doing it or it is something that has to be done that takes a lot of time. When you lose yourself, you forget about everything else that is going on around you. You are so focused on the task at hand that you become one with it.

Becoming one with a certain task or losing yourself, in a certain task is so common that you don't even realize it. It can happen when you are working if it is something you are really into. My writing is something else other than reading that I can lose myself, in because it is so easy to fall into a trance of wanting to get it done and forgetting about everything else like eating which isn't good.

Things like eating get put on the back burner with most people if they are busy doing something that is time sensitive. The goal with your work that is time sensitive means get it done and eat when you are finished isn't it? Since everyone is busy in today’s day and age, losing yourself is a daily occurrence with everything always moving and things needed to be done for a specific time frame. When people are really busy that is when they lose themselves because their focus is on getting things done not themselves. I know this because it has happened to me a number of times. Losing yourself can happen, and people can be confused when it does, but why and how does it happen? That is the question that we need to ask ourselves. Losing yourself can happen when you continuously are on the go, and you don’t really stop to think about what you are doing, but you go through the motions.

You can lose yourself, in your own mind, and get confused because you don’t know why. That is when seeing a psychologist is the answer. I have lost myself, like that but that is when I take a breath and say, “Okay so I don’t know where I am but what got me here, and how do I get back to where I need to be”. If you lose yourself, ask yourself that question and you will probably be able to figure it out. People can lose themselves more these days because of how busy lives can become. Losing yourself is a strange thing because you don’t know if its just in your head or it is in the real world. Most of the time though it’s in your head and that is when you need to slow down and look at your life from a different perspective.

Losing yourself, in everything that goes on in your life, happens to the really busy people. These are the people that don’t know how to take breaks and they think, there is something wrong with me because I don’t know where I am going and how to fix it. I am one of those people but I am trying to fix it, that is why I take everything one day at a time. I also plan my days so that I don’t get lose myself in them, by doing a million different things that don’t pertain to what I wanted to get done in the first place. If you plan out what you want to get done, first in your day you won’t lose yourself so easily so why not give it a shot? If you feel like you are losing yourself, in whatever it is you are doing talk to the right people, like family, friends or a psychologist you are not alone in anything remember that.

Losing yourself, is something we all have to do at one point in our lives
Losing yourself, is something we all have to do at one point in our lives

Losing Oneself in a task can be Peaceful

You can feel like you are losing yourself when you are too consumed by something but you aren't really losing yourself, you are just doing too many limitless things and you are not really focused on the task at hand. When you focus on the task at hand, the limitlessness feeling of loss is no longer there because you have changed your focus for the better. Losing yourself in something can be limitless because you are so focused on the task at hand but it won't last long,

Losing yourself when doing a certain task, can sometimes be a blessing in disguise because you are seeing what you are doing through a different perspective. Which can be better depending on how you look at it. I would look at it as a blessing because you will be learning limitless things when you lose yourself while doing something, and when you lose yourself while doing something it is usually because you are limitlessly engrossed in it that you lose all sense of time since it is going so well.

when things get busy and you don't know which way is up or down, that is when losing yourself, can be a scary but interesting experience. The reason why it could be an interesting experience as well as scary is that you are seeing things through a completely different outlook and it is moving so fast that it is hard to keep up. When it is hard to keep up with things it feels like things are spiraling out of control and you are losing yourself because you can't wrap your head around what is going on.

Losing oneself is something that happens on a regular basis in most people's lives because we are all so busy and with all the technology these days everyone expects things to be instant which in turn can make people lose themselves in the hustle and bustle that we now call life.It never used to be like this but now that it is there is no way it will ever stop it is just going to keep moving and we will definitely continue to lose ourselves, a time or two.

Have you ever, done something and gotten so into it that you forgot about everything else? I know that I have, and I sometimes continue to do that depending on what it is that I am doing, so yes losing oneself, doing a task is possible. Everyone loses themselves doing things because we all think that we need to keep busy in order to live fulfilling lives. Is this true, however, have we ever thought about it?

Nothing ever, stops and nobody ever wants to miss anything which means a lot of the time we are losing ourselves trying to keep up with everything that is going on around us, We as people need to learn how to slow down, and really look at where we are going if we don't want to lose ourselves. Losing ourselves is limitless because of how fast paced everything is even when we don't realize it, sometimes we can lose ourselves doing everyday tasks.

When we are limitlessly focused on something that is when we lose ourselves without even realizing it, but that is the good thing about losing ourselves because we are getting the things done that need to be done in order for us to live happy lives or at least that is what I think. When we lose ourselves by being busy doing things that just need to be done and we don't really like doing, that is when we aren't so focused on the task at hand and we can get really annoyed with it and nothing will get done that way.

Remember though losing yourself, while doing a certain task isn't all bad. It can be a good thing too because you can get limitless things done without realizing that you are getting limitless things done. That is what is good about losing yourself, sometimes.
