Have you found yourself?
Does everyone feel a little lost? Is finding yourself a lifelong journey? What advice would you give to those seeking? What did you do to find yourself?
I have found myself but it wasn't until I hit my 50's. I came away from the church and of religions and then I was not a robot believing what a robot does and does what a robot does. I have clarity now and what God is and what it still has for me and why I am here to begin with. You have to have life in front of you before you can really see where and what you have done before.
I find myself every day after the things are moved off. It just looks like a lesson of our own life where we can,t mend it what we did and do, because no one knows the future.Every time I feel that, it would be good if there could be a rewind button so that I can go back and make a change.
Hello Jennifer Awesome question.
I think a part of life is the journey of always finding ourselves.
I believe by a certain age/time [or even specific experiences in life] teach us certain things about ourselves that stick-but I feel the journey continues.
Like Lady Guinevere (the other commenter) feels/experienced; I believe that once we pull ourselves away from all the ideologies (preconceived notions, pressures, and expectations etc.) the world has of us-we can begin to find our way: our own way. But again, I think that journey is ongoing and we sort of..."collect" things we learn/experience while "discovering" our own self and identity.
I think I have, but at other times I'm not so sure. The reason I say that is because I'm old enough to be set in my ways and I accept who I am, but then something happens that opens my eyes to something new about myself. I guess after a certain age we know almost everything about ourselves, yet we still slowly learn more and change a little bit here and there.
I have felt and often do feel lost so much. I found myself through art. It has been a lifelong journey so far, but the art piece was just simply starting with one brush stroke and continuing on.
For those seeking the advice I would give is to find something you are passionate about, or something you want to try (to see if you are passionate) and do that. Observe how you feel and who you are when you do something that makes you happy. That's quite a bit about who you are.
Therapy works too.

I think the words above says it all. Just a few months ago, I thought I had this calling then one day I realized I really didn't like what I was doing. So I just gave up on it. Right now, I'm lost and as it says on my profile, I'm a wandering soul trying to find purpose in her life.
