ARE YOU FEELING LOST?

WHY EMPTINESS LOOMS INSIDE 

While you are young, you have this dream of the kind of future you want. Being a small innocent child, your dreams can be so real, you cannot imagine not being able to achieve it. 
 The thing is with age, our dreams also change or age ⌣:) 
You might not understand but just find yourself having a different desire from the one you wished for while young. This might be due to :

 Dreams

As you grow you come to realise that either your dreams and reality are totally different. Hence, you gain a new perspective of things in life. This leads you to change your whole dream. It can be in a bad or good way.
 In a bad way is the case of sacrificing that which you had hoped to do/achieve in life due to the reality that it's either unachievable or unrealistic. 
 In a good way is realising your dream is not only achievable but you can even do more than that which you dreamt of. 
Most of the time it's the first case. 

A lot of people sacrifice their life dreams because of barriers that they find in life. This ends up affecting their happiness knowingly or unknowingly. 

Letting go of something you had dreamt of having, being or achieving one day, leaves some kind of emptiness inside of you. 
You will feel lonely but not realise it. On the other hand you might realise you are lonely. You will do alot of things to fill this emptiness inside of you. 
However, finding the cure to this loneliness is not paramount. 

A huge percentage of the world's population live un unfulfilled life. Why? Because they give up on chasing their dreams.
Believe in the possibility of anything. This way you will not lose hope. Remember, there is always a first. If that wasn't the case. We would not be having a lot of things including but not limited to bulbs, telephone, Internet, e.t.c. Example:
        'Thomas Edison's teachers said he was "too stupid to learn anything." He was fired from his first two jobs for being "non-productive." As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, "How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?" Edison replied, "I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.'

  1. This post really struck a chord with me. I've been lusting over my dream career since I was pretty young, but I sacrificed taking the steps towards it for my ex partner. Now I'm working my way towards what I want and I couldn't be happier. Great post! :)

  2. Edison's comments are so inspiring. It's so easy to live in the now and feel disheartened, but if you don't you can achieve your goals.

  4. It's hard to make that dream a reality sometimes too when you get older. Too many obstacles/reality get in the way.

  10. I know this feeling all too well. Growing up I had dreams that were just that dreams, and I was so lost until I did something about it to make them a reality, it changed so much in my life.

 These are signs of inner pain and you need inner healing.
 Millicent is a very good friend of mine. However, I was almost her only friend because she used to get in fights alot.
This was because every time she was given en a comment by someone even as a joke, she took it personally.
 Most of the time people avoided to talk to her. Why? She was like a ticking bomb, ready to explode anytime. You would not be sure what to tell her and when to tell her anything.
 Her reaction to your comments was negative. Even the most positive thing for her she could find the negative aspect of it.
This kind of anger she was harbouring inside of her was due to hurt. A hurt she had experienced long ago while still young.
 She came from a large family and she was the unnoticed child.
Everytime she trued to do something good to get her parents affection she rece…
