Most people hum along as normal for years on end without really thinking much about their life’s direction. Things are pretty much the same every day, and that seems normal.
Every once in a while, though, your thoughts change. You wonder whether you should be going through the motions or if it would be better to do something different.
Human beings love certainty. However, they also love uncertainty. Most people have a love-hate relationship with both. They love the fact that they have secure finances, for instance, but they hate the idea that they will need to work the same job for another forty years.
That’s why it’s always a good idea to keep a lookout for signs that your life might need a major revamp.
You’re Always Thinking About The Past To Get Away From The Present
People who don’t like their current situation will often romanticize the past to escape it. They’ll imagine just how wonderful things were before, and how awful they are now.
If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. It’s a common habit. However, it’s also destructive because it prevents you from enjoying your life right now.
The trick here is to make a new present reality you can accept and to remind yourself that the past wasn’t actually that great. You still had problems then, even if they seem insignificant from today’s perspective.
You Feel Numb
Another worrying sign is feeling numb. In other words, you don’t really care what happens next or how things unfold.
Usually, this sensation occurs because of some sort of trauma or depression. You’ll want to talk to a mental health professional for guidance and advice if you have this experience.
You Feel Like You Are Settling
Never settle in life, particularly in matters of the heart. If you do, you’re asking for trouble.
Always seek out the best thing you can have for your personal happiness. Try to find a way to figure out what you want and then experiment. Avoid working for years towards a goal that ultimately disappoints you. That’s a recipe for failure.
You Resist Opportunities Because You Fear The Unknown
Turning down opportunities in life is usually a mistake. Not only are they rare, but they can also help you move to a higher place, well beyond where you are now.
Unfortunately, many people say no to them because they fear the unknown. They create a prison for themselves in their minds and never move beyond it.
You Feel Disenchanted With Where You Are
One of the main reasons for long distance moving is that people feel unhappy with where they are right now. They are desperate for a change but don’t know how to make it happen.
The solution here is to take massive action. You need to do something big to feel better about where you are and who you want to be. If you don’t act, you probably won’t emerge from your situation any better off. Always ask yourself where you want to be and the biggest problems facing your life.
