3 A sense of being lost-
This is actually very common. And happens to the best of us. Sooner or later there comes a time in our lives when we feel like being completely directionless and whatever purpose we had in life up to that point seems meaningless. It seems that there is no way forward as all the directions are as confusing and uninviting as the rest. At such times it is also very common to feel detached from everyone else, even to people who are closest to you. If it happens, don’t give in to the melancholy and keep in touch with your friends and family. Talking to them might also help you in finding yourself again, and a new purpose in life.
4 Being annoyed for no reason-
It is also very common to feel annoyed with anything and everything in life. But you need to make efforts to pull yourself out of this state because it will only get worse from here. You will soon get frustrated and irritated at everything. In such cases, try calming yourself instead of reacting on these impulses. If you act on them, it will only set on a chain reaction which will lead to more anger and frustration.
5 Sense of Isolation-
As mentioned before, the feeling of being isolated from everyone will soon catch up to you. In this time, instead of feeling bad about yourself, you can focus your energies inwards and reflect on yourself and your life. This is not a time to feel bad about yourself, rather to assess your life up to this point. And anytime you need help, don’t hesitate in reaching out to your close ones. It is very good if you feel like taking advice from them and opening up to them.
6 Reminiscing about the past a lot-
As it happens when we are experiencing changes, we start to sugar coat the past. We keep looking back in time and only see the good things even though the bad things still linger in memory. There is no use in wallowing in the past. The present might be overwhelming and you would crave the security of the past, but it is an illusion. Rather focus your energies on making sure that your future is not unplanned and that your present is not as bad as it seems.
7 Any sort of haphazard behavior-
If you find yourself to be swayed towards habits that are harmful in order to cope with the changes, stop right there. If things are overwhelming, drinking or smoking will not help. Rather try to get in touch with friends who might help you in coping.
These are a few indicators of a huge shift taking place in your life. Such times are trying and overwhelming indeed, but instead of getting scared you should ask for help from your trusted friends. Their support will make sure you survive through this difficult period.
