Would you be here if you had one?

I have felt lost all my life, I don't know where I'm going or what I'm doing. All for what purpose? I have many feelings and thoughts that I can never tell.. mainly because I don't have anyone. I say that, knowing it is likely to be a result of me subconsciously not want too. I try but nothing comes out, I ignore and get on with life. I don't expect anyone to read this or reply, I think this is just one way of telling someone.. I'm lost.

I was lost without God in my life. I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior many years ago and have NEVER felt lost since. Jesus said: "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life" I now know purpose and direction and God's forgiveness, and love and peace everyday. Praise God!

Those are big decisions, what you want to live for, purpose, existence, and so on. But, you have the right to make that decision, so it could be worse, right?

Don't try to climb to the top of the mountain on the first try. Start smaller. Sometimes, purpose is earned, not granted.

Most people that don't just accept going with what is told to them as fact tend to feel lost at one time or another. The fact is, this feeling of lost sometimes comes as a precursor to depression, often from lack of sunlight. Doesn't mean it's the case for you, but if you get out and mow the grass or go for a long walk and your thinking doesn't clear up, then it's something deeper. We all have to choose our paths in life, our belief, whether we follow in our parent's foot steps or not, and who we listen to. If you want to know where to begin, give up all desire for anything and forget all that you think you know and wander. Wander through books that make you think, and woodlands that just allow you to exist. I have found that in getting truly lost sometimes my path becomes clear. Good luck, and may you find your way. And if nothing else works, talk to God, it has helped me and I get answers, not always when I want them and sometimes years later, but it was obvious when the answer was there.
