You want more from life – but are unsure what.
There are times when you feel like something is missing in your life – like you’re not happy with what you have and don’t know why.
Maybe it’s time to take a step back and find some answers.
What are the things that make you feel good about yourself?
This question may help you find the answer to why we need more than what we currently have going on in our lives.
You are losing yourself while doing for others.
Do you feel that you are doing things for others?
Constantly doing for others can make you feel like you lost yourself when dissatisfaction festers. You may find that you are no longer living your life for yourself, and instead, the only important thing is making someone else happy.
This type of behavior often leads to depression or, even worse, a feeling of powerlessness. Turning this situation around requires some tough love!
Stop focusing on what others want from you and start thinking about what YOU want out of life. Making that decision is hard and takes courage, but once you get back in control of your happiness, everything will fall into place again – just like magic!
Do you often ask, “Who am I anyway?”
You are a hard-working, kind-hearted, and thoughtful person. You care about your family, friends, and community. But sometimes, you must stop and ask yourself: Who am I anyway?
You may feel like the answer to that question is out of reach or that someone else should be figuring this out for you.
But it’s important to recognize that there is no one way to live life; everyone has their idea of what makes them happy and fulfilled in the end.
Wanting to achieve happiness doesn’t mean we don’t need support from time to time – we all do! However, understanding our values will help us make decisions about how we want our lives to look going forward.
Build strength and resilience and be the best version of yourself.
One of the most common things people do when they feel like life is not going their way is to want more.
With all the information about how great it would be if only I had a better job or if only I had a spouse and kids, we can find ourselves feeling trapped in our current situation. You need to realize that fighting against what you have now will weaken your current situation even further.
Allowing yourself time for self-care and doing activities that make you happy so that those negative thoughts start becoming less frequent are essential steps to take.
The voice telling us to “have more” weakens our current happiness by making us believe something is missing from our lives.
There is a voice inside of you fighting for more.
When we are dissatisfied with life, it can feel like the only thing to do is change everything.
But if that voice inside of you wants more, and nothing else will satisfy, fighting that feeling weakens what you currently have and leaves your identity in question.
Therapy offers a way forward – one where you don’t need to stop being who you already are but rather explore how all those parts of yourself can fit together so much better.
