Feeling Stuck and Directionless in Life

At some point, we get the feeling as though we are stuck in a life that is now bringing us little joy, excitement, spiritual growth with the future not looking that great! It does not necessary mean that you are unhappy with your life, you are having a strong inner knowing it is time for something to change in your life. It may sometimes feel as though we are going backwards.

There are times when we feel we are spinning our wheels without any forward movement or change, especially in our spiritual progress. This can be especially frustrating when we have just gone through a time of major growth and gained a plethora of knowledge about who we are as spiritual and physical beings. This is the way growth unfolds; periods of intense “aha” moments that give way to times that feel like stagnation. During those flat line times, we may feel discouraged not making any forward strides of change. The good thing is, we cannot fall backwards, only move forward in our soul’s journey. It is like the old saying, “Once you see, you cannot unsee”.

Every step on our life path is meaningful, even when it seems we have taken a step backwards to make two steps forward. Intense growth requires that we rest energetically, putting our life on hold for a time in order to fully integrate the new energies being imprinted within you, creating a new future. That stagnation time is preparation for the big changes ahead.

Here are a few things to remember when you are feeling directionless. Change takes place regardless; your only control is how you prepare for it; in frustration and fear or feeling excited and ready for that new adventure.

  1. Feeling stuck is a sign it’s now time to make changes in your life! If you feel stuck, this simply means that your life situation isn’t working for you anymore. Whether it’s your job, your relationship, your house, your circle of friends or your hobbies, if you are not excited about them anymore, it’s probably time to finally do something to change it.
  2. Baby steps is progress. You may think if it is not a BIG change that happens in your life, it doesn’t count but it is the small changes that create the major ones.
  3. You don’t have to know the end game to move forward with changes. The hardest part about feeling directionless, is that sometimes you don’t know why you feel stuck or what you can do to make the “numbness” and “emptiness” go away.
  4. Nothing changes if you do nothing to change it. The unpleasant truth about getting out of the stuck feeling in life is that if you are waiting for something or someone to suddenly make those changes for you, you don’t get very far. YOU are the only one who can put change into action, so do SOMETHING!
  5. New beginnings can feel like endings. Always when a new door opens in life, an old door closes and those endings may make you feel sad and disappointed as you leave people and circumstances behind. It will be easier if you see it as the opportunity for the new beginning that it is.
  6. Beautiful things start happening when you clear your life of negative thoughts and actions. Negativity often comes hand in hand with feeling directionless. Make it your number one priority to remove toxicity from your life, starting by surrounding yourself with positive people and getting rid of the negative ones.
  7. Believe what your heart tells you, not what others say. Remember it’s YOUR life.
  8. Stop overthinking. Whatever is going to happen is going to happen. You cannot control everything, so learn to let go and trust the flow of life. As long as you are of positive thought and energy, the outcome will always be to your advantage.
  9. If it’s meant to be, it will happen at the right time, right place and for the right reasons. Even though you are the one who is responsible for making changes in your life, you need to stay open-minded about how it arrives and accept that it may happen in a different way than you had planned.

Susan Z’s Verdict

I love the saying; “We make plans and God laughs.” Frustrating, absolutely, but the ultimate lesson we are taught is to let life unfold as it is meant to. All prayers are answered, the difference between the outcome you were hoping for and one you didn’t expect is the ability to receive in faith and self-love that whatever shows up will have a positive far-reaching effect we may not be able to see at the moment. It’s all good!
