Yes 100 times over. I've done everything I thought was my passion and ended up being miserable. I all ways loved business ran my own and it did nothing for me. Same thing with relationships. The only thing I like to do is sit in my room and waste time, now if only I could find a way to make a living at that.
I just feel like the whole "everyone has a purpose" thing to be completely ridiculous. Just like soulmates. Its all unicorn dreams and candy cane kisses. In other words new agey bull but that's just me.
Hi Mr. Weeble,
In the early years of our lives we are taught to listen to others before we listen to ourselves. We are told what careers we should have, how much we should make, how we should act, what our interests should be, etc.
This serves a purpose, but it also gets us confused on what our true passions really are. As a result, we end up going after what we think we like instead of what we truly like.
This may be why you pursued businesses and relationships that didn't fulfill you. And why you don't feel motivated to do anything at this time. Because you've been chasing things you thought you wanted, but you actually didn't. You were just taught to want those things, but they don't actually fulfill you at the core level of your being.
I recommend meditating 20-30 min a day to get yourself listening to your inner self again. When you get in touch with your core being, you will start getting interested in the world around you and can start to interact and play with it again.
And it will open you up to discovering what your actual interests are without the judgement that was taught to you by others in your earlier years of life.
Hope you try it and if you do, let me know how it goes =)
