  • Nope, I think you feel lost when you're not happy with the current direction and you don't trust that it's going anywhere promising.

  • Yeah sometimes I feel lost. I generally know where my life is headed career wise and it is and going to be lots of hard work. But with regards to where it is headed in other areas, I have no idea, what I want in other aspects I'm still trying to figure it out. Like where I wanna live, if I would want to get married, will I ever have children etc. Sometimes it feels so overwhelming, and then I remind myself this is all part of 'growing up' getting to know yourself and building the kind of life you want. :)

  • I'm not lost per say I know exactly what I am doing and were I am going, but I guess you could say I expect some unexpected things to happen.

  • Honestly, yep I am lost at the moment.
    Not sure if what I'm doing now is what I WANT to do. I'm scared of finding out what it is, when it's too late

  • Yep I did. Figured it out mostly by the 2nd half though. I think that is somewhat common. You go from the end of childhood and are practically thrown into adulthood. Lots of decisions to make that have long running impacts.

  • No, not really. I had a good idea what I planned to do right out of high school and I followed through with it and I'm still in that same field.

    • Granted, my personal life is quite a mess - there isn't one. But I'm planning to take care of that soon - if I can.

  • Every GDMF day of my GDMF life.

    Yeah, that pretty much sums it right up. :)

  • Yes, and no. I still do not know what I want to have as a career, but I have several ideas and possibilities. I enjoy hanging with my friends, and doing whatever the day brings me. Sometimes I go to the beach, sometimes I just play video games, and sometimes I just hang out with my friends. When I think about what I do, its almost has my whole entire life is procrastination.

  • Lost?
    Let me tell you something: If you ever don't feel lost in this planet Earth... Then you should lose yourself. At least try it for a day :) I had to lose myself to find myself! And I might do that again soon too!!!

  • yes, totally. In college, we are so focus on "who i want to be" and "what field do i want" then once you graduate your goals changed as if back to step 1 coz of what @JoeCensored is saying. It's weird that we work hard to get that degree then after that we don't really know what to do next (not literally, ofc next step is to get a job and be independent).

  • Yes, that's the situation I'm in now. People expect so much of you but you're really very lost. I don't know what I want to get out of life. I don't really feel like I know who I truly am yet. I'm still developing so how do you make permanent decisions on a growing personality?

  • it's a weird feeling for me. I'm not lost, but at the same time i feel like I'm gonna face a few unexpected obstacles to get to where i wanna be, so that will switch things up I'm sure.

  • I don't know exactly where my life is headed. I know I should get my degree soon. But the possibilities are endless, will I go into the field I'm studying for, will I go into something different but similar, will I do something completely different? Will I be happy?

    It's like... there's so much life ahead of you, but you feel like you're losing time on finding a path to be happy on.
