It’s like though, a thick blanket is wrapped around you so tightly, suffocating you, and you’re gasping for air to trying to let yourself free. And suddenly, there’s gush of strong wind blowing the blanket away, in a blink of an eye so suddenly, you’re left rather perplexed than in peace. This thick blanket could be loneliness or anxiety. It could also be depression. And sometimes it’s not just the after effects of a breakup, a loved one’s death or any other unexpected tragedy. Sometimes it’s because you’re feeling like though you’ve got no purpose, like though you’re living a life that’s pathetically meaningless. And you’re hit with it like a stone of bricks very occasionally, it’s frustrating. But how exactly can you give more meaning to your life? Read below for a few tips.
Seeking Your Purpose.
With social media screaming about young individuals doing admirably great things and tons of others showing off their success on Facebook and Instagram posts, you can be left pondering what your Purpose is. These questions can torment you and eat you alive, and the way you deal with it is significantly important. First you need to know that to have a purpose in life doesn’t mean you need to set goals and achieve big things. In fact it means to bring meaning to others lives. And that’s how you can bring meaning to your own. So dwelling on the fact that you’re probably up to no use and getting your anxiety driven up isn’t how you deal with it. First stop rushing things. Then be curious not anxious, and think which way you can help others or give value to them to make yourself satisfied. Instead of letting your thoughts consume you, have patience and gratitude and believe what you seek, will seek you. If you’re already too stressed about it and think it’s too late, then consider going for a session of depression counselling in Adelaide.
Building Close Relationships.
You might already have a dozen of friends on your Facebook, but give this a thought, if you deactivated your account and didn’t respond to any message a family member or friend sends, how many are actually going to call you? How many are going to check on you? If this gets you wondering how it’s anything to do with this article’s topic, then here’s how. Having tons of friends around you isn’t important, but having a few you’re close to is. You’re married but, when was the last time you had an intimate conversation with your husband? You say you’ve got best friends but when was the last time you made an effort to show up at her door with her favourite ice-cream? When you care for a few people, listen to them and be there throughout, holding on to them, they’ll lookout for you. When you’ve got people to care for and people who care for you, you’re giving more meaning to your life. So work on relationships, call your best friend, send flowers to your mother and go for couples counselling is you think you and your partner need one.
Stop Comparing And Start Giving.
So what if you’re still lagging behind and spending your weekends working overtime, whilst a good friend of yours is already the C.E.O of the most iconic company in the industry? So what if your neighbour’s socks have designer prints and yours have rat bites? The key to add meaning to your life is by understanding its worth and not degrading yourself. In fact, start giving even in if it’s only a little. Every single day, find a way you can help a stranger. Be it a smile or some dollars, it doesn’t matter, the point is to give. When you’re helping someone you’re doing something optimistic for yourself and the other party involved thus, giving yourself a reason to live.
