“Still don’t know what I was waitin’ for and my time was runnin’ wild; a million dead end streets and every time I thought I’d got it made, it seemed the taste was not so sweet.” ~lyrics from ‘Changes’ by David Bowie
There are times in life when we feel lost. Something seems off, but we can’t put our finger on it. These feelings can manifest as boredom, restlessness, or even depression.
When this happens, one common scenario is to push harder. You put on a great game face and tell yourself that this will pass, to just ignore it and it will go away. Sometimes it does go away briefly.
You fill your life with activity and distractions, and maybe you feel better for a while. But in the quiet moments, the emptiness creeps back in.
