It’s perfectly human to feel lost or confused. Sometimes, we tend to lose ourselves or sense of individuality; constantly running in circles - questioning our worth, trying to understand our minds and probably wondering if certain things are worth it. I guess it’s safe to say we have all felt this way at certain points in our lives, one way or another. Going through this inevitably exhausting feeling that always lingers at the back of our minds, somehow waiting to test our limits. Lol sounds absurd but I have come to the random conclusion that we all feel this way at least far more than often, so it’s human? I guess and it’s completely okay; all that matters is how best you try to pull yourself out of situations like this.
According to the National Institute on Mental Health (NIMH); nearly 10% of adults will experience mood swings at certain points in their lives, basically- it’s absolutely normal to feel moody or out of place once in a while. Sometimes, we tie to our environment or people around us or maybe the weather but who knows; why we can feel this way because of numerous understandable reasons. Certainly not over-emphasizing or reiterating how mentally exhausting and draining it might feel. To be honest nothing comes easy, irrespective of how hard we might try to decipher or understand our minds.
Focusing on how best we can stop this from interfering with our daily lives should be our top-most priority, learning what best works for us and creating a seamless routine targeted towards improving our daily lives. While we recognize how hard this might be, we have curated a special guide from us to anyone currently struggling or feeling the exact same way. Remember, there is always a light at the end of tunnel. Take each day as it comes with its ups and downs.
