Sometimes you have no idea that you have been stuck in life. It is easy to get into a rut and not realize it. It starts with feeling uncomfortable with just everyday activities and may eventually make you feel like living a purposeless life.
Being in such a situation for a short period of time is fine but you can’t get stuck in a rut forever. You must face the challenges that life throws at you and rise above them no matter what. Check out these signs to know if you feel stuck as well so that you can start moving forward –
- You constantly live in the past
You feel stuck in the past situations. While it’s OK to be nostalgic at times but it’s not alright to feel unsatisfied in the present and look back at the past every time.
- You have nothing to move forward to
There is nothing that interests you on day to day basis that makes you foresee the future. The road ahead seems blurry to you and you feel lost or confused.
- You spend most of your time imagining a different version of your life
Escapism is your go-to resort when you are not happy with the present. You imagine an alternate future and spend most of your time daydreaming.
- You just do things for the sake
You live in autopilot mode pretty much.
- Nothing excites you anymore
You can’t remember the last time you felt really excited about something.
- You are either lazy or feel exhausted all the time
Since nothing stimulates you to make a move, you constantly feel tired or lazy. Most of the time, you just want to nap over and over again.
- You don’t care about your appearance anymore
It used to be your priority but now you neglect yourself physically.
- You constantly ask yourself, “What am I doing here?”
You constantly feel that you are somewhere you don’t want to be and keep asking yourself this question – “What am I doing here?” Look for aspirations and try to change your environment in this case.
