You have a great job, a nice house and a husband or wife that you love dearly. You feel fulfilled in your career and your personal life, and you’re optimistic about the future.
But at the same time, you’re sad, and you don’t know why. There’s a part of you that’s missing, but you don’t know what it is, and you feel guilty for feeling down for no apparent reason.
First, it’s important for you to know that this feeling is completely normal. Many people have sad feelings without a certain event or circumstance to tie them to. You have no reason to feel guilty about your feelings – you’re allowed to feel whatever emotion you want to, and you don’t have to justify it to anyone.
However, it’s important for you to identify where these feelings are coming from if you’d like to work on fixing them. Here are a few things to consider:
- Is there someone you’ve wronged in the past? If so, you might have some lingering guilt. If it’s possible, you should make amends with this person – it’s never too late to say you’re sorry. Tying up loose ends can help you feel more content, and it may ease some negative feelings you’re experiencing.
- Are there things you haven’t crossed off your bucket list yet? You might be living the type of life you imagined for yourself, but maybe there are bigger things you haven’t accomplished yet, like going to Paris or bungee jumping. If so, make a list of all the things you’d still like to do, and get to work! If you’re feeling anxious, enlist a loved one to help you tackle the goals on your list.
- Do you feel like you aren’t giving back? Helping others is an incredibly rewarding feeling, but it’s also easy to feel guilty if you aren’t doing much for your community, especially when you see all the negative news of the day. There are dozens of different charities that are always looking for volunteers. Find one or two in your community, and see how you can help out.
- Is the life you dreamed of not what you thought it’d be? Maybe all your life you dreamed about being a mother, but having kids isn’t fulfilling you the way you thought. Or maybe you’ve dedicated your life to your career, but your current job isn’t bringing you satisfaction. It’s okay to realise that the life you wanted isn’t what it was cracked up to be. Find other ways to live out your dreams, and see what feels right.
Are you still puzzled as to why you’re feeling down in the dumps? You should talk to a medical professional to see if a chemical imbalance is to blame. If so, you and your doctor can work out a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle. Or why not call one of our phone psychics and psychic readers at Absolute Soul Secrets?
