This may seem obvious, but feeling fulfilled and satisfied with life 24/7 is practically impossible.

Every once in a while, many of us get this kind of emptiness feeling, where we feel as if we haven’t done enough in our lives or don’t know which direction we want to go in.

While it’s totally normal to experience this from time to time, there is usually something going on in our lives that ultimately leads to us feeling empty or incomplete. When we struggle to detect those issues, we start to second-guess ourselves or blame ourselves for things we cannot change. 

So, instead of wasting your time doing that, here are some reasons why you may feel some emptiness in your life to give you a little peace of mind. 

You struggle to know who you are

Often, when we become super invested in our relationships or jobs, we lose our sense of self. It becomes really easy to put on a ‘front’ all the time and put on a mask every day, hiding who you really are.

You may want to take some time to ‘unplug’ and take a break from it all. Take a day off work, log out of social media, and go on a solo adventure. Remember what it is that makes you well, you. 

You can’t find balance

One of the best ways to feel satisfied in life is by maintaining a good balance. For instance, if you struggle to balance time and energy for work, your family, friends, relationships, self-care, and hobbies, you’re not going to be able to feel great about your situation.
