Lately I feel like I’m floundering. I’m trying to get my degree even though I haven’t picked a major. And to top it off, I don’t even know what I’m going to do with my degree! It’s just a stopgap measure while I try to get a handle on who I am.
Is there a fundamental disconnect in me that keeps me from finding my way? If this is the way my whole life is going to be, then I desperately need some advice, because I’m lost at sea.
Where the hell am I supposed to go from here?
Yeah, you’re pretty spacey but I’m not sure that’s a disconnect. As a matter of fact, it could indicate the exact opposite.
I understand you have no idea what you’re doing and feel as if you’re fumbling in the dark. But just think about being exactly the opposite of you. Think about being one of those people, who think they know exactly what they’re doing. You know, they’re twenty-four years old and they’ve got their whole life planned. They’ve got it all figured out.
You know what happens to them? Well, to a small minority, nothing. But most of them wake up five years later and say, “what the hell was I thinking? Whose bullshit life am I living?” And at that point, they’re very confused! They basically have to retrace their steps and try to figure out where they disconnected.
Fact is, a person who feels like they are flailing may very well be taking the shortest route to fulfillment. Because it is in this “void space” that real clarity comes. So here’s what I think.
I think you are very connected – you’re just connected to the ethereal world. And if that sounds too woo-woo for you, just consider traditional religion. Religious types pray to “God” for guidance. They pray for direction from a source outside themselves and no one bothers them about it! So this is what I would recommend.
I suggest you embrace your Fairy nature. Ask the universe to show you in which direction your path lies and wait for it to be revealed. Then, once you have your answer, gently adjust your oar and drift yourself in that direction, smiling all the way.
