Why It's Okay to Feel Lost

Wednesday, July 1, 2015


I've spent the past few days becoming reacquainted with the city, or the place I'll soon be calling home again. It's funny the way New York works. Despite having this jungle of opportunities, it is easy to lose yourself. Lately I have been feeling a bit lost, but for the first time in my life, I think it's okay.

I turned 21 this year. I went to China, I experienced the world, and I returned with utter confusion about things I never questioned before. The feeling of being lost is not easily explained, but it is one that a lot of us share simultaneously. To be blunt, it is pretty damn scary. But I think there is a certain beauty in feeling lost that only makes us stronger in the end. It means that we have choices and the freedom to do something about them. It means we are able to question our futures and mold them into whatever we want them to be.

Out of feeling lost I have made some changes in my life, both difficult and minor. It's okay to decide you need a change. It means you're ready to grow. Start somewhere, anywhere, and start now. This feeling will only last forever if you let it.

  6. We're at that age where feeling confused is normal. It's okay to not be sure all the time and just be curious and explore. Wish I could go to china and live in NY. Lucky you!
