There are times when we can lose sight of who we are. The realities of daily life can trigger feelings of being lost and without purpose. Significant life events are often a root cause – breakups, bereavements and other traumas are the usual suspects.
For others, these feelings may accumulate and grow over time. Demanding careers, partners and families can lead to a loss of personal identity. As a result, you can find yourself with no clear direction, purpose or motivation to succeed in your endeavours.
Discovering who you are takes conscious effort. When you lose your sense of certainty over your life’s mission, your identity, your key goals, your weaknesses, your strengths… it is important to understand the root cause. A good place to start would be to examine any past traumas, shifting priorities and major changes to your personal circumstances. Life coaching can definitely help you with that.
Recovering your sense of identity is not a simple task. Without support, some people struggle with this for several years. However, if this resonates with you, it does not have to be this way.
