Waiting for something feeling

Recommended Posts

My entire life, I felt like I've been waiting for something, but I don't know what it is. It used to be "I can't wait to get out of school" and then "I want to get married", etc. But now that I have everything, the feeling is still there. It's not the absence of God. I found him already. It's a general longing for something that I am clueless about. Is there something psychological about this? Time keeps ticking on and on. I'm now middle aged, yet I still have the feeling. Are humans waiting for death? I don't believe that's it, but, it is inevitable regardless.

Has anyone else experienced this feeling?

Yes! But I choose goals. Or look for opportunities. I would describe the feeling as anxiousness. But I am always anticipating a positive outcome. I was surprised to learn that the state of being anxious is called anxiety. Anxiety is commonly associated with negative thoughts. Yet I seem to experience only positive thoughts instead. It is the same feeling I have commonly experienced on Christmas morning. The gleeful anticipation or anxiousness of what is about to unfold.

when you say "now that I have everything" implies you were under the impression that successful achievement was equivalent to fulfilling ones purpose.

Perhaps the later got lost along the way. (not saying i've found mine either)

Want to help me find an old photo?

Ok, but being anxious about.... nothing? Not knowing what I am being anxious about? I am experiencing more of a feeling that "something is coming" and it apparently isn't bad. That something never seems to happen.

What old photo do you want to find?

I have not achieved everything, but I realized my limitations and am not unhappy. I just still haven't found what I'm looking for. haha.

Couldn't resist.

I think my purpose is to raise 2 beautiful kids. After that, I'll probably have empty nest syndrome. lol

yep - well played.

On the photo - is there a way to share those details privately? I would rather prefer that (and nothing to be concerned with) but it aligns with your recent posts about the way back machine.

As it pertains to your dilemna - I have beautiful kids - they will add countless dimensions to your life - but I would suggest that becoming satiated with your own being will somehow take precedence.

I find there are things I need to change about my circumstances - but that will come at a cost i m not prepared to pay - or will unfairly burden others with.
