We've probably all experienced that stomach sinking feeling when your younger, the world is your oyster, you still haven't been here long so exploring and taking everything is key.So here you are in the supermarket, having a great time. But then you explore for that little bit too long because as you turn around you see your Mum is no longer positioned where she is. You've lost your Mum. You're running along the aisles tears streaming down your face, as strangers pass you. You've lost your Mum, you've lost her.
Well, sometimes life, in general, can feel like you're young again and you've lost your Mum at the supermarket. And when you feel like this, you notice you're lost, you notice you feel helpless, you panic. You start to overthink, compare yourself, you worry. But I've eventually come to realize that feeling lost is normal. I promise you.
It's okay to feel lost.
I have felt this very way recently, and it's an awful feeling. But what is important to remember that we did end up finding our Mum at the supermarket again, and we will feel less lost in life again too. In these moments when you feel like you are wandering but not quite sure what direction to take, my advice is to focus on what you do have. Your friends. Your family. Your hobbies. Your passions. Your favourite food. Your favourite show, Your favourite music. And talk to someone, because sharing to someone that you feel lost, well they might help you feel found. But if you're wondering around on your own, it makes it that extra bit harder. Sharing your problems with people really do help.
