There is a point in everyone’s lives when you will be asking whether or not you have already made it. Whether you already have everything you wanted and have achieved your life’s goals. However, there is also a point in life that even after you have already made your fifteen-year-old self happy, you still feel incomplete.
Most people are already going through a rough time for the past two years. Understandably, everybody can go through this, but it can be alarming and confusing either way. To help you out, here are the signs that you are yet to be self-fulfilled.
You’re Feeling Unsettled
Have you ever heard the saying “follow your gut”? It is one of the most important times when you have to follow your gut feeling because there is no scientific reasoning for why you are having second thoughts about your life decisions.
Say, for example, if you are someone who already finished a history major but still wants to pursue a dental assisting course program since you were young, you would feel unsettled until you take that path and know for yourself. What could happen if you follow your child’s dream of being a dentist? What then? Would you still be in the same place you are right now? Perhaps not. See, humans feel unsettled when they subconsciously know that something is not right. Like the rest of Earth creatures, people have this prey-like sense to help them know when there is danger lurking nearby. However, in this case, it is that gut feeling that something is not right. If your gut feel tells you that you have yet to do things that make you happy, chances are it is right, and you ought to listen.
You are Having a Hard Time to Fit In and Belong
Have you ever worked in a workplace where people are nice, but somehow they just do not fall on the same wavelength? Well, that is one sign that you should change jobs, not just your job, but the nature of your work itself.
It is no secret that today’s generation has been wired to be financially driven. Even when you are supposed to be carefree and studying, you are already aware of the burden of having college loans and medical bills. Hence, it is only understandable that there is an existing rate of mismatched job employment. It means jobs are filled by workers whose educational background and skills do not meet the description. Although there is nothing wrong with having and working on a mismatched job role, it puts the employee and the employer at a disadvantage. Business owners would need to invest more in training, and transition and workers would possibly fail to be at their innovative best. Yes, things can be learned, especially at work, but working every day in a job that does not spark something in you is one quickest way to die young.
You Still Do Not See Yourself Settling Down
When people talk about settling down, having a family is usually what comes to mind, and let us stick with that. During this era, it is now being accepted that not all women want to have children. Although it is still frowned upon in some parts of the globe, feminism has never been this loud. Some men tend to shake off the idea of having kids as early as thirty too, and usually, that is because they are still enjoying their bachelor lives. There is no right or wrong answer as to when is the right time to settle down, but if you still do not see yourself having a family, that means you still aren’t ready. People also say that no one is ready; things just happen. However, being responsible parents starts with planning as early as possible.
There are tons of factors you need to pave before anything else. Factors such as your mental health, emotional maturity, and financial stability. All of which you would not be able to achieve until you become self-fulfilled, and things you need to make sure you do not pass on any unwanted trauma to your children growing up. It means being sure they would not have to be in debt in college too. Think about it.
Life is full of surprises. One day you want this, and then after a few years, you don’t want it anymore. Hence, the only rule that makes sense is, “Just Do It.” You wouldn’t know what happens until you do the things in your mind.
