Some may say that there is no such thing as the “wrong” path, and that every path is the right path. But is this true? Are we really being honest with ourselves when we say this? From personal experience, I know what it feels like to be on the “wrong path”. By “wrong”, I am referring to a path that does not suit you, serve you, or bring your soul alive. You know in your heart, soul, and mind that there is something bigger and better out there for you.
These paths only serve the purpose of redirecting us to a more ideal path, and they provide us insight into what we don’t want out from life. When we pay attention to the little feelings that bubble up in our soul, we can live a life that is guided by our intuition. A life guided by your intuition is never the wrong path.
Here are 3 signs you may not be on the right path in life:
1) You feel empty inside
You aren’t excited to wake up in the morning, and you feel like you will be unhappy for the rest of your life if things continue on the same way as they do.
If you feel like your current life is unsustainable for the rest of your life, and that if things don’t change you will go through your whole life miserable, then something has to change.
This is your souls way of communicating to you to go deep, look inside yourself, and find listen to where your intuition is trying to lead you.
2) You feel like you are wasting your time
Life is short, and you feel as though your life here needs to be spent in a way that is more fulfilling to you.
If you feel like you are wasting your time, there is probably a good reason why.
Not everyone can have their dream job, but everyone has a longing to leave their creative mark on the world.
The truth is, if you aren’t creating, serving, and growing spiritually, you will always feel like you are wasting your time.
3) You try to fill the void
You spend a great deal of your time trying to fill the void inside yourself. Addictions, partying, and Netflix are used to distract you fro
m deep internal feeling of need to change paths in life. You often search for material possessions as a way to supplement your lack of purpose and meaning in life. The “void” you are experiencing is your souls desire to come alive through your lifestyle. Don’t fill it or ignore, allow it to direct you to a better path for you.
The point of this article is not to encourage self-condemnation, guilt, or sadness. It is to inspire us to look inside of ourselves, be honest, and see if we are truly on the path that we KNOW we should be on. Maybe we aren’t spending enough time with our family and friends.
Maybe we are having our gifts suppressed by the jobs we work, or we on a self-destructive path of addiction, self-hate, and self-denial.
Whatever it may be, it’s important to listen to your intuition and follow the wisdom of your heart. If you know in your soul that something needs to change, either your soul is mistaken, or something needs to change.
