I am hearty grateful to God for blessing me with supportive and loving family and friends, I do face some usual ups and downs like anyone else but i cant say, i ever had have to struggle hard for something, no financial problems so far, no physical or social problem either..means I have a happy life and i am happy really with everything in my life..just sometimes feel something is missing, i feel like i have to do something which is undone yet..I dont know whats that and why i feel like this :?

I remember a story in the Bible which goes like this. there was one righteous man who asked Jesus on how to live a Christian life. Jesus said that the man should help the poor, do good things, and so on. The man replied that he already did everything that Jesus said and yet he somewhat feels that there is something lacking. The man was very wealthy. Jesus told the man to give all he possess to the poor and follow him. The man went away and he was sad because he didn't feel giving all the riches he work hard. Just imagine that guy seemed to have a perfect life already and yet he felt that there is still something lacking in his life that he can't tell. That maybe the same thing with you. Pray to God for guidance and for him to give you the answer for what you feel. Try to help someone else. Every time I do that, I feel satisfied and happy.

Thankyou donatello for the lovely response :) yes i do feel that i want to help others, when i see poor beggars or read articles and news about people who have to struggle for their daily needs i feel guilty, i dont know why..I am not that rich to organise a social service on a big scale, nor can leave everything for helping others as i have a family which has some expectations from me also..but i try to help on my level whatever i can do without affecting or making trouble for anyone..

I feel that way too. Sure my life could be better and yet I want to feel grateful for what I do have. For me it is the lack of knowing that is unsettling. I know there is something out there but just do not know what it is yet. I want to be impowered to be motivated and be very passionate about my goals. Keep breathing is one of them. Not sure about the others.

You are right thanks, I guess it is like couriousity we seek it but it always lies beyond our reach. So what do we do but keep reaching?

thats why wise men advice to live in present, to feel every moment. Past has gone can't be changed..future is unknown can not be controlled but we can try to shape it by our present doings. I believe, if one is honest for itself, able to face its conscious future will be shining for sure..

Maybe you haven't achieved your full potential and haven't accomplished what you wanted to accomplish. We are all here for a purpose, the purpose is not known and as to why we are still here, nobody knows, there are challenges that await us, and just when you think you become contented with life, life has a weird way of changing everything and sometimes not for the better.

yes, I have some dreams for life and my loved ones and an endless curiosity to know and learn everything and sometimes a fear for unknown, unseen future..

I think all of us sometimes feel this way. It is like searching for something that we really do not know what it is. So why not go out and just stroll along the park and think things through. You might just find the missing piece to make your day great.

Hi there. I think sometimes even if we do see that our lives are just perfect with no known issues on the surface... we would still feel as though something is missing. I think that is normal. People do have emotions and often when we see how other people's life is that is the time we would feel the burden that something is not right or something needs to be improved or we need more in our lives.
