Do you Ever feel like you were meant for something else

January 29, 2008 8:06pm CST
Interested to know if anybody else ever thinks that they were meant for something else. Whether it be that you were meant to be in another occupation than you are, whether you feel you meant to be in a different place etc. Myself, I feel that I'm meant for bigger and better things, I am having trouble figuring out what that thing actually is. Maybe I'm just meant for a different lifetime with different people. Would like to know what anyone thinks

Yes, my life has not turned out the way I would have liked in many areas. I think I've made too many concessions to other people's needs and expectations. When I was young I wanted to be an artist and was accepted into a highly regarded art school but my parents hated the idea and my mother refused to speak to me. After a year of rejection I gave up. I should have fought for my ambition but it can be very difficult to stand up to your parents. Since then my children and family have had to be a priority.

Yes, I think most people think this. But its hard to find what you were meant for, but i think i am close to finding it but it takes alot of thought and research of careers to find right job then even more work to get your dream job

I have this feeling all the time. It is hard to say what I think I was meant for. I just don't feel I was meant to be a banker for one thing, yet I have having trouble finding another job I am interested in applying for. I want my own business, but have no real direction on that either. I have a few ideas, but no real plans as of yet. Yes I would say that I have this feeling about more than one aspect of my life
