Avoiding our lack of purpose
Escapism keeps us from finding it
Feeling a lack of purpose and direction is an uncomfortable feeling. It’s so uncomfortable that to avoid it, we distract ourselves with material pursuits, entertainment, substances, or major life changes just for the sake of changing something.
Whatever keeps us distracted. Whatever helps us forget that we’re lost.
But we never forget. The uncertainty is always there, tucked away under our updated wishlist and Netflix marathon, but never completely silenced.
We need to face it. We need to sit with the discomfort. It’s the only way to understand.
