Have you ever felt as though you were living the wrong life?
I have a good life by most measures. I have made significant progress toward professional and personal goals, have everything I need and much of what I want, and have few regrets. For years now, however, there has been this undercurrent of feeling that I am living the wrong life, almost like those sci/fi stories in which someone lands in a parallel universe where their life turned out quite differently. I look back and wonder, at what point did I make the "wrong" turn away from that parallel existence? Which is the life I was "meant" to lead? My real life is the better life, so why do I feel so strongly called by the alternative, as if I am missing something more important than all I actually have? Has anyone else experienced something like this?
for starts, you should get more literal about wrong turns in your life, not so broad. because this way, keeping it abstract, you wont make real life changes if you dont define problem more precisely.
what you described almost sounds like my daily horoscope , no offense..... just pointing out that sometimes answers are right in front of our nose while we keep digging in theories
