I don't know how to listen to myself anymore. That small voice inside, my intuition, the part of me that tells me my true desires and what I value and require from life has been stifled by the pragmatic, realist, rational voice that tells me that I need to do the "right", "practical" thing, and leave my wild eyed, optimistic, overly romanticized notions behind.
You know, grow up.
Even if I got the guts to follow my heart, the problem is, I don't know what I want anymore from career, from relationships, from hobbies, etc. I don't know what would fulfill me - I feel like I lost myself somewhere, and its making really. unhappy. Painfully unhappy. I get the feeling that a lot of people feel this way.
So apart from trying to meditate, or reading and re-reading The Little Prince and The Alchemist, what do I do to get back in touch with myself?
