It is not surprising that you are wondering at this time what you actually want in life. Because you have more time to think about this, you check whether your life as it is now suits you. Now that you have said goodbye to your old life, the question is whether you want to go back to how it was and if not, what do you want? Some people know exactly, for others it is more difficult. These questions can help you understand what you want to do in life.
1. Who are you jealous of?
Jealousy is often associated with something negative, but it can be very insightful if you handle it well. You often get jealous when someone else has something you don't have. For example, your colleague who earns more money, a friend who is her own boss or a girlfriend who always makes nice long journeys.
2. Who are your role models?
Are there certain people who inspire you a lot, such as a pop star, actress, comedienne, YouTuber or perhaps your own father or mother? Write at least three and find out why they are your role model and what they have in common. Which character traits do you recognize?
3. What are your unique character traits?
Sometimes it is difficult to ask yourself this question. Then compare yourself with friends and family. What character trait do you have that they don't have? You can of course also ask someone who knows you well what they think is unique about your character.
4. What were your favorite subjects at school?
As a child you did what you wanted, pure and natural. What did you like and what were you good at?
5. If you were allowed to study for free and get paid, which study would you choose?
Few people take a new path at a later age and start studying again. Simply because they are used to a salary and a certain lifestyle. Yet it is never too late to learn something new.
