How to find yourself again after losing everything

Sep 30, 2023

Life often takes us on unexpected journeys, some of which lead us down a path of loss, heartbreak, and personal transformation. In this blog post, we'll explore the profound process of losing everything to find yourself again that Anna Kloots shares in this week's Zero Wasted Days Podcast Episode. We'll delve into the idea of sacrificing your dreams for your partner, losing your sense of identity when you hit rock bottom, and how to rediscover your self-worth, and values, so that you can find yourself again and pave the way for a brighter future.

Like Anna, many of us have been in situations where we've put our own dreams and aspirations on hold or even set them aside entirely for the sake of a relationship. While compromise is an essential element of any healthy relationship, it's crucial to strike a balance between shared goals and personal ambitions, otherwise you lose yourself. 

Sometimes, life has a way of forcing us to let go of everything we hold dear. Whether it's a relationship, a job, or other significant life changes, and if you’ve sacrificed your dreams during that time, it can lead to a loss of identity and fulfilment. But hitting rock bottom can also serve as a turning point.

Losing everything is a painful process, but it can also be the foundation upon which we rebuild our lives in alignment with our true selves. It's in these challenging times that we grow the most. 

The first step to finding yourself again is to reconnect with your values. These will provide a sense of purpose and direction, when you feel lost and defeated. Your values are the compass that can lead you back to your true self. 

As you rebuild your life and work towards rediscovering yourself, authenticity and integrity become your guiding principles. Authenticity means being true to yourself, embracing your unique qualities, and expressing them honestly. Integrity involves living in alignment with your values and principles, even when faced with difficult choices. 

The second step is to build a supportive community around yourself who appreciate and value you. Surrounding yourself with people that share the same values as you will help you rediscover true self and will help ignite that confidence within that will allow you to go after every biggest dream you’ve ever had and put on hold.

Anna’s story is a testament that losing everything can be the hardest experience, but at the same time it can also be exactly what you need. Hitting rock bottom often becomes the catalyst for personal growth and self-discovery and provides an opportunity to rebuild your life in a way that aligns with your true self.
