10 Inspirational Quotes For When You're Beginning To Question EVERYTHING

How did we end up here?

There will come a time in your life (if it hasn’t happened already) when all you do is question your choices.

You constantly ask yourself if you’ve made the right choices about school, your partner, moving to a new city, and everything else you’ve gone through up until this point.

It can be scary feeling this way, especially if you don’t know how to how or where to find your confidence again.

And while it does help to have a strong support system helping you, ultimately, you have to be the one to find yourself again; because no one else is in charge of your future, you have to make the decisions that are best for you.

It might be hard at first, especially if these decisions mean making drastic changes, but if it feels right and gives you a sense of calm during all this stress, then it means you’ve made the right choice.

Questioning everything usually comes at a time when you feel stuck; when it feels like your life is going nowhere, your relationships have stagnated, and nothing excites you anymore.

Of course, there may be underlying causes of these feelings like depression (which shouldn't be ignored), but whatever the reason is, all you want is to find your confidence and enjoy life again.

Finding yourself – whether that means at work, in your relationship, or just personally – starts with YOU.

Getting into the habit of telling yourself that you are worth it, that you deserve everything that life can offer you, and that you are capable of anything is a great first step.

These words of motivation can do more for you than you think, so don’t knock it until you try it.

To help you get started, keep reading below for some of the best motivational quotes to help you get back to being the person you want to be and to give you some more clarity of mind if you question everything again in the future.
