Leveling Up Gets Lonely, Do It Anyway

Hi Travelers!

It’s Giselle from Giselle Avenue – inspiring you to find your voice and be heard.

Today, I want to touch on something that I think we all struggle with from time to time – loneliness while leveling up in life!

Many of us journey through life trying to discover what our true calling is.

Let me tell you, it’s not always an easy road.

Honestly, MOST people do the complete opposite.

They take the easy road. They follow the path laid out for them. They avoid challenges at all costs. And they always play it safe.

Naturally, we are constantly growing and changing. From childhood to adolescence, from adolescence to adulthood, and from adulthood to old age, we are continually leveling up in life. But as we level up, the journey can get lonely.

Why does leveling up in life seem to come with a side of loneliness? There are a few different reasons:

  1. Not Everyone Understands

When we level up, we often leave people behind. Our priorities shift, our values change, and our circle of friends may become smaller. The people we were once close to may not understand our new perspective or share our goals. This can make it challenging to find common ground and maintain relationships.

  1. The Pressure to Keep Climbing

When we reach a new level of success or achievement, we often feel pressure to keep climbing. We set higher expectations for ourselves, and we may feel like we don’t have time for leisure or social activities. As a result, we may feel that our success is isolating us from others.

  1. Fear of Being Judged

As we level up, we often become more visible in our communities and social groups. We may feel like everyone is watching us, waiting for us to fail or make mistakes. This fear of judgment can cause us to withdraw from relationships and avoid taking risks.

  1. Loss of Connection

Finally, as we level up, we may begin to lose touch with our roots. We may move to a new city, leave behind our old hobbies, or distance ourselves from our family and childhood friends. While this can be a necessary step in personal growth and development, it can also be isolating and lonely.

So, what can we do to combat the loneliness that comes with leveling up? Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Surround Yourself with Supportive People

Find people who support your goals and share your passions. Having a supportive network can make all the difference when it comes to dealing with the isolation and pressure of leveling up.

  1. Take Time for Yourself

It’s essential to take breaks, evaluate your journey, and celebrate your achievements. Schedule downtime into your calendar and allow yourself the time and space to recharge.

  1. Stay Grounded and Humble

Remember where you came from and stay grounded in your values. No matter how successful you become, always be kind, humble, and respectful to others.

  1. Explore New Hobbies, As You Enter New Levels

Try new things, indulge in different hobbies, learn new skills, and most importantly, be open to new experiences.

Whether it’s photography, cooking, writing, or painting that lights your fire, don’t be afraid to pursue what sets your soul on fire. Follow your heart and give it your all. I guarantee you’ll be amazed at what you’re capable of achieving.

While leveling up in life may come with its challenges, DO IT ANYWAY!

You can take steps to combat loneliness and isolation. Remember to stay connected to your values, surround yourself with supportive people, take breaks when necessary, and seek professional help when needed. With these tools in your toolbox, you can continue to grow, evolve, and reach new levels of success while maintaining strong connections with others.

Remember, life is too short to stay the same! We are here to evolve.

Level up, and continue to become the best version of yourself!
