➤ Persistent feelings of discontent: Continuous feelings of dissatisfaction or a sense of emptiness despite external achievements.
➤ Lack of Motivation: Difficulty finding motivation in daily activities or work can suggest a disconnect from a sense of purpose.
➤ Increased Stress and Anxiety: Overwhelming stress or heightened anxiety without a clear cause could be linked to a lack of purpose or direction.
➤ Feelings of Isolation: A sense of disconnection or loneliness, even in the presence of others, might signal a need for deeper connections or a shared purpose.
