Comment 15 by Spiritual Atheist

To a large extent I battled with finding myself, and my role. It took me a while to unlearn words like purpose, destiny, and meaning applied in the sense of externally imposed by a Creator. But as time got on, I became happier. I found more meaning and truth, but simultaneously also became more lost.

My advice is, embrace being lost for a while. It is okay. It is a terribly wonderful feeling, or perhaps wonderfully terrible feeling.

I wonder if others have experienced the same........but most of my battle with nihilism and lostness occured while I was still nominally a believer.
