Peace

For example, when I'm job searching or working, it can be repetitive. I start to feel lost and lonely (even when people talk to me). It starts to feel pointless too...my mind goes to a dark, miserable place (but not always just from time to time).

Sorry, not sure if it's in the correct category.

I guess we could link this with the Qur'an. What would be some Quranic advice for feeling lost in life?

Its psychological feelings..

population of world is increasing resources are limited to few people at this age you can experience a lot more people who think/feel same like you..

things happened in time/space in such a way that none can control over it. soon you will discover it,
average person understand it after 50s .. but now a days people are computerised hence they are  discovering things quickly..  :laugh:

some issues/factors what make human mind feel lonely..

1 JOB/work/money
2 health/illness/disease
3 failure in relationship/family
4 getting late in achieving results/targets.


REASONS

the main reason is when we compare our time-span with another person/people time-span

POSSIBLE cures..

reduce the desire of happiness or change the perception of happiness..


BECAUSE

someone else painted/directed/created  all of it without our wish/control.. one day perhaps that  someone unlock the next level in which u start learning some of the mysteries of the information what we are experiencing..

good logic

If we search for our true conviction, by recognising that we are accountable to the CREATOR-If one believes in a Creator-, then try the following:

1- Put GOD 24/7 in our mind. This will change our attitude and priorities.
2- Being under the watchful eye of GOD ,we start to be conscious of our life , conduct and  behaviour.
3- We start by "taking our accountability seriously" , Aware to do to others no harm, to respect and value everything. Do our duty whatever it entails.
4- Fulfil our contracts. If we are paid for a job, do that job to the best of our ability or undo the contract.
5-Trust in GOD.Talk/complain, ask...GOD like you would a very best friend. We need support in this life and GOD is the best supporter.
6-Enjoy what you do or change the way you live. GOD will help eventually regardless of our fear.
No need to feel lost or feel any loss. with GOD as our best friend.
GOD bless.
Peace.

Peace,

Absolutely, but I think that comes with the territory of receiving God's grace upon the select few who have been given the truth. It is hard to find any passion or desire in life, speaking for myself, when the only thing that interest me is God's word. Everything else seems pointless. On the bright side though, I use the time I have left by exercising the best of my abilities to carry out God's commands before that Day comes. Use what you are experiencing, sadness/depression/loneliness as an opportunity to please God, by acknowledging that all this that is happening is because of God's will, and embrace it through patience, perseverance, and faith. Everything you are feeling is not in vain, it is for a specific purpose for His glory. Remember, what you are feeling is no accident :)

57:22
Not strikes any disaster in the earth and not in yourselves, but in a Register before that We bring it into existence. Indeed, that for Allah (is) easy.

57:23
So that you may not grieve over what has escaped you, and (do) not exult at what He has given you. And Allah (does) not love every self-deluded boaster

9:51
Say, "Never will befall us except what Allah has decreed for us, He (is) our Protector." And on Allah [so] let the believers put (their) trust.


Create a Godly mission for yourself to pursue everyday for His sake. Maybe create 1 year, 5 year, and 10 year goals which will help establish a blueprint to look forward to. I believe this can give any person of faith to have more purpose in life that will require you to strive in this world, not in vain, but for God's glory. Hope this helps. Peace.

Salam, search for opportunities to do charity or acts of kindness. Sometimes even talking to another person is an act of charity. My coworker was in severe depression over the end of his relationship and just talking to us every morning helped him come out of it. In everything we do is some blessings from Allah so take advantage and grab at those opportunities. If we feel like society is uncontrollably damaged (which it is) and we try to break away from it we miss those chances to make ourselves better.
