Billie Eilish's What Was I Made For? Unfulfilled Desires

Billie Eilish’s What Was I Made For? Peaks Into Unfulfilled Desires

Have you heard the latest Academy Award (Oscars) winning track, “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish? Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on this one! The song manages to find its compass amidst unfulfilled desires right from the start: “I used to float, now I just fall down / I used to know, but I’m not sure now…”

Billie Eilish O’Connell & Finneas Baird O’Connell’s captivating lyrics, “What Was I Made For?”, beautifully capture the essence of human longing and the emptiness that arises from unmet aspirations.

Through their introspective lyrics, they skillfully portray the feeling of being lost and uncertain about one’s purpose in life. This heartfelt song resonates with many of us, as we can all relate to the experience of feeling disconnected from our true path.

What Was I Made For? A Song That Captures the Modern Quandary

In today’s society, we are constantly exposed to messages and images promoting an idealized version of life. Whether it’s through social media or other forms of media, we are bombarded with carefully crafted depictions of success, happiness, and perfection.

This can make it difficult to maintain a sense of perspective and can lead to feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt. The song in question speaks to this experience, acknowledging the pressure we all feel to measure up to an impossible standard.

This relentless pursuit of external validation, as Billie Eilish sings, can leave us feeling like “just something you paid for” – inauthentic and out of touch with our genuine desires.

Understanding Unfulfilled Desires

Unfulfilled desires are aspirations or wishes that remain unrealized. They can range from personal goals we haven’t achieved to a yearning for a different life path. These unfulfilled desires can stem from various factors:

  • Societal expectations
  • Societal pressures and the constant bombardment of idealized lifestyles through social media can create unrealistic expectations, leading to feelings of inadequacy and a sense of falling short.

  • Unidentified passions
  • Sometimes, a lack of self-awareness regarding our true passions and aspirations can leave us feeling directionless and unfulfilled.

  • Fear of failure
  • The fear of stepping outside our comfort zone and potentially failing can prevent us from pursuing our desires.

3 Major Impacts of Unfulfilled Desires

When left unaddressed, unfulfilled desires can significantly impact our well-being:

1. Reduced life satisfaction

The constant presence of unfulfilled desires can lead to a pervasive sense of dissatisfaction and a feeling of incompleteness in life.

2. Low self-esteem

The perceived inability to achieve our desires can chip away at our self-confidence and self-worth.

3. Anxiety and depression

The emotional burden of unfulfilled desires can manifest as anxiety, negativity, and even depression.

How Unfulfilled Desires Can Manifest?

  • Feeling stuck in a dead-end job
  • This can lead to a lack of motivation, decreased productivity, and a general sense of purposelessness.

  • Strained relationships
  • Unfulfilled desires can lead to feelings of resentment and dissatisfaction within relationships.

  • Apathy and lack of direction
  • The absence of a clear goal or purpose can result in feelings of listlessness and a sense of drifting through life.

Breaking Free from the Cycle

The song in question is a poignant reflection on the complexities of human emotion. It conveys a sense of uncertainty, but also includes a ray of hope that suggests that the narrator is willing to try to overcome their feelings of confusion.

The line from What Was I Made For, ” I don’t know how to feel, But I wanna try, Someday I might, Someday I might,” showcases the universal human desire to grow and evolve, and the possibility of finding happiness again. Despite the challenges of navigating complex emotions, the song encourages listeners to assume the potential for growth and to believe in the possibility of a brighter future.

Taking Action Towards Fulfillment

Here are some steps you can take to break free from the cycle of unfulfilled desires and venture on a path of greater purpose:

  • Adopt self-reflection
  • Engage in honest introspection to identify your core values, passions, and true aspirations. Journaling or personality assessments can be valuable tools in this process.

  • Set realistic goals
  • Don’t be overwhelmed by the enormity of your desires. Break them down into smaller, achievable milestones to maintain motivation and track your progress.

  • Seek professional guidance
  • A qualified life coach can provide valuable support and guidance in navigating the path towards fulfilling your desires.

We changed their lives and here they send us reasons to smile !
Priceless words of honour.

I have known Dr Chandni for only 6 months. Yet today I consider her part of my family and my being. When I met her, I was exhausted with life and with myself. Not only did her session uplift & transform my physical body but I was grounded like I havent been in 8 years. Highly knowledgeable, able to answer your deepest questions, full of light and exuberance, I havent seen any energy healing so significant and long lasting. Im privileged to receive wellness from her and I know that Im never alone. My association with her is for life and her specialness is above the heavens for me.

I was part of the session with Dr. Chandni Tugnait and so many friends asked me about my experience. The following analogy reflects some parts of the experience -The best of Buddhas disciple gave their quantifiable findings but when it came to Andanda, his closest one, he had tears in his eyes and responded in a single sentence – “I don’t know”.Buddha responded emotively, you have me in you. One has to experience it to believe in the healing process in totality.
Thanks a lot for your contribution Chandni

More power to her, she is changing the life of many people with her holistic healing techniques and helping in removing limiting beliefs of people and unleashing the power within them to get healthy and successful life.

At times i wonder where does she keep it all. Such compassion – non judgmental, ever accessible, invaluable. It’s got to be a fountain within her that flows incessantly for the wary soul. No matter what your wound is, the magical waters of this fountain can cure all. And it was magic that got me to this fountain. For I had neither met her nor known her, at-least not in this lifetime! The first time i spoke to her, her compassion cut through my dense energy.

It was indeed a great honor for me to be trained by Ms. Chandni on my first visit to India. Not only did she teach us techniques on improving our proficiency in the English Language but also helped us to be able to communicate effectively with people from different cultures. The sessions with Ms. Chandni are always fun & informative. Even after hours of training with her, there is no sign of tiredness or lethargy. I extend my gratitude to you for teaching us how to be BETTER THAN THE BEST!!

Robbi Adhilni

Every teacher educates but only a few enlighten and Chandni ma’am is one of them. Besides having outstanding teaching methods, she is also very skilful and enthusiastic. And the best part is she never settles for what she and her students have accomplished. I owe a lot to her in terms of motivation, enlightenment and most importantly for making me a good human being. Her words of motivation “YOU ARE BETTER THAN THE BEST” always are a major source of ENCOURAGEMENT..

Ms. Chandni is a fine young lady who simply touched my heart during my visit to India. Although she is my daughter’s age but the ease with which she handled our group of 40 odd people from different countries and different cultures, left me spellbound. English was never a problem for me but this young girl, who I proudly call my teacher, taught me some very interesting things. I wish you the best of luck in everything that you do. Smile as often as you can. May the Lord bless you!

I’m really glad I attended the Serenity Surrender Basic Workshop with Chandni Ma’am. I’ll be indebted to you all my life for showing me the path of self empowerment. I had put myself in the gentle and capable hands of my guide and mentor ‘Chandni Tugnait Sharma’ and found that my opinion of myself, and my beliefs in the cycles of karma changed forever. The sessions and workshops have helped me develop my full potential, unlock hidden talents, and create more compassion and love for myself and others. Love You Ma’am.

I shall be eternally grateful to my sister-in-law for helping me uncover the fantastic laws of Universe and exposing me to the world of great mysticity and grandeur. Nothing seems impossible for me now. I get all that I desire and much more. One workshop changed so much for me. I, now, truly believe that nothing is unachievable in this abundant Universe.
