I don’t know what Im doing with my life. I haven’t got any set plans, there’s barely stability with it right now that I couldn’t generally answer the question “what are you doing with your life?”
It’s a question that terrifies me a lot recently. It really burdens my mind and bothers me, but I realised it’s something that a lot of people feel and deal with. A lot of people struggle to figure out what their purpose is, it’s a lot of pressure on them to know what they are doing with their life’s but they just haven’t got a clue. Yet no one really talks about it and most people decides to deal with it internally and just freak out inside while putting on a face for everybody else.
I realised that it’s actually Ok to feel this way and that its a stage majority of people goes through. You’re constantly told what to do from birth being young and then in school, your trained to learn, do the right thing and pass your exams in order to get to the next step, thinking that adults was so sensible, have life figured out and have all the answers. But then you become an adults and realise that its not the case.
Although its ok to not have everything figured out, what’s not OK is sitting on that feeling and doing nothing about it. The best thing you can do is become extremely busy. Be as busy as you can possibly be, just do, keep yourself active because once you stop and become sluggish you’re going to start feeling sorry for yourself and just go into a downwards spiral feeling low and negative that does nothing good for you.
Now being ‘busy’ can mean so many different things. I look at my friends and family and some of them went travelling, working in the sector they graduated in, continued education to go into masters, or even just have a part time job while doing something creative such as makeup artist, hairstylist, personal trainer, YouTube or blog etc. So there are many options don’t feel like you have to take just one.
I’m on the path way of trying everything and anything to figure out what’s for me.
What do you enjoy doing in you’re spare time and what would you like to gain skills in?
