It’s funny how life can quickly take a sudden turn and make it seem so easy to utterly complicated. You try so hard to understand why but at the end of the day trying to explain the “why” part is what makes it frustrating. Well you see, we all have goals and dreams of what we want to accomplish in a certain period of time but yet we believe that life is all about doing something or else we will be nothing. Then again, this is just me judging from everyone’s perspectives of LIFE.
Our generation is so easily influenced by one another. Now don’t sit there saying “well, not me. I’m different”. But come on, really? You think so. ARE YOU REALLY DIFFERENT? Have you ever sat down and thought to yourself what really makes you different? Is it your sense of style that you probably saw in a magazine, or perhaps the course your studying that someone else already studied and inspired you to do the exact same thing. Truth of the matter is, someone has already said or done everything you’ve already experienced in life. WEIRD RIGHT?
Let me start of by saying that my life is not always as simple or fun as I make if seem. Yes, you’ve seen the pictures on Instagram and Facebook but that’s because I allow you to see the good parts and never the dull or sad parts of it. Let me just say that my life changed completely since I last graduated from high school. I dealt with being indecisive to emotionally drained. I tried keeping up with everyone else that I lost track of myself. I suddenly found myself unsure of what to do in life and realized that not everything I’d thought I’d be would come in that certain timeline I had set in mind.
I delt with the most craziest moments in silence because that’s the best way I believed that I could. I must admit that I had cried a couple of times. In my mind, crying was my way of shedding of baggages. SO I CRIED! But I also prayed. Praying gave me a sense of new life and restoration.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that everyone experiences life’s uncontrollable ups or downs in the same manner but that doesn’t mean that they don’t experience it all. I’ve always said that we all try so hard to be different but at the end of the day end up being alike. It’s not because we are all trying but its because we all aim to be distinct but yet I wonder if the term “distinct” is so different from consistency.
LIFE IS A ROLLER COASTER. ACCEPT IT! (Well……..so I’ve told myself)
So think for a second, JUST THINK. How would you define the term LIFE? What are your perspectives on life?
