Thought: not knowing what you want, is it better than knowing while aware you can’t get it?
In my opinion (from current experience), it is NOT. Whatever the reason, nothing can stand in your way of achieving something if you put your mind to it. Whether it is financial problems or family pressure, it comes down to how much you’re willing to sacrifice to get what you want. Of course, without sacrificing yourself and your beliefs (when there’s a will, there’s a way. And when that way is unethical, there is always another way if you look harder). There is always a choice. The point is, you do have a goal, a direction and know what you’re working (living) towards.
NOT KNOWING what you want, you do not have a say in that. You are heading in no particular direction, roaming and in pursuit of something murky that you don’t even know yet. Yes, it is an adventure but over time (not getting any younger with each passing second)… does it not get frustrating to not know what is next or even truly accomplish something? All you can do is keep trying to figure it out… or live through life like you’re missing one of your five senses… that incomplete feeling of not living to your fullest potential, not striving towards what you’re meant to fulfill – the purpose of your existence… It crumbles one self-esteem when you feel lost and uncertain of your own self.
“As through your window I stared out, And saw someday we’ll be too old.”
It is like I’m sleepdriving through life, pondering on my life and choices at the night, only to go through the days numb and aimlessly… well aware I am wasting my youth away…
So, are you one of the lucky people happily doing what you’re passionate about every day? Or have you chosen to be ignorant to your wants by just getting by each day to attain your human needs? If not, are you still figuring out your passion? Or have you just cower and/or given up in fear?
Is there such a thing – blissful ignorance? Comment and share your thoughts and experiences!
*P/S: Yes! I’ve decided upon Me Finding I. I think it still makes some sense even if you get the entire meaning to it, it still ultimately implies finding oneself, yes?
