Life is so hard. Sometimes, life makes so hard to breath and wake up in the morning. We wish that life will be easier to deal with perfect boyfriend, nice friends, and family. We want the perfect life to be live on. However, reality is harder than dream, but it is still worth to lived.
For me, my “adult” things started after I left college. Right after high school, I went to university that was 5 minutes away from my house.
So, here I am.
I began this year working at national company. I’m happy finally I got a job. Yes, I am officially employed. Ummm…little overwhelming, but I managed and love it so far.
Something that inevitably happens at this stage is a self-evaluation of where your life currently stands. I don’t know where I’m going, and I have no freaking clue what I want in life whatsoever. My general lack of direction continues to contribute to this unhappiness which is hard to unravel and deal with. Sometimes I feel like I am treading water, and the longer I go on just trying to figure it out the more exhausted and unhappy I am.
It seems that everyone around me is uploading photos or status on social media about their achievements. And I’m just sitting here trying to figure out if my greatest achievements this year was … mmmm….NOTHING.
Sometimes it is so easy to be discouraged when we compare our lives to others. Mass media (social media, in particular) has drastically changed our attitudes and perceptions towards ourselves, our relationships, and our overall quality of life. I think when it comes to the social media world, we try our very best to appear like we “have it together” and lead these meaningful lives. We all want to scroll through our timeline/history and see the changes, the developments we have made.
If you are reading this, you are beautiful beyond measure. You have so many talents hidden within you—talents that you may not even be able to see. And whether you wish to believe it or not, they may just be the talents the world really needs. The world is so fragile, broken—and you may be too. But please know that you matter, that a bright future is possible, that life is always forgivable, and that happiness is always available.
We spend all our lives searching for a light to guide us. We look up, down, around—where is it? We ask, and ask, and ask—forgetting that there’s a light waiting to be acknowledged within us—waiting for an opportunity to emit its radiance.
So we ask, where is the light?
It is inside you, me.
Let it burn.
