Insight. Thought. Compassion. These are the three qualities that will triumphantly drive any person through the thicket that is life. It’s taken me 22 years 4 months and 12 days to realize this. Without insight, how could anyone see clearly? Without thought, how could one begin to conceive an idea? Without compassion, how could you understand your neighbor? These are the questions that have taken me all this time to formulate. These are my questions; they are your questions. These are the questions that many have asked or will ask themselves depending on when their time to grow up arrives.
My time came early this morning, hence this 7 A.M. post (eastern time). What exactly does this all mean? I have no idea. I mean I am after all only 22 years old, but I can rest assure because although I don’t know the exact meaning of this overnight revelation, I do know that it holds some type of meaning.
I’ve come to realize that I won’t understand everything that occurs in my life and perhaps it’s meant to be that way. I’ll understand what I can and appreciate what I can not. I will not dwell. I will continue to be myself and find a way to live for myself while living for others. Some people will feed you nonsense about how you should live only for yourself and not for others because it gets you farther. This is one of the biggest misconceptions of our modern world. Living for another is one of the important aspects of living, and having someone to live for makes life all the more fruitful!
I live for myself. I live for my family. I live for my friends. I live for my blog readers. I live for the world. I live because if I didn’t live, the world would be different in some way, shape, or form no matter how grand or minuscule.
I apply this concept to everything I’ve done and do in my life and I will not fall off this course. I hope you can all learn something from my rambling, lol, and follow my path or create your own. Just find something extrinsic to live for in addition to living for yourself and you’ll see that life is truly an amazing thing!
…and no, I’m not suicidal, lmao. I’m just an overly confident individual trying to understand the complexities of being humble.
