Half of our lives have been nothing but charades. I think deep, so deep, and I can’t help but understand how we are unfortunately surviving life instead of living it. I believe most of us live in the most vulnerable and depressing days of our lives. Research actually shows that people between the ages of 20 and 30 feel this way. The feeling of struggle with literally everything never leaves and I cannot help but ask, how can we fix ourselves? Have you ever woken up in the morning and you feel like, “I am a total failure”, “Nothing good can happen to me”, “What if the world would be a better place without me”? This is the kind of feeling I’m talking about. Most of the time, we have trouble being happy about anything. It was almost like we would be punished for feeling the slightest of joy.
All of the feelings of brokenness and unworthiness were all in my head. I woke up every day finding ways of surviving life instead of living it. I am a realist, and even though many of you might find it quite hard to admit it, you wake up the everyday day of your life surviving instead of living the good beautiful life you have been offered. The thing that bothers me the most is how you may never have the opportunity to relive your experiences. For this reason, we are about to break that shitty cycle of pity bullshit and live our lives being happy and joyful always instead of surviving each day.
Finding Your Purpose
More than once I have asked myself this question. What am I really here for? I believe that finding your purpose as an individual is the most challenging task in life. In a world where many things seem displaced, how can anyone find their real purpose to make them productive? While I struggle to place my fingers on the reason why I get to live each day, I believe it would be wise to be practical about everything and find how to stop the cycle of life surviving by living my purpose.
Trusting Your Instincts
One thing I never dare to relinquish in my thoughts is the fact that the truth is always inside me. Not once or twice, we all have come to crossroads in life and it is in those moments that we find direction from the inside. Whatever you do, there is always that feeling inside you that tells you whether to keep on or not. I suggest that you trust that instinct. It is that part of you that can show you the real purpose of your life.
Listening To People
Whether we like it or not, we live in very interactive societies. Making it a point to listen to what people have got to say to you or about you helps you to pick up very helpful cues of your life’s purpose. Seeing yourself in other people’s eyes helps to shape your life entirely and it gives you the rare opportunity to find yourself. In these very teachable moments, you would be relieved of the burden of struggling to live your life.
The Right Company
If you are surviving life instead of living it, it has probably got everything to do with the kind of people you are surrounded by. Don’t get me wrong, you do not have to hate anybody. Only, you have to find people who will help you live a good life instead of surviving it. It is very unfortunate how sometimes, the company that causes you pain is family, however, it is definitely possible to break free from anything. Let’s get real. People who do not give you the necessary attention you need, support you with their resources, especially money, and give you a reason to be better in life have to be replaced. This is the only way you can find your purpose to live a good life instead of surviving it.
Exploring Your Interest
The best part of life is doing exactly what you want to do especially when it is ethically right. Being authentic with the things you want to do gives you the opportunity to harness a certain type of power that is rare to come by. Learn how to go forward with your interests. Explore potential resources and give yourself a chance to find what you love to do. As people live in the shadows of their real dreams and aspirations. It would be naturally priceless to be able to enjoy what you truly want to do in other to upgrade from surviving to a more comfortable living situation.
Using The Compass
Now that we have established how we can live life instead of surviving it. We obviously have loads of work to do. We cannot be the same people anymore which literally means that we have no excuse to wake up every day feeling the way to used to feel. As I part ways with you ta day. I wish to let out to you something to fail to comprehend about your own self -“You Do Matter!”
