Sometimes I don’t feel like I’m living my life, just surviving it and I feel like I’m wasting my youth away. 5/7 days in my week are me just focusing on school and trying to finish all of my homework and study for my tests. Oh, but it doesn’t end there because nearly half of my weekend is taken up by school as well. Don’t get me wrong, I love learning and the reading about new things but there are days when I want to sit outside and relax in the sun and not think about things like grades and school anymore.
I feel like we, as humans, are often hung over on things that happened in the past. We focus way, way too much on something that we are unable to change, but we try anyway. I for one am guilty of this on more than one occasion. I just keep on worrying and overthinking about things that are completely out of my control.
Sometimes, happiness may seem difficult to achieve. You might think that you need that nice new car or that gorgeous little black dress that you saw while on an impromptu shopping spree and didn’t have enough money to get. Maybe its that cute boy that sits behind you in class or even that dog you saw at the pet store. Although these things may bring some happiness, it is most often temporary and will soon fade. You will get bored of these materialistic things and seek for something much more fulfilling.
I feel like human beings have a deep-rooted need or want to impress others. Whether it be with their appearance, money, clothes, car, occupation, social status… For whatever reason, we often put the opinion of others over our thoughts, over our feelings. Maybe because we think others’ approval equates to our happiness. Or maybe its just because we want to be liked and loved by others.
Don’t cross oceans for people who wouldn’t cross a puddle for you. (+)
