Ever wake up and feel like the alarm stole your joy? No reason to wake up in the morning? This is my version of my true story. See, the thing is you get to a point where you ask yourself, is this the life I see myself living for the rest of my life? It is one thing to fool everyone to think you are living your best life, it is another to convince your heart that. A lot of us learn to live in our mediocre lives, because we feel like there is nothing we can do about it. I had reached the level of depression where I knew there is more to me, where I knew there is a lot that I could be doing, but I put myself in a system that has killed many dreams.
Someone has prescribed the way to life for everyone in the whole world, and this system has proven to kill more dreams than it actually makes people to dream. I spent 3 years of my life thinking I am not enough, thinking I am stupid, thinking I didn’t have any dreams in me, because of a system that graded 49% a failure. I remember thinking to myself, why me? It’s even harder when you look at your friends and they seem to understand the concept, they are getting good grades.
You remember the day when you asked yourself if this is all there is to life? Yes, you were right, there is more life. Life is what we make out of it. Most of us live life always wondering what’s beyond the bridge, scared to cross the bridge. The voice inside of us wants to see what’s on the other side of the bridge, but fear holds us back. You wake up in the morning not wanting to face the day, because you are not living beyond who you are. Ever take life as a full time job? This is a waste of your life! I was there, I know the pain of looking at the time in the morning and feeling like I don’t want to wake up.
I know the pain of being stuck on a certain day of my life- reliving the same day over and over everyday and calling that life. I know the pain of being anxious about the future and wondering, what is next in life. You see, we need to realize our full potential as human beings. We have to a lot to achieve, but only if we let go of the comfort zone. My challenge to you is: reflect. Which life would make you say ‘I truly lived’?
