It is impossible to go through life not feeling anxious about the path that you are heading down. It is inevitable to feel jealous of the lives of other people. But here’s the thing — it is always possible to choose to trust your path even when it feels uncertain. And even when you are trying to pursue something with your life, or you are still looking for answers, it is a true test of your faith and courage to keep moving forward despite the fear.
In any pursuit, life will always challenge you if how much you want something to happen in your life.
It is important that you stop validating your life based on the lives of others. It is important that you constantly remind yourself that your life has its own journey to head along. And yes, it is important that you understand this concept that even when things don’t happen according to what you want, you are still going to learn from the journey, and you will always find what you truly need.
Sometimes when you pursue something, it is not actually the thing that is supposed to happen for you — because life will always bring you to the things that you deserve. So even when you don’t know where you are going yet, remember that you are not lost; you are in the process.
You have to live now even without you knowing where you are heading.
But I have learned that on your way to the place you want to go, it is critical that you learn how to find joy and strength right where you are now. Because the truth is, life is uncertain and right now is all you have. So it is important that you find the courage to choose where you want to go, who you want to become, and to enjoy the side trips of life a lot.
Your life’s journey has its own ups and downs. And you have to be there in every single turn of it. You have to learn to see yourself struggling because through that you will realize that real triumph is not glamorous at all — it is messy.
Remember that it is normal to feel jealous, anxious, and uncertain about your own path.
It is not a curse to see that others are doing great with their chosen paths. Actually, it is a blessing because you have now the ability to ask yourself if that is the kind of life you truly want for yourself. It is a way for you to enlighten yourself to know the things that truly matter to you and the things that don’t.
