Life has been kind of uneventful and emotional lately, I was in this turmoil about my plans after graduation, where I’d be and if I’ll be able to fulfill my dreams. I’ve had these moments where I’d just cry and leave my questions hanging.
But I guess it’s just a crisis people my age are usually going through. But that’s life, I learned that when I feel like the road that I’m travelling on is leading me to a dead end, I’d think of other roads travel on and no matter how much time it will cost me, I know I’d get to where I want to be.
1. Do not overthink - that I guess is one of the reasons why it is harder for us to reach our goals. It’s either we don’t think about the simple ways out of our problems or we tend to think of more problems inside the problems. It’s slowing down your pace until you get tired.
2. Others’ opinions matter but sometimes you just don’t have to give a damn. - I’ve heard so many people tell me: "Walang kang kikitain sa teatro"/"Mag-aaral ka sa New York? Mahal don. Magtabaho ka na lang dito." etc. Please, I know that I’d have to work my ass to study again, it’s going to be tough but I don’t let those comments get in my way. You still have to respect their opinion because hey, it’s the ugly reality but it feels better to not give a shit about those.
3. Things always happen for a reason - life isn’t always served in a silver platter and if the odds are not really on your favor it’s either you have to work harder or it’s just not for you. Everything has a reason, you just have to accept it and think that better opportunities are waiting for you.
4. Just be grateful and there’s always a silver lining at the end. - I don’t think I have to explain this. It’s the most important thing to do.
I just have to vent this out. It’s always great to share things to you guys.
