The life we all deserve

The life we all deserve

Work is a major part of everyones lives, so ideally we should all love our jobs, but more often then not this is not the case. Mostly we choose a job that pays more or is closer to home or the one with the best schedule, we rarely get to do the things we enjoy. It would be better for everyone if people could easily choose to do the things they always dreamt about. The question is: is this utopia where everyone finds their place possible?

There definitely are people who have their dream jobs. Actors, musicians, youtubers, writers, people who have their own little businesses. To my understanding they all have one thing in common, they started very young, some in their teen years, others even younger. But they weren’t successful from the get go, it takes a lot of time to reach your dreams, but it is definitely possible. But if we realize what we want to do for a living when we already have jobs and worries like rent, bills or maybe even student loans to pay, it is most likely too late, because we need to live now and we can’t afford to just throw everything away and hope that we succeed in a drastically different field of work.

Therefore, we should all try to change the world and the old fashioned system in which everyone has to know what they want to do when they become “adults”. We should be given an opportunity to find ourselves, to try different things at an early age. See what it’s like to work in one field or another. Well, maybe not our generation but our children or more likely our grandchildren should be given this opportunity. But it’s up for us to change the constants in every way possible. And the best way is to start with ourselves.

Even though we aren’t given a clear chance, we should still try to achieve our goals as hard as we can. Maybe try to make something of your free time, i know there isn’t much of it, but more often then not we just tell ourselves “why should i bother, I won’t succeed anyway”, but what if you do? Isn’t this thought alone worth trying? I hope it is and we will put effort into it. And what can you know, maybe in a decade or so we will be much happier with our lives then we are today. Or maybe we will at least have some experience to share with our kids, so they won’t have to go through all the things we had to fight through.

The need of approval

The need of approval

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat. These are only a few social networks and apps you most likely use. Chances are that you check facebook daily, maybe even every few hours. The question is: why? Do you need it? Do you even like using this network? Most of facebook users just scroll through their news feed just for the sake of it. Open facebook, scroll, scroll, like a picture of a “friend” you honestly don’t care about, scroll some more. Rinse and repeat.

Maybe you are an active user and upload pictures to the internet on a regular basis. Why do you do this? To share your experiences? Or maybe you’re just storing these photos so you can easily access them later? Than why you care if people like your picture or not? Just think about it. Do you check your newly uploaded picture if it got more likes and comments? If yes, why? Have you ever asked someone why didn’t they like your new post? I was asked that question quite a bit. Most likely you’re doing all these thing because you’re seeking other people approval without even realising it.

I am not judging you by any means. I am just trying to make you think for a while. Why do we care what other people think about us? It doesn’t matter what some bimbo on facebook think of you. It doesn’t matter what your friends think. The only opinion that matters is yours. But do you even have one? Do you make decisions, or do you wait for someone else to do it for you?

If you didn’t like what i have to say, good. That means i’m right. Maybe you’ll think about it and understand that you don’t need to be like everyone else. Maybe you’ll come to a realisation that other people opinions don’t matter. And maybe, just maybe you will start to think for yourself and make decisions without external influence.
