How do you express all those thoughts and feelings that you have? What makes you feel wholesome? What can make you instantly feel much better after a day of sadness? What do you do that makes you feel alive?
No one is good at everything, but, surely, everyone is good at something. Whether it’s playing a musical instrument, playing sports, making a work of art, or writing literature. Absolutely, all human beings must have something that they love doing. Heck, they don’t necessarily have to be good at it. As long as it makes them feel that they are alive and breathing, isn’t that considered as their passion?
Having a passion isn’t always easy. Maybe you’re better than a few people, but there will always be people better than you, higher than you in that imaginary staircase of ranks. With that being said, who the heck cares? You have to ask yourself: Why am I doing this? Who am I doing this for? Once you figure all of that out, you wouldn’t care that people are better than you, because you know that what you’re doing is not for them, not for anyone but yourself.
Realistically speaking, the things that happen in your life can always drag you down. Low grades? Family problems? Friends who don’t value you enough? Yes, that’s all there. One complete package that you have to experience. But, there’s no manual book that says that you have to push you into a pit of despair. No. You have a choice on how you react to what happens to you.
Imagine an empty canvass, a blank music book, a deserted field, and a clean sheet of paper. Now, put all those emotions running through your whole system into what you love to do. Put everything you’ve got into it. Really, when you don’t care what people think, everything you do is a masterpiece. Who the hell cares if you’re not quite good at it? You are able to express those feelings of suffering, pain, and anger into it. That’s what really matters, isn’t it?
Many might say that it’s a waste of time. People would try to convince you into doing something “worthwhile” rather than supporting you with what you do. Don’t be discouraged by them. They don’t understand that what you do is a part of you; Extracting it is a futile attempt because the more you try to eradicate it from yourself, the more you end up hurting.
Do what you love to do and keep doing it no matter what. In the end, would it really be such a regret? We only have one life to live and after that, who the heck knows? Have faith in yourself and do your own thing. What better way is there to live?
LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE
