I want to share some first hand experience. From a person that was on the border. I hope it will maybe help you or maybe help somebody else reading this.
Except for the lucky few, human life tends to be hard:
At times, because we cannot control where we were born, nor control our future.
At other times, because we will make our lives too complicated.
At times, because we are chasing somebody else's dreams.
Almost everybody wants something good in their lives.
And somehow all the good things come free.
And when you are no longer happy with
love, coll air, sleep, clean water, simple food
Then you need to decide what you want
Then you need to go and get it
For nobody will bring or gift it to you
For everybody else is busy trying to be happy too.
Working hard is a concept
useful to religious, business and political leaders,
This is one of the strings they are pulling
But working hard is too often mistaken for working effectively,
And working hard is too often used to distract us from the deep
pronounced, essential, inescapable questions of life
Who am I, where do I belong to, where am I going.
So when you find you have no sense of belonging
Sit down and ponder, what sense of belonging is
Just another distractor,
For how do you know that finding a sense of belonging
Will change anything in how you feel?
As we grow old, some of us get depressive
You will never again feel what you felt when you were 15
Swallow this. Hey.
If you want your anything good.
If you want your sense of belonging.
Then sit down and dot what you exactly want to have or feel.
Then go out AND GET IT.
Some people are always happy.
Some people are always unhappy.
Some people change over time.
You cannot change what you are.
But you can go get what you want.
The above is not any kind of stupid slam poetry or something. Only some observations I made watching myself and others.
Take care, stay healthy,
