WHAT IS LIFE? WHY ARE WE HERE? WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF OUR EXISTENCE?
Like a shadow, these questions follow us through our lives even if we never turn around to see it. Every individual on this planet has different stories and different perspective towards life. For some, life is just for living, for some life is about art and for some life is all about love. And for me?

Life for me is UNCERTAIN! Why? Because uncertainty leaves room for the unexpected.
I’m sure whoever is reading this will relate this post in some of the other way. I’m not sure what I want to convey, but it’s just me trying to express myself because of a lot of different experiences that I’m going through simultaneously. Currently, at this stage of my life, everything is changing every day, making it little uncomfortable and sometimes unfair. I know this change is for the betterment, despite what I feel at the moment. But, the past few months have been really tough!
For the people of my age or in their twenties the only conversation that tends to come up socially or at home is where are we headed to?
There comes a time where at one point, we all have to learn that these youthful endeavors have to end eventually. We start increasing our independence by meeting decisions of our own, but we also have to accept the responsibility that comes with it. It is time during which we go out to explore the world; challenge ourselves and strive to gain our own understanding of life. Most importantly, we have the courage to discover who we really are. We start to experiment with new possibilities. We want to learn what separates us from others. The desire to explore life increases our willingness to take the risk. Naturally, while attempting to integrate these elements in life we make mistakes, learn from them and continue with something else.
At best, we completely break free from the dependency on other people’s approval and learn to approve of ourselves.
However, we quickly and sometimes painfully – have to discover everything that we’re not good at. We discover our weaknesses and are confronted with our failures. But, in terms of our personal growth, it isn’t such a bad thing to be confronted with these things.
We start to realize that many of the activities we’ve enjoyed for so long, do no longer provide us with any significant returns. And slowly, but surely we are taught to use our independence in a responsive manner.
But, in life these things don’t always make sense to you.. you wonder what it is that you did wrong or could do better when you’re confronted with your weaknesses. You are always trying to think about the situation that has occurred in your life and the reasons for it, trying to connect the dots.
We all go through these moments when we’re shit scared and forced to think of how miserable we are. When all you can think about are your failures, mistakes, encounters with bad people & bad moments. When rather facing the world we choose to stay in our nutshell, where it’s safe and nothing wrong happens! And I know, these failures leave a crack in you and makes you feel low and want you to disconnect from this world.
But, sometimes what we don’t realize is that Cribbing & Self Pity is easy. Doing the work and putting in efforts to see the good side of life, that’s what is tough.
Life is made for messing up over and over again, but getting up anyway. Life is made for failing and surviving. Life is made for discovering something new every now and then. Life is made for heartbreaks and new loves that erases all of that pain in your heart. Life is for believing in love even after you have been broken. It’s all about feeling motivated again and feeling good about yourself.
Your life is given to you to live, to love and to find out what joy is. Isn’t it?
