When we were younger, our parents and teachers always ask us the same old question, what do you want to be when you grow up? They keep us hopeful without telling us how arduous it may be for our answers to come true. Adults don’t tell you that when you grow up you may just be sitting at a remote office, from 9 to 5, facing the computer all day till you get myopia, get yelled at by your boorish boss and finally when you have time for dinner, you realize that all shops are closed. They don’t tell you that it’s not that easy to make life impressive and those who are actually undoubtedly pleased with their life are like 1%. They also don’t reveal that you may not be having that perfect relationship you grow up believing that you will have. At the end of the day, when you grow up, it’s merely that kind of job and the person you’re dating, meager.
Well, it’s urgent that we get things clear. Most of us are at a high risk of lamenting about the state of our future self. You grow up, start working and you also start to think that you’re nothing near impressive, the “impressive” you envisioned when we were younger. Yes, younger, not young, you’re still young. To lock such light lamentation, it’s vital that we search for what truly belongs to us as long as there’s something meager in our life. That way, at least we won’t be so disappointed when reality rains on us.
The feeling of hope often don’t correspond to the result we get in reality and it makes us wonder why we work so hard. Why did we even hope for so much? When it still rains every now and then.
