You spend your life believing or thinking that you know yourself completely. Only to wake up one day and realizing that you are not in control of your own life and you don’t understand half of the things that are going on around you. People tend to idealize themselves rather than accepting who they really are. I guess that’s fine if it works for them..
Some other “lucky” people have a tougher road to travel. When you know exactly who you are, where you are coming from and where you’re going… you would think things would be easier, but it’s quite the contrary…. Life is harder, because only YOU and YOU only, can see that truth or ultimate destination of your plans. You may have the clearest idea of your life’s direction, but other people, usually people who love you, won’t share this clear vision. Even if they are completely involved in your life plan. It can get very frustrating when you think someone who loves you will understand, and you inevitably reach the conclusion that NO ONE understands. Right? Right. That doesn’t mean you will desist from doing things the way you do them or trying to reach your goals, or that you will love them any less, it just means that every now and then, you’ll stop in your path, breathe deeply, gathering up extra courage to continue, and then once again you’ll realize, regardless of how in LOVE you are, that we were born alone, and we die alone. So that has to mean that even when in a couple, with kids, with a happy life and a succesful career, you LIVE alone. Kinda sad…. But true.
