So I was watching Adaptation not more than an hour ago, and one of the lines made me ask myself the question: What do you want in life? What are you passionate about?
As you might imagine, I don't mean material objects (unless you are in fact that simple), but is there some key element that is missing in your life? And it's like...if you only had it...you would be the best version of yourself.
I know I'm severely lacking something. I don't lack compassion or understanding. And it's not my lack of a significant other...because I have opportunities for that. It's not a feeling of failure, because I graduated well. And it's not a complete lack of life experiences either.
I'm puzzled, though...because I'm very angry all of the time. And it's because I don't feel like I have an understanding of myself. Things mask or keep the anger at bay, but it is always looming.
I have an idea of what it might be, but I'm not sure this is the place for confessions.
well you should hit me up some time if you want, i think i know what you mean.
i'd say i'm missing something, but perhaps in a different sense. i feel like i know myself extremely well, but beyond that, i'm not too sure. i'm always mulling over thoughts like this though.
How is it that we all go off to school to learn more and come out understanding less?!?!?!
OT: I'm definately going to hit you up soon for a chit chat. Unfortunately, I have to be up in less than 6 hours for work, so this would not be the ideal time. I'm happy I'm not the only one that feels this way.
I understand the feeling... We want to do "everything" and see it, all, but we have to limit ourselves for modern life. That's stupid. I really sometimes wonder if I should just become an academic, because then I can peruse life to it's max.
I just want simple things. Good Food and drink, a comfortable life. Not MEGA riches. Not a mansion, a helicopter or butlers and the like. Just a comfortable life. That's my passion. Living life for living. Some people live life working harder and harder for more and more money, and they do NOTHING else! Why? You only live once, so enjoy.
