Life

Life isn’t easy

When you are young, you have hopes and dreams for your life. You dream about going to university, getting a degree. That’s usually followed by getting a job you love. Somewhere along the way, you hope you fall in love with that special someone, maybe have a family with them and grow old together.

Sometimes though, these remain dreams.

The reality, which no one warns you about, is quite different.

Sure you might work hard, go through university or college and get a job. But then, after several years in that job or profession, you might start to question if its worth it. Or you might be in several jobs but have to deal with office politics that affect your love for the job.

You might find someone you love but no one warns you about the challenges it takes to keep that love going. No one prepares you for heartache and loss. No one tells you that sometimes, you can become the worst version of yourself. No one teaches you how to navigate the complexities of relationships.

Life isn’t easy. It’s certainly not a smooth ride. With its ups and downs, it is imperfect and fucked up. And if we aren’t prepared for that, the falls can seem harder. The bumps along the road can seem bigger. And getting back up is tougher.

You might be the most intelligent person on the planet. But it doesn’t mean you can figure life out.

Because life is harder than rocket science.

    I know what you mean. You’ll find yourself second guessing so many decisions, especially after a tough break up. The hardest thing is telling yourself you did the right thing when everything else is saying otherwise. I’ll repeat what I said, write through the pain. Let it heal you in its own time. Till then, I’m here. For anything.

    Life is sure harder than rocket science. Because it has not rules or principles to follow. There are no theorems and no logics. It is what it is.
    For those who find love, sometimes it makes them think – is it true that they are settled? Or is the partner trying to change them? Are they able to identify themselves? So on and so forth. The one thing that I know is true is that one has to believe in themselves. I think one that works and nothing else.

    Sure is. But it’s also more powerful than rocket science too. Everything is a learning curve and we wouldn’t be who we are meant to become if someone told us all the pitfalls of life. Thinking if you during these tough moments Sanch. And they are just that – moments x

    True that. Life isn’t easy. The thing is even if you get all that you dreamed off there is no guarantee that you will be happy. Sometimes we need to take difficult decisions and hope that they are for the best.

    Sometimes, we just have to tell ourselves we’re doing the right thing, Sanch. There’s probably no way to really figure life out. Or maybe life isn’t to be figured out at all – you have to admit, even trying to do so is an overwhelming activity. Just keep writing, writing the pain away. Hugs! <3
