I often find myself asking the above question. But the veracity is that nobody actually knows who they are because figuring out oneself is an ongoing process.
Finding it a bit vague? Well, it can get a lil bit confusing but I’ll let you through it.
Life tests us at every point and irrespective of the result, the idea of who we are and what we want, becomes clearer with every exam that life takes. There comes a point or a situation in everybody’s life that forces us to take a decision that can be either for ourselves or for others. And with every decision, we take during those situations it forms up our life. So, however, you are living right now, in whatever situation, whether good or bad, is the result of your choices, thoughts, and decisions that you made throughout. So, if something is not going the way you thought it should be going, then all you have to do is change your thoughts and make some different choices and decisions that you wouldn’t have made earlier.
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BECOME WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG?
In our juvenile years, when the teacher asks what we want to become, everybody had an answer to that question. But as we grow up some of us fail to answer this simple question. Why? Why can’t we answer this austere question? Is it too difficult to answer?
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BECOME NOW?
Well, the truth is we are confused in our own thoughts. When we are young, we are unaware of the practical world out there and just answer as per our own understanding and knowledge at that age. But as we grow up, we become aware of the practical world, we get to know the actual problems, actual emotions, actual scenario behind everything and that clouds our judgment, our answer to this extremely simple question. Because as we grow up we get to know about the vast opportunities that are there which we didn’t explore yet, our interests, our passion which still needs to be discovered and all these factors create a delay in answering this question. So, the only solution to this question is to KNOW YOURSELF.
KNOW your interests, KNOW your passion, KNOW your aversions, KNOW yourself first. Ask the question “WHO AM I” to yourself and if you can answer that question with confidence then you actually know yourself and you can then figure out the other question.
In this digital era, where social media is both, an opportunity as well as a distraction we feel more anxious when we see others living their lives while we are still struggling.
Don’t let the internet rush you and deceive you from your dreams, nobody is posting their failure. Just remember that!!
You are right where you’re supposed to be and sooner or later you’ll achieve your dreams. Just keep on working towards your goal!! Don’t feel perplexed if you still haven’t figured out who you are or where your interest lies or what you want to become. Just remember you have ample amount of time with you and patience is the key. As I’ve already said this, age is just a number. So, don’t let it become a barrier or an excuse that you can’t do it.
YOU CAN DO IT. YOU CAN DREAM. YOU CAN ACHIEVE. YOU WILL ACHIEVE.
Knowing oneself is an ongoing process so trust me since I’m on the same stage, figuring out myself, I know somewhere deep down my heart that one day I will figure out all these confusing questions and come out with a firm answer and that’ll be the day when everything will be much clearer. It’s a little blur now, but I am trying. And I guess that’s what matters at the end. TRYING.
If you will not take that first step towards the pool, how can you judge if you can swim or not just by looking at it, right? So, just dive in! GO TRY FIRST. It’ll make you come one step closer towards YOU.
So, it doesn’t matter if it is a bit hazy right now. It’ll be clearer soon! Just hold onto that thought and you’ll figure out everything that’s currently going on in your lives.
