You know how you feel when you look around and see others of your own age actually accomplishing things in life and having detailed plans of where they wanna be a few years down the road, it feels as if you are not doing enough. I used to think that maybe I’m wasting my life because currently there’s nothing going on (due to the COVID situation obviously), and the uncertainty of what I wanna do in future used to give me all kinds of anxiety but now I’ve realised, it’s okay not knowing. The uncertainty, is not so bad because I might not have my future planned out but at least I have this element of surprise. I know that it’s a cliché but it’s true, no one knows what tomorrow holds and there’s a high chance things might not even go the same way as we plan them but that’s life, full of surprising twists and turns.
