... Because It Might Just Come True !!!
Life is strange. It has you running after things which you're not even sure you want. And if you do want them you're not sure why.
What you want, may clearly be something which is not best for you. The question is when do you realize this?
All through our life, and more consciously in our adult life, we chase after people or things which we seem to want in our lives.
It could be someone who make us feel good about ourselves or someone we like spending time with. It could be a variety of personal or professional goals. It could be ambition, money, power or anything else.
And why do we run after these things? It could be because we feel that attaining that something might give us a sense of security; increase our self-worth; make us feel good inside.
What we should realize is that our desires are only a "means" to get to an "end" which we really want.
Many times we get into the herd mentality and start pursuing things only because someone else is also doing the same. Our siblings, friends or colleagues. They may or may not be clear on why they want something. But you certainly are unclear as to why you're running behind this. And you may not even realize it.
One of the hardest things to do in life is to figure out what you really want. I envy people who really know where they are and where they want to be.
All things considered, many times in life you even get these things which you so desire. And then you don't know what to do.
You've possibly spent a lot of time and energy trying to attain something. And when finally you do, you somehow don't feel the joy or satisfaction you were expecting. Something feels amiss. You keep wondering why you're feeling this way. I mean you got what you wanted you should be thrilled. But you're not. And this is not a good feeling at all.
This leads us back to the basic question of whether we really know what we want and whether we really want what we're running after.
