Yes, it has dawned on me, life is a burden.
I finally, fully accept that statement. Or wait,
was it a famous quote? or a popular film dialogue?
Anyway, Why now and how?
Well because, I understand discontentment and I know what it does.
What does it do?
It drives you insane, bipolar, depressed and chase what you think you want.
Do you mean chase your dreams?
Yea, that should have said that first.
(It is kind of weird that I am interviewing myself. But, I am kind of a big deal on my personal website.)
The cycle. We aspire, we dream and work for those dreams. We reach them but still don’t feel like we’ve arrived. We try to live in the moment and then dream again. We keep wanting more, expecting more, getting our hopes high and hearts broken. We get fail, we depressed and then find a way to get out and in again. Some where on our way, we realise that in a way it was discontentment all the way, that got you to achieve it all. The only problem with discontentment, is that it comes back after you have it all.
Oh no, I don’t like how this sounds!
Well, me neither, even though I just wrote it.
But, this is life and the burden really is that we will fall,
into potholes that were de-marked with a bright yellow caution tape.
