What You Should do With your Life

 You should do what you want to do. Do not let others tell you what to do with your life, especially when your heart is set on doing something else.

I am not saying that you should do whatever your heart desires without thinking it through. But in the end, if you know deep down what is best for yourself, then why let someone else tell you otherwise?

It is not like they have your best interests in mind. They are just trying to make themselves feel better, by making you feel less for pursuing something different.

I understand that people have their own dreams and aspirations, which others don't always support. But it is important to do what you want to do.

The problem with doing what others want you to do is that it can make you lose a part of yourself. The more time and energy you spend trying to fulfill someone else's expectations, the less time and energy there is for your own.

It is like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. It doesn't go well because the two do not match.

It depends upon your own desires, but I would advise you to ask yourself what is it that you want in life. Then decide if the things which are important to you, are obtainable by living a certain way.

For example, if happiness is what you wish for, then ask yourself how happy have I been lately. If the answer is that you are highly unhappy with a large negative number (possible), then consider how much of this unhappiness has come from living in an unsatisfying manner.

Are you unhappy because of your job, or is it due to your relationships with others? If the unhappiness is from a dissatisfying way of living, then consider how much time you spend engaging in these unsatisfying activities. How many hours do you work at a job that makes you deeply unhappy?

How many hours do you spend at a job that is totally meaningless to you? How much time do your relationships consume, which are only bringing unhappiness?

If you are spending your most of your time at a job that is draining the life out of you, and this causes problems in relationships with others (which further decreases happiness), then consider finding a different job. Perhaps one which does not consume so much physical or emotional energy.

Then, consider how much time you spend with others who are draining your energy. Perhaps you can start to reduce the amount of time spent in these relationships which do not add any value to your life.

I think the key to a good life is this: To be able to look back on your life and say 'I have made a difference.' The only way I can see how you could do that would be by being happy. There are different kinds of happiness, but they all seem to involve some sort of mental satisfaction at having had an effect on the world around you.

If you want to be happy, then I would suggest that you just do the things that make you happy. It's as simple as that.

You know, I've been thinking about this for a long time now. And you know what? Ultimately, the best thing to do is nothing.

Yes, you heard me right. That's what I've decided.

You see, I've been thinking about it. In fact, I'm always doing something. Whether or not that is doing nothing...

I'm always moving. I don't know if you realize this, but I am in fact constantly moving at a very high speed through space. And that is not nothing.

In fact, you might say that doing nothing is quite impossible. But let's not go into that.

I've been thinking about it, and you know what? Doing nothing is the best thing to do. You clearly lack awareness of this fact.
