Myopia

To my chagrin, I guess I can never grow empathy for people who just don't want to see the bigger picture, choose what's beneficial in the longer run and plan their lives ahead. Don't get me wrong, of course I do know that life is full of uncertainties and that the quote "if you fail to plan, you're planning to fail" holds no absolutes, but what if it has been crystal clear that they do not want the current situation to persist for their whole lives? I shouldn't be surprised if anyone refuse to start anew just because of the fear of not being able to do better huh.

"It's often easier said than done."

Hey, you know what, nobody is ever 'ready'; it's really just whether you want the change to happen badly enough. No one can ever be sure enough what are the smarter decisions to make, because as everyday passes more wisdom is accumulated, so based on what should we derive that it's time to stop waiting and just make that best bet we can?

Doing the 'right' things (or even, making the 'right' mistakes) requires maturity, and maturity consists of adequate understanding about one's self— which helps one figure out what one desires in life. This understanding does not come free though, the cost is lots and lots of mistakes and regrets. No other person can learn our life lessons for us, and human will never learn from history, we're all screwed anyway (because we're all gonna die), so stop whining, make the best choice you can make and suck it up.

Once you've matured enough, you will naturally pick up the right glasses to fix your shortsightedness in life.

God helps those who help themselves.



ps: pardon the terrible flow, apparently I'm not in the best state of mind now.
