Nevertheless, this pandemic broke us so we may be transformed. Little did we know, we were changing for the better albeit slowly. Even in the harshest conditions, there is a comforting prospect waiting for you to notice it. At first, I thought everything was going south and there’s no point to reach my dreams at all, but I was wrong. I was too naïve to realize that this tragedy is a painful yet necessary encounter to clear the obstructions along the way. It had to happen so I could gain insights from this experience that I wouldn’t have gotten elsewhere. It reminded me that this life is transient, so I must make the most of this borrowed time.
Upon entering your twenties, you realize there never seems to be enough time to do what you want. Each day passes so quickly, barely enough for you to keep up with big changes happening. Just pondering on how different your life was a decade ago brings tears to your eyes. As you grow older, you can’t shake off the fear that someday time is going to catch up to you, and you’ll be left with failed dreams and regrets.
Everyone struggles to find the energy and motivation to start, whether it’s doing something new or continuing unfinished work. Life is full of occasions that require you to work on days that you may not find the most excited or “in the mood” to beat deadlines. Despite your exhaustion and burden, you need to move forward. Indeed, getting started is the hardest part. But don’t you worry, you can try again and again.
As you grow older, you will learn to practice discipline in accomplishing your goals regardless of your mood or feeling. Life forces you to become responsible and resilient with your actions because face it, you have no other choice. Sometimes, you just have to deal with your doubts and inhibitions and do the work anyway. It’s not going to be easy, but it’s not impossible. Find a way to break down the physical, emotional, and mental barriers by inserting humor in your work, rewarding yourself after completing a task, or taking a break between busy schedules.
There’s no escaping the influence of social media, despite its perks and compromises, as it is now deeply rooted in every human interaction and livelihood in this digital age. Almost every human activity involves the use of social media, from manufacturing to promoting products and services in the business industry to communicating with people online. Given its huge grasp on us, we must never forget that social media doesn’t encompass our entire life.
It’s easier said than done to discipline yourself of your screen time because it has already come second nature to us. It feels like an instinct that you do when feeling bored, out of place, distracted, or when you’re searching for answers to questions. Nevertheless, make it your daily goal to be straight with yourself with whom you’re following and how their posts affect you mentally. Your mental health must always more important than what is in your social media account. Seek out help from experts if necessary.
