In few weeks, I will be doing something I have never done before, be independent. I know this might sound very weird but this is a huge step for me. Not only because I have grown accustomed to living with my parents all my life but also because I need it. I need to be independent in order to be responsible. I don’t really consider myself a “responsible” person. And to be fair, the responsible people around me don’t really have it all together either. But not just responsible though, I want to be accountable for my actions without having to watch my back for what my parents would say or think. We all have important phases in our lives in which we make a big jump, and most of the time when we enter those phases, we know that things will not be the same again forever. I think I am about to enter that phase and honestly, it’s a bit scary. I guess that’s the thing about the future. The uncertainty can make it scary sometimes because I don’t know what the future holds for me. We all have those moments when we have to make big jumps in hope that it would favor us in future. But just as much as it can be terrifying to make a jump, it can also be really exciting. I mean, isn’t this what life is all about? I have been looking forward to this for a very long time. There are so many good things that could come out of it. I can finally start living life for myself and not for the people around me. It’s basically like being free. Just that it might come at a cost (literally) and would require me to develop a good self discipline in all aspects of my life. All these is part of self build-up so I know that the challenges would be worth it. And that’s the big thing there. If you believe in yourself and you think the challenges would be worth it once things work out, why not try? Why not try to make that jump? Well, it would be totally amazing if everything works out. But in reality, we all know that it’s always about the journey and not the end road. The new journey would be full of thorns and rocks and valleys, but that’s how everyone’s journey is anyway, so no complaint. As I am about to embark on a new life journey, I hope it all goes well. If not, I will be okay. Also, if it doesn’t, then it’s going to be one hell of a blog to write about on here. Efharisto, Stranger.
