We spend most of our lives planning on our next move,dreaming about our future and careers. We spend about 12years stuck in a classroom, we are told education is the key to success. On my wall hangs my bachelors degree and honours degree yet I don’t feel like I have achieved nothing.
I waited for that big Aha! moment for years now, that moment when I feel like accomplished something but nothing. I remember years ago when I passed matric, my classmates were jumping up and down. They were going through emotions that I didn’t feel. I was being congratulated, people where happy for me and my parents were so proud of me.However I felt like a loser, busy concentrating on the marks .I thought damn!!!you could’ve done better.
All the education in the world, but still I felt inadequate. I wish someone told me how to be confident, how to be courageous and take risks.I look at my certificates and I feel like I am not cut out for this.sometimes I feel like a headless chicken, running around in a maze of confusion.
I wish I could change a lot of things about me,however I am stuck between not having enough will power to get out of my box, my stubborn nature,anxiety and fear. Uhm….all in all I am trying to figure out a lot of stuff. I can assure you its way too hard to act your age, too hard to transition into adulthood and to be the exception not the rule.
