Howdy! When is the last time you tried to tell someone what to do without being asked for help? How did that work for you? Sometimes we get caught up in the idea that our lives should be emulated by others we feel don't have their lives 'together' or are directionless. You have heard, and may have even said, that so and so should have their own place by now or should have some idea of what they want to do… etc. Who the hell said? Too often the biggest issue we have isn't doing what we are supposed to be doing, but doing what others think we are supposed to be doing. It isn't that difficult to figure out what you want when everyone else leaves you the hell alone. :)
So many folks who have "direction" as they say feel that everyone should be where they are. They also believe that their direction means that they are good and that others without what they define as direction are not as good. Some folks that are subjected to this type of pressure will buck it altogether. Others jump aboard the direction train that leads them to someone else's dream instead of finding their own. What if they were went in the direction their heart and soul led them instead of where their big brother or sister persuaded them to go?
The funniest, and saddest in my opinion, part is that the ones who are giving the advice to those who don't seem to be running the same race, is that those folks don't have their sh*t together either. When someone has their ducks in a row, spiritually, emotionally, and physically, they aren't at all interested in persuading others to do what they do. They are interested in finding out what is going on for others out of love and curiosity. The idea of pushing someone in one direction or another, the idea of having a deadline for figuring out the rest of your life, and the idea that they would know what someone else is supposed to do more than that person themselves is not even had. Those who want to direct others without permission are usually not doing a bang up job on themselves.
If you are one of the directionless or haven't figured out your dream or dreams do your best to not let others opinions cloud your intuition. You will know when you know. We are not meant to all walk the same way, dress the same way, talk, think, love, work, etc. We are not to be carbon copies. We are not to live the life that someone else wants to live. We are here for our own personal purpose. It is your responsibility to figure it out or not. Life is to be experienced, enjoyed, lived. Go. Do. Be.
