I know exactly how you are feeling. You may be worried about what college will accept you and what leadership opportunities you will have there. You could be wondering when you will meet the love of your life.
In all reality, we don't know when anything is going to happen for sure. Life is full of surprises, and sometimes, we don't always understand why things happen. We have to be content with not knowing the future.
It is terrifying to know that there are a lot of things in the future that we have no control over. We all work so hard for the things that we care most about, and sometimes, it still doesn't matter. Does that mean we should stop working hard? No.
It is natural for humans to wonder about what their life will be like in the future because it is something to look forward to. But actually, are we all really looking forward to working full time, paying taxes, and then doing chores that we have dreaded as a child?
Of course, there will be some things in your life twenty years from now that are different at the present moment. I would sure hope so. However, there is no reason to worry about who we will marry or where we will be living. We are all intelligent human beings who are constantly working hard.
The young generation that we have right now has so many goals and aspirations that it is hard not to think about how different our lives will be. What iPhone number will be on next? Will we have cars that can fly? Will people be living on Mars? Who knows?
All of these things are exciting, but no one is going to have an answer for you. As long as you are trying your best in school or in your job, then you are setting yourself up for a successful future.
We all go through hiccups in our lives, but it is what we do to get out of it that matters. It is okay to get help from other people. No one can do everything alone. If you really struggle with the unknown, talk to a few people about it and get some advice. I can guarantee you that your parents or grandparents have all felt the same things that you are feeling right now.
If you spend too much time worrying about the future, you will miss the things that are right in front of you. Take time to appreciate what you have right now and stop worrying about what might happen twenty years from now. Make the most out of your time and your resources because, at the end of your life, you're going to wish you had more time.
