Sometimes Life Confuses Me

Sometimes life is so overwhelming that I'm not really sure where I am at or where I am going. During those times I want to be frustrated, but I know that the times that are rough and confusing can be so good for me. Those times are what build me up through my weakness.

I am thankful that in my times where I don't know what I want to do with my life and I get frustrated because I can't answer the one question everyone keeps asking me. It's a question that, yes, it needs an answer but not knowing the answer won't be the end of the world. Making up an answer or trying to force something to happen isn't going to help me.

We, a lot of times, try to force ourselves out of confusion rather than embracing it. We try to make things exist rather than just realize that sometimes we just can't have all of the answers. We need to figure things out, but rushing doesn't change the fact that we don't know.

Rushing doesn't create results. Most of the time, actually, it creates mistakes. It forces us into situations we were trying to avoid in our confusion and all the times we would say "I don't know." There is nothing wrong with not knowing, but there is something wrong with forcing yourself to be somewhere you aren't ready to be.

Don't be ashamed of your confusion. Figure out answers and ask people questions that will help you, embrace your confusion. Allow time to play things out and don't rush yourself into being someone or somewhere you shouldn't be. It's okay to be right where you are at.
