Imagine that you’re playing a video game. You can’t remember the introduction and the tutorial was absolutely terrible. Now you’re in the middle of the game and you still haven’t a clue of what you’re actually doing or what the main objective of the game is. You try your best though and manage to complete a few other objectives that give the game some meaning. As you go along you get better at playing the game, but you still have no idea what you’re doing. That’s life.
Look, we were all born without instruction manuals. We’re doing our absolute best to play the game of life and succeed, but we don’t really know what we’re doing. That’s absolutely fine. There is no ultimate rule stating that we should all know how to function and behave perfectly during our existence here on the earth. We can only do our best. So if someone or something is trying to shoot you down just remember. You’re doing the best you can and sometimes your best just isn’t better than what you have to offer at the current moment, and if that isn’t enough, we can remind ourselves that the people surrounding us are in the same boat as us. Everyone has their insecurities just like you and me. Don’t ever let those insecurities or feelings of uncertainty deter you from trying your hardest.
So now we know that nobody has a clue what’s going on. Especially me. I’ve completely accepted the fact that I just really don’t know what I’m doing at all, but I’m learning on the way. Sure I’ll make mistakes here and there. Hurt myself and others in the process, but I can’t let that frighten me from moving forward. The fact that we actually don’t know what we’re doing is something that should excite us. We have all this opportunity to learn new things through trial and error. All the experiences that we have are an important part in what helps us become the best version of ourselves. For that I am grateful. Do not let the fear of the unknown stop you from doing your best, because in the end, you’ll be thankful for at least having that experience in your memories.
