You know exactly what you want.
So stop telling that lie, the I-don’t-know-what-I-want lie, to yourself and everyone else.
In my opinion, I feel that we say that we don’t know what we want because we don’t want others to judge that want, whatever it may be. It just all goes back to why does it matter what someone else may think? We know it to be true, people are going to judge you regardless of what you do, what you like, etc. Is it right? Of course not. Why do people do it? I have no clue. You can’t worry about that though. Want what you want and keep it moving.
On the other hand…
What we want isn’t always what’s best for us. I want some cookies right now. Am I going to get some cookies? No. Why? Because I have too much of a sweet tooth and I’m trying to preserve these chompers.
You might be wanting to go on a trip, and you have the money to go. However, you know if you spend that money, you’ll be putting yourself in an unnecessary situation. That trip isn’t what’s best for you right now.
Or you might be wanting to get back together with someone, but you know they ain’t acting right and they cause you stress to the nth degree and get on your last nerve twenty-four/seven. That person isn’t what’s best for you right now (who knows if they ever will be. This is a type of want we tend to dwell on and find it hard to let go of, but listen. If you have to do it, and you know you need to…DO IT…there’s 7 billion people on this planet and that number is increasing so…)
Or you may be wanting this specific job, and it’s attainable…however through the wrong means. That job may not be what’s best for you right now, and if it’s meant for you, it’ll come about the right way.
These are just a few possible wants some of you may deal with sometimes. It’s perfectly okay to want various things, but you don’t always necessarily have to have them. Be honest with yourself and what you want, that way you’ll be able to assess if it’s something that you need. Why care about what people will think about what you want? That’s your prerogative. Do you boo boo.
