"It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees."
THIS. This quote. Seriously, I am very happy for those who have a passion for something specific but I do not, nor have I ever, and I always felt like I just wasn’t trying hard enough. But that doesn’t mean I can’t be happy and enjoy all the other things in my life. That doesn’t mean I’m settling.
This this this!
