This is the passage that inspired the previous post. I’m highly interested in motivation and living a life guided by your dreams, especially if those dreams deviate from the typical mold created by society. I think that most people try to live that life simply because they want the spoils of its (unguaranteed) success, and others feel that this type of life is a result of them following their heart.
“Long before we know ourselves, our paths are already set in stone. Some may never figure out their purpose in life, and some will. There are a lot of us who are caught up in this hell we all live in, content with being blinded by rules and judgment. We live in a world where it’s more okay to follow than to lead. In this world being a leader is trouble for the system we are all accustomed to. Being a leader in this day and age is being a THREAT. Not many people stood up against the system we all call life…”
