Autumn – thoughts about a new season

Autumn is officially here now, summer is gone and all the leaves are turning to pretty colors. Just as with these seasons, life has its seasons too. After summer comes autumn, after winter comes spring, so predictable. Not for life though, how is one supposed to know, what should happen after one period has ended?

I am in a part of my life now, where I feel like I am supposed to have everything together and know exactly what I want to do with my life, after I am done with studying. Everyone else seems to have a certain plan they think is right for the future. But I haven’t. I have no idea what my next step in life should be, heck I don’t even know what food I should be eating tomorrow. Seriously though, with so many options nowadays, how should you ever be sure that something is right for you?! How are you supposed to know, if you will not regret a decision later or not? Maybe this is just a (new) case of FOMO.  How should you be able to choose one thing for your life, if you have always been kind of good at most things, but never had anything that you were particularly good at?!

But can you blame someone from a generation, that always had all the options imaginable in life, the freedom to do nearly anything. I do not want to complain, no not at all, I know that I am extremely fortunate to live in a country, where I can get free education and healthcare etc. Nevertheless, this freedom makes it just that much harder to make any kind of decisions, at least for me. Sometimes I think all the generations before had it way easier in that respect. No internet, no Instagram, no international competition. I just feel like there is so much pressure, put on millennials to become successful and to show everybody how wonderful their life is.  No wonder mental illnesses are becoming more and more a thing.

The point is, life cannot be always good, autumn has to come after summer, that’s just how life works. Maybe I will never know for sure, what to do with my life. Maybe I will always be so afraid of failing, that I won’t even start something. Maybe I will have to give up some relationships, not knowing if I will regret it later on. Maybe I will never figure out what my “dream job” is.

I don’t even want to say, do what makes you happy right now, since some of those things will just make you miserable in the long run. But I guess the only way to handle this is to believe that there is some higher plan for my life, to believe that this life has a purpose and that I am here to fulfill it. Otherwise, seriously, where would the point of living be? So even though there are hard periods in life and believe me, winter is coming, there will also be spring again and with that comes hope.
