Exist by goRillA-iNK Exist by goRillA-iNK

A lot of people don't know what they want to be when they grow up.
No matter how young or old one is, this never really goes away.


Unknown individual #1: "Should I be this, or should I be that?"
Unknown individual #2: "That's a great question, I'll let you know if I learn the answer first."


I hope you like it.
Thank you for the views, faves, and comments.:heart:

This is gorgeous. And I really, really like that you don't just say "be different" - you're saying be exactly who you want to be, whether that means being different or not. Just what I got from it. Love it~

I've been having a lot of trouble figuring out what I want to do in my life. I went to school for a B.A. in graphic design, became extremely depressed, and dropped out with a 4.0. So I got a job, and now I'm stuck in limbo like many others my age. I have plenty of support from family and friends, but there's still no momentum in life anymore. Now I'm sitting on the couch at a party, reading this to one of my closest friends in a similar situation, and its oddly comforting for us. I don't know why, but I feel slightly liberated.

Thank you! :)
I appreciate you letting me know whether or not my grammar or spelling is correct.
I've gotten to be a bit of a stickler when it comes to grammar.
I was saying a person that's in debt.
Please see example of this spelling/real word. >>>[link]<<<
There are other examples I could have shared but, I felt that one was enough.

I envisioned there being a possibility, but I did not know it for sure.

I love it. Everyone struggles with this. But the only person that they can truly be is themselves. It also helps to know yourself when choosing a career. It depends on the person. :)

Thank you- thank you! :heart:
I agree. It’s important to know yourself.
Most people don't know themselves, they think they do, but not so.
I use to think I knew myself four years ago, and then I learned more about myself since then.
Now I know myself much more then I possibly thought I could.
I'm sure given enough time this will change and I'll look back and think: "Who was that person?"

Everyone changes--not matter what. I think it's just part of aging and maturing. I'm in the same boat. I've learned more about myself in 2 months than 3 years. I look back at myself back then and don't understand the things I thought I did and I don't like the things I used to. :)
