“Follow your passion, just do what makes you happy.”
This piece of advice used to motivate me but recently, it just made me feel more deflated. My life, as I knew it, had become a life based on how I thought I should be living – my passions, my own happiness had become elusive to me.
Without either to guide me, I had hopelessly drifted away from my core and toward the jagged shores of my unhappiness.
At first it was treacherous. But, as the months wore on, I was comforted by its perpetual existence within me. I began to converse with it, listen, learn it, understand it, befriend it, even put my faith in it.
Now, I have allowed it to be my guide and I, its most trusted disciple. For, I trust that my unhappiness will lead me back toward my core, my passions, and my own happiness.
