Recent days , I have been pondering or rather realizing more and more that each person walks a different path.
Before I always longed to be so and so, or so and so. They seem to walk a path so easy, or they seem to be or have something I admired about. Last time, I really wanted to be like this slim girl cus she’s slim and quite pretty. I wanted to be like this charismatic girl whom everyone likes and so popular in sch. I wanted to be like that girl whom everyone looks up to and respects alot, although she’s not perfect. I wanted to be like someone else. Definitely did not want to be the girl who tries to grab male teacher attention all the time (ha ha)
Later growing up, I wanted to do what others did – I knew someone who was passionate about engineering, doing PE after that. and then someone who worked hard and is an expert in modelling software. I wanted to be those.
After these few months, I came to realize I can’t be like someone else, and I can’t compare myself to someone else. Neither can I compare someone to myself. Simply because each detail of our lives, down to every fibre of our soul is different. Not everyone has the same journey of life, and we cannot live even a second of the day as someone else. Or even long for that.
Seeing my friends around me, we grew up from primary school to secondary school, we seemed to be the same because we had to go through same things. But now, our paths has taken a life of their own, and because of that we should embrace the bits and pieces of it, instead of regretting, wondering, thinking we are not good enough. That often comes because we think others have it better then us. I often remind myself that no one life is perfect, even how so it seems, we all have our sorrows, not the same ones but still there is.
When I catch up with friends, it hits me how very different our lives are from each other, some relationships worked out, some didnt. some met new loves, some found old ones back. some had dramatic love life and some had stable mature ones. Apart of Relationships of course other aspects of life.. jobs, family, friends, etc etc.
ultimately that we embrace it, enjoy it, and live it abundantly.
and perhaps I still am amazed that we all have different paths. God made us one of a kind, and so our paths. That is really kind of amazing to me.. isn’t it?
