Since I could remember I’ve always been a curious person. I’ve always wanted to know why things happen, why I couldn’t do something or how things operate. I used to get frustrated when I never knew the answers or when people would look at me like “who comes up with questions like this?” My parents for sure were annoyed by it but hey, what can you do?
Fast forward, I’m twenty- two I’m still curious. I always want an answer because it prepares me. I like to handle situations with the utmost knowledge whereas if I don’t, there’s room for error. The curious child in me is always searching. For what? - I wish I could tell you. The toughest part about growing up was understanding that my views and, the views of people I come across are completely different. What’s bad for me might be good for them and vice versa.
On the other hand when I know the answers I tend to ignore them because it's not what i expected. I remember the first time I was told I lived in a fairy tale world. Contrary I grew up watching a bunch of princess movies on VHS thinking, “my life will be perfect”. Unfortunately, i was not told that disney princesses were not real. Eventually life would hit me with a bag of bricks and whip my mentality into shape. Unfortunately again, I’ve learned that the hard way. What I’m really trying to say is stop looking for answers. Once i’ve stopped that, my life has gotten more manageable. Not saying don’t ask questions but do not be afraid if there is no answer. It will come, and if it doesn't? Well move on. There will come a time when you do not even need to ask, you’ll already know. In the mean time take risk, do things you wouldn't normally do. What’s the fun of being curious if you dont take chances? See you next thursday, same bat time, same bat channel!
