Ever seen animals in the zoo?
Yes, they have synthetically decorated enclosures that resembles their natural habitat. Yes, they will never ever have to worry about going hungry. But what’s the point?
Most of these animals are at the brink of depression. They are literally dying of boredom. Sadly, none of them will ever truly get to see their true self.
Think about it. what’s so different between them and us? Most of us are confined to our cubicles, 8 to 5, just to justify our rights to occupy our place in society.
Doing meaningless work just to make sure we don’t get replaced by younger, healthier, and more attractive specimens. Perform tricks that we hate, but still have to abide because that’s what put food on our table.
You can choose to continue to live like a zoo animal. Or you can choose to find your true purpose for your existence and live your life to the fullest.
True, living life to the fullest means that we will meet with plenty of challenges, failures, and disappointments. But don’t let these obstacles hinder you from the things that matter most.
It is through overcoming these adversities that we will truly discover ourselves. So, it’s about time for us to step out of our enclosures, and face whatever the world out there has to throw at us.
