We are all living in a world where most people care so much about what society would say. We are usually obsessed with the idea of becoming successful and well-to-do in the future. That’s the very reason we educate ourselves and acquire skills that would eventually lead us to that “Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow”.
But we all know, that for us to be there takes more than just dreaming and hoping that we’ll get there someday. Sometimes, no matter how hard we try and push ourselves to carry on, we mostly feel that success is too far-fetched. That’s because of how things work in a workplace or in any institution which are normally perceived to be apprehended by rules and status. Whether we achieved being successful or not, people still question our capabilities and challenge our integrity. They usually tend to interfere and affect us with our decisions. The bottom-line is, whether we got a college degree or not, the “Culturescape” will haunt us.
However, everything starts with us. We, ourselves, can make the change. Whether we commit to this trending ideology, we are the only ones who have the final say on how we manage our lives. If we’re not happy with what we are doing, we all have the options on how to deal with it. Doing something that makes us happy and keeps our mental health intact is what matters most. We have the right to question everything and think about whether what we are doing brings out the best in us.
Education may be important, but in today’s world, it is the spirit of workmanship that will keep us going more than the degree we have been working so hard for. At the end of the day, we really have to figure out “what rules are really ‘brules’ or bullsh*t rules” because these ‘brules’ hold us back from truly living our most extraordinary life.
