On social media, we present the picture of a perfect life. As young people, we feel hurt when it seems our mates know exactly what they want in life and everything seems to be working in their favour to achieve all they want. Beautiful pictures, nice updates, hundreds of likes and comments, doing stuffs and still succeeding. We see all these and feel we can't achieve much. I have another idea about that.
You see, we are all lonely. I can authoritatively tell you that many of our youths including me don't have an idea how our lives will turn out. Yes we may have plans, grandiose as they may seem, we wake up each morning and pray that our paths be directed aright. Forget the laughter and smiles, deep inside, a soul is still praying and searching for identity. And this is not a bad thing. Life is a process and everything happens at its time. We are lonely for all I know, but we have hope that tomorrow will bring the right people along our path and brighten our day. Be strong!
If you feel your mates have achieved so much and left you behind, don't lose hope. Be strong. On this journey of life, we are lonely and running our different courses. Don't refuse to smile or help when you can; your star may shine from there.
From me to you, keep being lonely and amazing!
Till we get to the Promised Land, I shall be waiting for when you will pass me a glass of water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.
