How can we know ourselves better?

October 16, 2016 7:43am CST
I just quit my job again. It has been 2 years since I graduated from university. And I have done two jobs before. Now I still don't know which field I am interested in. How about you? How did you choose your job? How can I know myself better?

That is three very different questions. I personally don't know what I want to do either in my life. Yes, of course I am working a job, trading my time for money, so somebody else can get rich. But is that what I want to do all my life? Is that what you want to do all your life? Or do you want to figure out what you want to do and then reach for the stars? A job is a job is a job is a job. I know there are some that say they love their jobs. For instance, Jay Jay the Blue Jay always yapping and spreading the news. That's his job. He loves it? But eventually, the time will come where he hates it. That's why it's so important to find your passion. You say, my passion? Easier said then done! I know what you mean. I am working at a job right now, over by the big oak, and I don't hate it, but I dont' love it either. Do I want to do it all my life? No. If I figured out my passion and wanted to proceed with it? Maybe, and maybe not. You see, Bigfoot along with humans, fear the unknown. So when doing something like that, you fear what might happen, you fear if you will succeed, and you fear what will happen if you don't. To know yourself better, that is all up to you. A lot of people do a lot of contemplating and meditating on who they are. Alot of people can never move on until they figure out who they are first. You're life is like a big ball of yarn all rolled up in a know. Sitting and working your way through it is the only way that you can finally unravel it. Once unraveled then you can hold it out in a straight line and make it go in the direction that you want.

Thank you for your kind reply and calm analysis. I agree that for most of the people, a job is a job. And I am among the most of the people as well. Thank you for your kindness. I will try more and harder.

I think most of people employed in a job hate their jobs,trading time for money, but those lucky enough to be self employed enjoythe freedom. Like most people, l dont like my job but it`s a must,helps me keep a roof on my head.

Thank you. Hope you will be better as well. Even we may dislike our jobs on the moment, I think we may refresh our life with many other beautiful things.
