For some of us, there is an immediacy and powerful spontaneity that happens early. Life situations are such that particular traits are honed more than others, and we develop unique skills. Hardship and misfortune run rampant in our lives because that's how life can be when you differ from the pack.
Insights and preferences shift, though. What was really important at one time can seem different now. We start out with certain ideas and efforts, and then things happen. Socioeconomic factors affect whether we learn, travel, or otherwise develop diversity in our lives. We choose or do not choose to raise children. Society evolves and devolves around us, and we get to decide whether we will remain engaged with life.
Life doesn't always make sense. We say one thing and do another, and this can feel really bad. We have to take into account many factors sometimes. Occasionally, our own values contradict each other. This isn't ideal, and it's natural. A big part of comfort in existence comes with knowing we can't control everything and yet still trying to do our best.
Well hello there.
