Motivational quotes. You can count yourself among the lucky ones if they are currently not spamming your Facebook and Instagram feeds on a daily basis. Quotes that are meant to motivate you to “stay strong” and “endure” what ever it is that needs to be endured. A non-existing love life, a boring job, whatever – for every situation you can imagine, you will be sure to come across one super deep saying. One of the few ‘motivational quotes’ that I honestly like: Your dreams don’t work unless you do.
When you really are feeling so unhappy in your current situation, just take a minute and think: What can I do to make my life better? How can I improve my current situation? Your life is yours and Y O U R S alone. It’s up to you to take matters into your own hands and change what bothers you most. Only you know how you want to build your future, which path you want to take and where you want to go. Nobody is going to offer you anything for free and there will be no secret surprises and twists in your boring routine à la “trust the timing of your life”. It won’t happen. Y O U have to make it happen!
Your job bores the hell out of you and you hate your boss? Good, go ahead, quit and pursue your dream career. Your dream job doesn’t exist? Invent it. You are feeling lonely? Nobody will find their significant other while posting motivational quotes on their social media. No university course really fits your personality traits? Go and build your own BA. Whatever you are unhappy with – get up right now and change it right now. The only thing you have to lose is time. Be brave – you are responsible for your happiness.
