RE: Think like a Viking: Part eight

I suppose I am still building my character, learning how to find my own path.

Till a few years ago, I used to follow others recommendations. Felt that I needed to be lead. That people who are smarter than me, or earn a lot more than me, knows better than me.

Slowly, I realized that most people are lost. And don't know what they are doing. Whether they are going in the right direction or not, they don't even know.
That's when I decided that I need to find my own ways.

It's funny that most people have a solution to my problems, but they don't know what they need to do about theirs.

Maybe people are happy to show others the path they don't have to walk on.

Hopefully, I will learn in the future to stand my ground😅


There's a lot of people out there happy to promote to others about what they should do in their lives but are unable or unwilling to do it themselves. So many of them are just as fractured and broken as the people they are trying to help as you point out, or simply have no clue.

I'm not sure where it comes from but these days with social media and all, people's need for validation, I guess they use it as a way to increase their feeling of self-worth...I think that can't be found externally though. Unsolicited advice is never welcome in my life.

Walk your own path. Sure, find assistance along the way, but make sure it comes from the right sources and that you've determined how best to assimilate that assistance/advice/recommendation into your own life. What fits one may not fit another.
