Reflecting on family and life choices

It's amazing how wonderful living life is. When I was a kid, I did not know much of the world yet. All I knew back then as a kid were the memories of my toys and video games, the many kinds of food I ate to reminisce of those times, the parties that I went to, and most importantly, the memories that I have spent with my family. I remember as a child that I loved to play with transformer toys, Pokemon Diamond and Pearl (the golden ages of Pokemon), and even just living in an unfinished house (still live in that same house). Looking back, never have I once regretted living at that time.

As an adult, however, you start to realize that things have definitely changed during your life and you begin to see things differently than when you were a child. As a man in his 20s, I am starting to see that difference now. Nothing has been fun as it was before. I would start to feel this sense of not having much motivation and I would sometimes get oversensitive about things that do not even relate to my life. I can safely say that it's hard being an adult. It's hard to even avoid all this drama and politics that people make and it's detrimental to people's health (including my own). However, I am still fighting for my place on this planet. I'm fighting to live on this planet and finding out my true purpose in life. Till then, I'm content with being an adult who's still living with his parents and I never want to destroy it.

You may be wondering why I am writing about this. It's because of one video, in particular, that got me reflecting and questioning my life choices. That video was where a father responds to his daughter's video of making fun of someone with cancer. Long story short, their family's daughter has put her family in danger all because of her father not paying for her insurance. It may have something to do with their daughter making fun of someone with cancer but even so, it kind of pissed me off a bit. Although it affected me, it made me realize how wonderful it was to have a loving and supporting family. My family mattered more to me than anything. I'm happy that I was raised to be a good person because, in my heart and soul, I would never do something as cruel as endangering my family because of a stupid insurance bill. It not only made me reflect on my relationship with my family, but I feel this also impacted the choices I make in life. Now I need to be more careful when making decisions.

I'm not gonna even bat an eye to social media, however, I feel this world is getting crazier and crazier every single time. There's always gotta be something out there that squanders the living hell out of people's lives and I'm growing sick seeing that kind of behavior in other people. Nothing that I can do about it, unfortunately. However, I can control things that I am in control of. What I can do is that I will try to become a better disciplined and decisive person. I wanna strive to become those wise people in those movies who I consider to be guardians of their fate and others. I want to strive to become someone better each day.

I hope you guys feel the same. We all need help sometimes, especially when it comes to family. I hope you guys have a wonderful day moving forward in this crazy world we live in!
