Insignificance. It’s something all of us are afraid of. Some care about shining in their careers, others their personal lives and yet others want to be known as the kind of people who manage both with equal ease. But however successful (or not) you become; you always have that nagging feeling in the back of your head that you aren’t just good enough. Every day I sit down to write something and am confronted by this tiny voice in my head that asks me to quit. “What’s the point of blogging if nobody sees what you write?” Stats are down, the ‘likes’ and the comments are never enough and every time I write, the reception never seems to be enthusiastic enough. I mean, SURE, some people like what I write, but I can never ever get enough of it. And, to paraphrase my Economics teacher, “Human beings have unlimited wants and limited resources to fulfill those wants.”
But there’s something that I’ve come to realize in the few months I’ve blogged. There are a lot of people out there who are much better than I am at writing and probably way more experienced. Reading these blogs makes me feel sad because I realize I have far to go but it also makes me glow with pride at what our race has done in so short a time. Talent lies in abundance on the internet and it’s for us to go out there and get inspired into gaining the confidence to believe that we’re all unique in our own way and can achieve much in our otherwise short lives. But then again, nobody says it is easy and nobody owes us a dime. We have to accomplish everything on our own. We are all just another brick in the wall.
