Food for Thought: Confusion

Food for Thought: Confusion
Confusion. It's a state of the mind. It's a befuddling element. It's a word that is as hard to define as it is to understand. It is by all means something that both the heart and the mind find hard to grasp. Are you confused? I believe we all are. At some point and in some way, we are struck with bewilderment.

As I write this, a lot of things are going through my head and all I want is to lie on the grass with my hands in my chest and my eyes fixated on the stars. There is something so calming about it. I guess oblivion isn't so bad after all. It relieves you of life's traumas. It takes away the pain and the problems. It makes you forget. But would that really be worth it if you have to disremember the good ones that come with it? I guess everyone's life is a mess at some point. Mine included. At least in that way we're all even. But life is complex and for some weird way, that complexity gives us the thrill of the ride. You'll never get the adrenaline of the highs unless you've experienced the depression of the lows. It's like a roller coaster. Life is a huge roller coaster. The question is would you let the lows stifle the highs? Will you let confusion drown you? Don't.

I guess there are times when you have to admit to yourself that you are lost, baffled, mystified and perplexed. You have to accept that your mind is filled with all sort of things and that in cases such as these, you have to trust your heart. Sometimes you have to believe in gut feel. I'm not saying that we all have to leave our logical-analysis-OCD-stricken self for good (for me at least). What I want to say is that maybe it's about time to be comfortable trusting our heart and instincts, don't you think?

There are times in my life that I feel confused. Sometimes I just want to be alone and think deeply on what should I do in my present life. I'm happy that I have my husband by my side to always cheer me up even though sometimes he is annoying. I love the fact that despite of our questions and confusions in our life, there are some people worth giving your time and effort than think of what is not there. Be thankful for what we have and let it be. :)

I think that life is just like that...sometimes confusing, sometimes not fair, but it is our life and it is well worth living. So we should push to the maximum, because isn't it interesting. It is like a game. So many obstacles and levels to see :)
Just always take it one day at the time. Kiss, Mel

Thanks Stella! I actually wrote this a week before I posted it. I was skeptical at first to hit publish but then I thought that it might be helpful to anyone who feels or felt the same way as I did. I believe I've found my rhythm back. Slowly... but I'm getting there. Thanks!

Anne said...

Thank you Bryce!

I am also often confused. I have so many goals and think I want to accomplish but sometimes I get lost along the way. I think thats normal and if anything it motivated me more. I agree, its best to just trust your heart

Mimi Gonzales said...

It's okay to feel lost once in a while. I'd been in this situation just last week. Everything was blurred and all I could think about was how to get through the week. I hope all goes well for you, though! Cheer up! :)

what you wrote is so true, sometimes the hardest part is to know our limits or admit we have a problem.

Thank you Nikita! You never fail to make me smile with all your lovely comments so thank you as well!

Anne said...

Yes these things are big motivators. Thanks Justin!

Anne said...

Thank you Mimi! I was confused about a "big change" and whether or not to say yes to it. It both scares and excites me and I believe that's a good thing. :)

Anne said...

Yes. That is true Juju. Thank you!

Anne said...

Yes, it takes courage to do that.

Anne said...

Thank you Anna!

Anne said...

Indeed. Thanks Hannah!

Hi Anne,


I feel just as lost as you are right now. Sometimes the worst part about being confused is also feeling like you're not being appreciative of the life you have already. And then that just makes you feel guilty...


Sigh, I hope we all find the joy and hope we once had as little kids :)

Thanks Tya!

Anne said...

In the end it's all a matter of perspective. When I wrote this I was juggling between two things in my life. After so much thought and pondering, I came to realize that it was not as confusing as it was. My heart knew what I wanted. I was just afraid from jumping out of my comfort zone. I'm not anymore. :)

Caroline Mason said...

Shireen said...

I spent most if not all of my 20s being confused and not knowing what to do with my life. Many people cringe at arriving 30 years old but I welcomed it, it was the end of a very confusing decade and I vow to start fresh.

Wonderfully written. And yes, I totally agree that there will be times where we have to admit to ourselves that we are lost in order to find the things that are missing.
