The hidden strength within Daydreamers’ appearance of “naivety”.
One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise. This philosophy fitted on to my early adult life, when I saw the improbable, the implausible, often the “impossible,” come true. ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Crack-Up
This morning I quarreled with my father because of diverging views.
He’s much more susceptible to fear than I am at this moment. He’s so disillusioned by what he feels as the irrecoverable loss of 9 years of committed work. He’s experiencing like a sort of mourning and my proactive mindset is not of any help at all. Especially because my relatives attempting to be supportive, as a matter of fact end up to instill several doubts into both my parents’ minds. It would be better if they confine their aid to nod without agreeing with our decisions.
I can’t understand this lack of empathetic sensitiveness. They’re so eager of the obviousness of their suggestions that they’re completely blind in front of the reaction showed on the other side.
Often I wonder whether my relatives are convinced that I’ve my head up in the clouds and consequently I lack of any glimpse of pragmatism, only because I don’t want to lower my expectations anymore. I’m perfectly aware of the risks that I’ve been taking and the sacrifices I should have accepted to fulfill my purpose-to-impact.But for them it isn’t a proof of my determination, but of my naivety.
I’d like to know why being realistic should necessarily means get bogged down in poor ambitions, like finding a job as underpaid employee permanently hostage of others’ project for my future. I want to be autonomous as everyone aspires to be, but I don’t see how a purposeless job can provide this independence for me. If I look around at the existence that lots of folks carry out I don’t find joy and self-confidence. It doesn’t look like their temporary financial safety gives them serenity and meaning to their life. They’re always struggling for any further duty to perform. They’re never satisfied for the goals they’ve already achieved: the ownership of apartments, trips they made, useless stuff they bought, etc.
