I’ve tried hard to tone it down or stop, and drop. But I can’t! That’s not me.
I know balance is important in life and I feel I do have a balanced lifestyle well other than having the weekly hangout session with friends or a fully day off to relax. But extracurriculars are my life. And as life is technically supposed to become more focused, I realize that for me I know what I’m passionate about but I can’t limit myself to just one category. I’m passionate about education and empowerment! YES! But I also care about health care and human rights. How can I just ignore the tugging of my heart strings but just letting one go? I can’t. I can’t do it because I’ve tried and it won’t budge. Too many experiences in my life has got me caught on these issues. Whether is be personal health reasons, or the many deaths of family members from cancer, health is something that has impacted me from the moment I was born. Human rights, again impacts my family in terms that I would like to keep private. And education with empowerment, I’ll never be able to let go or bury my personal connections to these passions.
I’m sorry because I know it’s hard to make a difference if one has so many focuses. And it’s even harder because with every passing day, I see it on college admission sites: focus. I am focused. It’s just I’m a bit weird in a way because I love too easily, and love too much.
So if you’re out there and you can’t choose, then don’t beat yourself up over it. Definitely try to let go, and do please if your life is getting out of balance. But if you can live healthily and happily with how you are now, please don’t change <3
