On doubt, or maybe not?
What is it with us people that makes us doubt? We doubt our family, our friends, our loved ones, even ourselves and our wants. Feels as being a tourist on a bus and every next stop coming looks more promising than the one in front of us. Where do you get off?
“Doubt … is an illness that comes from knowledge and leads to madness.”
― Gustave Flaubert,
You always have some form of doubt in your lives don’t you? Am i loved as i want to be? Am i as accomplised? Do i do a job that i love? What do i want from me? What do i really wanna eat?
“Doubt is an uncomfortable condition, but certainty is a ridiculous one.”
Honestly, it is quite exhausting. We have too many small desicions to make and somehow every single one of them seems so important and life depending.. We are only here once and we want to do it as enjoyfull as possible. But we can’t. So why worry?
“Life is to be lived, not controlled; and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat.”
― Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man
There is something utopian in the thought of never having to doubt everything again. But there is some relief in embracing whatever comes your way. Que sera sera.. An if i may wish to everyone your only doubt to be whether you expressed your love enough.
I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don’t believe I deserved my friends.Walt Whitman
