I am at a crossroads in my life at the moment. I need to decide between security and my own beliefs.
The choice is simple: Do I look for a stable job or do I go ALL IN on my projects and myself?
It’s a funny position to be in because there are so many mixed opinions and beliefs about what security means to people.
Today I have had two conversations about the topic and through those conversations I have come to realise a few points:
- The only time we truly “loose everything” is when we die.
- If everything were to be lost the only thing left would be to start all over… and would that be so bad?
- If security from within does not exist, nothing you do or have on the outside will ever be enough.
- Our idea of security is shaped from our experiences and teachings – and those two things should be re-evaluated to ensure they are still up to date with the individuals we have become.
Personally, I feel torn. I have experienced having nothing and having more than enough – yet, I am still somehow afraid to just let go. I feel stuck between what I believe and what I “should do.”
Which is why I ask:
… what is security for you?
Would you go all in on yourself or still on hold to the safety rope?
