Self-ignorance can be a massive obstacle to a meaningful life. It’s important to take the time to get to know yourself, your dreams, your desires, your fears, and your limitations, even if it means facing up to uncomfortable truths about yourself. Dig deeper into what makes you come alive and what makes you miserable. Given your situation, figure out what you really want from your life and use the answers to design the life you want to have for yourself.
There is a great quote attributed to George Harrison- “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.”
The bottom line is you need to commit the emotional effort to understand yourself and what you truly desire. Only when you do that you will be able to design a life that takes you exactly where you want to go.
