The Isolation

A couple days ago a guy named Sebastian Marshall wrote an excellent post called, "The Million Dollar Question". It spoke to me in a way that blog posts rarely do, and prompted me to write this post.

In the post, Sebastian is sitting by a train station, watching normal people go by, happily executing their normal lives. "I don't get to have this," he says. That's how I've always felt, too.

There are a great many benefits associated with living an unusual life. Those are fun to talk about because they can be inspiring, amusing, and provide readers with a sort of voyeuristic pleasure. Talking about the hidden downsides isn't much fun, but probably warrants some discussion, at least for the sake of being comprehensive.

Go with the Flow

I call it 'Go with the Flow' because that's how I believe life should work when I feel this way. Notice the word 'should', already this is indicating I am resisting how things actually are, and wanting that they be different.

1. I should find my passion. I'm not enjoying my work because I'm not doing what I love. If I had something I cared about I would love working and I'd be living a fulfilling life.
