What is the most dreaded question people can ask you in a conversation?
For me it's this one. What are you doing in life, what are your plans?
It happens more than you think especially during job interviews. I never know how to answer them because I'm not doing anything and I don't have any plans either. It gets me nervous instantly. It feels like everybody in the world has this vision for themselves and they have it all planned and can see it happening in their minds.
People dream of having kids, making big trips, having promotions, have a big house, nice garden, buying this or that, going to concerts/festivals, starting a company, running marathon, lose weight, get fit etc etc
I literally have none of those, yet people expect everybody to have a vision for themselves, how they see their life and how they will achieve it.
I 'm so jealous when people suddenly see the skies clear and have an ephipany to know what to do in life. I know these guys who were aimless like me and suddenly after a holiday one of them says I'm going to be sailor and 1 year later he has succeeded, he has a life, earns money. Another one was just failing at exams all the time then suddenly decides to become a cook and now he has a restaurant. A third one I know was on the path of self destruction, having no real place to live, no money, no degree and suddenly 2 years later he has bought a house, wears fancy suits and knows nothing but success in life.
It's so weird but especially frustrating. I can't see myself ever having one of those moments where everything becomes clear. It seems I don't enjoy anything.
