Fuck The Timelines


Stop Trying To Meet A Deadline

Timelines are fictitious. Setting a specific age when you should put a ring on your finger, buy your first house, or land your ideal career is a disservice to yourself since everyone has a different journey. Everyone moves at their own speed.

Even if you are aware that this is unavoidably true and that there is no finish line, it might be hard to let go of the notion of timelines. Not because they have hidden worth. But because everyone else treats them as if they are the most important thing in the world. You don’t want to be judged by the people you’re attempting to impress. You don’t want to disappoint or concern them because you care more about their perception than your own sanity. You’d rather appear to have it all together on the outside than feel actual, honest fulfilment that is hidden from their gaze.

True, the people who truly love you don’t care what you do as long as you’re happy, yet these folks may believe that timetables are the key to happiness. They may believe you’re squandering your chances of success because your definition of self-fulfillment differs from theirs. They may believe you are making decisions that will wreck your life when, in fact, you are designing a life that matches this changing version of yourself.

It’s simple to dismiss what outsiders think. It’s considerably more difficult to dismiss what the people who mean the most to you believe. It requires bravery to make decisions that may irritate others or raise concerns about your well-being. However, you must make whatever judgements are best for you without regard for how they may appear on the outside. This is not self-centered. It isn’t uncaring. It’s required if you want to get rid of the nagging sensation that something is amiss, that you’ve inserted yourself into a world where you just don’t belong.

Remember that it is critical to create objectives for oneself. It is critical to push oneself. It is critical to visualise your future and what you want it to include. But you can’t anticipate when you’ll finish your trip and cross that finish line, and forcing yourself to stay to a timeframe over which you have no control will only make you feel like you’re failing when you’re not. You’re making an effort. You’re doing your part. In the end, it’s all that matters.

Remember, timelines have power over you only if you give them power, if you let peer pressure to brainwash you into believing there is just one proper way to live. Your loved ones may be concerned about what will happen to you when you initially decide to live a life outside of their confines, but after they see you thrive, they’ll realise they were wrong about timeframes and that you can live your greatest life without them.

    1. I love you using the word fuck. I work at a restaurant so swearing is part of my world. However, I don’t picture you cussing.
    2. People worry too much about what a. what other people think and b. what other people do. We are all just trying out best.
