Where are you now?
What are you doing?
What are you up to?
How far have you gone?
From the part of the world I belong to, these questions are intrinsic parts of Life. They are ‘scales’ used to measure how one has progressed in LIFE. They are applied to various aspects such as work-life, education (school), relationship, next step, and so much more. If you’ve never been asked any of these, then, you’re probably ‘nowhere’.
Every stage and height you attain, either makes you a success or a failure. This leaves me perplexed because when one is at crossroads and one is neither here nor there, one becomes a victim to these questions.
“Where are you now?” “What’s your next move?” ‘Why haven’t you gone past this stage?”, are questions people deal with often. To add that these questions don’t often come from well-wishers is even more heartbreaking; “Where are you now?” is just a euphemism for “how far have you gone in life?”. Thus, reactions to these questions vary on the individual: Some become despondent and make irrational decisions, while some create a façade as though they’re actually working towards a goal.
However, with a sincere heart, you should ponder on these questions and assess yourself on how far you’ve truly gone in life. You don’t have to be a victim!
NOTE: The reactions to these questions are dependent on the tone with which they are spoken: It might be offensive, calm or sincere.
Stay Guided! ❤
