Do Limitations Define You?

We are known to have our limitations in life. Yet we are known to challenge these so-called “limitations” because of the fact that our defaults do not define us.

From conception, we are morally awakened by cultural norms and attributes that define the distinctions between what is right and what is considered to be wrong. But as with everything else we encounter in life, conflicting norms develop our perspectives on what exactly makes life, worth living. Diversity of culture and religious influence help contribute to a nuance of thought that delves into alternatives and limitless characteristics for a truly vital lifestyle.

The ever changing aspect of everyday life provokes the most arcane and individualistic actions and thoughts. These changes help enable autonomy and a more suitable environment for the people that live within a society. With robust accusations and entitled visions, the mind will forever be boundless in its pursuits. Fundamentals will not be looked at with absent thought, but will indeed be fully recognized and challenged at a constant basis.

Our parents will encourage us to be individualistic, yet at times they will dilute the content of that very message. We are constantly invigorated with absolute creativity and the expectation that our desires have reason and are truly important. But often times these thoughts are degenerated by the dissuasion incurred by those that we love most in life. The very people that want us to thrive and to be individualistic, quell our very urges to do so in many circumstances. Often times, people have nobody on their side in their imaginative pursuits. Whether we are interested in a job, protest, religion, political party, travel, etc., many times we will face harsh banalities and unsettling emphasis on why “that just won’t work.”

With these deprivations and the idea of limitations, comes the time to contemplate for oneself if their judgments have meaning. Many people give in to the mass objections to their most excited inklings or proclaimed thoughts. Others reach beyond the limitations set by their peers and seek their desired interests. And others leave their desires dormant, only to revisit them on occasion or with high frequency, yet never fully take control of their innate desires and allow the masses to diminish their conception of how they want to live.

Such exemplary moments in history that are most remembered are the one’s where limitations gave reason for mental cognition and utmost influence in society. Ruthless efforts for free individualistic rights drive consciousness and eliminate the destructive nature that complacency has on the confines of the imaginative forces that drive people beyond the limits set before them. We are not a product of our peers if we understand that with the idea of limitations, there will always be the idea of limitlessness. For the ever changing are the ever living, above all else.
