Why is it so hard to move on in life ?

“You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened… or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on.” ― Tupac Shakur

Isn’t the above quote true? Ok, let me try one more time. Isn’t the above quote so fucking true? Why is it so hard to move in life? Why people are always scared of changes? Why people are reluctant to take calculated risks in life? Why people limit their ability and themselves cut the wings to growth.

Well, the reason which i have observed and now can pass on as judgement is this — people just don’t want to come out of their comfort zones; mentally, emotionally and physically. They are not necessarily happy with their current situations, but does not want to make any efforts to change it. They are not satisfied with their work profile or personal lives, yet are ready to rut in the declining moral fiber which in long turn is extremely detrimental to their own personalities.

I have never understood this ostrich mentality or may be i don’t want to live in illusions, so i think more about this than some other people. But really, how long you can live thinking that best things are around the corner? How long you can survive the bad times deliberately thinking that good times will come soon knocking at your door? There is a thin line between keep fighting and finish fighting. Better you decided, easier the life becomes.

So, there you are. Don’t count the pieces of life. Don’t wait for the pieces to come back in your life. Go ahead, pick the remaining and move the fuck on. There will be better things for you waiting in the wings. Just hope you will scrape through, just hope that in the end things will work out well. Trust me, it is not at all difficult to move on in life. All it requires is a blind step of faith.
