"Designing for the future", what comes to your mind immediately when thinking about this subject?
How does your future look like?
Above you shall find a video in which I am answering several questions concerning the future. For those who hate watching videos and find it way too awkward, I have left a little text beneath too. Let me know what you think. Let me in on your thoughts. Let the world know what's important to you. Spread your thoughts and emotions. I am curious to know what your thoughts are when it comes to the future..
As you all know I am a human being who is filled with emotion through and through. Emotions rule me most times even though I always thought that my mind would be much stronger but it turns out in
the end my heart wins either way, which I think is amazing even if it caused me certain uncomfortable situations and feelings after all. I have learned a lot throughout these years and I know
there’s much more to come in the future too which I welcome. I remember being so scared to move forward back then when getting hurt. I remember being anxious after having opened up myself towards
another human being simply because it gave me this feeling of nakedness and vulnerability but all of this was part of the journey, it made me stronger and wiser. You must now ask yourself: what
do emotions have to do with the future? What do feelings have to do with the subject “designing for the future” anyway? Well, let me tell you that I think it is very important to me to be able to
keep humanity alive. Lately I have been witnessing people suppressing their emotions and hiding them in order to not offend someone, in order to not make other feel uncomfortable, in order not to
get hurt. Doesn’t this sadden you? More and more people are being told to restrict themselves and that their emotions are not being appreciated which I think is just so wrong. I want to design a
future in which every single one of us is comfortable enough to be themselves unconditionally. I want to design a future in which we all feel save enough to be able to express what we feel
without being judged or laughed at. I want to design a future in which humanity rules. I know it is not easy to try again, to open yourself up again after being taken for granted but this is not
the end of everything. I know it’s not easy to stand tall and be strong after being hurt, and to love again after being cheated on, and to trust after being lied to but this is life. There will
always be good and bad and that’s great because imagine, how would we even be able to cherish the good without the bad? Life is a lesson learned, every single day is like attending classes and
instead of caving ourselves in I think we should support each other and be there for each other whenever needed in order to grow. It’s always up to you, if you want a bad experience to put you
down for the rest of your life or if you want to stand up again and fight against it. I have stopped counting how many times I have been hurt throughout these years and it sure isn’t ok that we
get hurt by others sometimes but I would hate to hide myself and to block everyone out of my life simply because I’m scared of having to go through similar pain once again. May I seem or sound
reckless and silly, but I’d honestly rather jump right in again and give this world a chance to proof otherwise. I’d rather love again, trust again and fall into a turmoil of feelings again
instead of having to suppress my very emotions I am dying to share. I’d rather fall a thousand times and collect bruises for all I care instead of not living this life fully. So yeah, this is how
I would design the future. I’m not concerned about how fashion will change over the years or flying cars which might exist some time soon or crazy modern mansions or robots for that matter. I
sure am curious to see what else this world has to offer and is going to offer to us in the future but the well-being of each human being is so much more important to me than all these
materialistic ideas that might come to one’s mind when thinking about the future. Let’s save our souls together as our souls shall be the only thing which will live forever, no matter what the
future may bring.
